Tom and Zoe were beyond helpful, they took us into they're personal home until our guesthouse was ready because our car broke down and we had nowhere else to go. The guesthouse was BEYOND beautiful. The kitchen and living room are open to the jungle and it was the most beautiful experience when it rained! We made the mistake of... More

We stayed at geckoes for 4 nights of our honeymoon and we loved it. Initially it was a big shock /change from the previous resort we had stayed in, as geckoes is immersed right in the jungle off a really intense gravel road (~1km into the rainforest off the main road).. But, we quickly fell in love with the privacy... More

Dear Angela, We are very pleased to hear you had such a good time at Geckoes and are sorry we did not get the chance to meet you and Chance. Yes, we agree that the road isn't very good at the moment but once the new water project is finished they will resurface the whole stretch. Wishing you a long... More

We stayed at Geckoes at the end of July this year as a family of four, kids aged 10yrs and 13yrs, it was perfect. Our hosts Zoe and Tom couldn't be more helpful and provided information on local restaurants, activities and guides. The house was absolutely beautiful. We spent hours lying in the hammocks watching the wildlife from our deck.... More

WOW! Let me start off by saying that Geckoes Lodge was by far our favorite place to stay while in Costa Rica!! My husband and I spent 8 days for our honeymoon in June 2016; we stayed part of the time in Puerto Viejo at a couple of places, and the other part in the La Fortuna area. Of all... More

We stayed at Geckoes for an amazing week and can't wait to return. This place is a garden paradise, a secluded oasis just a 5 minute drive to a vibrant, multi-cultural, laid-back part of the country that you shouldn't miss. We've been to many places in Costa Rica, but Geckoes is, in our opinion, one of the most peaceful and... More

My husband and I spent 6 nights in May in the smaller bungalow for our honeymoon. It was lovely and exactly as described.

We had planned on doing all kinds of activities during the day but when we arrived, the lodge was sooo AMAZING (understatement), that we spent the majority of our time there.

This place was the picture perfect idea of a vacation. It was away from the town which was perfect for privacy. But only a 5 minuet drive to Puerto Viejo! Tom and Zoe where wonderful and the house was simply amazing! We will definitely be back soon!

Tom and Zoe, the owners of Geckoes Lodge are so awesome and helpful. Its like staying at home away from home in paradise. The wildlife is spectacular and the privacy in the forest is priceless. Extremely comfortable unlike a high-rise where it takes 20 minutes to get to your car and go eat, sight see etc. It takes 30 seconds... More
