This place is hidden in one of the alleys of Borrocay. It is very central and you are on the beach within a second! The owners are very friendly and the rooms clean! Dont expect a great view. but do expect a nice clean place for a reasonable price with great smiles of the staff!!!

This hotel is just what you pay for. Very simple and very basic. Staff is lovely and the rooms are just ok. The airco could not cope well with the heat of boracay so the room was most of the time hot. Shower basic but ok. The hotel is a bit difficult to find, I was lucky that the tour... More

Isla Gecko was hard to find at first in all the small streets but was a very short walk to the beach and all the restaurants etc. as it's down a little back street it was very quiet so this was a great location. The room we stayed in was very basic and a little on the small side but... More

We stayed for 3 night in this wonderfully located hotel. White Beach is a 3 minute walk from this location. The staff were friendly and attentive throughout. The hotel is clean and the chilled water coolers are a nice touch. Our 4 person room was slightly small for 4 adults consideringbthe price we paid.

At first it was a little hard to find the hotel. But there is government people working around the main streets. So they will show you the way. The hotel was overall clean, and the staff was very kind.

The place is very near the beach less than 5minute walk. And also walkable distance to other stations and also D mall which is right behind. The place is as it is shown in the photos.
