We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Geckos Rest. It's well situated. We could walk to restaurants and to the town and the beach. The breakfast is excellent. There was a very good choice of food and it was nicely cooked. The owners were very helpful about trips we made and local restaurants.

Excellent stay. Guesthouse was immaculate. Very comfortable, spacious room. Lovely, friendly greeting and service throughout from John and Amy. Breakfast was delicious. Good location, close to town and beaches. Take John's advice on places to eat. Highly recommended, as long as they don't sack the chef!
