    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.

    Clean, comfortable, and quiet given the central location. This is a well-managed property where everything (wifi, A/C, etc) works as advertised. Recommended.

    10 days, no complaints- a great find!

    We've been to Alona 5+ times and our most recent stay was the first time we stayed at Alona Gecko but wish we'd discovered before! The location, size, amenities, and staff are a steal! Hot water shower, fridge, kettle, lanai, great staff, and great location. Especially for this very quickly changing part of the Philippines, Alona Gecko still provides great value and service among bigger, over-priced resorts which are taking over. No complaints, just hope it's still here on our next visit!!

  • 8.0.Very good

    パングラオ島全般に言える事ですが、トイレにペーパーが流せないので、備え付けのゴミ箱に入れますが、その日毎の白いビニル袋を持って行って、その中に入れて捨てる方が良いと思います。ウォシュレットの代わりに、小さなシャワーヘッドの洗浄器具が付属してますので、慣れが必要ですがお尻は洗えます。 目の前の庭は、毎日早朝にスタッフが落ち葉や枯草を掃除してますので、とても綺麗です。 難を挙げると、洗濯が禁止で、外の小さな干すところには、バスタオルや水着のみと決められています。 また、室内履きが無いので、サンダルを買うなど必要です。サンダルは近くで170ペソくらいで売っています。 飲料水は、ホテルで買う方が安いです。たくさんあった方が良いと思います。タオルは言えば替えてくれます。 言葉は英語になりますので、翻訳アプリで対応しました。 チェックインの時、一部屋あたり、1000ペソのデポジットを徴収されます。チェックアウトの時、戻ってきます。

    can’t wash your clothes !

    the place is well situated, the staff is friendly and the room is big enough. But then I readed the rules and one is that you can’t wash your clothes. You only was swim suit, that’s it. I think it’s an abusive rule ! How I’m supposed to wash my clothes then ? I asked 2 différents staff and none could explain me why. The last day when I check out I was talking about that again and she told me that I could use the sink outside... it’s great to know that when I check out... I asked again why I can’t just wash my clothes in the room I paid ? She said it’s because of the soap going to some pipeline..... soooo it’s mean that I shouldn’t use Shampoo and soap when I shower ? Totally non sense ! It’s like I’m forced to use a laundry company... but maybe I don’t want to give my clothes to any company? Is the owner thought about it ? I traveled 34 countries so far and went to cheap and luxurious hotel, it’s the first time I heard about this abusive rule ! Hô should let people know that rule!!
