We had booked only that morning, so were too late for a sea view room. Decided to leave Playa del Ingles and spend a day or two in the capital. Our window looked onto a concrete shaft and the room next door. Helpful staff. Nice size rooms with twin beds.

My husband and I were booked on a cruise of the Canary Islands and arrived in Gran Canaria a few days early. Neither of us had been to Gran Canaria before. I booked us into Colon Playa Apartments from the internet and I am so glad I did! We arrived late at night to a near-deserted airport, but the taxi... More

As everyone has said, this hotel is in a perfect location. The door leads on to the promenade and then a huge expanse of golden sand of the beach We choose a Sea View room, and emailed to ensure that this included a balcony - which we received a quick positive reply. The apartment itself was basic at best but... More

I visited Las Palmas this month for a quick shopping trip and Colon Playa was my only choice given its excellent location. The hotel is very basic, infact when I first entered I was slightly disappointed. But once I entered the rooms, they were spacious and had a good view of the beach. The shopping centres were walking distance and... More

Huge terrace with views of the sea and headlands, a table, three chairs, two recliners and an apparatus to hang your clothes out to dry. A sunshade or canopy would be nice. During the daytime, there can be buskers nearby but at night there is only the sound of the sea. Apartment spacious with a table, chairs, desk, tv, safe... More

Great value for money! No negatives on service, room and cleanliness. Location right straight on Cantaras beach. Minus 1: I didn't like quality of mattress, I believe they try to protect it with extra layer of synthetic, which doesn't make it comfortable Minus 2: location quite noisy during nighttime. Cars, people, promenade and beach cleaning, something is going on there... More

We arrived to be told by the friendly daytime receptionist that he was 'sorry, but this is the only room we have'. When we got to the room I saw what he meant and why he was apologetic ! The... More
