I have travelled all across the world stayed in many different places and without a doubt this is the warmest friendliest helpful and kindest resort! Perfect location 2 mins walk to the beach restaurants and nightlife. Rooms extremely comfortable and clean. Staff always smiling inquiring about your day making sure all is going great on your trip just in general up for a chat :) we extended our stay here because we just loved it. 10 out of 10 all around. Couldn't recommend enough!!

The alley way to get to the hotel is a bit scary to walk at night by yourself. The wifi only worked in the lobby. They never cleaned my room while I was staying there. The staff were great, including the owners and when I complained of noise they moved me to another room. Value for money not that great but that's boracay, it's very expensive and isla was the best I could get at last minute during Chinese New Year. No free breakfast :(

Amazing hospitality and friendliness. I stayed here for 5 nights over new year, the owner and his family were there also and they were very nice people, always made a point of talking to you and asking how everything was and if they could do anything for you. All the staff worked very hard to cater for anything you asked for and nothing was to much trouble. Would 100% recommend this well run hotel. Food and drink is cheap and it's an amazing location as it's close to absolutely everything.

This hostel is amazing! The rooms are extremely clean and the daily cleaning service (making beds, cleaning the bathroom) was very much appreciated since it's hard to keep a room clean with all the sand and beach build up! Your staff always had big, bright smiles on their faces and even let us use the hostel's phone for basically an entire afternoon while we changed our flights. Everyone who worked there was so friendly. I would 100% recommend this hostel to anyone lucky enough to visit!!!

We (three girls in our early twenties) just got back from spending our Christmas at the Isla Gecko. We could not have been made to feel more welcome. The room was comfortable and clean but it was the friendliness of the staff and owners that really made our stay enjoyable. We came down to the foyer on Christmas Eve to see that a free spread of food had been laid out for all of us, and on Christmas Day were taken out Paddle Boarding by the owners. It was a great place to spend Christmas!
