Just got back from a week at Columbus- I was nervous about going because of some of the reviews, and when I turned up as the sign looked really outdated. But it was perfect for what we wanted, I would reccomend it for groups of young people but not for families (I went in a small group of 18 year olds)
The location was perfect, 10mins to the beach, 5 mins to the shops and strip. There was a bus stop near the strip which had a free bus to Siam Park and there was a taxi rank 1 minute from the hotel- very cheap only about 5 euros to Los Cristianos and the Port.
The hotel staff were mostly nice, the bar staff were fantastic and the maids were helpful. The rooms were modern and cleaned everyday but we did have one incident with a cockroach (the maid sorted it) but its a common problem on the Island. The pool area was great, a good atmosphere but sunbeds were difficult to get, there's a quiet bit at the back aswell with another small pool.
The food was very samey, but it was nice, there was some variety but its mainly pork/beef/turkey and chips. The bar was good, you could get snacks all day and the drinks were good- very alcoholic! The cocktails were nice too.
As for the nightlife, the PR's on the strip, and the lookeylookey men are a NIGHTMARE, you get stopped, constantly. The drinks deals are good though- 5 euro gets you 2 drinks, some shots and a cocktail in most bars. The best bars seemed to be Sound of Cream and O Neills, then Tramps was good later on.
Siam park is a must- 33 euros but its fantastic, but you can't take in a picnic and the food is expensive, but its a good day out. We went on a boat trip but it was a total waste of money, me and my friend were sick the whole 3 hours but we did see whales and dolphins. Lots of people and reps try and rip you off, we managed to get some good deals from the port.
You don't get much sleep as its so noisy, but then if you make noise you don't feel bad. All in all its a perfect hotel and location, I would go there again, it seems a well known hotel in the resort and its perfect for groups, met loads of great people there and I'm considering coming back next year!
