The Elba carlota closed on Monday. Not for good I hope! Sign on the door says all guests should check into the Elba Sara.
Fingers...and toes crossed we’ll see some of the hotels reopening for the winter season in November.
What a shame ! Incredible how this virus is putting us to our knees .
Well , we were supposed to have checked in wednesday 23 , 2020 but were forced to cancel our yearly 3 weeks elba carlota due to Government forbidding to fly to red zones .
When I now hear the elba closed , am feeling very sad but also kind of happy we didn't come over since the hotel employees kindness have always been a big part of our happy staying . ( after so many years , we have had an outstanding relationship with all of them and bringing with us a lot of Belgian chocolate , was always a happy party for them )
And the second wave in Europe has only started and getting worse .... very promising ... ppppfffffttttt.....
Forum newcomer here, regular Caleta holidaymaker.
I was just wondering if anyone who lives in Caleta at the moment knows if the situation with the Elba Carlota has changed at all? Does it look like it has reopened?
Reason I ask is that it is currently available to book directly on the Elba Hotels website, although that doesn't necessarily mean it is actually open, perhaps they are taking bookings and then moving them to the Elba Sara. I am looking for a hotel for a couple of nights for an upcoming trip, I am actually staying at a private rent for most of the trip however I need somewhere for the first 2 nights since my chosen rental place was booked up for those nights. I have stayed at the Carlota a few times (my usual place though is another large hotel which I know is still closed) however this time I would rather my money went to the local economy hence the private rent.
Any news appreciated, thanks in advance!
Hello Felipe - welcome to the Forum.
The Carlota was open until about 3 weeks ago. The Elba hotel group has the Sara and the San Jorge/Antigua Suites hotels open.
Old topic I know but in case it helps anyone, the situation with the Elba Carlota hotel is still the same, it is closed and bookings are being transferred to the (almost) neighbouring Elba Sara. Am sure people local to Caleta are aware of this but in case anyone is considering a visit I thought I would share, since they are still taking bookings on their website for both hotels. I had booked directly with them some time ago and I only found this out by contacting them, they did not proactively inform me.
The Elba Carlota is open again since july 24th , according to a mail I did receive in july .
Hopefully is stays open and are we going to be able to travel on september 22 , depending on the covid situations , of course
Booked in 6th October for a week so I hope it's open 😀
Elba Palace Golf now open.
Also, according to the Reception, the free golf bus restarts on Monday. Not clear if it’s the full pre COVID timetable.🚌
