Lovely friendly place to stay.

Posted Sep 11, 2016
Pros: Not too large & had a lovely friendly feeling.
Cons: Bathroom door did not close. Glasses & cups in the room were not replaced with fresh ones if they were used.
All staff were very accomodating & helpful. We were attending a wedding at Shangri La & had a large group come across for dinner on Sunday night. Everyone loved it & said they'd come back & stay at Gecko's. Food was great on the Sunday night & the restaurant was full

The Geckos was a quiet, relaxing place to stay to experience Fiji. The staff were very friendly, helpful & courteous. The meals were always delicious. A thoroughly enjoyable stay.

Excellent basic resort

Posted Sep 8, 2016
Pros: Its is great value for a base to travel/to activities or stay away from the crowd
Cons: As the 2x close by resorts benefit from each others holidayers, a free bus or some other transport would benefit both resorts.
Location: It has a basic pool and relaxing facilities. But 15 minutes walk to the Shangri la resort reveal all the big water activities.
Staff are very friendly and accommodating. As it is only 15 minutes walk to the Shangri la resort which is double the price for a room, multiple beach fronts with numerous facilities, Gecko staff welcome utilizing Shangri la resort during the day. Cheap drinks but average food and facilities. Book the for a Fri or Sun fire show as it actually books out from people at other resorts coming. If you negotiate with a taxi from the airport to the Gecko, you can get it F$60-70 as opposed to the F$90 resort bus. If on a budget, use Gecko to sleep, drink and spend the day/evening somewhere else for activities.

Affordable hotel in practical location

Posted Aug 17, 2016
Pros: Price / performance and location
Cons: The food could be improved to match that offered in the village.
Location: Practical location for exploring, nearby village for local shops and fresh bread, 10 minute bus ride to largest village on Coral Coast for markets and
Gecko's is an affordable hotel with comfortable rooms with your own aircon. Staff are friendly and helpful. It's location on the main road gives easy access to public transport, which is an experience in itself. It is also walking/biking distance from a small village with shops and 2 nice restaurants to give options for dining.

Amazing gem which exceeded all expectations

Posted Jul 20, 2016
Pros: As covered above. Awesome setting with the grounds and cultural village displays. Beautiful palms and cycads. Good pool, restaurant and fire show
Location: Easy getting local bus to Sigatoka. Close to Shangri la and coast. Tavuni Fort a must, a short taxi ride from Sigatoka. Explore on bikes.
Only had 6 days in Fiji and spent the first 3 nights here. Could not fault it. Fantastic gardens, and grounds with the cultural village displays. Was clean and quiet and had a safe for valuables in the room. We brought cereal, bread and lunch material with us so only had to buy dinner but the food was so delicious we were tempted for some lunches as well and the restaurant was popular. Great fire show and dancing one night (free) and other nights had local guys singing. Friendly staff that were always cheerful. Used the free bicycles to explore the area and along past Cuvu Village. Caught a local bus into Sigatoka for $1. Don't miss Tavuni Fort, a short taxi ride from Sigatoka. Walked and biked to Shangri-La for snorkeling and kayaking.

Great price alternative to Shangri-La

Posted May 25, 2016 on Hotels
Stayed at Geckos for a few nights whilst family were staying at Shangri -La. Great price for location near Shangri-La where there is more action (water sports, weddings, golf, etc). Nice and quiet at night, staff were incredibly friendly (they are Fijian after all!!). And the bar stocked cider as well as beer. Will definitely stay again.

Clean hotel and friendly staff
