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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

We spent a week here in July and couldn't have been happier with our choice. As so many people have said in other reviews, Ilaria and Des are fantastic hosts who make you feel welcome and at home from the moment you arrive.

If you want to get away from it, then this is the place. It really is in the middle of nowhere but there is a well stocked library with books and DVDs and wifi so you aren't totally cut off. Illaria is a great cook and both her and Derek and their lovely sons made us feel so welcome. We...

As previous reviewers have noted, El Geco Verde's lovely hosts make every effort to make sure their guests feel at home. The hotel is a long way off the main road - 5 km or so, but the track is in good condition (provided you follow the directions provided and not your sat nav). Sitting atop a rise the views...

In all the years we have been travelling we have never gone anywhere a second time. We have been to lovely places and stayed in amazing accomodation but travel time is precious so we have never revisited.....Until we went to el geco verde for the second time in 8 months. And it really was as fantastic the second time round....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
El Geco Verde is an ecological country hotel with stunning views in the magical Altiplano region of Granada, Andalucia. Our little hotel is fully off-grid, family run and family friendly. We specialise in tailor-made walking and activity holidays, so you can go at your own pace and get the right balance between action and relaxation. The nearby natural parks of Cazorla and Castril offer fantastic terrain for all outdoor activities, from idyllic mountain walks to lovely calm lakes for kayaking with the kids. Let our inside knowledge guide you through this fascinating and authentic corner of rural Spain, from sleepy whitewashed towns to curious troglodyte villages, discovering along the way a wealth of archaeological treasures and gastronomic delights. We offer twin/double rooms, family rooms or the whole hotel to hire, with capacity for up to 20 people. So whether you are longing to get off the beaten track, seeking adventure with the kids or planning a special get-together for colleagues or friends, have no doubts; El Geco Verde is the place to be. ... more   less
