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.

Fun for all the family in Fuerteventura. Fab hotel, Fantastic Staff
We stayed for two weeks from the end of October to early November 2016 and had an amazing time. Arriving the day after some of the worst storms the island has seen in recent years meant it was at a particularly difficult period for the staff. As a result of the storms there were flooded areas, leaks and lifts out of order. For a wheelchair user like myself this was a significant issue. However the staff were all superb and found ways to overcome this problem. I'd contacted the hotel before our arrival to let them know that I was disabled and in addition to my wheelchair I was hiring a mobility scooter for the duration of our stay. We'd booked a suite as it was for me, my wife and our 3 year old daughter and the hotel had taken it upon themselves to upgrade us to a superior suite to give more room for my mobility aids and to keep the scooter on charge when not in use. The first few days I was allowed to use the service lift (we were on floor 5) and although a minor inconvenience the staff were so helpful, apologetic and accommodating to the extent of carrying all our luggage up to the room whilst showing my wife and I how to access the staff lift. We were all inclusive and were not disappointed, every meal there was so much choice for us all (we were a party of 7 in total as our 19year old son and his girlfriend and my parents joined us). There was always something for all of us, fresh smoothies for breakfast, full English, cereals, Pastries, Fruit, Yoghurt, Bread you name it and it was there. Lunch was salad, cold meats, cheeses, a selection of chips, other types of potatoes and dinner each night was a different theme. Not only was there starters, mains and more desserts than I've ever eaten in my life the staff in the restaurant cooking, serving and getting drinks were lovely. It was Halloween when we stayed and they decorated and dressed up and made the night extra special. No complaints whatsoever over the food. Each night the staff put together a table for us all in the section reserved for disabled people (a lovely thing to see, although as is often the case people ignored the signs, but the staff did politely challenge them when they noticed). They all spoke numerous languages and made a fuss of our 3 year old. There was a casino that our son enjoyed visiting late at night and thoroughly enjoyed this adult entertainment part of the hotel. For us our entertainment consisted of the kids disco each night, and there were some amazing songs and dances that we learnt. I only wish that they were available on a CD to purchase. The entertainment staff were all funny, Pepe the caterpillar a hit with the kids and so many activities on throughout the day. Shooting, Archery, Darts, Quizzes, Cocktail Making the list was endless and all part of the all inclusive package. There was a games room with pool and table football and arcades all at 1 euro each and this was open daily 10-10. The hotel gardens exited onto the promenade and there were the golden sandy beaches. This really was a brilliant hotel in the perfect location. The pool areas (3 pools) had plenty of sun lounges and even though some chose to ignore the do not put your towels down signs there were always enough for us. The children's pool was warm and everyone enjoyed themselves. Yes there were a few hiccups (like the lifts) but the staff did everything within their power to help and really were brilliant. We loved our room and sea view and would return tomorrow if we could. The room was massive with balcony, lounge area with flatscreen TV and mini fridge, tea and coffee facilities in the bedroom (replenished daily) along with an even bigger TV (with several channels in a variety of languages) a huge spa bath and separate massive shower both big enough for 2 ;-) two sinks and toilet and bidet. Towels were replaced a few times during our stay and the rooms were always clean. Bedding was replaced a few times too (once one of our daughters teddy bears got caught up in the bed when it was stripped, we thought it was the end of bunny but having reported it to the hotel 2 days later a much cleaner bear had been found. Being a wheelchair user access is very important to me, the hotel, lifts, corridors, pool areas, restaurant you name it and it was all accessible I actually commented that it put many places in the UK I've visited to shame. The icing on the cake was the resident photographer who was taking photos throughout the stay and offered excellent value for money on purchasing quality prints that are brilliant permanent keepsakes.More
Holiday of a Life Time
