Not that great actually… had the travel rooms upstairs,,, dark and dreary,share shower and bathroom but the cottage type looked nice.. just not inviting and management not very friendly. Eating area,,, not great and food high priced and cannot bring any food or drink on to their property… But in all fairness several people said they liked it there so...

We stayed here for 4 nights and the place is amazing! Right at the volcano beach, very spacious and clean huts with porches, basic but clean rooms and a good restaurant. Massages were very good and relaxing. Scooters for rent and I would recommend it to explore the island. The staff can give you good recommendations and was very friendly...

CAG is a great place - fantastic rooms, excellent service, good food, knowledgeable instuctors...I could go on. Traveling alone, I felt welcomed from the moment I arrived, with warm smiles and a personalized welcome note in my room. Arno is an experienced dive master, and Kaisa takes care of the rest! You're right on the beach, so you can dive,...

One of the reasons we stayed here was the positive reviews. We stayed in a beachfront bungalow (B1) for 5 days. Pros: Wonderful location with spectacular views. Easy going attitude of the staff. Cons: The food quality ranged from average at best to bad. The Mexican breakfast ( no idea why it is called that...) is omelette with 2 pieces...

Camiguin and the Action Geckos were the highlight of our trip to the Philippines. If you are looking for some relaxing days in a cosy athmosphere - this is the place to be. We planned to stay there for one week and liked it so much that we extended our stay for some more days. We had the seafront bungalow,...

If you are traveling solo this is probably the place to go if you want to meet people to adventure with. However, it is a little overpriced for the area. Food is decent but not great as a lot of other reviewers rave about it. If you want to find things to do, venture off the property and do not...

I stayed here for six nights and thought it was great. I was in one of the cottages which was spacious and clean- the rooms are simple but pleasant and have what you need. Arno, Kaisa and the rest of the team were very helpful with recommendations, advice and arranging trips and airport transfers, and really made everything seem easy....

I like their laidback setup with the hammocks on the beach front. I'd like to especially mention their food! They have vegan options and healthy green smoothies. I love their take on monggo soup and also their banana pancakes. Their portions are huge! Don't forget to try their bread too because it's good.

My sister and I lodged at the Action Geckos resort for a few days. We spent the first night in a travelers' room, with shared bathroom, and the the two other nights in a cottage since the cottages were fully booked at the time of the reservation. The resort is small and very cozy. At the time of the reservation,...

If you're a diver this is the place to be. Their Boat Crew and Dive Masters are super nice! The bungalows are well maintained and clean and the Staff is very attentive. Their restaurant has quite a wide variety and, even though I stayed quite a long time, I did not get tired of their good food. Always new specials...

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
