My wife, two children and I stay at Geckoes Lodge and loved our experience. The house is beautiful, the pool was refreshing and the jungle surrounding us reminded us everyday how lucky we were. My wife and children travelled in Costa Rica for a month and joined them the last week at Geckoes. I looked at around 200 places before finally choosing Tom and Zoe's wonderful place. Initially, I was worried it was "too romantic" for our family. It was romantic but worked well for our entire family.
We rented a golf cart (Tom and Zoe organized it for us) and travelled all around the coast and enjoyed the beaches and fantastic food in the area. We shopped a little in Puerto Viejo (2 KM away) and travelled down to the Jaguar Rescue Center. (1 KM).
The place was private, had a great kitchen and a grill next to the pool. We loved using the hammocks and reading while listening to the monkey's in the morning (sometimes a little too early for me :). If you are thinking about this area of Costa Rica, this is your place. I looked high and low before I booked and while I was there. Our family loved the place and would visit again in a heartbeat.
