Dinner

Review of Gecko's Resort
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 20 Sept 2023via mobile
We visited geckos restaurant for dinner while staying at the Shangri La for something different
The food was great and reasonably priced. The staff were friendly and cheerful and made the overall experience worth going. I would recommend a visit if you are getting tired of resort food.

Stayed for 4 nights catching up with family and friends. We had a great relaxing time. Staff are beautiful and so friendly , Food was great as was the fire show . Rooms are big , bed was comfortable and all you need for a comfortable stay . If you are expecting a flash 5 star resort this is not the place for you , but if you are after somewhere where you are acknowledge by your name and greeted with a warm smile and a hug this is the place for you . Would stay again thank you to all .

Great no frills resort for inexpensive price. Really sweet staff. Wifi is not great. Resort is probably overstating things but it is a very nice easy place to be. I am happy to be here. We spent the day shopping in Situka and the morning at the national park. Yesterday we went to the shangri la and enjoyed their beach and had lunch. For the price I would stay here again but be aware it is not on the beach, walls are thin, beds are hard. For two night it was perfect.

Room tip: It can be loud be aware of your neighbors and be kind in the early mornings.

Location - close to the Shangri-La as we were here for a wedding.
We did come in late - this was because our flight was delayed, they did stay open for us to check us in.
We did have two room books, when I couldn't change the booking online, but figured too late when I should have organised it by contacting the resort directly.
The service of the place was amazing, they were very friendly and quick to sort out any issues.
Food - was decent and fairly well-priced.
The little frogs were super cute at night time they would come out.

Disliked · The beds - were very uncomfortable. Very hard and laying on a rock.
Wifi wasn't connected when you were on the property, you had to get a code for each time and would only last 8 hours.
Shower head there was an issue where it wouldn't hold up. In the other room, the placement of the shower taps was uneven.
Leaving the room locked up - would return to a very strong smell of urine.

Our family of ten spent a week on Plantation Island Resort. Five had to go back to OZ, so the other five moved to Geckos Resort on the main island for four nights.
Well named, because at night we were well entertained watching geckos successfully stalk the insects that were attracted by the lights.
The Resort is so clean, it nearly squeaked. Immaculate gardens, lawns, outdoor settings. The Resort is nestled in a space surrounded by high hills which are covered in dense tropical vegetation. Bit of a walk to the sea - we didn't go. On the lawn just outside our rooms was the Rest Bure. A generous space with a pitched roof, tiled floor, no walls. Furnished with chairs and a table. Quite delightful for reading, drinking coffee etc.
Food: Excellent. Huge meals. On the last night, I asked which meals were small serves. Waitress suggested that I order off the childrens' menu. Problem solved. I hadn't been able to finish any meals.
Accommodation: Set out like a single level Australian motel. Our rooms were clean, spacious, equipped with hair dryer, shampoo, conditioner, soap, fridge, tea and coffee making facilities - with real milk, bottle of water on arrival. We had to buy more bottled water, as they said they couldn't provide filtered water, and did suggest that we should avoid the tap water. Staff also suggested that we avoid the street food to minimise the risk of a tummy upset.
Rooms cooled with a wall unit. Very effective. Our two rooms were interconnected.
Entertainment: Three nights a week, a visiting troupe of performers come and dance, and twirl fire sticks. People book from other resorts. The first night the staff had over 100 people booked for meals. The performers engaged the audience and got them up on stage. We saw a second performance, - less visitors this time. DVDs to borrow. Player and screen in our rooms. There was a TV room - didn't try it. Bikes to hire, for which you pay a refundable deposit . A rather sad playground, two pools, a pool table, a well stocked boutique, a spa where I had a Pedicure, - very different to home, but just as effective !
Day 1 was spent in a pool, Day 2 was spent fishing - 7 yr old caught his first fish, Son hooked a marlin ( identified by crew) but before he got it to the boat the hook broke !!
Day 3 we hired a van to take us to a Wildlife park. We were greeted by a lady who presented us with a banded Iguana called Kevin, and a Fijian snake ( Boa Constrictor) called Wendy. There were two rescued Red Breasted Musk Parrots - who weren't quite as friendly as Kevin and Wendy. The Musk parrots have similar markings to the Australian King Parrot, but the Musk Parrot is a burgundy red. We walked through displays of shells, coral, tropical fish, Iguanas, and open aviaries of birds. There was a water playground designed for small children. A cafe where we bought a good quality pizza and coffee. The family spent a lot of time on a giant water slide. We were well occupied from 10am to 4 pm.
At Geckos, you go to reception to get a code for WIFI each day. This lasts for 6-8 hours.
When we arrived, there were some families with very young children - babes, toddlers, sub teens. Active teenagers need Plantation Island or similar. Gecko is more for adults who want to zone out, and families with children who need constant supervision.
Espresso coffee, ice creams for sale.

Around the periphery of the enclosure, there were a number of projects in various stages of construction. Looks untidy if you wander out there, but doesn't intrude on the visual pleasure of the resort - i.e. can be ignored !

Staff was wonderful. When we left, lots of hugs and requests to return.

Family holiday at Plantation Island and Geckos Resort was an outstanding success.

Room tip: Time your use of WIFI for best use of the availability.
