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.

We had booked a Junior Suite in the Elba Sara Hotel, but on arrival we were offered alternative accommodation in the Elba Carlota with an upgrade from half board to all inclusive. The upgrade wa excellent as we were able to take advantage of the free drinks etc. Our room was excellent with a beautiful view over the seaMore
I have just returned from this hotel after a two week vacation with my father who has very little mobility and is confined full time to a wheel chair and my brother and sister-in-law. We had the most wonderful time. If you just want to go to a hotel, enjoy what it has to offer and not look for all those silly niggly little problems that some of the pinickity hotel inspectors (other very fussy holiday makers) have highlighted then this is the place for you. Everyone of the staff from the cleaners, to the bar staff, to the restaurant staff, to the amazing animation team and even to the new assistant manager make this hotel a great place to be. Everyone smiles and says hello, the animation team lark around all day and evening long keeping you entertained. Any problems you may encounter, all you have to do is go to or phone reception and ask and it is fixed. Including the beetle I found in my bedroom at 1am one morning. Up came the security night watch man within five minutes to sort it out and get rid of the thing for me.... The food is typical of a Spanish hotel, plentiful, tasty and I defy anyone not to find something to eat. If it is slightly cold then there is a microwave but to be honest if it is just go get some fresh as food is being cooked all the time and replaced. The tables are cleared quickly and the restaurant staff are always there in few minutes to take drink orders. The pool area is large with plenty of sun beds and the cafe has food and drinks available all day. A few people have commented that the spirits are watered down. We realised that in fact the local brands on the all inclusive deal are much lower in alcohol and in fact are only 25% proof and not the 35 to 40% that we are used to so it tastes much weaker. The small plastic cups are only served around the pool for health and safety reasons and large glasses are available all day and night long in the inside bars. As for wheelchair users this hotel has large accessible rooms with large bathrooms and roll in showers (slight lip but nothing terrible) The bathrooms could have done with a couple more bars in more strategic places around the shower and possible fold down ones a little higher than the fixed ones round the toilet but my dad was able to manage with a little help. The mobility equipment we had ordered for his room was waiting at reception for us and his actual room was large enough to do full turns in the chair without any problems at all. All our bedrooms were well equipped and clean. If I was to point one thing out it would be that we were so laden down when we arrived it would have been good to have had a porter to help. We were told that if we waited a few moments someone would be found to come and help us but in the end we managed by using the luggage trolley piled high and wheeling everything else including my dad..... So even then they were trying to help us as much as possible. The position of the hotel as others has said is great, twenty minutes walk to the town centre, Shopping mall next door, beach out the back door, beautiful gardens to walk around, and a casino to go to after the crazy evening entertainment if you want something else to do..... If leaving after the 12pm check out a courtesy room is available to be booked the day before departure.More

I chose this hotel based on the good reviews from trip advisor. The room was very clean and spacious, had a great nights sleep on a very comfortable bed. In the room was a bottle of cava and plate of fruit! I was in room 222 which is on the same floor as reception and had a sea view, well above the Palm trees! There is a fridge in the room which was very welcome. Large tv but limited channels. Bbc news on 31 not much of a selection true ent with waltons/happy days etc. Nice balcony although not large it was private. Rooms were cleaned every day with new towels and linen changed on the fourth day. There is safe which I used at a rental of 3 euros a day I feel that this should be included in the price. Tea/coffee with kettle which is topped up everyday. My suggestion at breakfast is to fill a bottle with milk and keep in the fridge. A great bonus was air conditioning which was great as it got very hot. It is only on when you put your card in which puts on the lights etc but of course when you leave fridge and air con goes off! The main reason I chose this hotel was for the all inclusive, and the meals did not disappoint. Buffet meals with a huge selection: soup, cold meats, salad,pasta, chicken, pork, beef, variety of fish, veal, rabbit and goat! A great selection of bread and rolls. Of course my favourites is sweets and they did not disappoint! Everything from tiramisu, Swiss roll,chocolate roulade and ice cream!! They also had themed meals i.e. Mexican, Chinese etc Breakfast was great with a lovely cold buffet, cereals and made to order omelette, eggs,pancakes, sausages. At lunch and dinner you are served your drink i.e. wine, water, beer etc. Breakfast is at 8am -10.30 lunch 12.30-14.30 and dinner 18.30-20.30 out with these times u can get snacks at the pool bar. The outside area of the hotel is beautiful with two large pools separated by a waterfall and a large Jacuzzi. There is a smaller children's pool,children's play area, volleyball court. It has beautiful large garden area where there are sunbeds. You will need to put a towel on a sunbed as they are usually gone by 11. towels are for rent by a 10 Euro deposit which u get back they give u two stubs to change during your stay. The gardens lead out to the beach remember to take ur card as u will need it to get back in. The hotel is beside a nice shopping centre which a huge spar. The hotel is in a quiet area but it takes only 10 mins to get to the centre. On a tues/Sat there is a market well worth a visit. I used the local bus 3 to go to pureta del rosario which had a great shopping centre and is where the cruise liners arrive at the port. There is plenty of entertainment during the day and at night in the hotel. I would certainly recommend this hotel and hope to return xMore
An excellent week at the elba carlota
Have just returned from a really enjoyable week at this lovely hotel. Having read some of the reviews beforehand i have to say we were a little worried. Take no notice of the negativity. The hotel was fantastic. The staff were more than helpful. Pena and the guys on the bar were both entertaining and professional. The drinks were the typical all inclusive fayre. They liked to mix it up as well so dont be afraid to ask for something differant. The animation team were fantastic. They put a lot of effort into everything they did. Yes it was typical holiday entertainment but thats the point. It was entertaining. The food was excellent. Always hot, well varied and very tasty. The pools were great and no shortage of sun beds. The rooms were very clean, had plenty of space and came with tea and coffee making equipment which was topped up everyday and a small adequate fridge. If i was looking hard for the negatives i would say the flies around the pool side were a tad irratating and the dining room could have been better managed when busy. Apart from that all great And finally the resort. It has a nice shopping mall next door. Cheap pandora for the ladies.... About a 15 min walk the other way gets you to the resort centre. This has two areas. The first part is a newish modern area which has bars and upmarket shops. The second area is a long road which has the more traditional shops with ample bars and restaurants. All in all a great holiday experience at a great resort More
