“Beautiful location, extrange management.”
Reviewed 12 October 2010

Nice hotel and location, very poor management. Beautiful views and simple white modern decoration. Very good breakfast . Unfortunately staff seems always stressed. Friendly waitress had to serve breakfast on her own for days, to the point of breaking into tears! Receptionist did not have time in three days and after several request, to send someone to remove two extra beds left in our room, for previous guest. Finally when they did, hair and pieces of paper, were left on floor for days.
Gardeners started cutting the grass right by the restaurant deck during breakfast, until guest asked them to move to the other end of the gardens. The Hotel management decided to paint the wooden deck around the restaurant and hotel entrance on the 17 of July, peak season, creating mess and chaos for days, when the hotel is empty during the winter months. Hotel is overpriced in high season.

I Have Just Returned from Gecko Staying at the Beach Club this week. My husband booked a surprise weekend to celebrate Our 15th Anniversary and I feel Compelled to write and express how absolutely perfect The Weekend WAS.

The Beach Club is Perfectly Located by the beach , close enough to Ibiza That the transfer took no time at all But far enough away to feel remote and exclusive Also . The Garden Room booked was beautiful and all staff very friendly and helpful.

The Was a perfect weekend and a wonderful treat for us both. We look forward to Returning .

We had a superb 4 night break based around a friend's wedding. Dino and the team looked after us very well and gave us superb advice on where to visit during the day and where to eat dinner. The hotel has been thoughtfully designed and decorated throughout; complimenting the superb beachside location. The rooms are tastefully decorated, in keeping with the surroundings, and give you the feeling of simple luxury. The service and the food were good; the team worked very hard to make it a memorable wedding. If I return to the island I will revisit the hotel and do not hesitate in recommending it.

Stayed here for our honeymoon after getting married in Ibiza. The hotel looks amazing and the grounds are really pretty. It's right on the beach and you can also sunbathe in the garden with waitress service for excellent cocktails. The staff were really friendly and the breakfasts were particurly good. We ate at the restaurant and also went out to places which the staff recommended and booked for us. Easy to hire a car and go off to see the Island, only downside of Gecko is that it is not on the best beach and there was a bit of seaweed unlike other beaches around the island. The rooms were clean and newly decorated but did seem a little overpriced in terms of size and luxury. However overall we enjoyed our stay here a lot. Would definitely go back.

We stayed three nights for a wedding at this hotel. Our family room - one double and two single beds - was a good size and extremely well equipped with air conditioning and a more than adequate bathroom (shower only). We had one of half a dozen garden rooms, perfectly placed for the beach while also very quiet.
From the moment we arrived, staff were very welcoming and attentive. The public areas are luxurious, with outdoor settees and tables, awning-covered eating areas, and sunloungers on a large grassy area. There is no pool but the beach, right next to the hotel, also has sunloungers and umbrellas, but does not belong to the hotel, so expect a charge. Swimming is clean and safe. However, be prepared to avert your eyes if you are of a sensitive disposition: nudists of all ages dot the beach in both directions.
Formentera's attractions are limited, and the Gecko Beach is fairly remote, so it is ideal for those looking for a luxurious beach holiday, with perhaps the odd excursion to the island's beach bars.
Lastly: what a great venue for a wedding. Outdoor seating, a great wedding banquet and dancing into the night.

Just returned from 5 days at Geck Beach, with my Husband and our two boy's, aged 3 and 1 year. We had the most amazing time, the staff could not do enough for you, the restaurant was 5 star, with a great childrens menu and the family room with it's own terrace was ideal, for small children. We felt we could really relax , while the children played safely in the beautiful gardens.
Have already booked for next year !!

We have just come back from a complete 20 days stay at the Gecko Beach Club. Me, my husband and our 2 boys; 4 and 7 years old stayed in a beautiful renovated room with big terrace and direct acces to garden and beach. We enjoyed our stay enormously; the admosphere of this hotel is very special; it is very relaxing uncomplicated and leaves each family its freedom. Their are only appr. 27 rooms and there is always plenty of space / sunbeds in their big garden. The beach right in front of the hotel (60 meters from our rooms terrace) is very pretty, azur blue water, white sand, suitable for small children, and also not full. The hotel is visited , in my opinion by pleasant people; there is interaction but no forced upon commun activities or loud club-like actions. In the garden all children spontaneously played together. The restaurant has a very good kitchen and a nice mix of foodstyles; local fish dishes together with a more international kitchen, the kids menue is extensive and good. Prices are compared to other restaurants on the island very reasonable ! Location on the isalnd is perfect; even on walking distance there are numerous other cool places (Bleu Bar, Lucky, voga mari) to go to in the evening.
Conclusion ; very unique spot in Europe !! We will defenitely return some day !
Thank you to all staff members.
