For those of you who like living the simple native way of life you will absolutely love this place. The best situated cottage with aircon is called "White Island" which is located on the beach facing the sea full on where you can see White Island. We paid P2900 per night exclusive of breakfast. There are no tea or coffee...

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and we loved the place. This is one of the few resorts in camiguin that had a nice beachfront with spectacular view of the sunset. Pros: The staff were really really friendly and accommodating. What i liked about the people is that they never became intrusive in offering packages etc. They...

Cottages were lovely, staff were really friendly and helpful, food in the restaurant was really good. We also did a scuba diving course, which was really great and really well run. Would recommend to friends.

This was my 4th visit to Action Geckos and it was great as always. Michele is the perfect host. The staff is just amazing. The food was fantastic, as well as our day trip to Mantigue Island. I'll definitely come back a 5th time.

This is by far the only place that makes me feel part of the family! <3 I chose this place to stay even though it was slightly out of my budget but coz it came highly recommended through Lonely Planet and Trip Advisor. And the place has a in house dive school. So I thought I would finally have the...

The place itself is great. The location, the building(s), the staff and, simply, what you get for your money is just great. Unfortunatly I have to say that it didn't live up to its name, namely the part that says "Action". When I was there they couldnt arrange any of their island tours because of road construction, and rain. Strangely,...

Very nice place, and nice people! What I would like to feature was the romantic candle lit dinner by the beach we had. Not to mention the beautiful sunset while waiting for the dinner to be prepared. Highly recommended for couples who thinks that romantic dinners by the beach are only in TVs! The resort will make it real and...

Camiguin Action Gecko has everything you need: nice location, excellent food, perfect service. Needless to say, everyone in the place - from Michelle, who runs the resort, to the waiters (especially are Maya) - are warm, always helpful, and vibrant. They make you feel at home. The place is quaint and quirky which adds to the good experience. And of...

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
