Returned from weeks half board 15th June. Hotel clean, staff friendly and helpful, room was very nice surprise with kitchen/living room and separate bedroom. (kitchen had complementary washing up liquid, cloth and scourer and bottle of water in fridge) We found the beds were very comfortable and slept very well. Food was very nice and varied. Fantastic power shower with constant hot water. The area is on a mountain with local shops restaurants and chemist all within a short walk. The views are spectacular and is even more spectacular at night with the city lights on.

Room Tip: We faced the town with sea views - Spectacular

I stayed here with a friend for a week and had a wondeful time. The rooms and complex in general were very clean and the staff were friendly. The happy hour every evening was great value also. The only complaint would be the evening entertainment...or lack thereof. Anything they did have was very old fashioned in nature and reminiscent of a package holiday from the early 90s (cheesy keyboard music etc), which in turn meant there was no atmosphere in the bar in the evening so we never stayed there. Apart from this however, we had a wondeful time.

Just got back from Colina Mar 13th June 2014 may i Just say thanks to Oscar the barman who was friendly and very helpful, i read a review before the holiday saying the bar staff were misrable and would not communicate this was not so as Oscar and remmy were very obliging and you could share a joke with them especially Oscar a young lookalike of Sylvester Stalone. the entertainment could be improved and the animation team who we rarely seen, the rooms and the pool and surounding areas were always kept clean and the food was ok. If i had any chritisizm it would be to make the bbq as part of the all inclusive as noone took the option of payinf half price for it when they could get their meal for free. Apart from that great holiday.

We stayed for 1 week at the colina mar, all inclusive.

THE HOTEL is on top of a hill, so views are spectacular. However the walk to and from is pretty steep to say the least!! If its a quiet week away youre after, its perfect. If you enjoy going out and walking... perhaps not puerto rico... as it is rather small and out of the way. The hotel is spotless... staff constantly cleaning everywhere. Staff are fantastic, very friendly and extremely helpful... they make you feel right at home.

ALL INCLUSIVE : The all inclusive drinks are great. They are served in chilled glasses at the bar but plastic by pool. Beer wine and a selection of spirits. If you fancy something different such as a cocktail... you get it half price at the bar!
The food is average. You never go hungry but a little repetitive. By the end of the week we decided to eat out... restaurants near by are great and well priced. But you certainly get value for money alone on the drinks on offer all inclusive.

THE ROOM was great!! Well equipped if staying self catering and the balcony had fantastic views. The shower was the best I have ever had abroad... It had great power and always hot. Only one slight complaint was the bed is rock solid. We did not know you could request a memory foam top before arrival until the end of our stay so definitely request one!!

THE POOL area is very clean. Theres plenty of sun loungers so no need to rush down in the morning. Both pools are great but I recommend you stay at the quiet pool if youre wanting peace to sunbathe, the main pool does get loud.

THE ENTERTAINMENT is really the only complaint. It was very poor at night. Don't bother planning your night around it... I dont want to be rude to the acts by going into detail but the hotel really has to change it if they want guests to stay with them in the evening.

OVERALL the hotel is a great stay.
The staff are fantastic and we had a super week.
Thanks again to the great staff. Superb hospitality.
If its a budget, quiet sunshine holiday youre after... Colina Mar is for you.

Accommodation
Cheap and cheerful. The maids cleaned regularly and changed the towels and even did our washing up. The room was a decent size for the two of us and we found the beds comfortable but rather firm. Nice view over Puerto Rico bay which we enjoyed. We were self catering so didn't actually use the hotel facilities such as bar, restaurant or entertainment. Hotel shop was pretty good, had all the essentials.
The pools were nice and had plenty of sunbeds during our visit. There are feral cats around the pool area. One had a very badly damaged nose which was bleeding. We told the chap on reception but he did not seem too concerned as they do not belong to the hotel. It upset us to see the state of the poor cat :(

Location
This hotel is at the very top of a very steep hill, but only a 5 min walk from the Europa Centre which has plenty of bars/restaurants and tat shops and a good little supermarket (Hyper Dino). We visited Bar Bacoa on two occasions and had a really nice, reasonably priced meal plus we went on a night out there and the host Gary Gob Stopper really made the night a lot of fun. Very good choice variety of restaurants in this complex but we preferred to go down into the bay to check out the restaurants along the sea front.

Puerto Rico itself is nice enough but there is not a lot to do there. Plus, everytime we went into the main resort we got accosted by marketing people trying to get us to visit a holiday company who wanted us to part with thousands of pounds. They will offer you a free boat trip or camel ride but you have to spend 90 mins talking to a rep who tries to give you the hard sell.

Beach there is nice, plenty of boat rides on offer and loads of restaurants which all seem to be of a good standard.

We visited the market in Mogan on Friday (as we had a free boat trip courtesy of the marketing people). The boat trip was nice and Mogan was a very pleasant place to visit...we got some very cheap watches as holiday souvenirs.

Overall...
we really enjoyed our stay, weather was great. We would have liked more activities to do. We booked with Thomas Cook and we had no rep at our hotel...hence, we felt a little cut off not knowing what was going on in the area. Weather was great, it was low 20's in April which was plenty warm enough.

This was my first ever trip to the Canaries and it was also me and my girlfriend's first trip abroad. We wanted somewhere lively but not obscene, so we opted for Colina Mar in Gran Canaria. For the money we paid, we couldn't have chosen better.

The aparment style rooms were good. Cool and spacious and the beds were very comfortable. Ours even had memory foam mattress toppers. The room was immaculate and the views over Puerto Rico were super as well. The staf were all very friendly and helpful and the hotel is only a stones throw away from a small shopping centre where there are some good restaurants and bars. To get down to the main resort is a 15-20 minute walk down quite a steep hill. We only walked back up once as the taxis are only €4 to take you back up to the hotel.

The only draw backs of the hotel were the main pool area was rather small and a little cramped and the showers did not have a high enough rim round the edge, so water would sometimes pour out onto the tiled bathroom floor. There are also feral cats that patrol the pool area looking for scraps, but the staff do chase them away and they don't come near the people too often.

I'd defintely go back to Colina Mar as it's a good all round hotel, catering for couples and families.

Room Tip: Any room not above the main pool or bar. The higher the floor the better.

First time to the Canaries! So glad we chose this holiday! Beautiful surroundings, friendly people and amazing weather!!

Room- had everything we needed.

We spent our holiday at the small pool- as we just wanted to relax away from the kids club and music.

Puerto Rico- is great but VERY VERY British, I wasn't expecting it but dealt with it. The ONLY criticism I have- is the PRs are a nightmare!! sometimes rude! Yes we are a young couple but it doesn't mean we want to go into EVERY single bar.. I felt like I was in Marmaris in Turkey! AWFUL!

Food great and beer very cheap.

We would recommend the drag act organised by Thomsons- great night!

Great holiday and the Colina Mar was fab- we will be going back :)
