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.

Disappointing - in 2015 there should be working wifi

The good first; most of the hotel staff are friendly and helpful. There's plenty of food and a wide choice.Plenty of hot water and good powerful showers. BUT - if you advertise a hotel as having wifi it should have reasonable signals. In 14 days it worked on and off in the lobby only (really uncomfortable chairs and tables to work at). Then for the last 4 days there was no wifi at all. I suggested to the receptionist that they put a sign up in the lobby making this clear as I and others were wasting time and patience attempting to connect when there was no connection. No sign was put up. No-one had any idea if or when it would be fixed. If the hotel was rated 3 star and priced accordingly it would be okay. It does not merit 4 stars. The restaurant is much too busy. There are not sufficient tables for the number of guests who roam around with plates in their hands with nowhere to sit. It was like this almost every one of the 14 nights. On checking out the receptionist made two mistakes with my bill, which would have made the stay dearer if the errors had gone unnoticed.More

I was on a short Busman's Holiday (I'm a hotel manager in UK). I have the following comments/observations: 1. Courteous check-in from a delightful, very friendly and welcoming Receptionist. My apologies but I didn't read her name badge (tall blonde lady with glasses). 2. Absolutely beautiful room which was spotless and well cared for by the Housekeepers. 3. Excellent breakfast with massive choice to cater for all tastes....(even gluten free range on offer) 4. Beautiful pool area and good sporting facilities. 5, Swift check-out by the Guest Relations representative, who when seeing her colleagues were under a little pressure to deal with multiple check-outs and ins, she immediately left her work station to go onto Front Desk to assist them. Great team work. All in all, this is a fantastic hotel and I would highly recommend it. Additionally, I can't pay Management and Staff any bigger a compliment other than saying.....I enjoyed a relaxing break in a fabulous hotel and I will certainly return to experience Elba Carlota hospitality. Thank you.More

Wi-Fi let it down

The hotel itself is well kept and cleaned, our room was perfectly nice, and the staff were all very polite and accommodating. However a few things let it down, namely the wi-fi, which is only available in common areas and not in the rooms, and only intermittently available at best. One minute the connection is fine, then the next minute it is completely lost and makes working on the Internet very frustrating. On our last day the internet was completely down so we had to pay for a connection through our mobile network operators. The staff couldn't offer a solution to the problem and could only offer using their own computers with a wired connection at a frankly extortionate rate of 1 Euro for 10 minutes. Otherwise the food was very average. The breakfast spread was good but the quality was not: coffees from a self-serve machine; scrambled eggs without any seasoning and watered down orange juice for breakfast were some of the lowlights. Lunch was better but I'm pretty sure the fish was defrosted and not cooked from fresh. Either way, it didn't taste of much. Overall this hotel represents good value for money, however I guess you get what you pay for.More

Beautiful location

We stayed at this hotel 27th dec till 3rd jan2015 2 adults 1child aged 13 on arrival we were checked In very quickly we paid extra for a sea view but felt our room did not match what we had paid plus considering they had checked 3 of us in there was just one double bed in room so reception staff moved us straight away to another room and gave us a put up bed within 5 mins reception staff were very helpful. Room and all of the hotel was very clean and staff busy cleaning etc all of the time. Room was nice bathroom lovely both very clean bed was huge but uncomfortable.rooms cleaned everyday Food was good great selection for all but got a bit bored of the same thing and ate out twice but so much selection in restaurant you would never go hungry or thirsty as drinks selection was great as were the cocktails all staff friendly too. Pools were lovely but far far too cold which did ruin the fun of the pool the hotel grounds and gardens were beautiful loved the fact you could sit round the pool for the entertainment and laughs but you could also sit in the gardens in the peace and chill. Entertainment of the evening was ok but we made our own fun and had a fab holiday New Year's Eve was fantastic the gala was fab great atmosphere with our new friends tony Caroline and Ben so much so that we came home and booked straight away for this new year can't wait to go back see you all avian in December elba!!More
