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.

Stayed here for 2 wks in August.Really enjoyed our stay. Food excellent as was location,directly oppo' beach at back where sand was beautiful.There was a lovely walkway there 2, along by beach 2 town small town,wild chipmonks along way so take some nuts as they will come 2 eat them from your hand. Super shopping mall 2 min's walk away.We booked a sea view room but b aware what they call sea view is actually side view unless u book suites at back which r more expensive.Although generally pleased with hotel a few improvements could b made .Eg opening of pool bar at night for adults,adults only pool in part of garden area at back with bar, there is more than enough room.More sun beds definitely needed especially in high season.The hotel takes 700 guests and yet there are only about 350-400 beds, I counted them!Sunbeds on beach are E3.50 and there is no bar or toilets,hotel doesn't own them so u r walking back and forth for facilities. Staff are very helpful and friendly especially reception and Daniel who booked us in.Well worth hiring car to travel around island, we visited all other resorts and we were in best one. B 4 we went, we looked at other hotels but having actually seen and walked around them whilst there, concluded ours was the best.Went on ferry 2 Lanzerote very good trip, well worth it. Also went 2 zoo worth going there 2. Rooms good size as was balcony but some balconies had small wall instead of railings, so 2 view sea at all u had 2 stand and lean over, not ours fortunately = 425 as I could look through bars at side. Good design of corridors as built around small garden area so light and airy.Island quite windy, so cool in evenings, take jacket.Near airport so some planes coming over but not problem.All in all super holiday,worth 4 stars. NB wi fi v poor even in reception although free.These days there should b free wi fi in all parts of hotels even bed rooms! Another improvement most needed is bar for AI until 12 not 11. Lovely 2 have tea making facilities in room but nothing was ever replenished!Fridge useful too.More

Wonderful relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings

We had a fantastic week at Elba Carlotta. Firstly let me just say. Unless you have a transfer included from airport don't book one, we got a taxi it was about 10 mins trip and cost about 5-6 euros!! From the minute we arrived we were looked after. Reception we friendly and helpful and were able to assist with any problems effectively and fast. Our room was lovely and clean and only slight gripes were that the shower door didn't fit so we ended up with a very wet bathroom. Not a major problem for us but I am sure someone will find a reason to make it a major problem. Air conditioning was not fantastic but worked. Our only complaint there was that it only worked from 12pm to 12am. You are not really in your room much during those hours. It was very hot at night and we couldn't leave the patio open as we were over the restaurant it got quite noisy in the mornings. The pool was lovely and obviously there was the usual melee for sunbeds. It does make me laugh when people complain about this. You show me any family hotel anywhere during August that does not have this problem. We just went the beach for a few hours then came back and there were usually one of two to be had. I think the biggest problem is the lack of umbrellas. Yes, the ones there do look very pretty but if you are fair skinned and need shade or have young ones there is a lack of shade. Again, it was not a problem for us but had we been with our family when they were younger it would have been a major issue. Maybe a few fabric ones could be provided just to offer a solution. Food was lovely and again why the heck do people moan it was always the same. You have gone All Inclusive, this is what happens. If you want a unique dining experience every night go bed & breakfast. They worked hard and made it as pleasant as possible with lots of choices and a good selection of drinks. The animation team did a sterling job and although we only went to one show it was good fun. The beach was lovely and the beach restaurant was ok, not best food ever but nice to sit and watch the sea. We hired a car via Avis directly from the hotel. Went to Correlejo water park and town for the day. Water Park great fun not huge but enough there. Got showers there and changed and went to the town. The new town not really our cup of tea lots of shops and English bars. However, the old town harbour area is beautiful. We had a lovely tapas meal for 3 with wine and coffees and a few after dinner drinks for £55, very reasonable. Wish we could have gone back to Correlejo as the sand dunes and sea look lovely. All in all a lovely relaxing holiday. Possibly not for people wanting late nights and night life but perfect for us and people with families. Thanks Elba Carlotta we will be back........More

7 day stay Jul/Aug 2014

Really enjoyed our stay at the Elba Carlota. No problem checking in, loved our upgrade to senior suite, give me a jacuzzi bath and I am afraid I will have to use it!!! problem, something to please everyone, show cooking really good, good choice from breakfast to evening meal. AI ended at 11.00 pm, maybe an issue with some people but not for us. Bottled water included in AI, good idea. Near to shopping centre. Lovely beach at the back of the hotel, (take some bread to feed the fish in the sea!) Animation team...Brill, keen, informed guests of activities but not pushy at all. Lots of things going on..Archery, dance, gym, cookery demo's, salsa..etc.. can't comment on kids club as didn't use. Entertainment in evenings ...good, enjoyed by all. Sunbeds...Hhhmmm, what is the answer? no different from anywhere there first thing to "claim your spot", plenty of sunbeds available, parasols are the issue!!! We did the "stake out" for one day...too busy on other days, it depends on whether you want to be by the pool every day. Overall, really enjoyed our stay, would we return...probably yes! xxMore

Good choice

We had great time in the hotel. It's our second time to this island and its very close to where we stayed last time. The hotel has great location, directly opposite the beach. It's almost next door to a shopping mall, which we have visited a couple of times for water, sweet, clothes, gifts etc. the staff in the hotel are all very helpful and friendly. We really enjoyed it!More

Fantastic hotel. Five star staff!

We stayed at the Elba Carlota for two weeks in August. The hotel is very clean and spacious and the staff and animation team are superb. The rooms are a good size, our double bed was huge! The room was cleaned and made up every day. The pools and amenities are very good. The hotel backs on to the beach which is lovely. We were a family of five and staying all inclusive. The food was very good. Favourites included roasted salmon, ribs, paella, roast duck and chocolate fountain. All food was hot and the excellent kitchen staff made sure everything was topped up and available. There are a few small issues which need a bit of attention which would make the stay even better. • More bar staff in the bars in the evening, especially at peak holiday times. • More sun beds!! (very important). Its not a holiday when you have to set your alarm for 8 am to ensure that the family has got sun beds for the day. There is plenty of room around the pool and even in the gardens for more sun beds. The hotel does have a ‘no reserving sun beds’ policy, but it isn’t controlled. Although the sun beds are locked up at night but this just causes more ‘subbed stress’ when waiting for them to be unlocked. • The hotel has got a lovely restaurant by the pool, but this was not open for use. Why not? It would have been very nice to sit in there at lunchtime. • The bar area around the pool should also be open during the evening. • Bottled drinking water was included in the all inclusive, but all inclusive finished at 11pm. One night, just after the show had finished, I asked for a couple of bottles of water but was refused as it was past 11pm. We didn’t have any drinking water in our room and our youngest child had tablets to take. I managed to get some water from the water fountain outside the gym. The water should be available 24hrs. These are small issues which should not put anyone off of staying at this hotel. We would definitely return to the hotel and recommend it to our family and friends. Well done and thank you to all at the Elba Carlota, we had a wonderful time staying with you.More
