    Great Location and services”
    This is my first time to give 5 stars for all categories in agoda. It is unexpectedly great. A good deal with super convenience location. Even there is no TV in the room, I can really enjoy myself in the room with music from my phone... The room is clean and the staff is helpful. They shall provide hair dryer for every rooms, as what I think it could improve further.... There are only six rooms in the hotel, it is not a big money to provide it for each room...

    I honestly can't think of any cons. Our room and the grounds were immaculate. The staff was super friendly. Location was back from the main drag and quiet, but within minutes to the beach. Ceiling fan, a/c, warm shower, fridge, comfortable bed. Excellent wifi.

    Pros- near to beach and restaurant, feeling safe and secured. The place is quiet at night so you can sleep well. Has a veranda where you can dry your swimwear, they also have different towel for beach and indoor. Kudos! Cons- no tv in room and bidet in cr Overall happy and satisfied! Special shout out to Ate Carol one of the staff. Very approchable and hardworking! Keep up your sweet smile! We surely go back! 😊

    A very rude German owner”
    We didn’t like the place because of the owner that was very rude and full of stupid rules to obey like if we were children. The mattress was really uncomfortable and we had two unexpected visitors in our room, two cockroaches. The best of the hotel are the Philippines working there, really nice people and that’s the reason why we didn’t leave the place from the first day. If you read that, we also want to inform you about a lovely place to have breakfast owned by a very nice English guy. The name of the bar is Nikita’s and is the best breakfast in town.

    Convenient location, spacious clean rooms, better than typical construction quality, thoughtful practical layout and features (separate storage for suitcases and hanging, covered patio with fan). No tv but that is probably a good thing given the noise it would generate. Professional and very good value.

    We stayed here for three nights. Rooms were basic but spotless and so clean. Hot water, comfortable bed and good WiFi connection. Short walk to the beach and restaurants. A thoroughly good choice and would stay again. Be prepared to leave a 1000 php deposit against breakages but returnable on departure.

    The place is so neat and spotless. Located in an alley just along the main road. Few steps to the Tourist Center and convenience store. Short walk to the beach. It was so near you can do it round trips without breaking a sweat.

    What you see is what you get”
    It could have been better if they have TV and breakfast. The wifi was very fast and I like the simplicity of the room. Though it was a 5-8 mins walk away from Alona beach, I can say that it was all okay because Alona is so crowded and if you wanna have peaceful stay, this is perfect. Overall I recommend the hotel. I had a relaxing vacation.

    There had been several power outage during our stay due to a typhoon but it didn't bother us since their generator can still allow for the fan, Wi-Fi and charger to function. The outdoor/ garden sitting is very nice. Curtain could be better.

    I love how clean our room was. I also love the fact that we had both split type aircon and a ceiling fan. I didn't like the linens as they were too small and wasn't thick enough to keep you warm at night. Good hot&cold shower, towels were not that soft so I suggest you bring your own, all rooms has own seating area/veranda which is really good. No TV, quite area, 10-15 minute walk to Alona beach. SUPER FAST WIFI INTERNET! :)

    It fit all our needs, will definitely be back”
    No stairs since all rooms are on 1 floor. Free water refill anytime of the day. You can request to print your e-ticket. Staff member Kenneth (?) was helpful and polite. The rooms were spacious (we brought diving gear), and the bathroom was clean with hot/cold shower and water pressure was good. No breakfast but the location was near enough restaurants (in facbit was right beside a hotel/inn that served good brekky. Excellent wi-fi! A/C was cool enough. Refrigerator, water heater, cups and saucers provided. I liked the towels too, not new but not scraggly either. Transportation is aplenty since tricycles hang out by the highway. It is situated very near the highway but not along the highway. Gecko Inn is not beachfront but it is just a 5-minute leisurely walk to Alona Beach. I liked it because the walk to the beach allowed us to see the many other restaurants available to us, especially the Bee Farm ice cream and Korean grocery store with yogurt popsicle stick. No pesky videoke at night! I need to remember if there were any negative... Huh. Can't think of any. I almost dont want to give a review hahaha I wanna keep Gecko Inn a secret but *sigh*... oh, right! No bidet. Deposit needed, btw, 1,000 pesos that you get back after check out provided all outstanding bills are settled and you didnt trash the place or break anything.

    THe place was good, location wise and budget friendly”
    Everything went smoothly on our stay here, it's been great. The room was clean and spacious; though, it lacks television hopefully they'll add one soon. The staff were nice and helpful. The owner was hands-on. They also have a motorcycle to be rented by the guests if they wanted to. The place is good, away from the noise in Alona beach. But still is well located just in front of the Hennan Resort Panglao. You can just walk going to Alona Beach. Quiet and peaceful place. Recommended!

    Clean, secure, cozy and quiet! Just a few mins walk from Alona beach. My cousin and I always felt safe walking back to our room from the beach because of the lively atmosphere in the area even at night There's a police station at the end of the road and surveillance cameras around the property. Even though the room was very basic and was missing a full length mirror, the room and the bathroom were clean! The aircon worked great and the water heater in the shower worked fantastic. We enjoyed our stay in gecko inn.
