    Would definitely stay again”

    We came before the check in time (but after the check out time) and asked for the possibility of early check in and was given a firm and rude no by one of the young female staff at reception. She then proceeded to just look on her phone whilst I tried to get information about Bohol. I think management needs to give her a lesson in manners, or give her the boot. Other than that, the place was nice and comfortable, it was clean and sheltered from the noise of the main street. The German owner was very nice and I wish he was there initially to help us check in. Nevermind!

    The place is very convenient to shops and various establishments in Alona. They do daily room cleaning. It's also quiet so that you can relax after your tiring tours. Only downside I can say is they dont have TV in the room but they got fast internet. Water in the bathroom is a bit salty also. Overall assessment is very good. Value for money.

    If you travel alone for a dive, the best accommodation you would like to recommend.”

    Room condition is good and the shower water pressure was strong and it was easy to wash. The staff was kind and tried to help me. If you walk from Main Three Street for about two minutes, you will be able to get to hotel right away. However, it is regrettable that amenity is not provided. If you are sensitive to bed because the bed is latex, you need to consider it again. Overall, it was a satisfying stay, and I will stay here next time.

    Deposit for room ”

    Be ready to give away 1000peso on deposit. No information about deposit anywhere on agoda. They have stupid rules eg. no guests after 8 PM. Smell from the bathroom was awful, water from shower was salty. Sometimes no power and they turn on power aggregate which was very loud sometimes at night. While aggregate was on there was no air con and fun. The owner said sarcastically 'you have wifi'. Good thinks: air con and fun in the room, fridge froze water inside. Beside owner Staff was very friendly and helpful.

    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...

    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! 😊

    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.

A thoroughly good choice and would stay again. Be prepared to leave a 1000 php deposit against breakages but returnable on departure.

    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!

The layout of the properity is simple but very clean having brand new airconditioner and refrigerator for usage. You can also enjoy yourself in front of your room, where is a nice lobby with mini garden view, surfing the high-speed internet.

    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.
