“The hotel made our holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014 via mobile

Not being golfers didn't affect our week at the Elba. From the moment we arrived the staff made us feel special and continued to do so throughout our stay including a complementary bottle of bubbly for my birthday. The room was so clean and comfortable with a lovely balcony overlooking the pool and golf course. The food was exceptional with 2 specially themed evenings with appropriate entertainment especially the flamingo dancers!
Having a curtesy bus was very useful but the walk to the main resort was a pleasant 15 minute stroll which linked easily to public transport links to the rest of the island. We never return to the same area twice but the Elba Palace Golf could well be an exception to our rule !

Just been back for a second week. Good weather and good golf. Evening dinner we felt was still a little disappointing and could be served hotter. All staff are excellent. Rooms good. Reception staff brilliant and nothing is too much trouble. Need more loungers around the swimming pool.

Thank you for posting a review here on Tripadvisor, we take note on the comment made concerning temperature of evening dinner and at the same time we appreciate your nice words dedicated to our associates, in special to our Welcome Desk members.

We´d like to share with you that in a question of 3 days, we are to launch our new balinese beds área by the pool. This will increase capacity of loungers by our tranquil and relaxing pool área.

We look forward to seeing you back again in a soon future,

We are just about to check out of the Elba Palace Golf Hotel and we have had a wonderful weeks stay. We do not play golf nor do we want to play golf which you may find strange since this is a golfing hotel but it has so much more to offer it is peaceful and in beautiful surroundings the staff are very helpful can't understand the reviews that said they were rude this is simply not true The Manager and his staff Pilar especially are delightful and go out of there way to make you feel welcome, the pool area is lovely and quite and as it is a no child hotel is lovely and quite especially with everyone out playing golf, the food is amazing and it's lovely to be served your main meal they have two specials of the night and if you want you can choose from a menu.breakfast and lunch are as you would expect with a wide choice for both. The lovely court yard in the centre of the hotel is a delight to sit in . We were in room 216 and we had amazing views over Caleta and we could see the sea the beds are comfy and the bathroom is beautiful . There is a free shuttle bus into the main town or you can get a taxi at just 4.50 Euros. If you want a very relaxing week or two child free this is the place to stay and we will be returning in September 2014 for 11 nights. Thank you Elba Palace Golf for a fantastically relaxing week.

Very nice 4 star hotel for adults only. Rooms are spacious and furnished in "old Spanish style". The whole property is well kept and the location next to the golf course is very nice.
We had a nice view from our room to the 9th green and could also see a little bit of the sea. The best views are from the rooms to the pool (pool are, golf course sea and no wind!)

The pool are is quite small and it is about 20 minutes walk to the beach. There are, however, free busses from the hotel to the beach, supermarket and other hotels available several times per day. And it is very cheap to take a taxi. E.g. from the airport to the hotel it costs only about 16,00 euros.

We had a half board and were quite satisfied with the food. Especially the buffet for starters was excellent and the staff in the dinner restaurant was very nice, kind and polite.

The only thing we did not like was the never ending heavy wind! Of course it is not the hotels fault, but anyway it had too big influence on our overall experience of the place.

And also the golf course was little too crowded, as most of our rounds lasted about 5 hours.

Room Tip: The best rooms are with the view to the pool (less wind and sunset)

Everything was just perfect from the start. When the taxi drew up to the door we were welcomed by the reception team, given champagne whilst they took care of the booking details and then shown to our room. The room was spacious well appointed and the bathroom was superb. The dining room was run very efficiently with buffet starter then served main meal followed by buffet desserts. If like me you are a coeliac have no fear as they are so aware. Breakfast was equally good. Golf course on site was also up to the same high standard. It is probably the first holiday I have had where no fault or dislikes could be found. Highly recommended and will definitely be back. Weather during the week was sunny and warm but they don't call them the windward islands for nothing.

Room Tip: We were lucky to have a deluxe room with terrace but a room overlooking the pool probably has more s...

On arriving at the hotel we were told we had been up graded - what they didn't tell us was that the room was a vast suite, faced north east overlooking the golf course but the view was blocked by three palm trees. The bed was enormous and if you had to get up in the night you had to crawl to find the edge of the bed to get out of it. We were frozen in this room and I had to ask for a heater and extra blankets. The food in the evening was good but the breakfasts were fairly limited although the 'egg chef' was excellent. One of the receptionists was most unhelpful when I complained that the poolside towels she had issued us with were only fit for cleaning the floors and held up to the light one could see through them. This is not a 5 star hotel for me.


We thought this would hone our golf for the coming season in UK but how we were disappointed. I had to wear water & windproof clothing for all 5 rounds of golf on the very tight, dangerous and slow golf course. The alternative course 'Salinas' was an absolute dead loss, no grass on the fairways (I know what a links course is) one could destroy one's clubs playing from the black pumice rock which I think they call the 'rough'.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review here on Tripadvisor. We regret to know that you didn´t find the Suite at your liking. All of them are provided with a large King size Bed and this is specially highly valued for majority of our guests, although in your opinión this was not convenient for you. This Winter season is being much colder and windy than usual here in Fuerteventura and we can understand that this fact may let down your general impression when the main purpose of your holidays is sun and golf.
We thank you again for your comments as they will help us to improve the service we provide and we hope you reconsider to come back again to Fuerteventura any further time.

We booked with Thomas Cook and opted for the upgraded golf course view room at an extra £84 each. Don't bother, nearly all rooms overlook the course, or the pool with the course beyond. Our room overlooked 3 palm trees! Another point, on arrival the bus driver said he couldn't get to the front of the hotel so we had to walk about 200m, in the rain, with our bags and clubs. The charge made by Thos.Cook to transfer the clubs (£56 each) from airport to hotel is ridiculous so just get a taxi for about 15 euros. However the hotel overall is top class. The staff are very efficient and welcoming. Half board is with a limited choice from the menu, but still sufficient and of good quality. Bar prices reasonable. Discounted green fees for residents. Golf is tough when the wind blows! Have plenty of balls handy.

Room Tip: Don't bother with the add-on golf view package. As said before pool view rooms get the afternoon...
