Cala Fornells is a pretty stretch of coastline adjoining the western end of the seaside resort of Paguera, approximately 20 minutes west of Palma. It consists of apartments and a few villas built close or frontline to the sea, an attractive beach and a small but delightful cove. At roughly the point where the road ends there are 3 hotels. The 4 star Hotel Coronado, a frontline property to the sea and the Hotel Cala Fornells, first opened in 1947, with just 2 rooms, this hotel is run by the third generation of the original family who have expanded the hotel to 94 rooms.
