This was the first resort I have ever chosen and it was a great choice! My partner and I spent seven days here and plan to return. Super relaxing, no cars, sirens, airplanes, only the sound of the surf. The food was excellent! Aileen the co-owner is a fabulous cook (and person). We did not have a meal that we...

My husband and I visited southern Oaxaca for the first time and we stayed 6 days at Gecko Rock Resort. The first thing we noticed was that the resort is secluded. We basically had a private beach just a 2 minute walk away. The beach is beautiful; no trash, no people selling trinkets, no loud music. The food at Gecko...

In one word…outstanding! The owner/operators arranged for transportation from the airport to the resort and were there to meet us when we arrived. As you arrive and see all the trees, the palapa, the pool and the casitas, you instantly know it’s going to be an amazing experience. The casitas are extremely clean and well-designed. The in-room AC units and...

Mike and Aileen's small, intimate resort has the perfect atmosphere for tranquil relaxation. With a maximum of 8 guests at the resort at any time, a beautiful and clean pool to relax in, your own private rooftop hammock with ocean view, and a 2 minute walk to the ocean... you just can't beat it. Aileen prepares great food based on...

This place is located in paradise. Getting to the resort from Seattle was a bit of an adventure, but once you get there you don't want to leave.

Thank you for making the long trek out from the Pacific Northwest to stay with us and for letting others know that an extra layover is worth the hassle to get to the Oaxacan Riviera :) We can't wait to see you guys again...particularly since you are such a talented fisherman and brought back those monster Spanish Mackerels.
