Gekoes has everything worked out very well except for it's location. Yes Tom/Zoe are excellent hosts, the environment they have designed, the bungalows and natural beauty are all excellent. Not cheap at all, but of a very high standard. I can say with some confidence it is probably the best place to stay in terms of quality of accommodation. And...

Thank you Riddhi for taking the time to write a review. We are very pleased you appreciated the house and grounds but concerned we disappointed you on some points. We would like to take this opportunity to clarify a few things. When you were here the road was in indeed in the worst state we have seen for many years....

We stayed in Geckoes Lodge for 5 nights which wasnt long enough. We loved it!! We stayed in their 2 person apartment. We felt totally secluded in our little nest. Our favourite part was the plunge pool and all of the bedroom doors that opened out into the jungle so that we could watch the birds from bed in the...

We chose Geckoes because of the beautiful pictures and I found out how close it is to The Jaguar Rescue Center, and my life goal was to hold a monkey. Geckoes surpassed all my expectations. Starting from booking Tom and Zoe were so helpful in answering all my random questions and even set us up with a driver from San...

We traveled to Costa Rica for our daughter's Make A Wish Trip at the end of May. After enduring a year of therapy for a brain tumor (yes kids get cancer!), her wish was to see and hold a sloth. What better place to fulfill a wish like that than staying at Geckoes Lodge. Zoe and Tom (owner's) went out...

We've stayed at Geckoes 3 times now - and would love to get back there again. Can't recommend it highly enough. There are 2 houses - the larger 2-bedroom 'Casa Bromelia' is perfect for families and is elevated above the canopy for excellent bird, butterfly and sloth watching. Watching the garden/jungle come alive in the morning with a pot of...

My husband and I stayed here in the Casa del Bosque for 4 nights in April 2014 for our honeymoon. The house is as gorgeous as the pictures suggest and it's very private. We made good use of the kitchen for breakfast and lunch, then ate out in the evening. Malbec for steak was especially good. Geckoes Lodge is a...

Staying at Geckoes Lodge is a truly magical experience. Nestled in the lush jungle you live in an open air, serene lifestyle with beautiful amenities. The layout of our "casa" allowed us to sit each morning watching the jungle come to life around us. Vibrantly colored birds would fly right up to us while we sipped our morning coffee. The...

Just completed a 3 week tour of the P.V. Talamanca region, which began with 6 nights at Geckoes. My wife and I were in the single bedroom "Casa del Bosque". It was as comfortable and as beautiful an accommodation as we have ever stayed in. Our first time staying in a Rainforest of this nature, we couldn't have felt more...

The first night we stayed in the Bromelliad Casa, this one has the most comfortable layout. The kitchen is well stocked and it is a pleasure to cook there, although the town is close only a few minutes where there are lots of great places to hang out and eat. Close to cocles beach, the property is a great location...
