This tranquil spot offers beautiful views and a laid-back atmosphere. And the food’s pretty special, too.
This family-run hotel was one of the first on the island, and it’s got old Spanish charm, from a whitewashed façade to shaded courtyards. On the dining front, there’s à la carte dining every night.
The hotel lies on the edge of a natural salt-lake beach. While it feels like a secluded spot, the shops and bars of La Savina port are just a 5-minute walk away.

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.
A beautifully decorated bar with a country feel to it - think light coloured wicker chairs and marble topped tables. It's friendly and well stocked, and to top it off, it's got a beach view too.
You'll find a range of watersports just 200 metres away from the hotel.

Good, basic hotel
Stayed at hotel for for first time in early/mid July based upon Trip Advisor reviews. Hotel was as expected. Basic hotel with friendly, helpful staff. Good location although you need some type of transportation to get to the many beautiful beaches on Formentera. Hotel beach is more for wading as opposed to swimming. You can walk to several restaurants/shops and there is a nearby grocery store. I would splurge on a sea view room as the views are fantastic and you are away from road. Breakfast is adequate. Only complaint is walls are thin and you get noise from halls and adjacent rooms. Not really a problem if you sleep normal hours. Formentera is a beautiful island with beaches and water to rival some of the best in the world. However, if you are looking for modern 5 star hotels and restaurants you may want to look elsewhere. It has a somewhat Bohemian feel. I suspect many of the locals are descendants of pirates or hippies from the 60s.... a good thing in my book. Suggestions Blue Bar - coolest alien beach bar on earth. Es Pujols - restaurants and market on water. Sant Francesc Xavier - good for shopping. Check out Dossea (men's swim suits) and Xalak (best t shirts). Find a secluded beach - Illetes is fine, but too crowded. So many other options. Swimsuits optional by the way... La Mola - nothing special, but drive up the mountain offers spectacular views.More

Lovely hotel with very friendly staff (but...)
Hostal Savina is a lovely little hotel - or hostel - with super warm and helpful staff: the receptionists, the bargirl and the cleaning ladies. Thank you for a great stay! You make the hotel what it is. The view from our room was beautiful and the atmosphere in the lounge area relaxed (even though the music could be updated a bit). We enjoyed spending time on the beach watching the sun go down. Probably the best place to stay on Formentera. Butâ¦visitors should know, that the beach in front of the hotel (the one you see on the fotos) is not the best for bathing/swimming (you can do it, sure, but there are lots of small boats lying there, and the water is very low). You'll find beautiful and clean water/beaches on e.g. Ses Illetes. And beds in the hotel are very short, if you're taller than 1.80 m, you'll sleep with your feet in the air. Also, half board dinner was disappointing, so we cancelled it for the rest of the week after the first evening (which was no problem at all). Breakfast was normal, nothing special, a bit industrial (would have been lovely with e.g. homemade bread). A general comment about Formentera: Formentera is dominated by Italians (the tourists there, which is really overwhelming, but also the people working in the service industry around the island), which means that Italian food dominates the island, which overall was rather disappointing when you expect fresh, local food.More

lovely & relaxing hotel by the port
I've been enjoying much the hospitality of this very well kept hotel! everything is taken care to the details, from the cleanness of the room, sheets and towels, to the beauty and comfort of furniture both in the rooms and on the little balconies. So close to the water, you walk 3 meters and you are in the sea! There are comfortable beds on the shore as well, for total relaxation. At sunset they play sweet music at the bar and you can dine most healthy food, as the cook is vegan. I had a delicious veggie lasagna and a supertasty octopus grilled - with a wide choice of wines. A fantastic menu and all with a superb look ! The staff is friendly and helpful too, so I believe this is one of the best places for a stay in Formentera.More
Another great stay
2nd time visit and still very special. Great people who make you feel most welcome - even recognised from the last time we came 3 yrs ago. Amazing contrast from the outside to the bar area overlooking the bay as the outside road is busy at times (main road to ferry - but quiet mornings/ evenings) Setting is great. Restaurant is excellent and ate there each evening as the food is excellent (and we are foodies) residents get a different menu to the more expensive restuarant but same kitchen apparently. Rooms clean and decent size - but the bay view rooms are worth the money(we had the first floor roadside ) . Communal lounge areas lovely. Great variety at breakfast buffet ( only gripe is that the pastries not always fresh) . The location at the port allows you just to walk from the ferry to the hotel and hire bicycles to the ride to the beach along the harbour wall - don't join the armies of tourists hiring noisy polluting scooters to travel 2miles to the best beach in Europe- please! Harbour area not much of a buzz at night but quaint - pujols is the only town with a buzz on the island - that and the blue bar at mijhorn - but you don't come to form enters for that. In summary - lovely hotel always in demand with elements of being a boutique hotel about it (but fortunately not the prices) - can't imagine staying anywhere else.More
