        Good location and very polite staff”

        Isla Gecko is newly renovated, and you get the value for your money. Located at station 2, the beach is just a few minutes away. It is near the bamboo market where you can buy souvenirs, beach wear and snacks. The grocery, wet market and fastfood chains are also jus ta few blocks away when you walk towards the street. The staff are polite, and very accommodating. They even let us use their printer to print out our boarding passes. Breakfast is a bit pricey at 200pesos, but it was convenient given that you have to walk a blocks far to get to DMall and other restaurants. Though rooms dont have balconies, they have an open area on the 4th floor where guests can hang their wet clothes. Water dispensers are provided in the hallways so all you need is your tumbler or mug. The filter on our AC was quite dirty so it took a while for our room to get cold. Wifi signal was very bad, so I had to use my mobile data. Overall, I would recommend this hotel for it's location and value for money.

        Excellent accommodation with homey and chill ambiance!”

        i really love our stay in this place! Location - very near to bamboo market, d'mall, around 5 mins. walk to the beach, has nearby sari sari stores Room - spacious, very clean, and they clean it as per request. Beddings - comfortable, clean and they change the sheets after 2 days, their 1 single and 1 double bed fit our family of 5 pax. Aircon - worked so fine, also they have a ceiling fan that adds up to the coldness of the aircon CR - clean and well maintained, however, we have a hard time in using the bidet coz it quite stiff. Towel, pillows, and linens - smells fresh, white, still in good shape. Staff - they greeted their guest with a smile, the receptionist is well trained and well mannered, housekeepers also do their job very well. The hotel - we are in the room 205, i think the building is up to 5th floor, they have a place to hang your wet clothers, which is a plus for me, there's a sala in outside your room, books, very good connection of internet, a mini bar and resto for breakfast (with a fee). Overall, i'm so satisfied in our stay in Isla Gecko and definitely will book again this hotel if we go back in Boracay. Thank you for welcoming us in your hote. Til next time.

        No regrets”

        At first, Isla Gecko Resort is a bit hard to find but once you've been there you'll realize that the place is so accessible. The place is near D'Mall. Look for the Palawan Express store. That's you're landmark. There's a small alley there and the first resort you'll see is Fat Jimmy's; you just go straight and you'll find Isla Gecko. The resort is very close to the Bamboo Market (it's the Divisoria of souvenir items in Boracay) and about 5 min walk to the beach. The staff were very friendly and they even allowed us to check-in earlier. Basic amenities were available: wifi, aircon, hot & cold shower, toiletries and towels. Drinking water is available free 24/7. The rooms are very clean too. Would love to stay here again.

        Good for the wallet ”

        The hotel is definitely for budget seekers. The hotel was clean and the staff was very nice and caters to our requests quickly. The problem is that it is a bit of a walk to the beach. The road getting in is narrow and isn't cemented so kids have a hard time walking.

        I chose Isla Gecko after reading the reviews posted on Agoda and I was not disappointed”

        The bedroom and bathroom were clean. There was closet space and towels were provided. I noticed the owner was very hands-on. A guard was posted to watch the entrance at night. The aircon broke down but a staff repaired it the next day in less than half an hour. The hostel is just a 5 minute walk from the main road and a stone's throw from D'Mall. Great value for money! And thank you, Miss May from front desk, for helping us with information and directions to the places that we wanted to visit. You're the best!

        Pros: - Nice location- near d mall and 3min walk to the beach - Staff are friendly - Change of towels and room cleaning everyday - Hot and Cold water dispenser available at tye common area Cons: - WIFI was not working during my stay. I needed it for work and placed it on the booking notes months ahead. It would have been good if I was advised before hand that wifi was barely working so I could have made plans. - Even if the room was clean, there were still big mosquitoes. - I suggest you eat somewhere else when staying here. We ate once and omelette and fried egg were too salty. - Room was beside another hostel who always has their lights open. The room was bright all night even with lights off.

        Clean friendly place but bring earplugs”

        Staff is super friendly (May, Ellie, the night security guard) and accommodating. The cleaning staff keeps the place spotless. On the negative side, the breakfast area is in the center of all the rooms. It gets noisy from 8am. Bring earplugs or get up early. Also, there's an extra charge of 200pesos (5$) to borrow an iron. That's a little excessive.

        first off, they were very quick to reply about my inquiries. When we arrived, we were warmly welcomed by Ms. Ely. I love how accomodating and approachable the staff were. Not only that, the room we booked was big enough for 6persons and my family all had a positive feedback which made me so glad bec they're very hard to please. Lastly, i like how it's just 2-3mins away from the beach and you could buy souvenirs along the way. It was a great vacation indeed.

        ❤❤❤ ”

        The place is kinda hidden from the main road so you have to ask a local on where's the way to Isla Gecko. The way to it is somewhat rugged and unfinished but it's just like a 3minute walk so I didn't mind. The place looks modest and surrounded by other small boutique hotel, upon entering we were greeted by kind and friendly staff they were very helpful on giving us instructions about transportations and stuff. What I love the most about this humble hotel is its location near the beachfront, Dmall and mainroad so anything is accessible plus the rates are cheap perfect for budget conscious travellers.

        Best budget hotel in station 2!!”

        1. Value for money - considering prices in Bora, this hotel is really amazing! 2. Location - It sits between the road (for budget buys, land tours) and the beach front (just a few walk to station 1 to for decent swim), it is along D'Mall (for budget buys again, ATM, and restaurants) , and a few walk again to station 2 for a round of drinks, perfect location right? all you need is very near, but you can also enjoy a relaxing good night sleep as this hotel has "quiet time 10pm - 8am" 3. Cleanliness - 2 thumbs up! Flawless and neat!! 4. Staff - Staffs are very attentive, joyful, and polite specially the 2 elderly. You can really feel their warm welcome. 5. Facilities - All facilities work properly, looks tidy and feels safe

        Great Experience!”

        I traveled with 5 friends last Feb14-17. We came in late due to flight delays but we were accommodated happily. Place is superb. Our room is so spacious I think it's perfect for a big family of 6 as well. We came in to a clean room with enough storages and free bathroom knick knacks. Isla Gecko is located near all happenings in Boracay but rest assured if you want a good night sleep, after a long tiring day due to fun water activities, you'll get it here. It's also near the bamboo market where you can buy souvenirs. Staff are very accommodating and really helpful. They taught us how to save in traveling back to Caticlan Airport, and it was totally great experience for us all! Thank you! Isla Gecko offers food as well. Our stay doesn't have free food but we tried their breakfast menu. It's great! big serving and taste like home cooked food. :) We all thought its a good place that fits right in our budget. We'll definitely come back here when we travel back to Boracay. We will also recommend this place to others. We all had a great experience in Boracay and providing us a temporary home made the experience worth remembering! Till next time! :)

The rooms are spotless,the staff is very accomodating and the owners of this hotel,Teddy & jennie were extremely helpful when my son wasn't well and offered every help they could possible offer. Beds are comfortable, filter drinking water is offered for free at every level of the hotel, continental breakfast was very tasty and WIFI connection was the best we had through our one month travel in the philiphines. We are highly recommend to every traveler to stay at this wonderful place. Thank you TEDDY & JENNIE for making our stay a great memory for us and our kids who fell in love with you guys.
