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.

Fantastic hotel

We stayed here in March 2014 for 7 nights ,first time at this resort and hotel.Room was spotless ,staff very helpful and friendly.We asked for a top floor room with pool view. Food you could not fault ,some thing for everyone .Themed nights were very well organised. Beach was just outside the gates to the back of the hotel ,short walk to a few shops .Main town is just a taxi ride away where you will find lots of bars/ restaraunts. Overall we had a very relaxing week and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to friends and family.We will be returning. Sorry for the late review .More

A couple of things let this Hotel down

We stayed at this hotel from 8th -18th October 2014 the rooms staff and the pools & area around it were all very good , but a couple of things let it down, the toilets by the pool flooded every day we did bring it to the attention of the rep but nothing was done while we were there? And as some one has already said the diner dress code for a 4 star hotel is non existent while the staff and a good many people were dressed smart others were dressed as If they were at a Butlins cafeteria, if you don’t mind sitting down to diner next to some one In sports shorts and vest tops you will fit right in. They need to take it out of the write-up that men are to wear trouser and shirts in the restaurant for diner ( if they don’t enforce it like other hotels) as it gives the wrong Impression that it’s a 4 star restaurant, and only having plastic bowls ( not china ) what's that all about? wont be going back pity as the rest of the hotel was ok.More

Lovely hotel...go all inclusive

We had a wonderful holiday at the Elba Carlota. It is in a great location, with gated access to the beach and a short walk to the local bars and restaurants. A good choice for families and couples all the same. Over piece of advice I'd give is go all inclusive!! We went half board as we like to eat out, but it is worth your while to pay to get your drinks included as if you buy them in the hotel you get all inclusive sizes! Alternatively, buy drinks in the supermarket and pay for a lounger on the beach - we did this an it was great!More

nice hotel

just returned from a 7 nights half board at elba Carlota hotel rooms lovely an clean very modern hotel food was very good even my wife who is a poor eater found something to eat every night on the down side because we were not all inclusive we had to register a credit card at reception on arrival and sign for every drink we got from the bar this caused a delay at a already busy bar whoever shouted the loudest got served firstMore

Very good hotel, great holidays!

We stayed here in October, for 10 nights, me, my husband and our 4 year old son. Overall, we were happy with the hotel, I don't think you'll be disappointed if you book here. RECEPTION - most of the staff very helpful, informative, nice, good customer service, especially Luboslava. ROOM - we had pool and side sea view, room was clean and spacious, no issues there. Housekeeping very good. FOOD - it got a bit repetitive after a week or so, but that's usually the case with all inclusive buffets. They do different theme nights though - Canarian, Italian, Mexican etc. so there is some variety. There was always something to choose from, I wish there were more vegetarian options, but I never went hungry...nice selection of salads, fish, meats, pasta, desserts..and most of the time very tasty too, we had no issues with food at all. Waiters in the restaurant are very nice, helpful, hard-working. DRINKS - I loved the fresh juices for the breakfast, really great! Good selection of teas, coffees, very good sangria...As for the cocktails, I did not feel any (or very little) alcohol in them, we usually went for wine or sangria. Bar staff very good too. POOLS - the water was quite cold, which is fine and refreshing on a hot sunny day, but when it's cloudy and not so hot, the water feels freezing. We never spent the whole day beside the pool, usually only 2-3 hrs, then had a break and went to the beach, so we never had an issue with sunbeds, shades etc...there was always plenty of free sunbeds, of course not always available under the umbrella but this did not bother us, because we were swimming and having fun in the pools. I had one issue with the pools though - the attitude of the lifeguard. On the first day when we arrived, there was absolutely nobody swimming in the pool. We took an inflatable pool mattress to the pool but the lifeguard came 2 minutes later to tell us this is not allowed. When we asked why, he only said :pool rules but he couldn't explain why they're not allowed in the pool. I have no problem following the rules, but I need to see the logic behind them and this one did not make any sense to me. Perhaps they're not allowed because they could interfere with people swimming in the pool, okay, I could understand that, if there is high season, pool full of people, but not on a day, when there is absolutely nobody else in the pool. Can somebody explain this to me? First hotel ever where no inflatable swimming aids are allowed. Anyway, we followed the rules, but observed that the following days, many other guests were surprised at these rules too. After few days, our little son was swimming in the pool with his armbands on plus a swimming ring (a little bit bigger that those smallest ones, but still a child size) and again, the lifeguard approached us in quite a rude manner and said our son cannot have the ring, because he already has the armbands! This time, I insisted he tells me why, I asked 'is my son hurting anyone with the ring? what is the problems?' he was only swimming at the beginning of the pool with no people close this him. I think the lifeguard should use the common sense and a lesson in customer service would be useful too. ANIMATION TEAM - great, very friendly, good activities throughout the day. I cannot comment on the night shows as we were not taking part - our son was always wrecked after a day full of sun and swimming and always went to sleep between 8 and 9, so we did not go out for the evening programmes. LOCATION - great location, only a short drive from the airport, literally 3 minutes walk to the beach. I would recommend this hotel for families with young children and for older people, it's quite peaceful, feels secure, easily accessible...Maybe not so great for young couples seeking nightlife.. Would I come back? I think yes, the hotel is a very good standard, great friendly staff (almost all of them), good food, good location. Maybe if we go on a family location with my parents some day, I think they would love it here, so we might be back. But after seeing the beaches of Jandia and Corralejo in the other parts of the island, I think we will be booking there the next time.More
