“Fantastic holiday !”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

We went from 28th March -4th April and were quite worried after reading the reviews. We were pleasantly surprised by the hotel and the overall experience. The receptionists were friendly and efficient as were all if the staff we encountered. The rooms were clean and spacious and the beds were much better than other hotels we have stayed at. As a vegetarian there wasn't a lot of choice at lunch and dinner but the soups and salads were always good. Breakfast was really nice, there was a lot to choose from and rarely a que. The pools were freezing but that's to be expected for this time of year. Siam park is great, well worth the money. The wifi was really good and it was free!

We arrived back from Tenerife this morning 7th - 17th April family Thomas Cook, 4K all inclusive of 5, 2 adults and 3 children 6, 11, 15. We always book our holiday for a shared experience, but you expect to be together; Sadly on arrival at hotel and although we were expecting to stay in 2 rooms as larger rooms were not available. Unbelievable even tough requesting because of the younger children we were divided in two separate hotel blocks and the twin room was with all the stag and hen parties coming in all hrs meaning that whichever child was unlucky enough to stay with me, there was noise all night in block with reception. We asked to change 3 times but was denied bluntly, only if we upgraded for x amount of Euros. This meant we always had the looming whose next dilemia hanging over us; Food not the best, with Salad bar and meat/fish bar, but no pizza etc for the fussy or kids and no separate kids bar which is a first for us; be aware No slush for kids unless paid extra as outside of deal, meaning on a hot day who could spend 15 Euros on additional fees; All beverage hot and cold served in small plastic cups (max 2 per customer), so the groups lay siege to the bar area meaning a delay or bad language when queing evening Entertainment mainly aimed at very young kids, although Charlie Chaplin was fantastic and Wi Fi available if not slow and pools good but cold, although kids love it. daily interactive games around the pool and John the organiser and kids club were fantastic for my 6 year old; My score out of 10 would be 5.0 (3 points down due to room locations) and we will not go back again. Did meet some lovely families there which we may meet again, but one definitely for the scrap heap not book in our opinion;

Room Tip: Rooms on B block away from reception, larger and quieter; If travelling as a family of 5 make sure y...

Family of seven just returned from fun holiday at Columbus Aparthotel. Friendly staff, clean large rooms and good entertainment for kiddies ranging from 2-16. All of us had great time on all inclusive basis. Food had good range for adults and kiddies. Pool was very clean. Whole hotel kept spotless actually. Kids club at 11-12.30 and 2.30-4.00 so a couple of hours rest. Night entertainment was good. Kids loved kids disco and shows although the bird shows at 11.30 was a bit late for two year old ! Close to beaches - short walk to Playa de las Americas and Los Cristinanos. Cheaper last minute holiday. Overall great value for money. Hoping to return in Summer 2014.

Room Tip: We were on First Floor facing pool which were good rooms ( 173, 179 and 181) 179 had bath. Lower f...

After booking this holiday and then reading the reviews I can tell you I was worried about staying here! But when we arrived the reception area looked lovely and the lady who checked us in was very friendly so it was off on the right foot. When we went up to are room it was littler than expected but it woul be okay us we did not plan much time in the room. The food was nice with a choice at all times we were all inclusive so we were lucky and te food was always different. The staff were really friendly and always spoke to you. The pools were a little chilly but you soon got used to it and warmed up in them!! Would stay at this hotel again.

Booked this hotel very last minute for me and my two children (7&4). I didn't read the reviews until after I had booked and was very worried as some of them were terrible. On arrival the reception was clean and well maintained and staff were friendly, we had a swift check in.

On entering our room I was pleasantly surprised. The room was basic but clean and had a huge balcony. There was a pretty decent hairdryer, so no need to take your own. There was also a pay per view TV, 1 euro for 1 hour, I did this one day for the children but the only kids channels were in spanish...but who goes on holiday to watch TV!? So not a major issue. We were half board so were staying in the twin rooms on one side of the hotel, I'm not sure what the apartments for self catering are like but i got the impression they weren't very good.

The food was a bit hit and miss. Breakfast was always fine, with the usual fry up, cereals, pancakes etc...Evening meal was not as good. Some odd combinations of meat/sauce and no food catered to children. Every hotel i have been to previously have burgers, pizza etc for children but there was nothing here so my youngest who is very fussy ended up with only chips most evenings. Also there is no drink included with the evening meal you have to pay for this separately.

The hotel provide daytime and evening entertainment. Cheesy but fun, the animation team try their best to get everyone involved but will back off if you don't want to join in. each evening started with a mini disco and game for the children and then was followed by some sort of show or adult game (i.e. snake show, eagle show, bingo, live singers etc).

The hotel itself is fairly well maintained, pools are cleaned thoroughly everyday and my children enjoyed them although they were a little cold for me at this time of year! We didn't spend an awful lot of time in the hotel during the day as we were out and about visiting local attractions. The location of the hotel is in a good spot in las americas and only a short walk away from Cristianos and Adeje.

Overall we had a good stay, we met some lovely people, had great weather and enjoyed a lot of what tenerife had to offer. Would definitely return to Tenerife and would return to this hotel if I got it at the right price.

Room Tip: I think the half board/all inclusive rooms are of much higher quality than the self catering apartme...

Just had a week all inclusive at the Columbus.Plenty of choice at mealtimes although most of it not to my liking.Rooms were large and spotless very good maid service.Bar staff excellant and very helpful all in all very good value for money for what we paid.Good location for the many bars and restaurants in the area and ideally placed for us as we were at Soul in the Sun at Vivos for the week.Would stay again next year but only if we get the holiday for a similar price.
