We Arrived at this hotel 29th of July till 8th aug, after reading all the bad reviews we as a family with a 11 yrs old was dreading going, however on arrival we where greeted by a very pleasent receptionist, who booked us straight in and urged us to go straight for our tea as we'd arrived late on!! The room was small but ample for the 3 of us to sleep shower and change which is all you use your room for, the all inclusive was fine granted did get repetitive after a week but which hotel doesn't unless you book 5 *! All staff where very friendly and there was great entertainment for adult and kids round the pool as well as a nite disco for the children followed by different shows, snake, birds parrots, and dance shows.... As for this hotel being for young and loads of stag and hens round the pool, is not the case at all. Over all this was a really good holiday and we enjoyed the whole experience at the Columbus... Tenerife it's self is a beautiful island and the Columbus is central to everything, including the aqua park, jungle garden which is a great deal on tickets 34 euro for both parks well worth a visit!! The Columbus has 2 great pools with a jaccuzi in the middle, it also had a pool round the back, there is also a hairdressers a spa and a bar on site where after hours you can pay for your drinks, a pizzeria plus an arcade what more do you want???

We thought the hotel was great, it was always clean & tidy, the staff were friendly. Our bedding was made every day and was changed when we asked them too, our towels were also changed everyday. Our room was always clean... The food was lovely, there was a lot of choice for breakfast lunch and dinner..you won't go hungry! A really wonderful stay.

Just returned aug 2014. Overall we had a good time. Ill start with bad points, food ok but can be a bit repetitive after a wk, breakfast was good but other meals seemed to be just pork, if ur a fussy eater its not for you, rooms basic but they are basically for sleeping, maids didnt come in at all for 2 days of our 11 day stay and the one day put a dirty towel we left for laundry back on the towel rail, not swept either, room has a tv but u have to pay a euro per hr, big issue was the sunbeds, people down between 7 30 to 8.00 waiting for sunbedsto be available when they are unlocked at 8.00, by 8.20 they have all been taken, we spotted one family put towels on their beds at 8.00 and they went off and didnt come back till 3.00pm, this was a regular occurence. Good points, staff friendly, 2 nice pools, not far to walk to nightlife and the sea, generally it is a nice hotel in a nice area, we did have a good time and dont let my bad points put u off, a visit to loro parque is a must.

Spent a week here in the self catering half of the hotel. The hotel is basically in two halves. One side is all inclusive and the other seems to be self catering . However on the self catering side the workmen start at 8 o'clock knocking down walls. tiles etc. It's obvious that the self catering side needs updating but I felt that we could have been warned. Still, although the place is a bit dated it's clean enough and served a purpose, even though the whole of our side of the hotel was full of dust. Lets hope the refurbishment is over with soon .

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the main road were very noisy once the rush hour started. Try to avoid rooms o...

Stayed at this hotel a couple of weeks ago and was quite disappointed. We was woke up everyday at 9am but of hotel construction work that was going on throughout the hotel, that we wasn't aware of beforehand. When i put in a complaint and asked to move rooms, the hotel tried to charge me which i refused to pay. when we did move rooms it didnt make one slight bit of difference. There was no air con in the hotel rooms and it was 50 euro to upgrade room each night and 20 euro to hire out a fan each night. There was also no remote for the tv as again you have to pay a charge to hire out the controller.

I would like to inform you that we never begin our building works before 10 am because by law the schedule is from 10 am to 5 pm. Also on our reception we got an information board where all clients can see the charges of any upgrade. About the comment of the charge for a remote control this is not a charge, it is a deposit. At the end of the stay of the client we give it back. In any case, I would like to inform you that the works will be finished in September and I hope to have the opportunity to welcome you again in our hotel and that you can see that the effort has worth it.
