“Wish I had of stayed at Gecko's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

I was in Fiji for a wedding in June 2014. I stayed at Shangri La but I wish I had of stayed at Geckos instead. I ate daily at Gecko's resort the food was beautiful and very well priced, the staff were absolutely lovely and remembered everybody's name. Several family members stayed at Geckos resort and when I saw the rooms there they are no different to the rooms at Shangri La. I was amazed to see how big the fridges were in the rooms at Gecko's! I would recomend Geckos resort to anyone travelling to Fiji for amazing service and value for money. Thankyou to all the staff for making our family dinners a wonderful experience!

We stay at Geckos every time we go to Fiji, usually every year and wouldn't stay anywhere else when on the Coral Coast. We stayed recently in May on very short notice and it was great to see all the lovely staff again who make it feel like home and Helen and Darren the managers. Our little boy always hates to leave there and thinks all the staff are family. The food is great and cheap and the cultural show and firedancing is excellent no matter how many times you see it..what a talented energetic young dance troupe! Amazed at how many guests from across the road came to eat each night at our restaurant...guess that says something about the quality of the food and service ! I love it there and wished we could have stayed longer this time.

My boyfriend & I just returned from Fiji & our stay at Gecko's. It was amazing great rooms excellent air con very clean & staff were amazing nothing too much trouble, & all called us by name every time they saw us. The food was beautiful & cheap the restaurant always full from other resorts. We were in Fiji for a wedding the other guests stayed at the shangrila across the road 900 rooms & slow service they booked into rooms with no towels & some had to wait days for fresh towels. Do yourself a favour & stay at Gecko's you won't regret it half the price & a better experience we will go back & stay again.

We recently stayed at Geckos after reading heaps of reviews of different hotels/resorts in the coral coast area of Fiji. Geckos had consistently good reviews and it didn't disappoint. The staff were extremely friendly and went out of their way to make our time most enjoyable. It really felt like coming home to family after a day out. The rooms are a little dated but they were very clean and one of the most comfortable beds I have slept on that wasn't my own. The grounds were beautiful and very well maintained and the cultural centre in the grounds were lovely and very informative on Fijian culture.
I was surprised to see a lot of people coming over for dinner most nights from the 5 star resort over the road and for the Polynesian dance and fire show (I recommend you book for dinner especially on these nights), as the food was consistently of good quality and ample quantities.
I would especially like to thank all the staff, Katalina, Anna, Imma, Elizabeth, Aditea, Maraia, Elenoa, Samu and Junior the barman, and also to Helen and Darren for making our first visit to Fiji so enjoyable, with your kindness and huge smiles. You will definintely see us again at Gecko's.

This was my second time staying at Gecko's but the first time with my 7 year old son. Once again the hospitality was first class and you are treated more like family than a guest which is certainly more up my ally. My son never ran out of things to do. It is funny that he only realised he had an iPad after day 5 as he never needed / wanted to use due to being kept busy! Meals were great as usual and the dance shows a must. It continues to amaze me how the restaurant is always packed by guests from the nearby '5 Star' resort who all comment about the better meals available here. Not my first stay, certainly not my last!

We stayed at Gecko's resort for 8 days and we had a wonderful time. The staff were amazing, friendly and helpful and the accomodation was quiet, relaxing and very comfortable.
Elizabeth, Sam, Junior and Katalina were professional, helpful and welcoming and made us feel like we were visiting friends.
Gecko's is a quiet, small resort on beautiful gardens with a cultural centre to visit looking at traditional ceremonial items, weapons and a history of The Fijian people. Across the road is the beach and it is located 20 minutes from the Eco Park, Outrigger on the Lagoon and the sunset strip where some beautiful restaurants are located.
Gecko's is also only 10 minutes from Sigatoka, a town centre where there are plenty of shops housing Fijian souvenirs.
The coral coast follows the coral filled waters all around and is a beautifully scenic drive with the ability to relax you just by looking.
Finally, Gecko's dining was excellent and well priced and they have traditional Fijian dancing including Fire dancing every Friday and Sunday night while you dine. Even the guests staying at Shangri-la's resort across the road were coming over to our resort to dine which we think speaks plenty!
All in all we both enjoyed our stay and honestly believe it would have not been the same without the great service and friendliness we received at Gecko's. It was a trip we will never forget and have plans to go again for our honeymoon.
Thank you to everyone for making our trip memorable.

After leaving our originally booked hotel we ended up staying here because the staff were so lovely to us and took us under their wing. The staff are all so friendly, go above and beyond ti help you and are good fun. The food is great and the polynesian dancing evenings are great entertainment. There are free dvds to rent which is great if it rans during the day. Room was clean and comfortable. They offer a great laundry service too which is very handy when you are travelling the world. Above all was how hospitable everyone was and cannot give them enough praise for this. This may be a small resort but you are treated as part of the family not just another guest. Cannot recommend it enough, you can't go wrong.
