Hotel Elba Palace Golf
Ranked #1 of 23 Hotels in Caleta de Fuste
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 March 2012

Stayed for 7 nights; golf and relaxation.

All staff and the management great except the sourest woman who served in the bar until 6pm and then breakfast. Terrible. Special thanks to waiter David who wore me out watching him.

Food: Breakfast part buffet and choice of simple cooked food such as eggs. Lots of fruit and yogurt and cereals. Thought it was great and open 'til 10:30am.

We had half-board so dinner was included. The starters were great and so were the sweets but the main courses, especially the specials, seemed to be pre-prepared and therefore over-cooked. Not good. Keep to the simple stuff such as chicken skewers etc and go up for a second go at the starters!!

Also so sadly lacking in staff who seem to disappear and they don't replenish the sweets so be quick.

Nice bar with varied music which ends too early.

Rooms were very good and immaculately attended to each day. There are suites but didn't get to have a look.

Our deal included 4 rounds of golf, 3 at Fuerteventura and 1 at Las Salinas. Las Salinas vastly superior to the hotel one which is a bit tired.

Also included was a one-time spa entry at the Sheraton which we used. It was good but basic.

Personally I'm a bit allergic to Sheratons and this was enhanced by the lunch we had at the pool restaurant. We had two Chef's Salads (Chief on the menu) and they were pitiful to say the least. 38 euros for 2 salads, one mineral water, one diet coke and an undrinkable coffee. The chicken in the salads was exactly like chicken nuggets you get in McDonalds (which is nearby) and the goat's cheese was canambert. Las Salinas was great for lunch and half the price.

Pool unheated which I always think is stupid.

All in all a great place which could be 5 star with a bit more attention to the food and a P45 for a certain person. ASM

Room Tip: Some rooms are cold as the prevailing NE wind can be bitter at night and in the morning. Need to be...

What a difference to 2010!!
If you look back you will see my damning review then. We were never going to go back. BUT, we wanted a week in the sun playing golf and had looked at Tripadvisor and thought we would take a gamble as the reviews were very good on the whole. Golf in Tenerife and Gran Canaria is so vey expensive and we only wanted a qucik week to get in to the swing before the season started.

There was new Manager since our last visit, and he is superb and is everywhere making sure that his guests are looked after. The rooms and bathrooms are large and spacious, the food is ok and the hotel and grounds are immaculate. If you want a good value golf holiday in the sun,where the staff will do everything they can to look after you then the Elba Palace cannot be beaten. We would definately return.
Now you wouldn't have heard me saying that after our last visit!!

For note, We usually book with Elegant Golf resorts and did so again this time. David Sledmere will do his utmost for his clients including private transfers.....no hasstle....good price for the package... great!

Room Tip: over the pool to get the afternoon and evening sun. Over the golf course are good too but no evening...

We have just returned from a really lovely stay at this hotel. We were there to celebrate my husbands birthday with lots of golf, we were not disappointed. We were upgraded to a lovely room overlooking hole nine and looking down to the sea. All the staff make you feel so welcome and special and it was a lovely touch having a bottle of champagne on ice in our room when we returned from playing golf on his birthday.
I cannot fault this hotel in any way, so a huge thank you to all at the Elba palace golf

We stayed for a 7 day golf holiday and really liked the hotel's own golf course. The people playing there are from all over Europe and very friendly and relaxed.

The hotel itself has a nice architecture however at some places you noticed that a little refurbishment would be in place. The room was very clean and comfortable, we also had a direct view at the golf course which was nice. Only minor issues were with the not so effective air condition and the really ancient tube TV.

The personnel was very friendly and always happy to help, they speak good English and German and if you try to speak some words of spanish they will be even more helpful :)

Food quality was kind of inconsistent, at some days the dinner was really excellent and on other days the dinner would be just okay. Same goes for the golf restaurant and breakfast.

The hotel provides a free shuttle bus to the nearby city center, but you can also take a taxi which is really inexpensive(~ 5€ to city center) and easy to get.

I highly recommend the golf course. The hotel is recommended if you like to stay directly at the golf course, if you don't mind to take a 5 minute taxi trip, I would rather recommend a nearby hotel in the city.

This hotel is nice and unique. I found the service efficient but somewhat cold. The hotel is noisy....bring ear plugs! Location is not convenient unless you have a car but they do have occasional shuttle buses.
