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.

Amazing Hotel with amazing food!!!!

Me and my mrs went away for a 2 week holiday from the 27th June-12th July. This hotel was absolutely perfect!! i had been to this hotel 2 years ago with my parents an loved it then i've come back taking my mrs with me an we both absolutely loved it!!! we spent the 2 weeks in the Junior suite, which is well worth the money trust me, and the place was immaculate an always kept clean. There was 1 day where they did not clean it up to the standard that they had done previously but 1 day is nothing out of 13 days of an immaculate room!! Food was outstanding an im a very picky person when it comes to food an i managed to eat a different meal every night the choice is amazing an the best iv ever seen from a hotel! There was a problem with flies every now an then but what do you expect when the doors are open an food is out luckily flies are never on the food there just around the tables. The hotel staff are amazing and they are always willing to help you in any shape or form!! The outside area is forever being cleaned by the staff and they are always so polite!! The only 1 problem in the whole of this holiday was the sun bed situation as it is at every hotel you need to get down to the sun bed for no later then 7:45am to get a nice spot with an umbrella but if you get a nice spot you wont be dissapointed!! They chain up the sun beds to no affect cause people just baggsy an area an when the sun beds are unchained people take them to the spot so its a waste of time really!! Overall the best holiday iv been on an would highly reccommed this hotel. Sam and Amy Aged: 20 & 18More

Really good holiday just don't get a ground floor room!!

Lovely hotel, not much to do in the area as a whole but had a lovely holiday. Would definitely recommend oasis park, was absolutely amazing! The hotel breakfast wasn't anything special but everything else was lovely. Drinks stopped at 11 at night on the all inclusive which is quite early but can always stock up before then. I went with my boyfriend and we are both early 20s so we stayed up quite late, one night we were outside enjoying our drinks and they turned the lights out on us at 12 because they obviously wanted to go home!! When we arrived we were given room 282 which was on the ground floor and unfortunately right outside our balcony was a massive skip which they were filling at 5am with glass bottles and also where the deliveries are unloading, went to reception and they had no problem moving us and we got a room on the fifth floor which was much better. Always lots of games and activities going on around the pool, we went middle of August and never had a problem getting a sunbed despite it being really busy. Would recommend definitely, had a great holiday!!More

August 2015

Stayed here for 10 nights with my family of 5. We booked a family room with a sea view. The room was actually 2 rooms with interconnecting door, which was great. However, they should not have classed the room as having a sea view. You could actually see the sea if you leaned to the right and stood on tip toes (and only from 1 of the balconies, couldn't see anything from the other). Also, the air conditioning was very poor throughout the hotel, in fact probably not even on. The pools were nice but not enough parasols. Entertainment was great and all the hotel staff were very friendly. You could rent poolside towels for €10 per towel. We were given 4 tokens for towel changes. However, we only used 2 tokens as we were always being told there were no clean towels, no matter what time of day we asked. The meals were excellent, as was the bar service. It happened to be my birthday whilst we were there and the hotel acknowledged this with a card, fresh fruit and champagne in our room on the day, which was a lovely surprise. None of us had mentioned my birthday to them! Overall we had a lovely holiday.More

