Spinguera is everything you would imagine it to be from the pictures and the reviews... And then some! The hotel and the decor are incredibly beautiful, there is wonderful local staff, the meals are great, etc. You really can't fault anything, as long as you keep in mind that isn't a 5 star resort (but something much more charming!).

Great attention to detail, great staff, lovely dog and wonderful evening meals. Make sure you go when it's hot for the full benefit! It is, as everybody says, a fabulous place to relax, chill and recharge in about an isolated a place as you will ever find so close to an airport. Met some lovely people there and will definitely...

We stayed seven nights including Christmas (2014). Transfers were kindly organized by Larissa, owner of the site. She and her team take great care of guests, in a friendly, unfussy way. The location is remote, making it a very peaceful and relaxing place to spend time. On three days, we walked to the nearby beach (a steady 30-minute walk), and... More

We stayed a week in Spinguera and really enjoyed it. Larissa, the owner was very helpful in both planning the trip and whilst we were there. The fact that she has built this place literally from the ground and with eco / sustainable credentials is hugely impressive. Theres a real personal touch to the place and an eye for design... More

Quiet, peaceful, close to nature. Charming and original housing, great and friendly service, good food. We loved it here! It's a 30 minute walk to a very beautiful beach - first day we where there we where all alone! Other days there where some kite-surfers because of lively, big waves (still possible to swim though, with a bit of caution)... More

We stayed for a week at Spinguera with the sole purpose of wanting to relax and get away from it all. What we found was exactly that, but in even more beautiful surroundings than I imagined. The place has been beautifully renovated with much love and attention to detail; it's truly a joy to spend your time there- even after... More

My fiancée and I chose to Spinguera Ecolodge for our honeymoon on a number of accounts, firstly we desired a tranquil paradise off the beaten track and secondly with fully catered facilities. The 'ecolodge' edge of Spinguera swung our decision. When we arrived at the beautiful airport a local gentlemen welcomed us and drove us across the island, over tarmac... More

It's small, it's chich but simple, it's away from everything but in the middle of a wild and breathtaking nature. Wind and sea are the only sounds you can hear. Forget the stress and get relaxed: quite easy and extremmely pleasant in Spinguera. It was our second time there and it won't be the last one.

The Spinguera is a truly unique experience. Larissa has done a magnificent job in restoring and decorating this old fishing village. The view is a amazing and the staff is very friendly. The hammocks on the beach were by far my favorite feature.
