“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

Although we didn't stay here we visited from across the road from the Fijian we couldn't help but be impressed by the way in which this resort was kept. They have established a very well presented native village with themed Bures showing some of the life the Fijians lived in pre European times. This included some interesting facts on cannibalism. We booked in for dinner there that evening and have to say that we were impressed by both the quality of the meals but the prices as well especially compared to the Fijian resort. can't comment on the rooms etc but if the rest of the grounds were anything to go by I think there would be no problems.

We were very comfortable at Gecko's and their food was excellent. It was the first place we stayed so we didn't fully appreciate the good water pressure and the fact that the water was always hot. Later we realized that this is often a premium at mid priced resorts and hotels in Fiji. The staff was truly friendly and caring, they chatted and gave us good advice when we asked. We enjoyed being able to access the beaches at Shangri La without having to put up with their higher prices and crowds. It was also very clean. We were enchanted by the frogs and geckos that frequented the outdoor areas. Our only complaint: we were two friends travelling together so wanted separate beds. There was one very good bed and one soft squishy one. Maybe I remember this better because I lost the coin toss..lol. Overall, a very positive experience and I would return.

Room Tip: All the rooms appeared to have equal desireability as far as location. We were furthest from the po...

Very impressed with this resort! We weren't sure what to expect for the price but I think it is definitely great value for money (if not a bargain!). The rooms are clean and tidy and very spacious and the shower has great pressure. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and the grounds are lovely. The fire and dance show on Friday and Sunday nights was fantastic! The food was great and good value and it was quick to come out unlike Shangri La's food service. Shangri La and the beach is just a 15 min walk ($5 taxi ride) from the resort so very handy if you have friends staying at Shangri La and you require a cheaper accommodation option. Highly recommended and would definitely return if staying in the area again.

Perhaps not as flash as the mobs of 5 star resorts in Denarau, but just as clean and comfortable and a wee bit more authentic, and I was able to feel quite special as opposed to just one of hundreds in the larger resorts. I felt there was a genuine 'Bula' at Gecko's rather than the corporate 'Bula' of those other resorts. It was very comfortable and Managers Darren & Helen led by example and from the front in looking after their Guests needs and desires. I really enjoyed the cultural show that they have twice a week, and the dancers interacted with the Guests after their performance...great for a touch of the real Fiji, as were the village style buildings with in the resort grounds. Having tasted food and drink at other resorts nearby I felt the food and drink at Gecko's was not only better value but tasted better as well. I did use the gym over at the Shangri La, for which I was greatful and at a fair charge I thought. Overall I had a great time at Gecko's with my Partner.

We were going to a wedding at ShangriLa Resort so we were looking for somewhere to stay that was close to the wedding but let us experience a more "real" Fiji than a large resort. Gecko's was perfect as it is just across the road from the footbridge to ShangriLa's island. The staff were extra helpful and the restaurant was nice for breakfast and dinner. A taxi ride to Sigatoka and the driver they called for us was so helpful as well. The room and bathroom was clean.

What a lovely place to stay. Not real flash but real comfortable. We had a great time. The show and staff were fantastic and it was the best holiday we have had for a long time. So relaxing and the meals and drinks are reasonably priced. Nothing is too much trouble. Thanks Geckos for making my 50th birthday so special

Room Tip: the rooms are all fantastic

This place absolutely charming. The staff was always pleasant and helpful. The room was very comfortable with an oversized bathroom which is always a plus. You cannot beat the location of this hotel. Everything we needed was within walking distance. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this property. I highly recommend this place.
