                              A very spacious room, with a big, clean bathroom. I truly appreciated the clean linen and chocolates on the bed. The hostess was exceptionally friendly and so helpful.. she is a gem. We would definitely recommend this accommodation. Huge thanks

                              We were warmly welcomed. The place was beautifully lit when we arrived. So warm and homely. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. Its a very smart modern set up. Everything was in order. The hosts and staff were friendly and accommodating. The surrounding atmosphere was just great. I would definitely recommend Purple Gecko to anyone. Lovely stay.

                              The whole set-up was beautiful and the bedrooms was well appointed. Both the accommodation and service was satisfactory. Rooms was clean and facilities worked well and all in good order. Purple Gecko is the best by far.

                              I once stayed at purple gecko in 2010 , it was a lovely visit filled with welcoming and warmth. I was sadly disappointed on my arrival to be informed that instead of the 3 nights I had booked for they can only accommodate me for 2 , I felt put out since I had made the booking 2 weeks earlier and no one called me to inform me otherwise. Even when informing me of this , they showed no remorse whatsoever and just gave me an ultimatum ad to ," this is entirely up to you whether you take it or find yourself accommodation elsewhere. " I was sadly disappointed especially since I had already paid...
