Nice Hotel, enjoyable stay
Posted Feb 10, 2017
My sister & I had a lovely stay at the Elba Carlota. Our room was really nice, although we had to rearrange the furniture as our twin beds were side by side like a double!! It would also have been nice to have had a glass screen on our balcony (as some others did) rather than the solid concrete one, as once we sat down we couldn't see anything! But it was still lovely to have a balcony and it was a great shelter from the wind. Oliver on reception was so friendly and helpful when we checked in, although one or two of the other reception staff were ....... well, let's say less friendly. The breakfast & dinner buffets, overall, were fabulous (apart from the soggy vegetables), great variety of food and perfect for a veggie - salad bar was excellent and super-fresh. The waitresses & waiters worked super hard, they were non-stop. Always somewhere to lay at the pool area, although it would obviously be much busier in season (we went in Feb), and just outside the back gate was a lovely beach and a nice little walk along the coast. Sadly the gym was very disappointing, mega squeaky (and therefore unusable) cross trainer, one of the 2 treadmills was broken, one of the 2 sports bikes had a part missing so seat couldn't be altered, and water had run out - it's a nice gym, just needs some care and attention.
