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.

Very enjoyable holiday just a few niggles

Travelled there for Easter week, We had booked 2 rooms and the travel agent had requested interconnecting rooms - apparently they don't exist, you have to book what they call a junior suite. So we ended up with two rooms close together. Checking in took a long time not sure if it was that particular receptionist. That said all receptionists were very pleasant and helpful. Rooms were clean and tidy and towels changed if left in the bath. The pool area was great, the toddler pool excellent. The back of the hotel is all walled and you need your room key to access the back gate which is very good and makes you feel secure. Beach is lovely and the water is calm in that area. There is plenty of entertainment in the day which keeps the adults busy, all the entertainment team are friendly and fun. There is a kids club for children age 4+ which is great. We were there for one week and only on one evening we had traditional Spanish musicians and singers perform in the restaurant which everyone enjoyed. People were clapping along with them and taking photos, it was a welcome change. We loved the restaurant, the food was plentiful and varied, there was a chocolate fountain one night at the dessert table. The children are well catered for as there are even Ikea plastic plates, cups and cutlery for children and a special area at the back of the restaurant with food geared for fussy eaters such as plain rice, chips, hotdogs, fish nuggets. At the end of that table there are some large bowls filled with sweets! The staff seemed overworked but we found them always to be polite and helpful. My little boy broke a plate used to hold a serving spoon and the manager (whom some reviewers thought did little) was there in a split second to pick up the broken pieces while calling for someone to bring a dustpan and brush. He constantly watches over the serving areas and over the whole restaurant and I have also seen him bring dirty plates through to the kitchen when they were busy. There is a photographer on site who takes great photos who only charges 4€ a photo. He is friendly and helpful and you can book him to do some family shoots on the beach or in the gardens. We got some excellent photos of the holidays thanks to him. There is a promenade at the back of the hotel which is a lovely walk and leads to some other bars and restaurants about 10mins away. There is a shopping centre next to the hotel which we got some great items from. Negatives: I was disappointed on arrival not to find a porter at the door to welcome you, I feel it makes a huge difference after a long journey to be welcomed at the door and helped with bags especially when travelling with young children and an elderly person. Unfortunately we feel the entertainment in the evening is terrible although the entertainment team try their best. The management should get professional singers/dancers/musicians/performers in the evening. The all-inclusive drinks are really awful, we stopped all inclusive as we did not like any of the drinks on offer. And they do make the cocktails different when you are not on all-inclusive! I was disappointed on arrival not to find a porter at the door to welcome you, I feel it makes a huge difference after a long journey to be welcomed at the door and helped with bags especially when travelling with young children and an elderly person My partner scalded his foot really badly from boiling water coming out of the bath tap. I called the reception to ask what first aid they had and they said none for burns and suggested I go to the bar to get some ice. I did not expect that kind of response from a 4*hotel. They could at least have offered to send someone to the room. The 'games room' is ALL chargeable, every single game table takes money. Another point that bothered us was having to pay 3€ a day for the safe! and the iron was also chargeable so bring your own travel iron. Overall it was a very enjoyable stay and all the staff do there best, it seems to be the owners of the hotel that need to make some changes including hiring more waiting staff and reviewing all those extra charges.More

Good?

The hotel itself is quite good, and I got a room that was supposedly smoke free, but there was some residue odor from the past. The staff were quite helpful all the time and quickly switched me to another. Food wise, nothing special to highlight. Breakfast was good with a large variety of products, even though they weren't of the best quality.More

Going Back!

This hotel was all round amazing! It is located only 10 minutes from the airport, which is great after travelling. You are close to a shopping centre which is only a 2 minute walk a way which has a chemist, supermarket, arcade, bowling and many other shops. The hotel was lovely and clean, a huge variety of food we all found something to eat and in our family we had a 6 year a 13 year old and a 15 year old. The pools were cleaned regularly and were closed if the level were not correct which we thought was great. Food was available at the pool bar throughout the day and sunbeds were placed out in the morning which stopped people getting sunbeds at ridiculous hours of the morning. Rooms were spacious and cleaned regularly, love that they offer the family interconnecting room as this was great as the family were not split up and the pools were a great variety depth wise. Being by the beach meant it was never unbearable heat as you had the cool wind and there was always a lot happening. We visited in easter and we now booked for august of this year and it was so good!!More

Amazing staff make this a delight!

We have just returned from a week holiday and as someone who never writes reviews, I feel compelled to do so for this hotel. On arrival we were impressed! Our room (junior suite) was amazing. The view was spectacular and as we have have two children, the space was appealing. Bathroom was huge with a shower and jacuzzi bath. We arrived in the evening and we were quite taken back by how quiet the surrounding area was. We usually opt for locations where there is lots happening and I must admit, we were initially disappointed by the location in terms of bars/restaurants. Having said that, we soon found the shopping centre next door and the bars and restaurants only €3 taxi trip away. The shopping centre also had go carts, trampolining and bouncy castles which both our children enjoyed each evening. The pool area was lovely. It was clean and plenty of sunbeds. One of the pools was warm which was great for our baby. The kids pool and park were both well maintained and clean. The food was ok. Nothing special but nothing to complain about either. We did eat out on a couple of occasions and this was a welcome break from the hotel restaurant. I would say the food was very typical of an all inclusive resort. What made our hotel was the staff and the entertainment. They never stopped and there was always something going on. It is the first holiday we have been on as a family where the staff have gone above and beyond to entertain. Not only that but they were helpful. We had to take our baby to the hospital during our stay. Everyone was so helpful and considerate and many came to check on her the next day. We always say that we like to try new hotels no matter how good we find one but for the first time ever, this is one we will return to.More
