“Perfect for the family holiday we wanted!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

We recently stayed at Geckos for 6 nights with our 3 children. We decided on Geckos after reading the reviews and wanting a smaller resort. We were very happy with our choice!
We had interconnecting rooms which was perfect for us, giving us all plenty of room (especially when the kids wanted to watch a DVD in the evening). The rooms were very spacious and very clean.
Geckos is set in the most beautiful grounds, which was really fantastic to wander around;the kids especially loved looking for the (many) frogs and little mud crabs and wandering in and out of the huts. The children had alot of freedom here, and on a couple of occasions were wheeled backed to us in a wheelbarrow by the Gardener!
There is a very lovely atmosphere at Geckos, its very calm and friendly. All of the staff are very attentive and chatty and helping you decide where to go at breakfast if you fancy going out and about for the day. Helen and Darren are always around for a chat and a catch up on what you have been up to, they are clearly very proud of Geckos and all of the staff.
The pace really livens up on the fire and dance nights, and this when there are often many visitors to Geckos for dinner. All of the staff just take it on their stride and make everyone feel very welcome. The food is tasty and good value too.
We hired a Car for our stay, mainly to give us some freedom as a family should we want it, but you don't really need to as there are Taxis available. We visited the town and Natadola beach. We also went to the sand dunes which our 10 and 8 year old absolutely loved! Best to go a little later in the day or early morning though as its quite exposed and very warm out there!
All in all a great time, in a relaxed environment which wasn't as overcrowded as some of the bigger resorts...perfect for us!

Both me and my partner stayed at the Geckos Resort for 2nights. We had a friends wedding at the shangri la and felt that it was well overpriced and the Geckos was a much better option for us. The service and rooms were great, lovely and friendly staff, food was amazing and very well priced, we were both very impressed by this. My only fault would be that it is abit of a distance to a beach but they do have a medium sized pool to keep cool. Overall it was just what we needed for this occasion.

I recently stayed at geckos for 6 nights, We came as we attended a wedding at the shangri-la (which is right across the road-google maps makes it seem like a taxi ride but its walkable) The rooms were ok, My friends queen bed was as hard as anything but my sisters queens was comfortable. THE STAFF are great, They FIJIAN men & woman are such a delight to deal with and wanted to help where ever was possible, The mangers are not of fijian background and are not as friendly, I started to notice whenever we had a group of people come from the shangri la to eat, Helen would be floating around being all nice and bubbly, But once shangri la stayers left she was back to being no where to be seen. But thats ok because i started preferring it that way. But the staff actually care and love having you there, I feel they are walking on egg shells around the managers, I feel they need to be recognized more for the hard work they do, They might not do much in the office like the managers but they made me want to come back, and I'm hoping it is under new management when and if i do decide to return.

Kalevu, General Manager at Gecko's Resort, responded to this review, September 10, 2012
Thank you so much for taking the time to review our resort and point out some of the finer features, like the staff and the proximity to the other resorts. We agree with you and feel we have the finest staff in all of Fiji. Most have been with us for 5 to 10 years. We trust and respect them and know they can handle many things with the well-loved Fijian smile and genuine thoughtfulness and care. However, when a large group is at the restaurant, of course we will jump in and make sure things are running smoothly. But, when things slow down, we must return to handling the not so fun, yet essential administrative tasks that keep the resort going. If you return again, we'll gladly share a drink with you and toast our wonderful staff.

We recently had seven nights at Gecko's Resort and could not have been happier. Right from our initial contact with reservation the contact from Gecko's was personal and friendly so by the time we arrived it almost seemed if we had know the managers - Helen and Darren - for years!
Nothing was any trouble, the staff are happy and friendly and are always there with a lovely smile to help with any needs.
The bedrooms were clean, spacious and our beds made even before we returned from breakfast. Meals and drinks suited our budget and the cultural show was fun and entertaining - the resort was laid back and casual. Many thanks again to Helen Darren and staff - fabulous!

Room Tip: All rooms appeared to be the same standard.

My boyfriend and I recently travelled to Fiji for our anniversary, and stayed at Gecko's Resort. You could not ask for more friendly and helpful staff! They were just fantastic!
The food was delicious and a really good price! The island dancing show was fantastic also - and free - unlike other resorts!
We ran into a little bit of trouble - having my passport and $$ stolen in Nadi - the managers were so great, letting us use their internet and phone, offering to let us stay if needed. We cannot thank them enough!
The rooms were nice and thoroughly cleaned everyday - nothing super fancy, but nice enough to stay in for a week.
They have a taxi service and spa service which are easily booked and quite cheap!

THANKS GECKOS! :)

We recently spent several nights at Gecko's resort and found it a very clean and comfortable, simple hotel. The accommodation is spacious, and includes coffee making facilities, which we really enjoy for an early morning cuppa. The cultural show was excellent and very well attended (book your table for dinner those nights, even if you are a guest at the resort).

The food was excellent - particularly recommended is the 'reef and beef' and curries, but it was all good.

As we had rented a small car we were able to explore the local attractions, including the Sigatoka Dunes, Natadola beach, Nadi, Raymond Burr's gardens and the Sigatoka fort - all well worth doing.

My recent trip to Fiji for a family wedding was made more memorable by my stay at Geckos Resort on the Coral Coast. Set in beautiful gardens with a lily pond, it was the most beautiful setting to chill out from my busy life at home. The managers, Helen and Darren are very welcoming and their staff are just beautiful. They all addressed me by name from the first day. My room was truly a home away from home. The Fijian dance troupe who performed for us at dinner time were spectacular. The cultural tour was fascinating and gave a good background of Fiji's history and was included free. Taxis were available for a very reasonable price to take us into town or to other resorts or tourist attractions. I didn't want to go home and will definitely come back to Geckos again. I will be recommending Geckos to all my friends.
Vinaka to Helen and Darren and all of your lovely staff.
