Third Time at Caletta de Fuste
Our first time at this hotel and we were not disappointed. From the moment we arraived at the very efficient reception we felt we were in efficient hands. Our room was huge as was the bed and very nicely appointed. Lindsey the rep was great - helpful and friendly
We travelled 'all inclusive' and were looking forward to the food. We were not disappointed. There was a good mix of styles and I don't think anyone would be unable to find something suitable. The hotel prepared a lot of local specials, always had a roast joint at both lunch and dinner, and offered lots of fish. Chefs were working hard at the griddles at all meals - pancakes and omlettes at breakfat - fish and meat at other meals. Our only criticism was that the chefs have not learned how to cook bacon. It looked as is it had passed straight from the fridge to servery without experiencing any heat whatsoever!
Entertainment as usual mixed but more that we liked than at some hotels
Well done and thanks we had a good experience and enjoyed the thunder and lightening!

Good but could be so much better
First the good bits.
The hotel was excellent, room large and clean, staff all friendly and helpful, food was superb ( try the roast Pork). On the down side there are not enough staff, the restaurant was extremely noisy, Music was way to loud around the pool side most of the day, the brochure shows the hotel on a sandy beach WHERE IS IT

Newyear, new friends, felt like a family reunion, a very special holiday at the Elba Sara hotel.
Not often everything goes right when we go on holiday, but our trip to fuerteventura went without a hitch. Flying from Glasgow with Thomas Cook where the staff sped us through checkout was a great help, the transfer to the hotel Elba Sara and check in went very smoothly. The following morning the Thomas Cook reps gave us an arrival greeting which was very helpful in pointing out local tours with lots of questions that we threw at them being answered and allowing us to book three tours with pickups at our hotel. Our tours were to Corralejo in the north, Jandia in the south and a free bed tour in the centre of the island this tour one had to sit through an hour of sales pitch which was quite comical but the views were even more stunning with the bus traveling through high mountain passes not unlike the Amalfi coast.
On New Year's Eve the hotel put on a terrific buffet with free champs and a bottle of wine to get everyone in the mood for the celebrations, that evening we had a show and dancing, the bar staff doing their bit. A great time had by all.
The town of Caleta de fuste is a 15 minute walk from the hotel, is a must to visit with it,s many restuarants and bars to choose from, the harbour is a great place where you can sit and relax with a nice cool drink.
On our last day we went to the Oasis park zoo,which has various shows on during the day, well worth a visit.
Our trip home went without a hitch with the t.c staff ready to help if needed, we had a great holiday and look forward to going back.

Great but room for improvement
The H10 Tenerife Playa has the most wonderful location, right in front of the Lido. The hotel, obviously was one of the first built in the resort and whereas some parts of the hotel have been revamped, the bedrooms require immediate attention. New decor, more plug sockets, light fittings fixed and more modern tv's and furniture are also required. We have been to the hotel 4 times now, so some things are right, but as I said the hotel needs a makeover so that our recommendations will encourage others to "make the trip", as it is well worth it. Thomas Cook may not know it but this one is a real gem and should be encouraged to get the improvements done asap. So come on TC get moving, please.

Best Holiday Ever
Had a very very good holiday. The staff could not have been more helpful and very friendly. The hotel and rooms were spotlessly clean. Food and drinks varied. We will definately be going back to the Elba Sara.
