We took our Advance Open Water Course here and it was an awesome and fantastic experience! We learned a lot from the instructor, Arno, and the other dive masters. We met other divers (mostly non Filipino) who are regulars and they keep coming back to dive here for years! The food is also great here! I saw some reviews saying...

OBS: 7% extra fee on card payment!!!! If you are thinking about taking a diving certificate, do it with Action Geckos on Camiguin! Really great place with very nice staff! The backpacker room 900php is good value if you don't mind "cold" showers. Very chill. Restaurant was not amazing nor cheap, and breakfast was expensive for a backpacker (200php). Took...

I do not dive here like those younger europeans but have had breakfast of pancake and filipino and also adobo for lunch. It is the best one I eat here on camiguin. Beach is near and very good sand and place to swim after eating.

The place is located 10 minutes West from the airport. It is also just 10 mins away from the port to get to White Island. The island is actually visible from the hotel. We stayed in one of the cottages which was very room (could it three more extra beds aside from our bed) and very rustic. The place was...

I will start off by saying that the resort is beautiful and full of potential. The food is delicious and the Filipino staff are lovely. It is in a great location, making it easily accessible to many spots on the island. However, unless you are a diver, the two Dutch managers show little to no interest in you. They have...

Once I got over the shock of spending 900 for a traveller room (prices seem to have gone up loads from the lonely planet quote). I really enjoyed my stay here. Amazing staff, nice rooms and really comfy beds. Clean facilities, hammocks and nice garden area, right on the beach. Was also able to hire a scooter. Restaurant is relaxing...

We found Action Geckos when looking for a dive school. We had already been staying somewhere else and ended up going back a few hours later and booking in. We booked a dive with Arno for the next day, I had done my Open Water on another island in the Philippines and I didn't feel that confident afterwards so my...

We (couple late 20's) stayed for 4 nights at Action Geckos Resort in a travellersroom. Action Geckos Resort is located in a short distance from the airport, (10 minute drive with tricycle, 50pesos) You drive from the mainroad to the beach to a beautyful garden with palmtrees where the mainbuilding with restaurant is located. The managers Arno and Kaisa gave...

This is a sociable and laid back travellers resort with good Finnish management. I stayed in the most basic room which was a single bed, fan and table and shared bathroom , it was simple and basic but for 650 pesos it's pretty good value. The best rooms are cottages right on the beach but they were full. Food is...

Over the course of 3 nights stayed in 2 traveler’s rooms (650 - 900P) and a beach bungalow (2000P). Rooms were comfortable and clean, and the bungalow was very spacious. The fans were not really adequate for cooling things off at night. Wifi only worked by the restaurant, and even then it was very temperamental (typical of Camiguin). Had a...

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
