“Joining the praise for Geco Resort”
Reviewed 11 October 2011

We spent lovely ten days in the beginning of September in the Geco Resort, enjoying our apartment on the first floor, the stunning terrace with a view of the olive trees extending into the sea and the neighboring island. The resort is remarkably well done, with great attention to detail and quality of every single aspect - from the rooms, to the furniture, the gardens and the pool. All apartments were full when we were there, yet there was never any noise or crowd by the pool. Antonio and Paula are gentle, warm and welcoming, always there for the guests. Our 9-month old son loved his first dip and the many subsequent ones in the swimming pool, adored playing on the lawn under the trees... Everything else is within easy reach (walking distance) - good food, good wine, adorable little town, amazing beaches, the best sea ever! Warmly recommended to all!

Room Tip: Apartments on the first floor of the main building with sea view and big terrace with lovely dining...

The excellent reviews on tripadvisor led us to choosing this resort on Favignana. We never regretted it for a moment. If you are looking for a beautiful, clean, quiet, welcoming and homely resort to stay in, this is the place for you.
The owners Antonio and Paola were extremely welcoming and helpful. They were chatty without being intrusive and really made us feel welcome and at home. They kept going out of their way to help us and give us advice on where the best beaches were, the best restaurants, etc. They really listened when we asked for their advice and they were never wrong.
The apartments we stayed in (we switched halfway) are cleaned every day by very friendly cleaners who always tried to accomodate the irregular sleeping hours of our 1 year old. Somehow they still managed to fit us into their schedule to make sure our place was clean.
The resort is extremely well maintained, and the large lawn and pool were both wonderful for our little daughter to play in.

In June we, my husband and our son of 9 months and I, stayed for a week at Geco Resort at Favignana. And we loved it! Geco Resort is a paradise on a paradise. Favignana is a lovely and beautiful island with its Cala Azzuro and Cala Rosso, the cosy village, Lido Beach and much more.The people are very friendly. And the food is delicious!

Geco Resort offers all you need for a perfect stay on this island. Our room was very cosy and clean. It is very tranquille. At night you do not hear a thing! Every morning we enjoyed having our breakfast on our own large terrace.

We loved walking to the beach, Lido Beach, with our son in his stroller. When we didn’t feel like going the beach we found it very relaxing to stay at the pool. Very quiet! Our son Luca also had a great time swimming in the pool. After our swim we enjoyed the tranquility of the beautiful and well taken care of garden and the view of the olivetree yard of Antonio.

Geco Resort is situated only 5 minutes walking of the village. The village offers a nice variety of places to eat. Antonio and Paula are more than willing to advise you where to go.

We love looking back on our stay at Favignana and at Geco Resort. We have good memories. When we were back home we felt 'homesick' for a whole week.

Antonio and Paula are a lovely and helpful couple. We are dying to return.

Bob, Rosa e Luca

PS As we were the first people from The Netherlands to stay at Geco Resort we hope more Dutch people will follow

My partner and I spent the first week in October at Geco resort and couldn't have asked for a more lovely experience. Antonio and Paola were the perfect hosts - considerate and accommodating without being remotely intrusive.

Our room was clean and cosy (and silent/pitch black at night), the grounds and pool were beautiful and the island itself was stunning. It really was a haven, and the most relaxing place I have ever stayed.

We hope to return next year, and the year after!

We stayed here for a week in a studio apartment, which has all the amenities you need to be self sufficient. The real jewel of Geco, is the stunning garden which is so well looked after and tended. Antonio, the host is very pleasant and is always present to help out with restaurant recommendations, directions to beaches and useful information.

Apartments are arranged in a cleer way, giving a sense of privacy and having the entire place for yourself.

We thoroughly enjoyed a relaxing week at Favignana, a place where you basically bike to the beach, enjoy the sun and head to the village piazza for the aperitivo and a nice, basic dinner at one of the trattorie.

An excellent option, just outside the village, but yet so close you can easily walk to the port.
