“Good hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

We returned a week ago from our holiday at this hotel. We were apprehensive before travelling because of the negative reviews we had read. However, we found the hotel was very clean, the bedrooms were large and comfortable with the tea/coffee making facilities an added bonus, the staff were all very friendly, polite and helpful and we found the food to be varied and enjoyable. We enjoyed our holiday very much.

Room Tip: A lot of the rooms don't get sun on the balcony and we think the lower floors could be noisier...

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014

I've never written a review before but I was so impressed by this hotel. We arrived on 14 April, supposed to be for a week, but unfortunately I had to cut this short as my son aged 5 was ill, nothing to do with the hotel he had a viral infection which came out on the 2nd day so must have caught it before we went. The staff on reception were fantastic and very helpful when I needed to change my flights and was obviously quite upset and worried about my son, they were so caring. Anyway, the hotel was spotless, the pools were fantastic lots of sun beds, the kids pool was great and shallow enough to let them in on their own, up to my sons waist at deepest and he is only small, fantastic beach at back of hotel through a secure locked gate, rooms were lovely and big enough for 3 in a standard room, we were upgraded free of charge, the children's entertainment team were amazing and I've been to lots of hotels but these were fantastic, they done everything, if you wanted them too, even took the children for lunch and dinner and to mini disco for you, some, kids were there from 10 till 10!!! Location great, 10 minutes in a taxi from airport and 5 mins from centre. Would definitely reccomend this hotel to families with children under 10!! If I had to pick on anything and it is hard I would say their could b a little more selection for children who are fussy eaters, and the big woman who serves the eggs is not very pleasant but that's all. Oh one more thing the beds are fab, like a kingside and a single together and soo comfy.

Room Tip: 220 facing the sea and sun on the balcony

Just come back fron two wweks all inclusive.
And cannot understand some of the negative reviews!!
I read some of the reviews before going and wasnt expecting much!
How wrong we were the hotel was clean staff friendly and food and drinks very good.
There was always something going on throughout the day and shows on a night ( some of which were very good)
Free wifi also helps with two teenagers.

We definitely stayed in a different hotel to the 'terrible' reviews on here - never had a problem with loud music (it was only one twice a day for some poolside activities) and the food was always hot!

This was such a clean hotel with great service and facilities - all staff were friendly and worked hard. Pool and poolside were immaculately clean. Room was great. All-inclusive was fab - just what I wanted/needed - drinks were all fine for what I wanted and the kids loved helping themselves to the Fanta Limone or Fanta Naranja!

It felt very safe to let the kids (9 and 7) wander around the hotel on their own if they needed to - to get drinks, or return to the room to collect things. They loved the pool and would have spent all day in it, every day, if they could.

Would only add that, although there were signs, and verbal reminders, not to use towels or belongings to reserve sun beds, everyone did, and if you tried to get one after breakfast, they were all taken! So we gave in in the end and did the same on the last day, just to ensure we got on for our final day! The staff don't actually take any action about the reservations of beds, so I guess people continue to do it!

Would also add that, we did the PAL promotional free half day trip and it was great for seeing local villages and the island's landscapes, and I was interested in the product. However, having returned home and having googled it, there are plenty of similar products available at much cheaper prices here, so don't fall for the patter and sign up - but certainly enjoy the trip for the sightseeing!

All in all, we are already looking at booking here again for next year :-)

Thank you to all at Elba Carlota - I've not been abroad in 14 years, and not with my children - and it was exactly what we wanted for a holiday!!

Just spent 12 night s at the hotel with my wife and daughter and don;t have a bad word to say. The hotel was clean and spacious, the gardens was maintained well. The food was nice and plenty of options and variations each night. The service was good, especially the lady at the pool bar who was a nutcase, always smiling and on top form. My young daughter of nearly 3 was in her element, in the kiddies pool and on the park. She also joined up with the mini club at night and was made up with the entertainment. Caleta de fuste was a 15 minute walk down the beach which was a nice bfrisk walk and there is a shopping complex next door with a Spar hypermarket. The beach was clean and was straight outside the grounds of the hotel. The only sour point was waiting an hour and a half for our airport transfer to the hotel, we ended up getting a taxi for only 14 euro's.
