Weddings + Events on Isleta El Espino

Thank you for considering Isleta El Espino for your wedding or special event. We’re able to help you plan most every aspect of your day so that you can relax and enjoy time with your guests.

Wedding Reception or Event

We can comfortably host up to 45 guests for a cocktail reception with hors d’oeuvres or up to 30 for a sit down dinner served family-style.

We can also host your wedding ceremony and transition seamlessly from ceremony to the reception using our covered yoga deck and dining and bar areas.



We have 5 rooms that can accommodate 2 guests per room with the possibility of additional rooms for 8 more people on a neighboring island.


For events with a start time of 4 pm or later, a full room buyout is required for the night of the event. For events with a start time before 4 pm, it is necessary to buyout all rooms for the previous night as well. The rate to reserve all 5 rooms ranges depending on the time of year. If you reserve all rooms for 4 or more nights, your 4th night will be 50% off.


We are located just a 10 minute car ride from the center of Granada plus a 10 minute boat ride from Marina Cocibolca. We can arrange all of your ground and water transportation needs for you and your guests.

From The Kitchen

Our chef and bar manager will design a custom menu including a non-alcoholic welcome drink, hors d'oeuvres, and a sit-down meal served family-style with starters, main-dishes, and desserts. A range of dishes will be provided at each table for a sit down meal. All menu items are homemade using ingredients from our organic garden when available.
