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

Stayed in the Elba Carlotta for a week in January and all I can say is from the moment we arrived until the moment we left we had a fantastic time. We were met at check in with a glass of champagne checked in swiftly allocated a fantastic room (423) told that as we were returning customers there was a bottle of champagne in the room . The hotel itself is spotlessly clean and all the staff from the cleaners to the main reception bend over backwards to help if you have any problems . We spent most evenings in the lobby bar and all I can say is that the service is fantastic all the bar staff are a credit to the hotel an all drinks are served with a smile . The entertainment in the lobby bar was great not to loud but very professional and enjoyable. Day times were spent around the pool which was absolutely spotless plenty of sunbeds and the entertainment team around the pool are a credit to the hotel not pushy at all but there if you want to get involved very professional and a credit to the hotel. The pool bar is fantastic ,food available all day and the staff at the pool bar are a credit to the hotel always greeted with a smile and a ola senior, made to feel really welcome also a credit to the hotel .All I can say is that if you are looking for a holiday in a fantastic hotel visit the Elba carlotta and you won't go far wrong,we have just booked to return in March and can't wait to return.More

Perfect birthday getaway

My husband booked this hotel for my birthday we got it for a great price so we were really unsure what to expect , after setting off from the uk in minus freezing temperatures things couldn't have been any better , arrived at the hotel ( only 25 mins in a taxi I wouldn't pre book transfers as only 13€ ) greeted with champagne and a fantastic sea view , as it was my birthday we were upgraded to a suite with yet more champagne in the room ,food was perfect throughout our stay ,room cleaned on a daily basis , can't comment in entertainment as we prefer to go out and about of an evening but all the staff were friendly and very attentive ,we were told we were very lucky to have such warm weather which made our week all the more special , the bar / restaurant at the end of the 'pier ' as you walk out of the hotel is an absolute must too , we will be returning in June for my husbands birthday , already counting down the days .Absoloutly perfect keep up the good work and hope to see you soon .More


Great hotel, staff, location, facilities and price

The hotel is extremely clean and well maintained, it is located around 15 minutes from the airport by taxi, which costs around ten euros. We could not check in on arrival (12.15), we were given wristbands and hotel information and told our room would be ready at 15.00. We were shown where the baggage store is and to say it is ample is an understatement, we went and sat on the terrace bar and had a few drinks before heading for food. As it happens we checked in at around 13.30. Restaurant. The restaurant has a wide and varied amount of food at every meal time, with a huge array of drinks available. Breakfast has a multitude of freshly blended fruit juices, coffee, tea, water, milk etc. Cold meats, cheeses, cereals, bread, pastries, usual fried fare, pancakes, doughnuts, fruit, yogurt etc. Lunch is an array of snacks and warm food, sandwiches, fruit, yogurts, etc Dinner is varied and to be fair I never had the same meal twice in the evening, there is a dedicated kids meal area, which usually has hot dogs, pasta in sauce and nuggets, there is always fish, salads, vegetables, tepanyaki grill, ice-cream, huge array of cakes, fruits etc etc. On arrival at the restaurant you find a seat, which can be a bit of a free for all, but we always managed without fuss, for dinner you tell the maitre'd your room number before sitting, you will normally be greeted by your section waiting staff and offered a drink within a few minutes of being seated, all in all the restaurant is very good. WiFi. The wifi is very good and we had several devices logged in at once without issue, we could get this by the pool even far from the main building and as such I was using deezer for music. It is a pain having to login, but there are worse things to worry about. Rooms. The room was ample with a good TV, with HDMI and USB ports for external devices, there are very few English TV channels if I am honest but who goes on holiday to sit in their room and watch TV? The room was cleaned daily and fresh towels supplied likewise, the bathroom was very big with bath, shower over bath, sink with large dressing table, toilet and bidet. Bars The bar in the lobby is very friendly staffed with a wide array of drinks on the all inclusive, there are numerous menus detailing what is included but it is more extensive than the usual rum, vodka, whiskey, gin AI options. Finding seating can be an issue but if you are not bothered about mingling or having a table you will be fine. The soul and swing night is good as is Lisa the saxophonist who plays there 2 nights a week. The Sinatra bar downstairs opposite the restaurant caters well for kids with a disco daily before becoming more of an adult disco, same drinks available and friendly bar staff again. The convention centre has shows by the animation team and local acts we never went but by all accounts it was pretty good. Pool The pool area is really nice with 2 decent sized pools and a Jacuzzi, there are lots and lots of sunbeds and when we were there this more than catered to the guests, the pool bar "Arrecife" is open from 10.30 until 18.00 and is again staffed by very friendly staff. drinks are in plastic glasses which is not everyone's cup of tea but is safest. The soft drinks are self service which keeps queueing to a minimum, there are also hot drinks available as well as the usual slush drinks and alcohol. The animation team hover around and are not at all pushy but do keep you abreast of the days various activities. The bar has food pretty much all day, with sandwiches and breakfast stuff till 13.00 then stews, curries, fish, chips & rice etc until 15.30, then burgers and hot dogs, salads, cakes etc until 18.00. Local area. There is a shopping precinct literally 5 minutes away with all your sun lotion, toiletry, snack food etc needs, there is a sports shop, perfumerie, fashion shops etc. The beach is right outside the back door and has a promenade which is nice to walk along and also takes you to the bottom floor of the shopping precinct. Animation team. Very friendly and not at all pushy, always seem happy and always happy to help with general enquiries, they are for once a benefit to the hotel rather than a downside. All in all this is a really nice hotel, in a good location, for sun lovers it is perfect either beach or poolside and the golfers have an abundance of local amenities.More


First ever visit

To be honest im happy to give the staff a full 5 stars. Nothing was ever a problem for them, weather it was booking us taxis, giving us advise when we asked them about trips etc, booking us in with free glass of bubbly (unexpected bonus 😉) Rooms very adequate. Always cleaned and beds made. Food typical style buffet hotel foods, but to a very high standard. Location is perfect. Beach is out the back gateway of the hotel. Spa and shopping centre is a 5 min walk away. Overall... cant wait to come againMore

Rebecca H,

Great family holiday

Two adults and one 14month old, perfect for all!! Upgraded our room on arrival, greeted with champagne, sea view, amazing food (even for fussy eaters) lots of choice!!! Friendliest of staff, housekeeping, front of house, restaurant and entertainment staff always friendly and eager to help, attended to any wishes efficiently, (high chairs, printing off boarding passes, booking cabs) plenty for little ones to do, most relaxing and lots of benefits such as beach towels, which you can exchange for fresh. Locally market within walking distance, massage by pool area really good value for money. In particular front of house Oliver and housekeeping Vanessa made our stay welcome but equally all staff very friendly especially to our baby. Would recommend anyone looking for a first family holiday, we can't wait to revisit!!More
