We stayed here for 2 nights. The room we stayed in is comfortable, with clean toilet and bath per room. Staff are friendly and accommodating. Not fronting the beach, but it is indeed a decent place to stay in the island.

Pros: - Very clean - Close to Station 2 - Comfortable beds (not in all the rooms though, we tried two different rooms) - Very friendly staff - Free drinking water Cons: - I think it was quite expensive for what it was. The room was quite small and it was pretty dark in the room all day because the...

It's our 2nd stay here in Isla Gecko. I must say that their customer service and homey vibe are the main reasons why we love this place. First time we stayed last December 29, 2015 until January 1, 2016 to celebrate New Year in Boracay. I remembered they even prepared for a complimentary food and snacks that New Year's eve....

The location: The hotel is hard to find. There are no signs leading you directly to the hotel. You can't even use map quest to help guide you. However the locals are friendly, and they will be gladly guide you in the right direction. Leading up to the hotel seems a bit dodgy at first, you have to walk either...

We made the booking thru booking.com and got a good deal. The hotel is in station 2. It is not beach front but it was a 5 minute walk to the beach. It is conveniently located near D' Palengke and D'Mall. Another good thing about the hotel is it has water dispensers stationed in the hallways. Our room was clean...

This place is hidden in one of the alleys of Borrocay. It is very central and you are on the beach within a second! The owners are very friendly and the rooms clean! Dont expect a great view. but do expect a nice clean place for a reasonable price with great smiles of the staff!!!

This hotel is just what you pay for. Very simple and very basic. Staff is lovely and the rooms are just ok. The airco could not cope well with the heat of boracay so the room was most of the time hot. Shower basic but ok. The hotel is a bit difficult to find, I was lucky that the tour...

3 of us stayed here for 3 nights. Room was clean but very small and basic. Had to request for room to be made up each day. Wifi was ok when it worked. Aircon worked well and beds comfortable though.
