Camiguin Action Gecko has everything you need: nice location, excellent food, perfect service. Needless to say, everyone in the place - from Michelle, who runs the resort, to the waiters (especially are Maya) - are warm, always helpful, and vibrant. They make you feel at home. The place is quaint and quirky which adds to the good experience. And of... More

We stayed at Action Geckos about one year ago and are glad to see on TA that the resort appears to be doing well post Typhoon Haiyan. We chose to visit Camiguin on our trip to the Philippines because we wanted to get away from places that are over crowded with tourists and experience something a little bit more secluded.... More

I was in the Philippines three times in 2013. I was in Action Geckos three times in 2013. I was welcomed back on a first name basis each time; the staff *simply* remembers your name. It's kind of like coming home. I did my Dive Master certification in the professional care of Wing, the instructor, and learned loads from JetJet... More

If you are a snobby European who does not want to experience the Filipino culture and be secluded, than this place will be great for you. They do not serve even Filipino food. I do not recommend this place for Americans or any body that wants to experience Camiguin for what it really is. Manager here is a snobby as... More

I have very mixed feelings about this place. I sought this place over all the other places, because of the most positive reviews. I wish I had paid closer attention to some of the more negative ones. I would have had the best experience ever. The staff was the friendliest of all places I had been to in Camiguin. Honestly,... More

Dear Steve Thanks a lot for this review. We are always trying to listen to our customers and then improve our resort & service. I'm sorry that you were not 100% satisfied which is our aim. But there are some points I would like to clarify: There are no official shelters on Camiguin. As soon as we realised how strong... More

I wish I could have given this place 3.5 stars, it deserves a 'Good' not an 'Average' and it is certainly capable of getting a 'very good', however i felt on this occasion i couldn't quite give it that. The location of Action Geckos is great, right on the beach and the pick-up/drop service offered is flawless. Michael, the bus/truck... More

I always enjoy sleeping with the sound of waves crashing and this place truly delivers on that! The grounds are very attractive and the rooms are set up very well. The restaurant area is at the heart of the resort and is a pleasure to sit in. We really enjoyed all of the food, especially the pumpkin ice cream which... More

We stayed here for four nights and although we were quite unlucky with the weather, we still had a great time. The rooms are lovely, cosy and romantic. Specially the one that face the sea with no obsruction. You get an unhindered view of the sea right from your bed. The food in the restaurant was amongst the best we... More

The resort was absolutely one of the best place we enjoy in Phily. The resort looks exactly as you can see in website. ( we do a research before we come to Camiguin ) Because... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Camiguin is one of those best-kept secrets that attracts divers and those "in the know". Diving is not 'my thing' but in this jewel of an island - still relatively unspoilt in comparison to Panglau Island - Geckos is the best. Why? Simply because of the foreign (Swiss/German) hands-on management that look after your every need. The personal touches from the attentive staff, and of course Ulrich and Michelle, are worth the money alone. Trips up the volcano etc are easily arranged, the rooms clean and the beach bungalows excellent. Food its international and the beach barbecues a great way of meeting the other guests. Go - but don't tell too many friends."Every island on the Philippines should have a place like this." – LonelyPlanetSightseeing/Attractions Tip: No swimming pool, but with Ardent Hot Springs only 3 km away, who needs one? Avoid Ardent Hot Springs at weekends unless you want to share one of the pools with 30 others. ... more   less
