We got a special deal for this hotel so taking that into account we were quite forgiving of things that we otherwise would have complained about. We booked two sea view rooms and we were on the sixth floor and the view from the rooms was splendid we had a very large double room with a very large terrace. The... More

We decided to stay at this hotel after receiving an email from the hotel group saying they had a special promotion to launch the reopening of the hotel after refurbishment. We were disappointed to find very little refurbishment had been done. The hotel seems to be stuck in a timewarp from the 60's/70's. The whole outside of the hotel badly... More

Nice Hotel and what I feel was good value for money. The staff, in particularly the front office were very friendly and helpful! Would recommend the hotel to friends and family! Platja d'aro is a smallish town but great location for a relaxing beach holiday

Worth the money. It is a bit outdated but well maintained. Lovely staff willing to help. Recommended. Probably better in June than in August. Not for you if you consider yourself cool / trendy. The beach is beautiful and big and there are nice walks around.

We stayed in Columbus Hotel from 7th of September for 9 days. The best rooms are with a sea view. We were very pleased with our holidays. Fantastic!!!! Very clean hotel, friendly and helpful staff, no complains what so ever. Maybe they could change breakfast meniu from time to time, but that's not an issue for me. Would definitely recommend...

This hotel needs updating. It's a shame as it could be a lovely hotel as it's in a perfect location. The hall ways are smelly, the rooms could be cleaner. The breakfast not very appetising , I wouldn't stay here again.

I'm a loyal Trip Advisor user - can't understand how I missed the reviews of this lamentable hotel. Awful rooms - small, dark, furnished in the seventies, nothing like the promo photos - depressing public facilities. Our sea view balcony? Directly opposite beach bar and stage. No maid service for 3 days but, when I called to say we'd left... More

It appears they stopped the clock thirty years ago for this hotel. Old building, smelly hallways, bad restaurant (By that I mean it had a very limited variety for breakfast and you had to get there early because by 10:30 it was all gone). I had never seen a room so old and dirty, not even as a student traveller.... More
