Stayed at the Elba Carlota from 14th - 21st October 2011. Booked this Hotel because it was a first choice 4* premier. I would rate it at 3* plus
The hotel is very nice, rooms are ok but I did have a problem with ants in the room and in the bathroom.
We did not pay for a sea view room but I did request one on a high level floor and we were given one on floor 4. The view was lovely.
Had a problem with the air con. It didn't seem to want to work, so nights were too hot in the room.
I was told management turned the air con off at 11pm but I don't know if this was true or not.
Be careful if you put anything in the mini fridge because they charge you 1.50 euros for the use of it per day. This should be part of the all inclusive, you also have to pay for the safe.
All in all it was a nice hotel but poor service.
Food is very salty but you get used to it, (either that or they were putting less salt in the food after the first couple of days) what ever it was it was fine after day two, and the majority of the time we did enjoy it.
The service in the restaurant was very poor. Not what you would expect for 4*.
Pools are very nice and although one of them is apparently heated it is still far too cold.
Plenty of sun beds at any time of the day.
!0 - 15 minutes walk to the town. Look out for the Chipmunks if you walk via the beach there is a lot living near the Gerianos suite hotel. Very tame and will eat nuts or cucumber out of your hand.
The weather was warm but it was cloudy every day all except one when the sun came out at 11am.
This was my 1st visit to the canaries and I would not rush back.. There are far better places for an October break for the same money.
