NOT a 4.5 star resort

Posted Jun 22, 2015
Pros: We had 2 interconnecting studios for 3 adults, at the end of the complex.
Cons: To maintain privacy, netting curtains are needed on sliding doors so the heavy curtains can be opened for light and fresh air.
Location: In a typical Fijian environment, close to villages. Adjacent to Shangri La Resort, a shared relationship seems to exist between the 2.
We stayed at Gecko's as a cheaper accommodation option for a wedding at Intercontinental. We had a rental car and it took only 20 minutes to commute between the two locations. Because of spending most of each day and every night at Intercontinental we did not get the full experience of staying and dining at Gecko's, but we had breakfasts there which were on an a la carte basis with generous servings and not overpriced. The grounds are extensive and well kept, and include bures set up with displays which are part of the cultural facilities and education programme offered at Gecko's. The village homes at the back of the complex (where the rooms are) had uncontrolled dogs which barked every night, and intermittently all night. The walls are thin and guests in the neighbouring unit watched TV at full volume, and it took 2 requests and 1.5 hours before staff acted and approached them to turn the volume down. There are no windows in the units, just glass sliding doors at the front which all face into a central recreation area. These doors have a curtain but privacy is lost once they are open.

Very cute resort

Posted May 3, 2015
Pros: Clean, very friendly staff
Cons: TV reception, no shop on site (it may have been undergoing rennovations) so I had to walk over to Shangri-La or into the local town when sick in need
Location: 10 minute taxi to Sigatoka town or 5 min to the sigatoka sand dunes and beaches which are absolutely beautiful. Beach access a leaisurely 1km walk
I stayed for 7 nights in late April 2015; Gecko's wasn't terribly busy and the staff are very friendly and welcoming. The rooms are exceptionally clean and very bright. The grounds are lovely and well-kept. The tv did not get clear reception on the 2 local channels that it picked up and so was completely unusable, save the limited amount of DVDs for hire in reception and this is the only real gripe that I had as i was sick for a few days and stuck inside my room with little to do. I had an uncomfortable airport transfer to the hotel with a company I arranged on my own and so it was great that the resort had a regular taxi driver on call who would assist me at very, very reasonable rates, driving me into Sigatoka and WAITING over an hour for me, and returning me to Gecko's for $20FJD.

Great Resort and close to the beach

Posted May 1, 2015
Pros: the staff and location
We had a great time at Gecko's, the staff were wonderful and were always helpful anytime of the day. We made good friends with them all and felt like family by the end of the trip. The rooms were clean, tidy and spacious. The food was excellent and big serves too which was a bonus as it was no fuss food. The resort was close to the beach area at the Shangri La resort which we had free access to as a visitors so that was a nice surprise for us. We would definitely go back again soon to stay.

Nice hotel close to the beach

Posted Feb 4, 2015
Excellent resort! Staff were extremely friendly and very helpful Rooms were cleaned everyday and air-conditioned Yiu have free access to the Shangri-la resort across the road which has a private pool and beach which are fantastic! Only downside is that it is a little far from all the major towns but it is very easy to catch a cab or bus to where you need to go

Perfect Gecko's

Posted Jan 28, 2015 on Hotels
I cannot praise Gecko's enough. Everything about the resort is excellent. The management and staff made our visit very special and I would love to stay with them again. I would choose Gecko's everytime over the larger 5 star resorts which seem impersonal and overwhelming by comparison. Who wouldn't want to stay where you are made to feel so welcome you don't want to leave. Thankyou Gecko's for the holiday of a lifetime.

Gecko's Family Holiday

Posted Jan 26, 2015
We had an excellent family holiday at Gecko's. The rooms were adjoining, which was great. The staff were so polite, friendly, helpful and smiling, and the cultural dance experience on Sundays and Fridays is a must to see for everyone. Prices at the restaurant are comparable with everywhere else, and the meals were excellent. We loved our Fiji holiday at Gecko's and highly recommend this resort.
