Awesome vacations start with great food.

Every meal we serve is prepared from the freshest best-quality ingredients.

While we do serve a variety of Mexican entrees, our menu is not limited to the local cuisine. We also feature international flavors including Vietnamese, Thai & Korean as well as a collection of American favorites.

Having lived in a number of different countries from around the world, Aileen has a knack for creating fusion dishes that are melt in your mouth delicious.

  • Have dietary restrictions?

    We do our best to cater to any and all special dietary needs including food allergies. We can prepare menus for vegetarian, vegan or gluten free diets.

    If you’re the type of traveler that likes to eat light and healthy while on holiday we’ll be sure to prepare plenty of salads and provide a wide selection of tropical fruit, fresh fruit juices and mega healthy smoothies.

    How does the food work?

    At Gecko Rock you won’t be ordering meals off of a menu like at a traditional restaurant. Instead, we put together a customized menu of dishes perfectly suited to your tastes.

    The process works like this:

    1. A few weeks before your stay we’ll send you a questionnaire to get basic information about your likes/dislikes and any dietary restrictions.

    2. Armed with this information we’ll put together breakfast, lunch and dinner ideas suited just for you.
