Crazy Gecko is a wonderful place, I stayed in the river view bungalow and the setting is spectacular. Thanks Andy and all the staff. Good food in the restaurant. For a backpacker it can be a bit out of budget but if you want to...treat yourself for a couple of days that's the place.More

run by a Swiss couple, the Crazy Gecko has five rooms and a great restaurant on a terrace. all in Swiss quality, but with the local charm. our dinner was just great, and fortunately the prices are not Swiss, but keep local too.

We'ved had an awesome stay at the CrazyGecko. We got two bungalows directly at the river with a shared balcony which was great because we were travelling with a befriended couple. We stayed there for three nights and we can only recommend it. The bungalows...are really great - simple, but awesome. On the balcony you have a hammock, a mattress and a table with two chairs and a great view on the Mekhong also for the moonrise!! We also ate there a few times - especially in the morning - and the food also was delicious! Especially the fish BBQ was marvelous! A catfish not to be forgotten. A special bonus goes to the owners, because they are very friendly, helpful and always caring and they gave us a lot of tipps not only for the island but also for the border to Cambodia. Much appreciated and highly recommended! Thanks again for the great time! Greetings from Marina+Jonas #kopchailailaiMore

We ate there one night with 3 friends, first of all the food was pretty plain, no great deal and so kind of expansive for its quality. Moreover,another friend literaly got expulsed from the bar because he didn't order anything and was drinking his own...water (what a shammmmmme). I would NOT recommand this place AT ALL.More

Went for a couple of large Beerlaos as we walked past in the early evening. Friendly service, price good. Bar was well kept and maintained. Menu looked good, but we didn't have the opportunity to eat here.
