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.

Food and hotel = GOOD

There was a wide variety of food at this hotel and they had themed evenings - Italian, Mexican, Chinese etc. There was also a kids buffet (just in the evening), so they can still get chips, hot dogs, rice etc. The entertainment was also good and the team were very friendly. The only negative about this hotel was the kids club and the sunbed situation. The kids club was poorly supervised and we didn't feel comfortable leaving a 6 year old with them. Before I went to this hotel we read plenty of reviews about the sunbeds and reserving them early in the morning. We started doing this before going to breakfast as they were already getting reserved with towels. The hotel then changed the rules and the beds are now chained up until 9am, and then there is a mass of people rushing to go for breakfast at the same time. It has helped in a way but people still sit around the pool waiting the beds to be unchained, before pouncing on them! I don't know what the solution will be. More

Fantastic Family Holiday

We stayed at the Elba Carlota for 10 days in August. (2 Adults & 1 child of 11) We had an amazing time - from our initial greeting from the great reception team. The staff at the hotel could not do enough to help and make sure the holiday was enjoyable from start to finish. Our room was on the 3rd floor - it was clean and bright. The only thing I could think that would make it better was if the hotel put a few bottles of water in the fridge for the arriving guest. The bathroom was clean, bright and spacious. We did not have a pool view we were opposite the Sheraton Hotel but we had a nice view of the beach. I read some reviews and people were moaning about it being in the flight path - I was not woke by air traffic once during my stay. The pools are clean and well maintained and there is always a life guard on duty. The pool area gets cleaned every night. They do chain the sun beds up to try and avoid people reserving them but in all honesty I think this is a waste of time for the hotel as the same people stand outside waiting fro them to be unchained so it really doesn't achieve anything. There is always something going on around the pool - the animation team offer aqua gym, water polo, spanish lessons, cooking lesson and latin dancing. There is a mini club and maxi club - my son did not attend the maxi club as it is not made very clear if this is only open to the guests booked with the main tour operator that books the hotel. The food is plentiful and there is an awful lot of choice, every night there is a new theme and some other food to try. Service in the buffet is good too. I think anyone could find something they would enjoy. Lobby bar upstairs is well presented and the staff are polite. Wifi in the lobby bar was weak but had great service in my room. I would go back to this hotel again!More

The best holiday I have ever had!!!

Anybody who has been to this hotel and wrote a bad review needs their head examining For me it was all about the entertainment team It has nothing to do with Thomas Cook There are 3 companies who have staff at this hotel framissima / anamacion / and iclub (I think) If you don't get involved with any of them then you will regret it They do activities all day from morning gym to shooting to archery to football to volleyball and best of all "AQUA GYM" .... No problem!!! They put on shows on a night Best reps to work in a hotel I have to say Lovely relaxing location The food was lovely and plenty to drink in the hot sun They have kids clubs so you can let your children have fun all day while you relax or join in the activities If you are looking for a relaxing holiday look no further Everybody needs a bit of fun and you can join in with the entertainment team as you please Book a minimum of 10 days as the first couple you will be getting settled and observing All in all best holiday I have ever been had! Will def go back!!!More


Fantastic hotel

We stayed at this hotel for a weeks all inclusive holiday, wow I would say this is one of the best hotels we have stayed in, you could not find a fault at all. The staff were brilliant especially the entertainment team what a great bunch of energetic guys you could ever meet, reception was helpful and the food and drink went on forever, we have never gone back to a place before but we are returning next year for sure, we also joined the fidelity group as its a place you can return and we will, thanks elba Carlota for everything.More
