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.

Amazing food, great atmosphere, shame about one member of staff!

We stayed at the Elba Carlota in October and had a wonderful time! The food was excellent and the hotel was so clean and lovely. The only downside was there were quite a few large groups who were so ridiculously noisy, but this isn't the hotels fault. Also, there is a female member of staff who "greets" people as they come into the restaurant. Half of the time she was on her phone and didn't even realise we'd walked in. On one occasion my partner discovered that the chicken he'd chosen wasn't properly cooked. He didn't want to make a scene so quietly took it to the chef to tell him who then told him to speak to the lady stood at the door. When he explained what was wrong (he didn't want other people to eat it and get ill) she just shrugged her shoulders and completely ignored him. Also, when we left the restaurant that night she would not speak to us and glared at my partner. We were shocked! She seems to have the easiest job in the whole place, all of the other staff are running around working so hard yet this girl stands on her phone behind her desk yawning and leaning on her arm. We were not impressed at all. Manners cost nothing. Other than her rudeness, our trip was great. We will definitely be back and 100% will recommend to friends!More

Brilliant Family Holiday

We recently enjoyed a 10 night family holiday at the Carlota. This was our 3rd year in this resort but our first visit to this hotel - we have stayed in its sister hotel the Elba Sara for the last two years. We had requested a 5th floor room at the end of a corridor and that's exactly what we got. The room was lovely and bright and clean! I can't fault either the hotel or most of the staff - there was one member of the dining room staff who was particularly unfriendly and unapproachable and I personally think that the Customer Service industry is perhaps not the career for her! However I would recommend this hotel to anyone, old and young alike! The animation team were brilliant! The bar staff were both friendly and efficient! We had NO problems getting served drinks in the dining room. A big part of our holiday is the food, we eat very healthy all year and look forward to NOT calorie counting of 'fat' watching and were delighted that we always found a very good and varied choice. I did hear some complain but to be honest, sometimes people just complain for the sake of it, if you want 'British' food, stay at home!! The Paella was to die for!! My only gripe is that we have had a Fidelity Card for 3 years and this has been of absolutely NO use to us and has got us no benefits whatsover but it does state on the Terms & Conditions that all the benefits are 'subject to availability' - unfortunately at the times we have visited either of the Elba hotels, obviously NO benefits have been available!! That said, it in no way detracted for what was a VERY relaxing and enjoyable holiday!! Thank you Elba Carlota - this was just what we needed! xxMore

Girls holiday - Chiwawa

I holidayed with 4 girlfriends last week and we loved the hotel and the location. The weather was hot and sunny almost every day, just a couple of cloudy days when we first arrived. Evenings were still warm. The best things about the hotel were: FOOD - good quality, plenty of choice with theme nights, e.g. Mexican, Italian, Spanish, waiter service very good, always found us a table, the wine was brought to us by the bottle as opposed to out of a tap, lovely outside area to eat; LOCATION - short walkway through the hotel grounds, through a gate and you were on the beach, literally a 5 minute walk, the beach was small but beautiful and peaceful, water was clear with fish swimming even in shallow water, small beach side bars and restaurants around 10 minute walk away. Town with more bars and restaurants were only a 5 minute taxi ride away which cost 3 euros; POOL AREA - plenty of sun beds available and lots of room by the pool with sun on the area most of the day, 2 adult pools and one children's pool area, also an adult only area for sunbathing, ROOMS - spacious and modern and clean, we had a balcony that over looked the beach and our friends had a poolside balcony. ANIMATION TEAM - great fun with lots of activities throughout the day including Aqua Gym, special mention to Christopher who made us laugh and had us up dancing in the evening - Chiwawa! The resort very family focused which is nice and felt safe. We would go back to this hotel. The only things they could improve upon was to make more of the Sinatra Bar, e.g. music throughout the evening rather than just half an hour at the end of the night and extending the All Inclusive drinks from 11pm to 12 midnight finish, also having the Animation Team entertainment in this bar rather than in the Conference Centre. The Conference Centre lacked atmosphere because it was so large. Also, sometimes we were waiting a while for drinks to be served at the main bar as there was only ever one waiter on the bar and he was rushed off his feet, therefore, I think they need to invest in more bar staff. Overall though a very enjoyable week.More

Fantastic hotel

Everything about this hotel was fantastic from the delicious all inclusive food menus, the huge pools and perfect stretch of beach situated just moments from the hotel grounds. Those who are worried about the lack of variety when booking all inclusive need not worry as they vary their menu daily. Some of the meats/fish were the best I've tasted. You won't regret booking at this hotel.More

Steve W,

Excellent! Can't wait to go again!!

We arrived to beautiful weather jumped in a taxi to save hours traveling from resort to resort on the coach, hotel only 15 minutes from the airport and only cost 13 euros. On arrival we were greated by very helpful reception staff, we arrived about 12:30 and as you can't book in until 15:00hrs we placed our luggage in the safe store room, got changed into and walked over to the bar in the sea for a jug or 3 of sangria! Once booked in we were upgraded to one of the senior suites - (get yourself an Elba Fidelity Card before going). The room was immaculate, lounge, dining area, massive bed, lots of storage space, an equally amazing bathroom with shower, huge jacuzzi bath, double sinks luxury. The balcony in the lounge and sliding doors in bedroom opened up onto a full sea view. Everywhere was spotlessly clean. Dining was a wonderful experience (all inclusive) spoilt for choice, so many options and all cooked to perfection, great salad section and lots of desserts, took us back to our childhood with Jelly and 3 or 4 choices of icecream with toppings! The pool area again is spotless, there was an issue with the sunloungers though, the hotel has a strict policy of no "reserving" loungers but no one policed this and every day was the same, people out there at 7.30/8am with towels at the ready then disappearing off for hours after hogging the parasols. This was very frustrating as those who abided by the rules lost out every time. For me I am disabled and although both pools have disabled access, the end pool was better for me as the steps sloped into the pool with a handrail but trying to get a sunlounger there was near impossible due to the lounger hogs. The entertainment team were brilliant, no pressure or hassle through the day unlike some resorts, very entertaining team, the nighttime shows were fun, the team work really hard to keep everyone happy. If I had to find a negative comment it would be the very minimal alcohol in the cocktails so we stuck to wine and vodka :o) All in all we had a fantastic holiday and wish we'd booked 2 weeks! We have already planned to return as soon as possible.More
