        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.

        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.

        If it’s your first time in Boracay and has a tight budget this is the best place to stay. Location is near to everything you need. Its worth the price and ill book this place again the next time i visit.

        ❤❤❤ ”
        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.

        I love this hotel”
        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.

        Even though this hotel is not directly on the beach it is near enough to be very convenient to all things a traveller needs. The staff are very pleasant and we were lucky enough to meet the owner who was a really nice person to chat with.

        Staff were accommodating. It was a bit of a challenge to locate the hotel when we first arrived, it would have been better if they offered to send someone to meet with first time guests. Room receives 5 stars. The water dispenser is a plus. Will definitely consider Isla Gecko as one of the places to stay in when we go back to Boracay. 😉

        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! :)

        An EXCELLENT place to stay at, while holidaying on Boracay island.”
        We travel with two kids and booked this place for 3 nights. The location of this hotel is great, located in a quiet area and just a minute walk to the beach. 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. We will be back. THANK YOU guys.

        For a budget hotel, Isla Gecko was fine. the building is new, the room we had at the 3rd floor was new and very clean... Excellent airconditioning system. What I did not like about the whole experience was the walk from D'mall to the hotel. We neded to pass by gargabe dump that really stink.
