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.

Could easily be an excellent hotel but ............

Just returned from a week at the Elba Carlota with my family and can honestly say that we have had a great time but there were a number of things that need attention. Firstly, be aware if you pay extra for a sea view room as the chances of actually getting a sea view are limited. These rooms are actually pool view rooms as they all face inwards and not towards the sea.Our first room actually faced slightly back towards the hotel and you had to lean over the balcony and look slightly backwards. The next room I was shown had no sea view to the side as the trees in the garden around the pool completely blocked the view. The hotel were still insistent that these were sea view rooms despite not actually being able to see the sea !!!!. We did finally get 1 of only 6 rooms that actually does face the sea but only lasted 24 hours in that room due to our lovely neighbours insisting on smoking in the room meaning our room also smelt like an astray. On complaining to the hotel, they advised the couple to stop doing it twice and then said `what else can we do`. Simple I replied, `kick them out`. Why should our holiday be ruined by selfish, inconsiderate low lives ? We moved room again but I would have hated to have been the next people in the room with neigbours like that. This is a general problem with the hotel as they favour smokers. The balcony for the bar on the first floor is a designated smoking area and there is a no non smoking area. If you wish to enjoy a drink outside, you will also have to suffer constant smoke. The same relates to the outside dining area, there is no area for non smokers so again you will have to suffer if you wish to dine outside. The other issues to be aware of are the rules and regulations of the hotel being blatantly broken and the hotel doing nothing about it, ie smoking around the children`s pool, children in the `adult only` jacuzzi, sunbeds being reserved with towels. All have clearly marked sings yet people are just allowed to carry on without a care. The beds are far too hard which I seen others mention and their idea of a double bed is pushing twin beds together. It can get very noisy around the main pool as at certain times, music gets played very loud indeed. It`s also shocking that you have to pay to use the safety deposit box in your room and also leave a deposit for beach towels. This is not what you would expect from atrue 4* hotel. Having said all of this, the hotel do have a lot going for it. The food was excellent and there are chefs constantly at work cooking fresh meat and fish. The waiting star were very attentive and getting drinks at meal times was no issue.Getting a drink at the main bar was sometimes an issue though due to a lack of staff. The grounds are well kept and tidy which make it an attractive hotel. The position is excellent with lots to do around an about and a lovely beach just outside the hotel. Our young son thoroughly enjoyed the children`s pool and there is plently of room for parents to sit around the pool comfortably. We would return as the facilities are so good for children, the location is excellent and the food very good. The hotel does though need to look at certain things and make inprovements and think about the majority and not the few and in particular, non smokers.More

Fab Hotel

Would definitely stay at the Elba again lovely hotel staff very friendly and carnt do enough for you.pool bar was great.We went all inclusive I think this is a must. Past the pool area open the gate and there is the beach which is a lovely sandy beach and very clean. Great walk along the front to Caleta De Fuse which took about 15 mins. Food is great plenty of choice. Great entertainment too. The only thing was the bed was so hard it took few sleepless nights to get used to it.,and only 10 mins from Airport it's probably quicker to take a taxi from Airport only few euros if your transfers rant included. Overall a great holiday.More

Really enjoyable stay, friendly staff, couldn't fault it!

We have just returned from a 3 night break at the Elba Carlota. We took the advice of many others and took a taxi from the airport - no wait, 10 minutes to the door and 13 euros. Upon arriving at the hotel we were told our room wouldn't be ready until 3pm, but we could check in straight away and make use of the all inclusive facilities. This was at 11.30am so no hanging around! We were told we had been upgraded to a suite which was a nice surprise, and the gentleman who checked us in was most helpful and explained everything in great detail. We were able to store our bags securely and told to check back after lunch in case the room was ready early, which it was. We were allocated room 437 - a suite which was superb. Only fault was the bed - we asked for a twin room but got a king sized double - decided to share as the rest of the room was so nice! The balcony was huge (see photo) and we had a great view. The bathroom was awesome - jacuzzi bath, walk-in shower and separate toilet cubicle. Complimentary robes and slippers were provided as well as plenty of bathroom bits such as shower gel, shaving kit, shower cap etc. The pool area was clean, and although the music was turned up during the various entertainment activities it wasn't too intrusive. There were plenty of sun loungers available throughout the day and we hired towels for a deposit of 10 euros which we had the option to change if needed. The pool bar was well stocked, a good selection of hot and cold drinks were on offer as well as snacks such as ice cream, cake, sandwiches, chips etc. We didn't see the evening's entertainment, preferring to stay in the Lobby Bar which was reasonably quiet. The drinks outside are served in plastic cups meaning plenty of trips for a refill, yet in the Lobby Bar we found good portion sizes and friendly and entertaining bar staff. We loved the food and didn't find it at all repetitive; we were only staying for 3 nights however, and I am a lover of The Buffet and eating little bits of everything, so it suited me! There was plenty of choice, once night was Chinese themed and we loved the cheese night as well as the Canarian themed foods and entertainment. The wine served is good and refilled as often as needed. Canarian Potatoes with Red Mojo Saice were great, various Spanish Omelettes were good and I enjoyed the German Potato Salad and Rice Bolognese! One thing I have to comment on is the staff - on the whole a very attentive bunch who interacted with everyone without being over familiar, always had a pleasant greeting and went over and above to ensure our stay was enjoyable. We did venture out of the hotel to the shopping centre, which has a small selection of shops. The beach is nice and clean and the fort close by makes for an interesting nosey about. I agree with some of the reviews on here regarding long trousers at dinner - some didn't observe this at all, a shame for those that had made an effort. A few people used their towel to reserve a sun lounger but not excessively, possibly as we were out of season. Overall a very enjoyable time, would definitely return but probably stick to the quieter months.More
