Rustige veilige omgewing. Goeie ontbyt en vriendelike personeel. Kamer ruim, gerieflik en netjies. Lugversorger sal 'n aanwins wees (besoek tydens hittegolf). Aanbeveel.

Goeie diens en vriendelike personeel.

Ons is baie vriendelik ontvang. Van buite af lyk dit asof die plek verwaarloos is, maar binne was linne vars en skoon. Die bad kan moontlik vervang word. Kos wat bedien was was baie lekker en daar was 'n aangename atmosfeer in die eetsaal,

'n Uistekende basis vir 'sight-seeing'.

Ons het Gecko Lodge gebruik as 'n basis om die besienswaardighede langs die Panorama-roete sowel as die wildtuin te besoek. Dit was heerlik sentraal geleë vir hierdie doeleinde. Ons gesinskamer was baie netjies en ons het heerlik geslaap. Ontbyt was ook lekker. Die personeel was baie vriendelik en het graag gehelp met versoeke.

Die plek is rustig en die wagte is behulpsaam, hulle loop saam met jou na jou kamer toe al is dit 23:00 die aand. Ontvangs was goed. Ek beveel die plek aan vir iemand wat 'n rustige naweek wil hê.

Die restaurant is uitstaande, die ligging puik.

'n Staptog na die rivier toe met die lodge se toestemming is baie mooi. Die enigste nadeel van die lodge is die baie swak grondpad na die hek toe. Teen 5 km/h het ons erg rondgebons in die kar. Die hoofhek en ontvangs is ook nie goed gemerk nie. Die restaurant se kos was uitstaande, praat net met die ontvangs oor hoe laat dit is.

Not user friendly.

Not user friendly. Too quiet to visit. Non availability of TV. Management not friendly and impatient.

Gecko Lodge's response

Dear Sarah,

Thank you very much for taking the time to review us!
Yes, Gecko Lodge is situated in the quiet Sabie Valley to enjoy the nature and the quietness, and yes, we do not advertise anywhere TV's, as people enjoy listening to the water, the birds and the owls and Bush Babies at Night. We believe that I have been very patient at 2.30 in the morning when you called for directions :-) as already discussed with you on checking out.

Kind Regards

Dubbelkamer en gesinskamer.

Die eienaars en werknemers is baie aangenaam en behulpsaam. Die ligging is wonderlik en die area is pragtig. Die enigste kritiek wat ek kan lewer is die badkamers van die verblyf: die bad (en stort bo dit) is baie ongemaklik (die stort is baie laag) en effe verwaarloos. Ons wasbak se kraan kon nie heeltemal toe nie en die bad het slegte roesvlekke gehad.

Baie oulike verblyf met restaurant wat jou onmiddellik laat voel dat jy met vakansie is.

Die kamers bied die basiese en is skoon en netjies. Drinkwater word verskaf en regte koffie word voorsien. Personeel is baie vriendelik en gasvry en laat jou dadelik tuis voel. Aandete word addisioneel verskaf en sluit 'n Afrika-dans en -sangvertoning by 'n kampvuur in. Ons het lekker gesmul en die aan was 'n voortreflike begin tot ons Wildtuin-vakansie. Die ontbyt wat ingesluit is in die tarief was ook baie lekker en die personeel was vroeg reeds gereed om die gaste te ontvang of selfs 'n ontbytkospakkie te maak sou jy vroeër as die begin van ontbyt wou vertrek. Dit was ook stil sodat jy genoeg rus kan kry as jy weer 'n lang reis het wat voorlê. Ons sou maklik nog tyd by hierdie rustige plek kon deurbring!

Het Gecko Lodge gekies as die basis waarvandaan ons die Kruger Wildtuin en ander besienswaardighede kon verken. Dit is goed geleë daarvoor.

Ons was baie beïndruk met die netjiese en skoon verblyf wat ons daar aangebied is. Ons gashere Gideon, Anja en David was vriendelik en het uit hul pad gegaan om ons tuis en gerieflik te laat voel. Die etes was keurig aangebied en smaaklik voorberei. Ons sal beslis Gecko Lodge weer besoek en sal dit sonder voorbehoud by ander voornemende besoekers aanbeveel.
