We chose Action Gekkos based on photos and the many positive trip advisor reviews. Wow – we were not disappointed. Wing along with his staff looked after us and made us really welcome. Wing organised drivers for us to tailor our island exploring exactly to our needs. Not sure about the name Action Gekkos as this is a place you...

I spend three weeks in Philippines and Camiguin was the last stop of my trip. Wow, an amazing island to discover. The people at the resort were really nice, they helped me to organize a trekking to one of the volcanos, I did scuba diving with them and the restaurant was amazing, really delicious meals, pasta, vegetarians menus,...the service was...

I keep coming back to Action Geckos for several reasons. The most important is that the great staff make you feel at home immediately. Once you're coming back, you are already part of the family. This is completed by the combination of space for relaxation, sports and outdoors in a beautiful environment, accompanied by great food and simple but lovely...

We spent 6 days at the Action Geckos and absolutely loved it! The resort feels "away from it all" but is perfectly organized. The bungalows are spacious, well thought out and clean. You can rest or have an action packed vacation. You can take ready made tours or organize them yourself. Everything is possible. When we were there, Wing was...

I can't even describe how awesome Action Geckos is. My boyfriend and I arrived late at night, hoping to get a traveler room for at least one night. We ended up staying for a week. The property is like a beautiful Balienese resort, except it isn't pretentious and very little people. You essentially have the giant black sand beach all...

8 months after my last visit. I am back to Camiguin and staying at Action Geckos again. I am a traveller who isn't quite keen to visit the same place more than once (with the exception of Malacca). So it took myself by surprise too when I decided to go back. It was more for the friendships I made there...

This little guesthouse on the beach fully deserves all the good raccomandations received by Lonely Planet and other guests! Nice bungalows (and the cheap 'travel room' is perfect for people who travels alone: with a fantastic terrace to relax and read) good food, perfect wi-fi connection, well organized dive center, kind and helpfull staff. I was there during a very...

Myself and my friend just stayed here for a week and it was by far the best place we stayed during our 4 weeks in the Phillipines. The huts are fairly simple (ours had a fan, no air con which was fine actually) but very spacious with two three quarter beds, good quality furnishings and a huge verandah. The weather...

Accommodations I booked via Agoda, since the rates I got here were cheaper than what I saw on Action Geckos’ website. I specifically chose their Beach Bungalow because of its beachfront location. It’s expensive for a solo traveler, but it was worth it. I especially appreciated their warm welcome. I was charmed when I opened the door and saw the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Camiguin is one of those best-kept secrets that attracts divers and those "in the know". Diving is not 'my thing' but in this jewel of an island - still relatively unspoilt in comparison to Panglao Island - Camiguin Action Geckos is definitely the best. Why? Simply because of the foreign (European) hands-on management that look after your every need. The personal touches from the attentive staff are worth the money alone. Trips up the volcano etc are easily arranged, the rooms are clean and the beach bungalows/cottages excellent. Food is international and the beach BBQ a great way of meeting the other guests. Go - but don't tell too many friends."Every island on the Philippines should have a place like this." - LonelyPlanet Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: No swimming pool, but with Ardent Hot Springs only 3 km away, who needs one? Avoid Ardent Hot Springs at weekends unless you want to share one of the pools with 30 others. ... more   less
