Hotel Elba Carlota

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.

Very 3*+ hotel

My friend & l stayed at this hotel for a 10 holiday. We were apprehensive about this hotel as we normally stay in 4* or 5* hotels. Our travel agent assured us we wouldn't be disappointed & explained it was a no frills hotel hence the 3* rating. If it had air conditioning & comfortable seating lounge it may be rated as 4* We took a chance & were very pleasantly surprised at the standard of room, cleanliness, quality of food, friendly hardworking staff. Good location.More

Just a large All Inclusive palace, fine for families, plenty on offer. We took half board and stayed in a suite, the room was excellent, but what a trek to the dining to the food, well presented but suspect only a small percentage is prepared in the Cocina. Found everything that's supposed to be hot was COLD or Luke warm at best. Why not at least provide a microwave for those that appreciate hot food, Geranios does this,as same, food too cool. Will be heading for the smallest in Caleta next time and eating out.More

chris b,

Food quality and variety excellent! Made up for our two weeks in Mexico in February where the food was served cold

Stayed in a room on 4th floor overlooking the pool. Very comfortable bed and balcony to sit out on when not engaged in the plentiful activities organised by the FRAM team. Considering another week in October which says something as we have never previously returned to a destination when there are so many other places to visit around the world.More

Great Winter Holiday at the Elba Carlota

We have experienced many package holidays over the last 40 years of married life. I am 64 years old and my wife 59. On holiday we enjoy to relax on the sun beds, play a little golf (if available), walking, eating, drinking, spending time in the local resort shops and occasionally try the resort day trips to places of interest. We spent 7 days in April 2016 at the Elba Carlota in Caleta de Fuste – all-inclusive with First Choice. The food was excellent with plenty of variety. The staff were all very pleasant and professional and their care for us made our stay at the Carlota even more enjoyable. The pool area was very well laid out with plenty of sun beds and areas to relax in. Sun bed towels were available from the reception. Gardens were very neat and tidy at the bottom of which was a gate to take us straight onto an excellent beach and promenade. The promenade was flat and a 20 minute walk would take you into the main Caleta Resort. The Animation team entertained us all one evening with songs from our famous musical shows. It was very good and the time and effort they must have put into the show was a credit to them. Yes, it was excellent. The Resort of Caleta de Fuste – well it is what it is. At this time of the year, in our opinion, it is a great retreat from our English weather and a welcome opportunity to take in the sun. It is not picturesque, but then we don’t expect it to be. The weather was excellent and averaged about 23c. There is a wind which was most welcome but be careful as it still burns so plenty of sun cream. The Elba Carlota is one of 3 Hotels located on the southern end of the resort along with a small shopping centre. All three are part of the same Hotel Group. The Elba Sara, Elba Carlota and the Sheraton Hotel. Now then, one night, we had a peep at the other two. Our opinion was that we had picked the best Hotel for our type of holiday – Elba Carlota. In our opinion the Sheraton appeared to be huge and the Elba Sara a little tired. We were happy with our choice. I had a look at the Fuerteventura Golf Club which is based at the Elba Palace Hotel. Now then, the course is just across the road from the Elba Carlota but the clubhouse and the Hotel is situated at the top of the course and is a good 20 minute walk and too far to walk with your golf bag. However, there is a big plus here – there is a FREE courtesy coach that does a circuit of the Hotels and the resort throughout the day. Five minute bus ride to the golf club or range – brilliant with the departure times available from the reception desk. There are reduced green fees for Elba Hotel Group guests. I paid 45 euro for 18 holes but I understand the winter rates for October – mid April were 65 euro for 18 holes. I play off a handicap of 14 and found the course to be excellent and the outside driving range was a real pleasure. Flat course as well with just one uphill pull on the 17th but the bar is getting closer. Two good practice areas for chipping and putting where I spent a few hours in the sun – sheer bliss from the rain and cold back home. There is also a golf course next door, Salinas GC, but I did not play it – the green fees were far more expensive but the reviews were good. (I really do find it hard to pay more than say £35 for a game of golf). We shall be returning early next year to escape our English Winter.More


Service WIth A Smile!!!!!

Just returned from a wonderful week at this hotel. After a lovely welcome at reception we went to our junior suite room363 which was spacious and nicely finished. Room was cleaned daily with no issues with towels shampoos or tea and coffee making being replenished. The restaurant staff were polite helpful and eager to please. The food was superb (we have a lot of experience with all inclusive) and this ranks very high. Choices were good and a daily theme included delights such as sushi, fresh tuna in soy Mexican fajitas and lamb cooked Moroccan style (melted in the mouth) and fabulous duck with a tangerine sauce. Previous reviews stated the food was similar daily.. all I could say was look at all the dishes available!!!! The pool area is nice clean and there are plenty of sun beds! Bearing in mind this was April. It may be busier in high season. Pool was heated and we swam daily. The entertainment staff work very hard and are not intrusive but they are fun! We played boules one afternoon and watched the evening shows. As with most of these teams a lot of effort is made to entertain and they certainly did. Credit to Thomas and to Julien. The grounds are lovely and open on to the beach area at the back. There is a nice shopping mall next door with some super little shops and a huge spar. Finally the bar staff were funny slick and happy! The main bar busy at night but they worked very hard to keep everyone served and the cocktails were OK . Overall we were delighted with our week. This hotel ticks a lot of boxes and I stayed with my husband and son who agreed that we would definitely return.More
