one of the best deal I could find in Alona. cheap, quite, clean and comfortable but walking distance from everywhere and with friendly and helpful staff and management. all amenities works properly, everything is well maintained, at least inside the structure.
Actually this happened april 9-10, 2021. It was a good stay. People or employees even the owner is nice to us. They attend to our every need. The place is cozy and they understand what their customers need.
Alona Gecko is very clean, simple accommodation in a fantastic location. Great restaurants nearby and a short walk to the beach. There are no fancy extras - just a good place to stay with friendly staff, and a nice clean bathroom to shower after a day at the beach. Well worth the price.
0 customer service. some kind of course could be good for personal. night guards and cleaning ladies are nice, but the rest need some training. words like: "welcome, thank you or good morning" are rare.. the rooms er ok
Very clean, CLOSE to everthing! We loved this place because it was cheap and had everthing we needed. Fan and A/C, fridge, comfy bed and patio with another fan and lights to see at night. Even a tea kettle and coffee cups. 5 min walk to the beach and alll the great restaurants like bamboo and Shaka restaurant. One thing that could be beter is the customer service, little to no information on anything about Bohol and they will tell you to just go to the info center instead. And I didn’t feel super welcomed when I arrived.Not sure his name but the one philipino man working there was very nice. Also they have German rules etc which I thought was weird because it’s a philipino country? I know it’s owned by a German but I think everthing should just be in English. (Just a tip) I would recommend staying here and I would def come again!!…
I stayed there for 5 nights. Safe and extremely clean lodge with mosquito net door at every room. Staff cleans the room daily. The photos you see is practically what you get. However, their mattress is too soft for me, but not a very big deal. Note: They do not allow hanging clothes other than swimming wear at the patio.
Seems to me that photos on the booking sites are not heavily photoshoped, what you see is basically what you will get. The place is away but not distant from the noisy beach so is quite at night. Though does not offer quite a lot of rooms and the room is not necessarily big, but cozy, clean and well maintained. Every room comes with a small relaxing open yard with bamboom chairs, teapoy and fan. Staff is friendly and helpful. The place does not offer breakfast, but there's a nice cafe for that just at the corner 50 meters away. Great value for budget stay. Only a few minor points I would say could be improved: 1) Shower can be stronger; 2) It's not convenient for reading books on the table, as the room does not have desk lamp and the lights on the roof is not bright enough to cover the desk area; 3) The room I stay came with a queen bed but the mattress was made up of two half-sized small ones, this would cause some discomfort if you like to sleep in the middle of a bed, like me :(…
Alona Gecko Inn was the best accommodation of my trip to the Philippines. I stayed for 8 nights. The room as well as the whole resort is very clean and silent, seems to be quite new. I could sleep very well in the bed. Air con, fan, fridge, hot shower, lights, electric water jug, toilet flush, electricity and locker are all functioning well, which is quite rare to find for this price. The room is spacious and you even have a lovely private outside sitting area. Wifi was the best I have experienced in the Philippines. Also the owner and staff are very friendly and always keen to help. Location is very practical - shops, travel agencies, restaurants and bars nearby, but this place remains silent. It is just a 3-5 minutes walk to the beach. I definitely will stay here again.
We had a really comfortable and safe stay in Alona Gecko Inn. The rooms are exactly as shown on photos - very clean and spacious. Air conditioning and water heater worked well. Water pressure is very good (makes for a nice shower). WiFi is fast. Location is also very good - easy walk to Alona Beach and all the restaurants. Even if entry is along main road, no noise that bothers at night and early morning. We will definitely stay here again. The only downside is the reception staff (woman). She was not pleasant and warm. She could learn some customer service from the staff in Shaka (vegetarian café) and Gavroche (French bakery nearby) who were so friendly and warm.
We are satisfied. Confortable and clean accomodation. It's well located, not far from Alona beach. Good air con and fast wi fi too. The area is very quiet so you can rest with no problems and the space outside is relaxing. Lovely staff always ready to suggest and help you for all you need. Really reasonably price for what you get.
