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 with good facilities, a couple of swimming pools with plenty of sunbeds, spotlessly clean, very helpful and friendly staff. Beware though the all inclusive finishes at 11pm! And isn't 24hrs. Generally to sum up, great for a family holiday and would recommend it. More
We have just had a week in peak season, the best all inclusive we've had, food fantastic, relaxing round the pool, loved the 4 poster Sun beds, great entertainment. Lovely touch champagne in the room for my birthday :) helpful friendly staff, looking to book up already for next year. Nice to meet people who had been there before too xxxMore
The hotel is set a little away from the small village, either a 15 min stroll or a short 2 mins taxi ride (3 Â£ Euro). Lovely pool area, although the lack of sunbed/ shade needs addressing, we needed to be up at 7am in order to secure a bed and often this was too late. There is a small shopping mall right next door to the Carlota with all holiday essentials. Staff were very helpful but a little thin on the ground. Activities around the pool were excellent, there was something for everyone. Lovely breezes kept us cool and once in the pool it was lovely. Would recommend to families with small children.More
Have just returned from a week (27th July until 3rd august) at the Elba Carlota with my friend and my 7 and 9 year old. I can not recommend this hotel enough. Check in was easy and quick and the hotel was on first impressions and continued to look clean and modern. The lifts were well maintained up to the rooms and our junior suite 457 was large with ample room for 4 of us. The living room had a bed for my friend and the bedroom had a huge double bed plus a single bed for the kids to argue over. The bathroom was superb and views over the pools and sea from balconies (has two) was perfect. All staff at the hotel are hard working and friendly and all very helpful. Animation team fantastic as was the entertainment at night. My children chose not to join the club but from what we saw they did a lot with the children and they were well cared for. The food is amazing and I don't understand how anyone can complain about it. Each serving has a huge variety and my 9 year old ate her own body weight in puddings over the week. There is not a problem with flies at this hotel. There was randomly one fly who took a liking to the suncream but they were no way an issue. The pools and pool area are excellent and the staff at poolside are always picking up blown away cups (it is quite windy). The beach just outside the hotel is amazing and we spent 2 days there. It is â¬3.50 for a sunbed and the same for a parasol. Web were there at 9.30am and had the pick of the parasols. The sea is very safe thanks to the man built sea wall creating a cove. Spar is 2 minute walk to the right from then back gate and touristy shops 10 minutes down the prom to the left. Lovely harbour and more sand 10 minutes more. Walking is not an issue as the wind is always there and it doesn't feel too hot on the coast. Feels hotter at the front of the hotel. You do need to get up early if you want a parasol. We had a shock the drst morming but after that we joined in the reserving (rightly or wrongly but we gad two pale kids). Always sunbeds available any time of day. We had an amazing time and I will be coming back on my own with my children as I feel this hotel is safe and friendly enough for myself as a single mother. I have stayed at a 5* hotel in Lanzarote and everything about this hotel was just as good. Thank you for all your hard work making people's holidays so perfect. More
Nice hotel with a lot of different activities to do. Really friendly and helpful staff. On the first day my wife and I were greeted by a Portuguese receptionist, Fabio, who was really nice and attentive. On some other day we had a little problem with a tour we had scheduled and another receptionist, Gabriel, was really kind looking after that issue on the phone, explaining the situation to the company and giving is constantly feedback. Also Oliver and Leticia really kind and thoughtful all the time. Even on constant pressure from customers coming at the desk all the time and just two of them they look after everyone on a really professional and collaborative way. We got the half board so we had the opportunity to enjoy a great breakfast everyday, loads of options of cereals, bread, fruits, fleshly squeezed juices and all kinds of options. Somedays we had lunch there and somedays dinner, and besides there were loads of options everyday (they have different menus for each day of the week, for mains and desserts), sometimes the food did not look so good and from I could see was because of the guests messing the place and the staff running from one place to around to make the restaurant work out, it seems that they would need a few extra hands to keep the place tidy and presentable all the time while serving, staff looked under pressure and that could be avoided. (I love ice cream and there was that option everyday, sadly most of the days guests opened the freezer and left that open but that's to do with guest education and not the hotel itself). Also another thing annoying it's related to the policy of keeping towels to save sunbeds, it can NOT be done and still loads of people wake up at 7am to extend 12 towels for their whole family to stay together for two hours of the day, loads of sun beds being used by towels, hotel could be more strict with that and remove towels unsupervised. They are strict to the clothes on dinner, I could not have dinner using a tank top and had to change for a shirt in order to eat, that attention could be directed to the towels in the pool. Location was excellent for me. We rented a car for two days from the 7 we were there and we saw most of the island and the beaches, center of Caleta it's a 20 min walk from the hotel thorough a sidewalk along the beach, there's also a eurospar inside Atlantico shopping which is besides the hotel. You have access to the beach from the hotel as well. I would definitely recommend it, the problems I pointed out are easy to solve and the experience, treatment and structure that they have is great, will definitely go back there if I go again to Fuerteventura. There's a few photos on and being posted on my Instagram account, any questions that I can help I would be glad to try to help through there. Instagram @growinsight Fabio MadeiraMore
