Built around a courtyard in traditional Spanish style, family-run La Sabina is on the edge of a natural salt-lake beach. You can walk or cycle to the nature reserve, harbour and beaches, or simply flop down on the warm, soft sands. With good value accommodation in a lovely setting, you’ll be glad you picked La Sabina.

La Savina Restaurant*
Set on a tiled terrace, facing the harbour, this is a great place to dine when the sun is setting and the boats are coming in.
Beautifully decorated bar, with a country feel to it, light coloured wicker chairs and marble topped tables. It's a friendly and well-stocked bar, also with great beach views.
Just 200m away.

Amazing spot but hotel has some negative points
This hotel is located in the most amazing spot ever. It has its own beach, well it's probably not private but no-one who isn't from the hotel goes there. The hotel offers a number of sunbeds of different types and we were very surprised to discover they were nearly always all free. We never did figure out where all the people from the hotel went during the day, but we were happy to have the beach and practically the whole bay to ourselves. Having being told Formentera is full of tourists in August, this was a ver pleasant surprise. The hotel is just on the outskirsts of La Savina port. You can walk no problem (5min) from the port. We didn't realise how close it was and got a taxi from the ferry port and it was literally 500m and he charged us 8 Eur!!! There are 2 types of rooms in this hotel, the older rooms and the newer ones. The newer ones are to the right when looking out to sea, but they are around the bar area. The other ones are to the left when looking out to sea, and I had read you can smell the cooking from the restaurant and this is true, and not very pleasant. We had an older room with view out to the sea for 6 days. The bed was very small, and old, so not a good, hard mattress, but one person nearly flies out of the bed when the other moves or turns. Then the last day we had a more modern room and there the bed was much bigger and much more comfortable. Both rooms were very noisy, and the cleaning staff starts early, shouting at one another down the halls that echo. Doors have some sort of system where they slam shut, so there are doors slamming at all hours of the night and day. So definately if you are noise sensitive you need to be patient. The other thing about this hotel is that the staff is uptight and not in the least friendly. We were so disappointed by this that we didn't try the restaurant once. There are absurd rules all over the place: if you have buffet breakfast you can't take it out to the terrace (you can only have a la carte breakfast on the terrace), people who stay at the hotel and have dinner included can only dine at a certain time, we tried to change room but we were told no, even without looking at the book. Ok the hotel was full but we were willing to change a room with sea view for one looking out on to the road, and I am pretty sure if asked someone would have wanted our view. And even if no-one had, at least I would have felt they tried and it wasn't straight NO. At 165 EUR a night I expect very different service and attitude. From the bar (and rooms) there are the most amazing sunsets, and I have experienced few things so amazing as a mojito on the beach watching the sunset, or peering into a stary sky with chillout music in the background. So my conclusion is: if you can ignore bad service and absurd rules, you can accept the early morning noise (or catch up with a siesta!) the place is quite spectacular. La Savina port has many bars and restaurants, so it's a nice addition to the hotel.More

"A very pleasant experience "
We stayed at the Hostal for a week in the middle of August after having booked what we thought was a great value deal with Thomsons last winter. That's exactly what it turned out to be. Having visited Formentera many times over the years, always at high season, we are aware of how expensive the accommodation can be, however this place proved great value for money. The staff were excellent, the rooms were small but well equipped and kept spotlessly clean. The public areas (reception, bar and terrace restaurant) had a welcoming atmosphere and there isn't a better place to chill out with a drink and watch the sun go down. We enjoyed two evening meals at the Hostal (special rates for residents, 6 euro for a starter, 7.5 euro main course and 3 euro for dessert) which was excellent value - the seafood was especially tasty. Having done the package deals and the "arrange your own flights, transfer, ferry and accommodation thing to the island on many occasions we have concluded that, in high season Thomsons deal to the Hostal La Savina is by far the cheapest and best way to visit and stay on this beautiful island. There are arguably "better" hotels on Formentera (The Tahiti is fabulous) but for value for money and location this is the place to stay. Ps. If you do stay, pay the small extra charge and book a sea view room, it' well worth it.More
Wonderful la Savina!
We visited La Savina in July this year - for the 14th time! it continues to be a wonderful little hotel! The service is always excellent and discreet. The bar, restaurant and reception staff are welcoming and efficient. The rooms are small but beautifully maintained and the housekeeping staff are excellent. We are always reluctant to sing the praises of a 'good' place, preferring to keep it to ourselves!! However, we feel La Savina goes from 'strength to strength' and justly deserves all the praise it receives. We have already booked our 15th visit for next year! It is a gem!!More
"A very pleasant stay at La Savina"
This was my first stay in Formentera and I chose La Savina for its location. I was given a sea view room, as requested and the view was breath taking. However, I would not have liked a room overlooking the very busy road at the front of the hotel. The room was small but very adequate with a balcony and the fridge and kettle were a nice touch. The hotel terrace leads onto a small quiet beach, and the Balinese beds ensure relaxing sunbathing. The service in the bar and restaurant was good with polite and courteous staff and my room was kept very clean. Food was of a good standard with plenty of choice for breakfast. I had not intended to eat in the hotel on an evening, but found that the residents evening menu, available between 7 and 9pm was very good value compared to other restaurants in the resort. If you are looking for a relaxing stay away from busy beaches and don't mind eating in then, La Savina is a great choice.More

Beautiful Formentera - La Savina Hostal
What can I say? Fantastic La Savina Hostel, just a stones throw from the port in Formentera. We have just arrived back in the UK after a blissful week. The hotel is superb, we booked through a well known tour operator after reading the reviews on trip advisor, but I have to say the hotel far surpassed the standards we were expecting. La Savina Hostel is only rated a 2 in the hotel world but to our experience was nearer a 4 star! The hotel is beautiful, classy and has lovely little areas to sit either inside or outside. The bar area leads straight to the little beach with crystal clear shallow water, and there are lovely double daybeds on the beach for residents with sun canopies & umbrellas. We could lie there until sunset - it is so peaceful and beautiful. Our room (no 002) was on the ground floor (extra charge as it overlooked the beach - but well worth it), was decorated tastefully with bleached wood décor and lovely furnishings. Our shower room was small but very well equipped with a lovely glass sink, corner shower and natural mosaic tiles. The private balcony faced west and was hot and sunny all day until sunset. The staff were lovely and friendly, breakfasts large and varied on a help yourself basis - fresh fruit, meats, cheese, bacon, eggs, omelettes, juice, coffee , tea or chocolate - really good and served until 11am which we found superb. Dinner not expensive to residents if you ate before 9pm, roast lamb & fish especially good at 7 euros per person. We don't usually go to the same place twice for our holidays as the world is a big place, but we definitely will be returning to La Savina Hostal. FANTASTIC!More
