This hotel is old, run down and smells musty. The rooms are small and old and smell. The linen is also old and uninviting. There are no windows in the rooms so the air never really clears. The set up of the hotel is poor and the sound travels making privacy almost nil, even just for conversations. The price was very high for this hotel over 2000 pesos per night. I had book the rooms online. I got the hotel, took a look, and smell and went immediately next door to what was call villas inn at the time a 3 story white building. The rooms where very clean, nice bathroom, and the rooms have windows and terraces, tv and a fridge, which isle gecko did not have. To top it off this place was cheaper and twice as nice.
The people that run and own Isle gecko are very nice but that doesnt change the fact the place sucks. All the reviews you read about this place that are good are coming from the heart of good people that enjoyed the friendliness of the owners and ignored the reality of the crap box of a hotel that it is or they havent stayed anywhere else to compare it to. Out of the 6 people that book online to stay there, only 2 actually ended up staying there. We even lost some money by canceling but it was well worth it.
Do NOT stay there, it smells in the rooms, there is little privacy and its not cheap.