Absolutely amazing hotel, brilliant family holiday

Stayed at this hotel from 5th August 2015 for two weeks. Travelling as a family of 5, ages ranged from 5 years to 67years old. This was our first holiday to fuerteventura and it definitely won't be our last. Hotel: beautiful, spotlessly clean hotel. The majority of staff were very friendly. The doors to the front of the hotel were closed at night as a safety aspect as well as gated exit to the beach -which you needed to use your room key to get back in through them. Which was very reassuring. Reception/check in: this is one of the few con's I have of our whole holiday. Check in was ridiculous. We arrived at the hotel around 2:45 p.m. After queuing at reception, we got our wrist bands and then it was explained to us that check in wasn't until 3p.m. So we were told to go come back in 15 mins. Which was understandable so we did, we were served by the same lady- who then told us our rooms would be another 30 mins. We went for lunch and arrived back at the desk at 3:45 p.m. The receptionist radioed through and was told that our room was still not ready - to come back in another 30 mins. It wasn't until 4:20 we actually got our keys to our room.. a whole 1 hour and 20 mins after check in time!!!!! On the same board it tells you check in time, it states that check out - on your day of departure is 12:00 noon. So I asked due to the check in delay (and the fact that we were returning to the UK on a early evening flight) if we could have a late check out for our in convince. The same receptionist we had dealt with - rudely snapped at us and said no!! Check out is 12 noon. Leaving the counter we were horrified and really worried about the rest of the holiday to come. This is one of the reasons why I have not given the hotel a 5 out of 5. Rooms: when finally we got into our room, we found we had an interconnecting room, our room had a king sized bed (a proper bed, not 2 doubles pushed together) and a pull out bed for our daughter. The beds were so comfy as well.We were ground floor, the view from the balcony was the back of the snack bar though. And enough storage for us all. The maid service was really not good, firstly the linen was changed every 4 days which is very disappointing for such a high standard of hotel. The floor and room dusty and didn't appear to have any cleaning fluid in the toilet nor mopped during our stay. However towels were changed daily. Pools: amazing! Very happy, there were 2 large free form pools, which are suitable for all swimming abilities as the 1 sloped gradually. And the other was only shoulder level in the whole pool. There was also a child's pool, which had a slide in and other things for kids to play with. We spent our time around the kids pool. I will add that the manager had replied to someone's review below and added that the snake and turtle pump had been fixed..- Well it definitely hadn't been when we were there!! Lots of room around all pools. Sun beds were locked up every evening and not released until 8/9 am every morning. Which appeared to be a good idea, however that didn't stop people having to get up around 6 / 7 am to reserve themselves a parasol. Which defys the object of locking up the beds. As we needed a parasol for our 5 year old daughter we unfortunately had to join in the game of getting up at the crack of dawn to hang our towel on the parasol and then wait for the sun loungers to be released hours later. Sun beds were plentiful, no problems in getting a loungers at anytime of day, just the parasols. Restaurant: I am one of the most fussy people when it comes to all inclusive holidays. But I was very very happy with every breakfast/lunch and evening meal we had in the hotel. Lots of choice - even for a veggie. No complaints from any of us. First hotel we have stayed in that offered smoked salmon! And champagne for breakfast!! Entertainment: My god, don't these reps work hard! They are out around the pool through the day then dancing and singing in the evening. We were so pleased with every show we watched in the convention centre, 10/10 especially the rep who played the more of a lead role playing Michael jackson, Danny from grease and elvis. Definitely the best hotel entertainment we have ever watched. Location: next door is the atlantico centre, which had a spar, clothes shops, Indian restaurant, Chinese, and games room. We also had a cocktail one evening sat in a bar outside of the atlantico, If you leave the hotel and turn right, you get to the town of Costa caleta, here we ate out 3 times, Aberdeen steakhouse, fado rock and also fusion 22 which were all brilliant. Fado rock is defiantly worth the que! Taxi from the town back to the hotel was around €3/€4. Bar service was excellent, not long to que to be served and also friendly and helpful. Including making up cocktails. More outside seating in the evening would be beneficial, and also larger cups in the snack bar would be my recommendation. Wifi was ok, not great quite slow however it's free so can't complain! Checkout consisted of just handing your keys back in. We were told that our wrist bands ended at 12 noon on our departure day. However we were able to still order drinks and had lunch in the restaurant with no additional cost. Flies: worth a mention as a lot of people are marking down the hotel for this. Regardless of where you stay in fuerteventura there are going to be flies, it isn't a fault of the hotel, however we did see a few drinks knocked over at the poolside during our stay and because of this the floors were sticky and ants would come. The pool side didn't appear to be washed down in the evenings to get rid of this. Overall, we loved this holiday!!! It was exactly what we wanted from a holiday and our 5 year old had a brilliant time. The only complaints we had was check in problems and the rude receptionist and the linen changed more times than every 4 days. We will definitely return to this hotel!!!More

Family hoilday, Amazing hotel with excellent entertainment staff and delicious food

Great hotel, clean and tidy. Set in the quite Antigua resort close to local shops and airport. Great safe place for young family. Hotel entertainment staff were magnificent, providing a great atmosphere around the pool and hotel including energetic evening shows. Room clean and serviced daily. Food..... so much variety of food and excellent quality. The kitchen staff worked endlessly providing excellent food displays and quality service. The hotel has gated access direct to the beach which is suburb. Great beach with snorkelling opportunities as there are lots of fish to swim amongst. The only downside to our holiday we had was waiting an hour for our coach transfer from the airport to the hotel. We arranged the transfer independently and this was not arranged through the hotel. TOP TIP 1 : Don't bother with coach transfers, Get a taxi. 10 euro and only 10 minuets from the airport. TOP TIP 2 : Don't bring toiletries. There is a Spar hypermarket / little shopping precinct 5 minuets away and can get all the heavy toiletries/ sun cream there . TOP TIP 3 : Bring your driving licence as car hire is so cheap , it's a good way to see the Island. Will we return . definitely..... A big thank you goes to all the staff for making us feel welcomed especially the animation / entertainment team.More
