The two good things about Geckos is the beach front location and the food once the correct meal is delivered to your table it is quite tasty. The hotel would be great place to stay if the rooms were cleaned daily ( and you did not have to ask for them to be cleaned) - if there was hot water to use in the shower - if there was Wifi* to use as advertised - if it was a safe place to stay as there was a deliberately lit fire started at 3 am whilst we were staying and this was the second in as many weeks ( Ramesh and Liz are not liked by their staff and the locals). Geckos would have a better vibe if the owners treated their staff with respect and spoke nicely to them. It would also be a great place if the room air conditioning ( that was paid for ) was not turned off at the switch board during the day. It would be an awesome place to stay if Ramesh left the hotel all together, stopped being so money focused and stopped hiding alcohol in the guests rooms so the police could not find it when the site gets inspected. "Geckos" is also know for other questionable activities. Please look at other options like "Sun and Surf" across the road - that place is awesome.
