I have been travelling a lot all over the world and this is actually the best hotel I have ever been to. Not the most posh, but the best. It is small and very beautiful, the garden is a big botanical garden with different plants and animals living in it. The cabins are simple but beautifully decorated and very clean and comfortable. It gets totally dark in the night and the only sounds you hear are all the animals...
The pool is really beautiful and you have it by yourself almost all day long. The staff is very friendly and the owners really helped us in many ways, since we were travelling with our nine months old daughter who got ill during our stay.
Breakfast is nice and the only problem here is that the hotel is too small to host a restaurant and a five minutes ride with the car from all the restaurants in Playa Samara, but the hotel is cooperating with four restaurants in Playa Samara so you can get food delivered from them in thirty minutes.
I would definitely recommend anyone to go to Gecko Verde and I really hope we will be able to come back!
