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

This was probably our most relaxing holiday ever that has left us with some perfect memories of happy, family time. The hotel is just lovely, accessed by a 3km long part gravel driveway, very rural with gorgeous views across the mountains, comfortable beds, perfect hosts and delightful home cooked food. Our days consisted of relaxing breakfasts served by Derek, some... More

We are just back from a wonderful week with Derek and Ilaria in their beautiful home/hotel. We slept well in a clean and comfortable family room, saw skies full of stars before we went to sleep, and awoke to a gentle chorus of bird song. Breakfast was served on the terrace (can be inside if you prefer, but we loved... More

Made to feel very welcome by Derek and Ilaria in their lovely home/hotel. You are in the middle of nowhere, with no noise, no traffic, only olive groves, almonds and the birds. This is a good place to escape from everything for a few days. It is about half an hours drive from the Natural Park where you can do... More

I could reiterate what many other reviewers have said about the excellence of the hospitality, the location, the food, the comfort at El Geco Verde, but instead I'll write about a typical day there in late November. El Geco Verde is 900M above sea level so it's cold at this time of year and the olive and almond groves are... More

A great choice for us to relax for 4 days after a week of city site seeing. Derek and Ilania are lovely people who go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The location was fantastic, so quiet and relaxing yet only 20 minutes from the lovely village of Castril. Hard to fault and our thanks to them... More
