This showstopping hotel has a lagoon pool with ocean views and a beach right on the doorstep.
With its contemporary décor, the Elba Carlota is certainly easy on the eye. And it’s got plenty to brag about beyond its looks, thanks to 2 pools, a good sports line-up, and a beach just outside.
Stay here and you’re just a 2-minute walk from the bars, restaurants and shops of Costa Caleta, one of Fuerteventura’s most popular holiday spots.

Lovely hotel, great staff, amazing food - cannot fault it!
We travelled as a family for 1 week holiday and could not have been more pleased with the hotel. There is a fantastic range of food, with something for everyone - children and adults alike. The animation team are great, especially those who work at the kids club - our kids were excited to attend every day and to go to the mini disco in the evening. The rooms are clean and have everything you need including tea & coffee making facilities and a fridge. The hotel is ideally placed only 20 mins from the Airport, right on the beach and around 1km from Caleta de Fuste.More
Although this hotel is very modern clean and welcoming, there is very little to do outside the hotel in the evenings.
We enjoyed our stay however, there were a few issues. We booked half board as we do like the freedom to explore the local surroundings without the need to get back to the hotel for lunches. As a half board guest, there is obviously a need to purchase drinks and snacks etc. but we found the no cash rule very inconvenient. We arrived at 22.30 after a delay with our flights and were desperate for some refreshment.We made straight to the bar, where we were told cash wasn't accepted and that we would have to return to reception to arrange an account.We did so with 50 Euros(Minimum opening charge) A credit card is accepted but there are no facilities available to enable you to use Debit cards. Reception finally explained all this after us making a further visit to obtain a white card loaded with our Euros. Phew! it was now 23.15, and that long awaited drink finally went down a treat.Our last day and we had to check out at midday.We had topped up our account card during our stay, but at checkout our account was closed. Our pick-up was scheduled for 18.15 on that evening. Unable to spend our last hours at the hotel/pool due to lack of funds, we were forced to go into town (a taxi ride away) in order to eat. I estimate we would have spent money during those final hours,profit the hotel missed out on.We could not even buy water before we left. I wonder if staff are not trusted to handle cash. We have stayed in many hotels over the years and have never come across this strange set up regarding holiday spending More

A great place to stay !More
we arrived home yesterday from the Carlota we sent an E-Mail 2 Months ago to ask if we could have a room on a high floor we were given room 546 & what a room it was fantastic & so much than we could have wished for. As usual the staff were all Excellent the Food is second to none & the entertainment were great especially Rock&Soul. This is without doubt the best hotel we have ever stayed at & we can't wait to return in January. We did consider trying another hotel but when this one is so good why change. Many thanks for looking after us so well again see you soon.More
Amazing Family Holiday
We just returned from a one week all inclusive holiday at the Elba Carlotta, this was our first time taking our 6 year old daughter abroad and we shall be booking this again for sure. From the moment we arrived we were so pleased with how clean and shiny the hotel was, being greeted with Cava straight away was a big plus also. Our little girl was really nervous about trying the kids club but after the first time she couldn't wait to go back again and again. She especially liked Mindy who was amazing with her and Jade was great also. This hotel is great for the adults to be able to relax as well as the children enjoy in a safe environment, the mini disco in the evenings was very good and we enjoyed watching whilst drinking some fantastic cocktails (the best I have ever had on all inclusive). Waking up on my first morning I got up early to put the towels out, I know a few people have complained about this but I haven't been to a hotel yet that you don't have to so didn't find it a problem. Getting up about 7am to reserve 5 sun beds for our family worked well, was able to get in the restaurant each morning around 7:30 to have a few coffees before breakfast, the cooked breakfasts don't start till 8am but still plenty of other lovely food on offer. I must mention the fresh juices for breakfast which we all loved as well as the option of Cava with your breakfast which was a lovely bit of luxury. I found all the staff very friendly and some great characters who were very funny. Our cleaner dressed my daughters teddy bear a couple of times and left sweets which was a lovely touch and she was over the moon by this. Our room was very clean and the beds were so comfortable, we had a slight leak in our shower which we did ask to be looked at, it wasn't in the end but to be fair we didn't ask again and as the standards were so good in all the other areas it wasn't a big deal. We were booked for one night at the Italian a la carte restaurant which was really lovely, really good starters, a great menu with good choices for both adults and children. On our first day by the pool we tried out a few of the cocktails and loved the sangria as well as the frozen cocktails, we really were amazed in Regards to choice and again the service, we never waited longer than a couple of minutes for a drink during the day, little bit longer at night but again the bar staff were so friendly we really didn't mind. I would also like to mention about the flys as I had seen a lot of reviews on here before we came about a problem with flys which had me worried, yes there are a few flys when you sit outside at the restaurant but for a hot country and with food about its to be expected, there really wasn't many and I never noticed them by the pool. We were very lucky with weather, cloudy quite a few mornings but the sun always came through by early afternoon, don't be fooled by the cloud though as we still got burnt. It's very windy but actually is quite nice as doesn't feel so hot, after a week I managed to come home with the best tan I have ever had and I have very olive skin anyway.All in all this was an incredible holiday and we shall be returning for 2 weeks next time as we now know there is enough entertainment to keep our daughter happy as well as lots of different foods and drinks to try. The beach is right opposite and to change it up I would recommend the bar by the sea as again the service is great and you have a fabulous view of the ocean. Thank you once again to everyone at Elba Carlotta, keep up the good work and we look forward to seeing you in 2019.More