This was my first visit to Fuerteventura and not only was I looking forward to the sun, sea and sand I would be celebrating my birthday there. Once I had arrived at the hotel there were drinks available for all the guests. First impressions do count. Check in was quick and very straight forward and I was provided with the necessary paperwork about the hotel, services, amenities and so forth. I was very impressed with the room that was allocated to me which was on the 4th floor. My room was neat, clean and roomy with a reasonable size desk, small table and amenities on hand. The bathroom was also clean and spacious. There was a balcony as well. What a view. The hotel had first class facilities and services which included a gym, sauna and casino. There were two adult pools and a children's pool. There was a main restaurant, Italian restaurant and bar. The food that was provided were well presented and there was a wide range that was on offer which included vegetarian meals. I am pretty fussy when it comes to food being cooked well and I could not fault them at all. Entertainment (i.e. classes) during the week was also included such as spanish, archery, aqua, yoga to name but a few so there was something for everyone if you wished to partake. The sessions were short. During the evenings there were light entertainment for the adults. I was taken aback when I saw the casino. From what I had seen there were a number of guests enjoying themselves. The location is ideal, transport is very good; taxis, buses and coaches are available if you wish to do some sightseeing, shopping or go on an excursion. The town is close by roughly 20/25 minutes walk from the hotel via reception. There are restaurants, cafes, shops, boutiques, supermarkets. From the rear of the hotel you can take a leisurely walk along the promenade to the marina/harbour. If you are a keen golfer or enthusiast there is a golf course near by. I had the opportunity to see the salt museum; the exhibits were wonderful and I learnt a lot about the history, properties, components, facts and myths. This is a good walk maybe 40 -45 minutes from the hotel. If you prefer not to walk the fare/s for a taxi is reasonable. The only criticisms is that two of the evenings I had dedicated to reading a novel I found it difficult to do so as there was live entertainment at a nearby hotel. This will need to be addressed as a matter of priority; as a suggestion you should have a service level of agreement between the hotels as to the timings; level of noise and the guests that are being affected should be notified of this beforehand. Secondly one of the lifts was no working and although I was more than happy to walk up and down the stairs not all the guests are all mobile. Overall it was a lovely week's holiday and I cannot wait to return. Highly recommended for singleton's, couple's or families.More
Relaxing week in the sun
Enjoyed a lovely restful week with family, Hotel is clean, larger pool very cold during our visit, but the hotel offers a smaller pool which was OK, as well as a children's pool and outdoor Jacuzzi. Good selection of food choices. Beach outside the hotel was closed as building work is ongoing. Takes about 20 minutes to stroll to the nearby Fuste. Closer is a small shopping Mall with a spar shop and also has a cinema and bowling alley.More
Poor entertainment & poor options for vegetarians.
This was our first visit to the Canary Island and my husband booked a week away as surprise for my 30th Birthday. Upon arrival I was quite happy with the welcome, but unfortunately it went downhill from there really. My husband paid extra for a sea view room and was offered a room where we literally could not sea anything except trees from the balcony. We were then offered a room (which i believe was possibly the last available) a pool view room. We settled with this, but I was quite annoyed considering my husband specifically paid extra for this. The vegetarian options was quite poor really, there pretty much wasn't many options available for us. Items were not labelled appropriately, items which suggested was vegetarian was not. An example of this was a item was labelled as egg plant with a vegetarian sign which later transpired to be sausage. This had happened a couple of times and this was very disappointing, we mentioned it to the staff there including the catering manager as well as the lady at reception. We were told they would ensure it did not happen again but unfortunately this was not the case. We literally had to double check everything and ask the cooks all the time to ensure the items we were eating was suitable. Another issue with the catering was breakfast. They use the same utensils to cook the eggs/sandwiches/pancakes etc there was not a vegetarian option. if you had a really bad allergy I wouldn't feel comfortable eating there at all. Also all dessert were not labelled at all. So non look veg friendly. The entertainment was poor. Not enough space to sit if it was in the lobby bar. Honestly, go to another hotel. I was very disappointed considering how much we paid. The pool was freezing and was disappointing that it did not have a heated pool. on the plus side there was a nice British restaurant near by called Ocean View amazing food and brilliant service. Eat there.More
