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.

Can't wait to return!
Stayed here a few years ago. After an amazing time we are returning with our one year old daughter who I'm sure will have a fantastic time! Hotel was brilliant, food was great and we had a brilliant room. Please ignore all of the bad reviews, we have never returned to a hotel before but can't wait to take our little girl back here!More

I cannot understand some of the negative reviews...this is one of the best hotels I have stayed in on a package holiday. My party of 4 adults stayed for 10 nights early July and did not have any complaints, we have stayed in many hotels in the Canaries and the Balearics mainly and the Elba stands out as one of the best yet. This is the first holiday where we did not feel the need to reseve our sun loungers early in the morning, we NEVER did so and no matter what time we went poolside we always found 4 loungers together and always saw spare ones available...maybe we were just lucky!! Also we never had any trouble finding a suitable table for lunch or dinner, yes it may be handy to have the same table allocated for duration of holiday but do you really want to sit at the same table for the whole holiday...I know I wouldnt want to. However for larger groups it would be a good idea to be able to reserve tables. Yes we sometimes waited around 5 mins for drinks (the bar staff are very busy) but again not a huge problem ...relax whats the hurry you're on holiday the bar staff are very entertaining as well as busy! Good points for me were 1...Food... always great choice... different food every night if you take the time to check and see whats on offer. I'm practically vegetarian and always found lots to suit me. One in my party is a Pasta/Pizza lover so had no probs as this was always available. Other 2 party members love fish and meat and always found different ones to sample and thouroughly enjoyed. 2....Comfy seats in all the bars. 3...Amazing entertainment team, with the odd professional show every 3rd night approx. Yes they mime but the energy and enthusiasm was outstanding, a real credit to team leader Gennaro. I thought they were all professionally trained dancers but apparently not. Don't miss Music is the Future show...BRILLIANT. They work hard day and night, daytime entertainment great too and no pressure to join in, all the team very friendly whether you join in or not ( we tend not to apart from aqua gym which we enjoyed.) 4...LOCATION on gorgeous beach and pleasant breezy walk to town and you must have a walk over to the little island bar to feed the fish or just take in the lovely views. Only negatives for me (had to think hard to find any really!!!) Pool area could have been slightly cleaner but was by no means dirty. Small drinks tables could be provided when entertainment is on in the Convention Centre. We hope to return at some point....PLEASE DO NOT LET any negative reviews put you off unless you are extremely fussy....I booked in Feb and worried about the negative reviews but I loved the Elba Carlota there was no need to worry at all in my opinion.More

We was there for 7nights. Fantastic time specialy for my 3year old son. Food fantastic buffet, good location nearest to shopping center. A lot of activity for all family. 3 nice swiming pools acces to the beach. More
Stayed for fortnight....reception welcoming and helpful. Room really clean and modern with air con and flat screen tv. Although not many british channels but we didnt mind. Never had an issue at the bars and found Pena always cheery and polite. I really do hope management are aware of how good he is with guests. Food was nice enough although a little repetitive. We ate out some nights to have the food served to us. We found the hotel to be very clean. Great beach out back. It is a windy island but I think the breeze is so helpful when really warm. I would suggest management have no sunbed policy in place...no point when not enforced. Shame some nationalities are very rude....many a night I stood in queue for food to have someone barge in front. I really enjoy this island and resort...this was our second visit and will defo be back for a third and may even return to elba. Hopefully next time we could get an upgrade with our fidelity card!! Although we got engaged this holiday so next one has alot too live upto. More
Great family location
We have just returned from a 10 night all inclusive family holiday travelling with 5 children under 13 and consisting of a party of 10. The family rooms were fantastic very spacious and allowed the adults privacy although worth paying extra for a pool or sea view as we overlooked a shopping centre and could hear and see all the food deliveries. The children loved the choice of 3 pools and the games room was also a plus side. The kids club is fantastic and the staff are very friendly although it's a shame the children's discos didn't go on for longer and also involve English dances/songs. Pepi and Eipo were fantastic and loved by my 2 youngest. Lots of people complained about lack of sunbeds and people reserving them but it's the same in most holiday places. More sunbeds could be made available to ease this problem. I do feel that fresh lunch time snacks could be an advantage if families prefer to not have such a formal lunch. There were burgers/pizza/hotdogs and chips that were kept warm thought the day but not made fresh to order. Unfortunately tables could not be reserved in the restaurant which made it difficult when travelling in such a large party and all wanting to sit together. It would be better if each room was allocated their own table. We did ask to reserve a table on an evening but we're told we could not do this. Choice of food was good including children's food but did become repetitive after 10 days. More staff are required in the restaurant and serving on the bars given the volume of visitors at the hotel which would avoid conflict between different nationalities trying to get served. Reception staff were always on hand to deal with any problems. Great beach location and no problems if you need to go back to the hotel for drinks. The market which was on sat and Tuesday was good for your fake designer handbags, watches etc. It's was also handy having a spar shop near by and they did the best doughnuts for 1 euro :) The boys also enjoyed the activities throughout the day the football being the big favourite. If you walk along the sea front you get to a square with tourist shops and bars and also camel rides on the beach front . The cocktail bar upstairs was good and a wide range of cocktails and drinks available for both adults and children. The chocolate milk shakes and blue lemonade were very popular and the bar staff were friendly and welcoming and always had a smile. Overall very happy with the holiday all had a great time the hotel was clean and tidy and met some fantastic families whilst there. Only a few minor small points but if rectified would only improve the hotel. Would definitely recommend this hotel for a excellent family holiday and being 30 minutes from the airport was a bonus for us.More
