La Sabina  

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.

Great Hotel

My husband and I went to this hotel first week in September. Will keep the review short. We had a great time. Room with sea view was lovely and spotless. We were half board. Dining experience was great. The ambience at this hotel was the best thing about it- it was so chilled loved it and thank you to Lesley for fixing the bike problem. Beautiful place can't wait to go backMore

On the strength of rave reviews we booked a holiday at hostal La Savina in Formentera. Where to start ?? The hostal is nice enough ,advertised (complete with pictures) as being on the edge of a crystal clear lagoon complete with small beach. What the pictures don't show is the seaweed you have to wade thru to reach the turquoise water....seaweed that has turned to an ankle deep , brown sludgy mess, for the first couple of feet and we found this repulsive. It could also have been responsible for the awful smell that drifted around from time to time . Hotel staff are lovely, smiley and friendly. However our air-conditioning wasn't working properly (a must when the temperatures are over 30 degrees) and despite us asking for it to be sorted at least twice no one actually looked at it until the afternoon before we were due to return home. At least we were able to sleep on our last night ! We were half board and the service for our evening meal included a drink. On the first night my husband had beer and I had water. They served the beer in a glass not much bigger than a wine glass and gave us a small bottle of water. They served us two coffees to finish. The second night they asked my husband if he wanted a large beer and asked me if I wanted a large water . We said yes and again were given two coffees to finish. This was our routine for the rest of the week. When we checked out on Fri am we were presented with a bill for an extra 48 euros to cover the large beer and the coffees. The hostal staff had been very ,very unprofessional in not telling us that coffee and large beers were extra to us. They had charged us 4 euros per night for my husbands large beer but he should have had a drink in with the price ...given they only served a half beer as inclusive the extra charge should have only been about 2 euros. However the main point is we should have been informed that large beers and coffees incurred an extra charge. It is a nasty way to treat customers by not saying anything then giving them a hefty bill at the end of the holiday . Kettle provided in room but no drinks so take your own sachets of coffee etc. Mediocre background music is on a loop which drives you crazy after a while. Beware on Sat night they have what can only be described as a beach rave party , It attracts loads of youngsters who drink and smoke on the beach whilst dancing to the loud music. Given the hostals main visitors ore over 50 s and young families it seems a pointless thing to do but luckily the disco (or noise )stops about 10.30 . We understood the Island had lots of soft sandy beaches and there are some dotted here and there. Lots of rocks in other parts abutting the sea with sea weed everywhere and pretty deep water .We were a good 30 mins walk off a pretty beach , not ideal in such hot, humid conditions.I know review is negative but our holiday was nothing like we expected. Formentera is quite barren, deserted and even shabby in parts. Around la Savina marina are only expensive restaurants and a few expensive bars. A handful of market stalls all selling similar goods and a couple of supermarkets and that's your lot. As for hostal La Savina we feel we were treated like second class citizens....not even being allowed to sit and have dinner at the front tables which overlook the lagoon ,these being reserved (presumably ) for when some one better came along. Room tip .. We had room 106. A nice room . However room 105 and maybe 104 will have their view from the balcony obscured by a big tree .More

Heaven on an island!

This was probably one of the best hotels I´ve stayed in! Sure, I´ve stayed in other fancy hotels with more stars yet much less charm... Let´s say that there is something about La Savina that has you from the moment you step through the door. It´s relaxing, unpretentious atmosphere allows you to be yourself and feel at home on the dreamy Formentera island. The food is to die for too! I will definitely be returning before too long!More


Fantastic hotel and staff

Brilliant place and so peaceful away from the busy es pujols, We have been coming to formentera for the past 25 years and have stayed all over the island. And please be rest assured that this place is the best by far. Have stayed here for past 5 years and its so nice to be staying in family run hotel. Staff are reliable and sooooooo helpful. I have 9 month baby and they can not do enough. Stayed in a seaview room this time for first time and it's definitely worth the extra euros on the room, Clean and modern Only recommendation would be fridge needs update 5 out 5 everytime Ben claire and elle I More

Birthday holiday

We stayed here as a couple in July for one week for my birthday. Booked via Thomson. Emailed hotel via fb page to advise staying for my birthday and to see if we could upgrade the room to a seaview, but did not receive any reply which was disappointing and unable to upgrade when we arrived. Lovely little hotel. Excellent maid service. Great breakfast with good cava! Nice bar area overlooking the lagoon and a good base for exploring the rest of the island. I loved it but my husband would have preferred a hotel with a swimming pool. We had a lovely chilled out week here.More
