Just spent 2 weeks at this lovely hotel. And considering all thats going on in the world I felt safe. Very clean, food great, chefs very helpful. lovely staff throughout made to feel very welcome. Special thanks to Mercedes in restaurant and enma in bar.. very quiet in town and beach. A lot of bars closed. everyone wearing masks. thank you for a lovely holiday
Myself and my partner Neil stayed at the Elba Castillo St Jorge and Antigua suite in Caleta de Fuste, Fuertaventura from 15th December 2020 - 9th January 2021. We go to Fuertaventura every year but have never stayed at the Elba before. After much debate as to wether we should go this year because of the Coronavirus we decided to go ahead and stay over Christmas and New year. On arrival we were greeted by Tito on reception, such a lovely gentleman who checked us in quickly and even asked us would we like to go to the restaurant for lunch as it closed at 3pm and it was 2.35pm at this point, he said he would look after our luggage at reception if we wanted to. As we had eaten on the flight we decided to get to our room and unpack, we’d booked a 1 bedroom apartment which was huge, spotlessly clean and fully equipped with all the makings of a home from home for the 3weeks we were there. Our room overlooked the bars over the road and the Dog and Duck pub opposite, it was lovely because we like to see what’s going on instead of looking at the pool. We had a wander out for a couple of drinks and gave the all inclusive a miss that night as we were tired, next day we went for breakfast and were greeted by wonderful, friendly restaurant staff who explained the Covid safety rules and put us at ease. The breakfast buffet was more than ample and well cooked, choices of anything you could want, lunch in the restaurant much the same and dinner too, we unlike a lot of all inclusive guests do not fill our plates 2 or 3 times but thoroughly enjoyed what we ate. The entertainment was superb, it must have been difficult for them because the hotel was very quiet but they continued to go on and did a great job, Tina who played saxophone and sang was brilliant as were the other guys and the young lady in charge of animation was amazing, doing everything to make our stay fun, she even formed a stage all by herself for the act on New Years Eve making a stunning background which looked like it was brought by a professional. Enma on the bar, well she was a star, always funny and upbeat, her service was second to none, and last but by no means least the gentleman who owns the souvenir shop on site was amazing, helpful and so polite and friendly.
Another bonus although I know you don’t go on holiday to watch TV was it had English channels BBC 1 & 2, ITV 1 and 2, and CH 4 which was lovely as when we wanted a quiet night we could watch our fave programmes. There was even an aviary in the grounds with 5 beautiful budgies and a couple of gorgeous hotel cats, the pools were immaculate as was the entire hotel and even though we’ve stayed at at least 10 hotels on the island and 8 in Caleta de fuste, we’ll be returning to the Elba in November till January this year, God willing the COVID issue has gone away so this beautiful place can get really busy again, GOOD LUCK to all of you and if I’ve failed to mention anyone I do apologise.
I was going to give this 3-star hotel an appropriate 3-star rating when I came to my senses. Unlike most, this Hotel stayed open during the pandemic and overcame the challenges this posed. Thank you so much for not canceling our Holliday!
Truly wonderful bar staff, restaurant, and cleaning crew. The place was spotless and the staff couldn’t be more friendly and helpful. One exception - the children's entertainer was not good at handling adults.
The pool is not cold as some other reviews state - it is freezing. But fear not, the Hotel is only 15mins walk from a brilliant beach, naturally protected from the wind.
Breakfast is worthwhile and a sea-view room a must. I regret shelling out for all inclusive - we ended up spending a lot more money dining out. I suspect even the Hotel chefs' would prefer limiting selection and adopting more quality over quantity.
For the price, the apartment room was excellent and the beds in the bedroom extremely comfortable, but the sofa bed is not practical for adult use.
The Management tended to hide from the guests most of the time (and I don’t blame them for that - we were a boisterous lot) but their letter writing was exemplary. I should again only thank them for staying open over this most challenging period - and because of this, I would give the Hotel 10 stars, if I could.
