After hanging spend 10 days in a very nice but big and corporate hotel in Cala Caldana, Hostal La Palma was a refreshing change. The rooms have recently been done up and are very smart and has a boutique feel to them. Each have a balcony overlooking the pool. Very powerful Air conditioner although we only used it a few times. Safe in the room but no fridge but this was not a problem as we could get ice from the bar which is part of the hotel.

Small pool but adequate for the size of the hotel and the small lawn next to is inhabited by a few turtles!

Continental breakfast is included and while basic perfectly adequate. You can have this in the bar overlooking the charming little square! The bar is very local and has very good atmosphere and we had tapas here once which was very nice. Also had a few drinks most evenings and got chatting to the locals (my partner is a native Spanish speaker).

The hotel is family owned and while the mother is in charge of the kitchen Miguel the son is very much in charge of the hotel and the bar. Both are extremely nice and nothing is too much of a bother. We rented bikes which we could store in their garage and Miguel was more than happy to give advise of what to do in the area.

Would advise to rent bikes as although it is hot it is great way to explore the area. Also some of the best beaches are only a 45 minutes ride away.

We have just returned from this Hostal and we can recommend it. The rooms are extremely well fitted out and very clean. Miquel, the owner attends to all your needs. When we told him our flight was an early evening one he checked to see if we could keep our room and allowed us to do this with no extra charge. The complimentary breakfast was sufficient and enjoyable, eating it outside with the locals. You really felt you were experiencing a 'Spanish' holiday. We will be returning to this excellent accomodation.

Couldn't review the restaurant on its own on TA so settled for the hotel.... Stopped by here today to have lunch on the patio overlooking the harbour. It's a pleasant spot although the north wind was fierce today! We shared calamari la romana, albóndigas, and patatas bravas and it was very tasty. Washed down with four cañas of San Miguel the bill came to 37 Euro. 2.50 EUR per caña, 12 for calamari. Fornells is a pretty place to wander around, it does feel upmarket and the prices are more expensive than for example in Son Bou where we stayed. Felt quite chic and lots of buzzing restaurants selling caldereta for 65 EUR per person. This is a nice place to grab a drink and a bite to eat.

We only spent one night in this hostel, as we were walking our way around Menorca. The room was newly refurbished, and I reckon we were the first ones staying in it.
Really comfy beds!!! We didn't really try the swimming pool as it was just at the start of the season. Helpful and friendly staff.

Overlooking the harbour in the centre of Fornells, La Palma is a small and friendly family run hotel. The bar is very popular with the sailing fraternity and there is an extensive Tapas Menu. For a tasty snack try the hot Chicken or Pork Loin Baguettes.

To the rear of the cafe/bar area there is a pleasant garden with a good size outdoor pool. All the rooms have a balcony overlooking the pool and the countryside towards Monte Toro the highest point on the Island.

The hearty breakfast will set you up for the day exploring the Island and whilst you enjoy your food you can people watch as the locals call in to read the papers and enjoy their first coffee of the day.

We have stayed at La Palma four times over the past three years and have never been disappointed.

Miguel and his Mother also have some high quality seafront villas available to rent that are large enough for extended families.

I´m just back from a week in Fornells, I stayed in Hostal La Palma and it was excellent. It is located right in the centre of the village, the room was cleaned every day, there were fresh towels every day and the restaurant attached to the hostal served really excellent food. The staff were friendly and helpful.
