Expert review of Fowlers Hotel
When Fowlers started out they had one thing in mind: to retain a piece of old Cala d’Or and offer an alternative to the chain hotels and apartment blocks that had sprung up. The owner’s eclectic tastes and more-is-more approach verges on the theatrical, resulting in a small hotel overflowing with personality.
Situated in the higher, more residential part of town, but still walking distance from the beaches, shops, bars and restaurants of Cala d’Or.
All eight rooms have a view of some kind, be it garden or sea, and four of the rooms have balconies to sit out on. There is one ‘mini-suite’ meaning small, and one self-catering studio. Décor in the bedrooms is a little more understated than the rest of the house with homey touches like tea- and coffee-making facilities, simple linens and lots of light.
A grand piano in the bar gets frequent use by travelling musicians as well as locals who drop in to entertain, which adds to the spontaneous and theatrical appeal of the place. The covered terrace and pool patio, both rich in busts, flowers and other objets d’art, are great for a little downtime.
A substantial and excellent home-made breakfast is included in the price. There’s no restaurant.
Small plunge pool.
Think of it like staying with loveable, slightly eccentric friends, so don’t expect somebody to be about all the time. Breakfast isn’t served until 9am, and the bar doesn’t open until 7pm. If you’re reasonably self-sufficient, this relaxed approach is actually rather nice.
Mainly English guests, and many repeat customers.
Some good deals to be had especially out of season - such as throwing in a hire car for free, or transfer to and from the airport.
