“Value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2013

Me and my boyfriend just got back from our holiday in tenerife where we stayed at the Columbus hotel. After reading some of the reviews on here we were rather nervous about staying there. We read that a lot of other people had said that their rooms were unclean and dated. We went half board and were put in a refurbished room. It is clear that if you intend to go self catering, you will be staying in the dated rooms as these are the only rooms with kitchen appliances in. It is defiantly worth paying that little extra to stay half board as you have a well kept and modern room to stay in. The food was as we expected, very bland and often to be the same thing each night. We didn't see any of the entertainment whilst there as we spent a lot of time out of a night time. But the noise from the entertainment often ran on for duration of the night. On the third night of our stay, at around 3am, a noisy couple decided to have a drunken domestic throughout the hotel. Although they were two floors above us, the noise carried through the entire building. An hour and a half later, a member of staff decided to step in, and the noise then quietened. We were disappointed with the level of professionalism the staff showed during this occasion, as many other people were coming out of their rooms to see where the noise was coming from. Our rooms were cleaned everyday, but if you wish to have fresh sheets and towels everyday, your used ones need to be left in a pile on the floor, otherwise the maid will just remake the bed. Overall, the value for money was excellent, and if we were ever wanting a low priced holiday in tenerife again, we would consider the Columbus hotel again.

Hotel wasnt good, the bar staff were rude at time. I went all inclusive we had to que up for 15 mins just to get a drink, to only be told 2 drinks per person. The food wasnt great at all, i found 3 hairs in one of foods. I had to get up at 4am to reserve a Sun bed for the day. As there was no chance without doing that. We had to be out are room at 11am and they didnt let us extend as the coach picked us at 5pm.

Room Tip: Avoid fourth floor

stayed here in march 2012. decided to go back in april 2013.
We was all inclusive, and stayed in room 171 first floor over looking the pool (same rooom as last year.

room was tidy, cleaned most days.
food was good.
staff was friendly
lots of new things this year, spa , games room . and lots of day time activities going on. JOHN on the annimation team was fantastic!! :D

would recomend this hotel to others, just one thing, it does get noisey at night with people coming back from the strip etc. but dont let this put you off. Whereever you stay your going to get noise!!

We have just come back from our second stay at the columbus and the was even better then the first time.
When we arrived we was booked in very quickly and went all inc again and was put in a lovley room on the fourth floor over looking the bar. The room was very clean and tidy and fresh towels and beds was made everyday.
The hotel was very busy but getting drinks at the bar only took a few minutes and the bar staff was very friendly.
The food in the restaurant was even better from the first visit and there was always something there to cater for every ones needs.

The hotel is positioned in a good place and the main strip is only a 5min walk form the hotel.
The are some lovely palaces to eat out and meany shops to look round (womenfor you)

We met some nice peope at the hotel during our stay including a women called Dianne who had traveled on her own and looked just like Madge off benidorm so by the end of the week every one in the hotel was calling her "madge"and some lads from newark and shropshire.

Alot of reveiws have said that the hotel is taken over by stag parties, this may of been the case at the start of the year but the hotel has now taken note of this and has clamped down oft his.
i watch the hotel throw out a group of 10 people (been there 4 hours) for been loud drunk and starting fights on people. the hotel will not tolerate this and there is a police present there and was delt with quickly.

will defo go back again

Stayed at the Columbus 18th June- 25th for a girls holiday. Arrived at around 2 in the afternoon and had to wait a good half and hour to check in although the women behind the desk (Bianca) was very helpful. Stayed all inclusive so room had recently been refurbished and was clean on arrival there was four to a room so was cramped but the sofa bed was comfortable. Air-con and safety deposit boxes very cheap, 30 euros for air con and you get that back at the end of your stay and 25 euros for safe, with 10 back at the end. Room was cleaned once a day although we had problems with the maid leaving a shortage of towels, also remember to put the bin in the middle of the floor as for us it wasn't changed otherwise.
Pool area was good size but you have to get down early to bag a sun bed, we normally did when we come back at night! The bar was nice although the staff were rude drinks were awful as they used local spirits, although would recommend peach schnapps, lemonade and blackcurrant (takes the taste away)! Also there was only one cocktail on all inclusive which was poor any other you have to pay for (2.50 euros)
Restaurant was average, staff on the whole okay but choice of food was limited. Little for children or fussy eaters, main dishes were either pork or veal, and just a word of warning check salad before you eat it for any unwanted guests!
All in all hotel was in a good location, close to the veronicas strip although make sure you know where you want to go before hand to save the hassle from PR's! For us it wasn't worth going all inclusive as we mostly went out for the cocktails etc. but clean and modern which is all you want.

Not toooo sure where to start!!

Arrived at hotel and was greeted by quite a rude man that said we where on level 4 with no instructions to where the lifts where or anything!! We got to our room n was actually surprised! A nice size and was very clean, our balcony looked over the busy road but we didn't mind as we could see the beach!

In the morning of our first day we went down to the pool to catch some rays.... This was at 9 o clock! There was not one sun bed remaining!!! At 9 o clock!! We had to sunbathe on the floor!!!! We where determined not to let this spoil our first day!! We soon realised that u have to get up at around 5.30 to have a chance of a sun bed!!! It's a joke!!!!

Every night of our whole stay we was disturbed by drunken men and women.... 4 o clock, 5 o clock n so on! They where setting the fire alarms off, shouting, fighting! It was horrendous n we used to dread the night time!!!!

The location is perfect though and there are some lovely places to eat and a little supermarket 100 yards away!!

Iv been to all the Canary Islands but Tenerife is the worse island I have ever been tooooo!! If you have children and older people think twice about coming to this hotel as its for the younger crowd!!!

Me and my mates stayed here 10 till 17 of June. The room was nice and spacious as was the balcony. It was also serviced everyday, with fresh towels. Pool area was great, nice bar area. Slight down side was the lack of sun beds, but it forced us to get up earlier and enjoy a nice refreshing swim after a hard nights drinking. This place is perfect if your coming here for a lads holiday, All bars and restaurants are minutes away. And there is a taxi rank just round the corner. Reception also let us keep the room till later as we were leaving at night for about £25. All in all good place

Room Tip: When asking for a late checkout, you have to ask on the day of departure. Come down nice and early a...
