El Paraiso Super Club, Playa Mitjorn, Formentera

Concierge.com's insider take:
Of all the islands, Formentera has the fewest options in terms of accommodation, but on the upside, it has the best in terms of beaches and unspoiled terrain. Aside from a handful of blocky resort-style hotels and the odd small hostel, there isn't a great deal to choose from. There is, however, El Paraiso Super Club (formerly Las Banderas)—an eclectic collection of beach bungalows on the beautiful Platja Mitjorn, which serve as three bedrooms for guests. It's pretty basic, with bohemian, 1960s-style decor and Morroccan lanterns, as well as outsize wicker furniture. For seasoned travelers who don't need all the frills, it has a lovely, unencumbered sense of style, but if you're after plush bathrooms and designer furnishings, it may seem a little rustic. A designer "beach hut" in Bali it is not. At night it has a magical vibe; by day it's pure chilled-out chic. The clientele: style-savvy and sun-kissed, with the odd celebrity looking to get away from the paparazzi glare.
Closed November to March.
