La atención del personal de la posada es impecable, desde la llegada al puerto estan muy atentos a ubicarte hasta el lugar. Los tours son muy agradables, sin afanes y los guias tienen una excelente disposicion y sentido del humor. Las instalaciones son muy aseadas, organizadas y ofrecen servicio de restaurante, la comida es deliciosa y en enormes cantidades. La ubicacion del lugar permite visitar sitios muy agradables en la noche. Sin duda, una experiencia muy agradable. Staffs are very welcoming at the hostal and their attention is impeccable, from the moment you step on the port to the time you get to the room they are friendly and helpful. The tours are awesome full of fun and enjoyable, the tour guide stff is very patient and full of joy. The place is super clean, organized and they also offer services of restaurants, and to be honest the food is amazing and lots of it, can´t leave the place hungry. The location of Posada El Gecko allows you to have an incredible night due to the closeness to the beach where sunsets are breathtaking. The best place to visit in Capurgana... no doubts of going back.…
2 hour wait with no apology before the 1st dish came out. Pizza was good but not worth the wait. Asking for the bill they struggled to split it and didn't have any change and couldn't use card........ better options close by
The place is well located not far from high street and little shops and bakerys, it is important to know that there is a bar restaurant in the place itself and therefore there is music going on until 1am, personal is friendly and helpful, you can get pizza and beer or other drinks in this place.
Stayed here for one night on our way to San Blas. The ladies were super helpful- doing our laundry really quickly and letting us pay in dollars when we realised we had run out of pesos. The pizza was great too. The private room we took (70k) was basic and could have done with a few extra touches like a lamp and hooks for towels. My main issue with the room though was that there were a lot of mosquitos and no net. The night we stayed there was also a power cut meaning the room got ridiculous hot without the fan - we had to leave the front door open for the slightest breeze. It was a quiet, chilled place though, and would recommend for a quick stay on your way through if you have your own mos net.
we went visiting the restaurant (wich is the best for italian food and drinks) and as we saw the beautiful place, we decided to stay for our last two nights, lucky they still have an extra room for us since it was really crowded for the semana santa... wish we could have stay for longer, they made us feel at home and took care of us! the place to stay if you are in Capurgana!
we stayed at la posada del gecko a week ago after we traveled around Colombia for a while... the place was fully booked, so i guess we were lucky we made a reservation before! At night we ordered at their restaurant and the pizza was just terrific! Our room was clean, private bathroom and fan. We also booked one of the tours they offer and went with a group to visit some nice beach es around. Wish we could have stayed longer.
I think Alberto is the most fabulous owner i met in my backpacker life. He is really awesome and helpful. The Posada is a good place to stay and warm hospitality soul. I will surely come back again, Capurgana is in my heart.
Went to the hostel in April and stayed in a private room. The place is very calm and very close to the beach, which was a plus. The owner is Italian and he cooks delicious meals. The wifi was slow, but that is common in the island, was looking to disconnect anyways. Recommended.
Ok hostel. No air con, only fans to keep you cool at night. The courtyard is a nice area to hang out in. The kitchen isn't really for guest use which is unfortunate because the food in town is expensive. But the owners were nice enough to let us use their kitchen. The owners who run the place are never around if you need anything which is kind of annoying. Most people in Capugana are not super friendly or helpful, they just do their own thing. We would recommend going to Sapzurro.
I had a great trip of the san blas islands and I end up in Capurgana at la posada del gecko! What a great , relaxing atmosphere! Alberto's simple Italian cucine is amazing : best place in town to eat. The rooms are cozy and clean.
