    Very pleasant hotel with very nice staff and relaxed atmosphere… Popular hotel for families and groups of people, close to the beach and centre of Las Americas. I had half board and the food was plenty and a lot to choose from: lots of fresh or cooked vegetables, all kinds of meat with sauce or made on the grill, pizzas and cakes + fruits of all kind (all and all, I thought the food was very good and cheap). I hardly had time to taste everything, but I enjoyed every evening some kind of fresh fish on the grill. All personnel is working hard to satisfy each and every wish of their customers while still sending you a smile or a nice word - so that we should all feel welcomed. I was very satisfied with my room (on the third floor) and enjoyed very much its terrace and big bathroom. Of course I could have sleep on a better bed + pillow, but then you'll have to add some stars and a higher price.

    If you are planning on having everything for yourself, this is not the place; no Robinson Crusoe in Las Americas. There are lots of people living together and eating together at this hotel and there are families with small children; there are also groups of people enjoying themselves until late in the night or early morning! Maybe sometimes enjoying themselves too much and disturbing those who would like to sleep (including children). But that has nothing to do with the hotel in itself or its staff but with its guests. The receptionist is trying to keep them quiet but they cannot do more than that. It's up to each and every guest to respect the others trying to sleep. Could though feel crowded, especially in the high season period. I had a great holiday anyway and you'll fall in love with the weather, the town and its people.

    Plenty of places to dine out within easy distance, all varied(Chinese, Indian, Italian etc.) Plenty places to walk along beside the sea and the town. Bus/ferry tour to island of La Gomera, very unspoilt. If you're feeling adventurous and super fit, try climbing Mount Teide(gasp!!) 3700metres. Try going whatever you're interest is.

    The location is excellent. Restuarant staff very very friendly and food was very very good.

    I was given the wrong room type for the first 2 nights and had to get yourselves involved to change it. At times the queues in the restaurant were very long, mostly because there were not enough staff

  • 8.2

    Hotel very central and good value for money. Food ok. Breakfast very good. Hotel staff very polite and friendly. Basic rooms but clean and towels daily linen a couple of times per week. Overall good.

    Plastic cups in bar for drinks. Could be a bit noisy at night with people returning to rooms in the early hours. But realise where you are, las americas.

    We travel a lot and are not particularly fussy but this hotel should only have 1 star.

    Aparthotel Columbus was a big disappointment, dusty in the rooms, equipment failures, charge for any extras such as power to the TV, cleaners do not use vacuum cleaner when cleaning, all-included tourists (Englishmen) screams late at night in the bar and corridors, we could only sleep quiet 4-5 hours per night, someone banged on the door in the middle of the night and the staff did nothing to prevent this (though the hotel is camera monitored and we called the front desk), poor front desk service.

    My husband and daughter came with me to columbus hotel and we had a lovely holiday. There was a lot of facilities at the hotel especially for young children. They had water polo, games and even a bouncy castle was there one day. The all inclusive looked good although we didnt avail of it. It is a very central hotel. Only 5 minutes walk to the beach and loads of bars and restaurants and shops within one minutes walk. Yes we would go back.

    We rang the hotel specifically to find out if they had wi fi in the hotel rooms as this was omportant to us. They said yes that u could purchase a card from reception and it would definitely work, it didnt. They kept telling us that the company that supplies the cards didnt deliver any. Couldnt work that out because they had wi fi in the hotel. The reception staff werent great either.
