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

I will start off by saying that the resort is beautiful and full of potential. The food is delicious and the Filipino staff are lovely. It is in a great location, making it easily accessible to many spots on the island. However, unless you are a diver, the two Dutch managers show little to no interest in you. They have... More

Once I got over the shock of spending 900 for a traveller room (prices seem to have gone up loads from the lonely planet quote). I really enjoyed my stay here. Amazing staff, nice rooms and really comfy beds. Clean facilities, hammocks and nice garden area, right on the beach. Was also able to hire a scooter. Restaurant is relaxing... More

We found Action Geckos when looking for a dive school. We had already been staying somewhere else and ended up going back a few hours later and booking in. We booked a dive with Arno for the next day, I had done my Open Water on another island in the Philippines and I didn't feel that confident afterwards so my... More

Action Geckos Resort is located in a short distance from the airport, (10 minute drive with tricycle, 50pesos) You drive from the mainroad to the beach to a beautyful garden with palmtrees where the mainbuilding with restaurant is located. The managers Arno and Kaisa gave... More

This is a sociable and laid back travellers resort with good Finnish management. I stayed in the most basic room which was a single bed, fan and table and shared bathroom , it was simple and basic but for 650 pesos it's pretty good value. The best rooms are cottages right on the beach but they were full. Food is... More

Over the course of 3 nights stayed in 2 traveler’s rooms (650 - 900P) and a beach bungalow (2000P). Rooms were comfortable and clean, and the bungalow was very spacious. The fans were not really adequate for cooling things off at night. Wifi only worked by the restaurant, and even then it was very temperamental (typical of Camiguin). Had a... More

It's a great place, but the prices are too high, especially for the (beach) bungalows and the activities. The beach is not very attractive and smells, the hospitality could be better, especially by the owners who are around all the time. No personal talk or any kind of interest during our stay, only a short talk at arrival. Staff is... More

Dear Desirée and Dennis, Thank you for staying with us. I'm sorry you felt the way you did. When I spoke to you upon your arrival, we had a nice talk, and I told you if there's anything you need help with, you can always approach me. Since neither of you ever did, nor did we ever see you interact... More

Me and my fiancé stayed here for 4 days . It's situated on the beach and probably the best beach on the island. We were greeted with a warm welcome . The staff here were all amazing and very friendly. We dined in the restaurant a few times as the food was really good and also good portions. The mango... More
