“Council flat chic”
Reviewed 12 July 2005

Could not wait to go back home as soon as we arrived at this 70's style dump. the hotel looked like a council block of flats. The corridors even had cctv cameras on them the room looked like a ymca. Could not even stay round the pool area as it looked like a buttlins gone wrong.The evening entertainment was no more than a cheesey keyboard player if you call that entertainment We went half board for the week so breakfast and evening meal was included, We eat at this hotel once as the food was much to be desired, breakfast left over reheated.The only thing we did do at this hotel was try to sleep as the noise at this place kept us awake till early hours of the morning. Would not go back to this hotel even if it was given to me as a gift i felt more depressed when i got home than i did before we went.

Reviewed 22 June 2005

We stayed at the Columbus for a week in June 2005.

On the positive side, the rooms are spacious, clean and well equipped. The friendliness of the reception staff and security guards is a bit hit-and-miss, they can be very nice or very abrupt and nasty depending on their mood. The pool is a decent size but sun loungers are in short supply. The location is pretty good, just a 5-10 min walk to all the bars/clubs (if that's your kind of thing), with plenty of cheap restaurants and shops scattered near the hotel. The nightly entertainment is of a high standard with good variety, but is aimed mainly at families.

On the negative side, drinks at the bar were dear - they cost about the same as an expensive pub in Britain. If you go self catering, DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT, pay the 12 Euros for the buffet dinner in the hotel. It was disgusting "school canteen" food with very little choice, absolutely NOTHING for vegetarians except a plate full of boiled potatoes, and there are no drinks included - you even have to pay extra for water! So after you've added your drinks you're looking at 30 Euros for 2 people, when you could have a far better meal for half this price from one of the many restaurants down the road.

Overall this hotel is a good place to use as a base, but get all your food and drink elsewhere.
