We stayed here for a week in October with our 5 year old daughter, and it was a fantastic experience for all of us - a great balance between the holidays off the beaten track that my husband and I enjoy, and lots to do to keep our daughter occupied. The hotel really is off the beaten track, making it... More

We stayed for a week mid-August with 2 teenage boys and we all agreed it was one of our favourite holidays ever. The first thing is the location – a breath-taking setting on its own hill with superb 360 views, 3km along a dusty track (perfectly fine to drive). No problems with sat nav- ours took us to the door,... More

We travelled in a hire car from Nerja and as novices driving in Spain found the journey straightforward and fairly quick, with some great scenery. The track to the hotel was a little daunting first time (we half expected the hire car to be full of scratches/dents - it wasn't anything other then very dusty!) but we quickly got used... More

Staying at El Geco Verde is like visiting some cool friends who have gone to live in the coolest place -as far removed from a packaged holiday as possible. The hotel is small, comfortable and our hostsand owners, Ilaria and Des, so friendly, relaxed and accommodating. We changed our minds, several times, about timing of our activities s and Ilaria...

Arrived at this lovely eco hotel to be greeted by Ilaria - fantastic welcome. We opted to do several activities on offer - canyoning - fantastic, kayaking - superb, horse riding - great fun and start grazing - amazing - these were all organised by Ilaria through local companies - all were well worth the experience, our teenage boys thoroughly...

El Geco Verde is a true gem of a hotel. The owners, Des and Ilaria really try to make your stay special. On arrival, my 7 year-old son and I were struck down with a stomach bug picked up on our road trip. That wrote off the first day of our 4 day visit. They managed to accommodate our hiking... More

We went to El Geco Verde as a partial family (wife and eldest daughter aged 23) looking for a holiday that would be more interesting than lying on a beach (which I can only do for very short periods before becoming bored!) Well, Des and Ilaria certainly delivered that. We went trekking over mountains, horse riding, canyoning, kayaking, mountain biking... More

We stayed for four nights with our children at this lovely eco-boutique hotel, in a lesser known corner of Andalucia. From arrival the stay was excellent, with a very friendly greeting from the owners (and their pets!). With terrific suggestions of things to see and do during the day we thought this was the best place we found in our... More

We had a great family activity week. The location is a fantastic and unique setting (look at the photos on the web site). The owners are very friendly and can't do enough to help, organising the week's activities in a very flexible way.

If you follow the written directions to El Geco Verde, you will find yourself travelling approx 10 mins along a windy country lane to find this welcoming country B&B. Our room 6 was a huge room with double bed plus 2 singles for the children, and spacious bathroom - views across the olive groves and Lola the dog keeping guard... More
