This was the most awesome place to stay. Great service all the staff Rooms were nice, clean and mine had a sliding glass window to the outside. Food was fantastic. Manager made concessions for our military unit opening up the dining room very early in the morning as we had to be out of there by 630 am. Two meals... More

If you want a typical Costa type holiday then the Hotel Colon is not for you. Spanish is the main language although we came across one or two staff members who liked to try English The beach which is approx. 150mtrs from the Hotel, is crisp and clean and the sea is beautifully clean but there is is only one...

The suite was ok, small, basic however the bathroom and drains on the terrace stank!!!! It was horrible. The Jacuzzi on the terrace had broken but they... More

The hotel staff were rude, indifferent and unhelpful. Very few of the advertised facilities were actually operational (ie the spas, pool bar). The reception area was dirty and poorly maintained and the food/drinks service in the dining room abysmal.

Eight friends spent 5 nights at the hotel over the Xmas period. The food was excellent and the facilities were second to none. There was entertainment (games) during the day and music in the evenings. Our trip was fully inclusive and was exceptional value for money. The area is unspoilt and in the summer would be wonderful for families. There... More
