Looking for a romantic and rustic place in Camiguin was a no brainer for us. Camiguin Action Gecko sounds weird but the beach front hut was perfect. They arranged our hut with flowers and decorations that commemorated our honeymoon, a year in delay. There were hammocks, boats and the sun. No pool, which was ok for us. The restaurant had... More

3rd time staying with Action Geckos, 3rd year in a row. This time round, the trip is planned more on diving (like an addiction) but the thing I love about staying with them is the personal touch. The staff (boat crew included) greets and addresses you by name, they remember your preference once you've said it (the serving staff remembers... More

Located directly at the beach, this unique cosy place makes you feel like home. Their staff is super friendly and the food delicious! Nice hammocks to relax, book a dive, or you can rent a scooter to explore this beautiful island. You can find waterfalls, the claim sanctuary, good snorkeling & diving spots, mantigue island, white beach, volcanoes (Hibok Hibok... More

A friend of mine (Filipino) and I (USA) were visiting Camiguin a few weeks ago and chose to dive with Action Geckos. The diving was amazing and very relaxed. Fritz was a wonderful Dive Master to have. What really made our visit with Action Geckos amazing was after the conclusion of our dives. My friend and I stayed there the... More

We took our Advance Open Water Course here and it was an awesome and fantastic experience! We learned a lot from the instructor, Arno, and the other dive masters. We met other divers (mostly non Filipino) who are regulars and they keep coming back to dive here for years! The food is also great here! I saw some reviews saying... More

OBS: 7% extra fee on card payment!!!! If you are thinking about taking a diving certificate, do it with Action Geckos on Camiguin! Really great place with very nice staff! The backpacker room 900php is good value if you don't mind "cold" showers. Very chill. Restaurant was not amazing nor cheap, and breakfast was expensive for a backpacker (200php). Took... More

I do not dive here like those younger europeans but have had breakfast of pancake and filipino and also adobo for lunch. It is the best one I eat here on camiguin. Beach is near and very good sand and place to swim after eating.

The place is located 10 minutes West from the airport. It is also just 10 mins away from the port to get to White Island. The island is actually visible from the hotel. We stayed in one of the cottages which was very room (could it three more extra beds aside from our bed) and very rustic. The place was... 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 Panglao Island - Camiguin Action Geckos is definitely the best. Why? Simply because of the foreign (European) hands-on management that look after your every need. The personal touches from the attentive staff are worth the money alone. Trips up the volcano etc are easily arranged, the rooms are clean and the beach bungalows/cottages excellent. Food is international and the beach BBQ 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." - LonelyPlanet Sightseeing/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
