My husband and I spent 9 days and 8 nights at Geckoes lodge for our honeymoon. We had planned on doing all kinds of activities during the day but when we arrived, the lodge was sooo AMAZING (understatement), that we spent the majority of our time there. The house itself was immaculate and romantic. The dipping pool was much larger...

This place was the picture perfect idea of a vacation. It was away from the town which was perfect for privacy. But only a 5 minuet drive to Puerto Viejo! Tom and Zoe where wonderful and the house was simply amazing! We will definitely be back soon!

Tom and Zoe, the owners of Geckoes Lodge are so awesome and helpful. Its like staying at home away from home in paradise. The wildlife is spectacular and the privacy in the forest is priceless. Extremely comfortable unlike a high-rise where it takes 20 minutes to get to your car and go eat, sight see etc. It takes 30 seconds...

Very friendly hosts. The house was very clean and spacious. There were plenty of dishes etc so we could eat meals at the house if we wanted. Usually we just had breakfast at the house then took a short, maybe 10 minute, drive to Puerto Viejo. Plenty of good restaurants there, especially the Bread And Chocolate restaurant. There were a...

Geckoes Lodge is a very private upscale getaway in the Costa Rican rain forest just out of the town of Puerto Viejo. The property consists of two wonderful guest houses and the owner's house, all hidden in the rainforest away from the traffic, yet close enough to be in town in under 10 minutes. The guest houses are bright, cheerful...

We stayed 8 nights at Geckoes Lodge in Casa del Bosque - a little cottage right by the jungle with an open outdoor kitchen and a plunge pool. It was absolutely fantastic. First of all, Puerto Viejo is a great little town with so many delicious restaurants and a very international crowd. It's surrounded by jungle and amazing beaches. Geckoes...

As all of the reviews have stated, Tom and Zoe are great. Very tranquilo and yet still eager to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Grounds are very private and houses are new, clean, cool and comfortable. All the nicest touches and after seeing some other places around, the price is right...Lets remember people, your not in Nicaragua anymore!...
