    Excellent golf and beach destination in southern Spain--superb accomodation and buffets that come with it. We enjoyed our stay so much , will return to this paradise!

    Beach club not open

  • Group of friends
    4.2

    The rooms were clean and spacious. The buffet selection at dinner was good.

    There was only one, very noisy pool (waterobics and kids games always on). The rate per person seemed extortionate given the quality of service we received - and most general services were not included in the rate - you had to pay 20 euros per day to use the indoor pool, 2 euros a day to use the safe and 10 euros deposit for a pool/beach towel, but they always ran out of beach towels by the time we asked for them. There was no room service. Also the hotel tried to rip us off on taxis. The location isn't great as you have to take a taxi/bus to get anywhere.

    Beautiful location, right off the beach, very convienent. Staff very pleasant.

    I did not feel that this hotel offered good value for money. The hotel bills itself as a 4 star, but does not qualify by American standards, and barely qualifies by European standards. The quality of the room, linens and dininig facilities are equivalent to a nice cruise ship, but not a four star hotel. For the price I paid, I expected more, overall dissappointed. If the price per night had been 100-120 Euro instead of 220, I would probably recommend it again.

    Good location,next to a good and peaceful beach. Friendly and professional staff.

    I arrived before (Thursday) all the family's (Friday) that occupied the hotel during the weekend and I was assigned for a standard room with communication to another double room with trash cans view'S....that's the treatment for young couples? Bad soundproofing in the rooms, we've listened all the noises made by baby's and child's during the night....I Was there to rest a little bit! A note for the family's: be careful with ticks bugs in the beach, we were attacked by many.

    There is much to like about the Elba. Everything is as advertised and over all great value for money.

    Staff was very good with one exception.

  • Family with children
    7.8

    The instalation for the kids

    We couldnt check in until 4 because they didnt have the rooms ready

  • Couple
    9.6

    The sea view from the bedroom, the close proximity to the beach and the Spa.

    The rooms were a little bit dated and not what I would expect of a four star and for the price I paid.

  • Older travelers
    4.6

    The breakfast was excellent ! The buffet in the evening good !

    They forgot to clean our room from one day to the other ! We paid a little more to have a Junior Suite, but that was waste of money. The room was also foolishly furnished.

  • Family with children
    7.0

    Good size room for a family, clean and modern look. Nice views over golf course and sea. Excellent breakfast compared to other hotels in Spain. Nice walking routes around the hotel and by the beach (2 min walk from hotel)

    No heating- Air conditioning was only cooling and it was freezing during the cold February night. No spare blankets in room. Street parking is limited and not sufficient to accomodate volume of cars. There is paid parking in hotel thogh.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    Staff was great.

    22 Euro per day for the spa.

  • Family with children
    10.0

    I like that it was family friendly. There was something to do for everyone. The chef cooked great food. The best place I have ever stayed.

    Would have liked to see an indoor play area for children under age 4.

  • Group of friends
    8.2

    Lovely location only a short distance to the long sandy beach. Large room with balcony, fridge and clothes-drying facilities and with plenty of lights.

    As with most Spanish hotels, even 4 & 5 star, there are no tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms and no tissues are provided. You have to collect pool towels from the Spa, which doesn't open til 11am and they do not want you to use the room towels, so if you want to use the pool earlier you need to take your own.

  • Family with children
    5.4

    Great food, Enjoyed spa, lovely pool.

    Paying extra for spa which came to almost 70 euros for 2 adults & 2 children. Never seemed to be enough staff on reception ....

  • Single
    3.4

    It is close to the beach.

    Hotel staff was extremely poor. Everything is pay extra. Parking is terrible. Hotel food was plain and excessively expensive. This should be rated a 3-star at best, not 4-star. Choose somewhere else!

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    Rooms, swimming pool, distance to the beach

    Spa - there wasn't anything included in the room rate. I had a wrap treatment in the spa and I found very little professionalism in the young woman who treated me. The lady at the reception was excellent though. I wouldn't have another treatment there.
