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...

"Wow" is all I have to say. This place is a remarkable experience. It's simplicity is what makes it so special and warm. The staff are super super helpful, they lent us their laptop for a full day as my friend had urgent issues to sort out on the island. The bungalows are very clean and the everything on the...

Lovely place with bungalows, a nice restaurant and a garden with hammocks right next to a beautiful black beach. On top of the restaurant is a nice lounge area with a hammock and rocking chair. Also possible to get a massage and do yoga. The staff were very friendly and Kaisa and Arno were super nice and helpful. I didn't...

If you are annoyed by children screaming and playing, this is the best place for you. They have restaurant that serves excellent food from breakfast to dinner. They have rooms facing directly at the beach which, i would say perf! If they maybe consider having a gardener to sweep the gardens and improve the landscaping, it will be far better...

Looking for a romantic and rustic place in Camiguin was a no brainer for us. Camiguin Action Gecko sounds weird but the beach front hut was perfect. They arranged our hut with flowers and decorations that commemorated our honeymoon, a year in delay. There were hammocks, boats and the sun. No pool, which was ok for us. The restaurant had...

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
