Location was super. On the beach and few minutes walk to all the shopping and restaurants. Parking was very expensive even in the hotel private car park and most ridicoulous thing was that they had every night some band or disco just outside our bedroom. It was so lud that u could not hear even tv in your room and... More

This hotel has a good location, directly in front of the beach. It has a decent pool and direct connection to the beach. The hotel has a lot of facilities, but is definately outdated. The rooms are old as well. The staff is friendly and will help where they can. We were given a sea view room without asking, which... More

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 It is a bit outdated but well maintained.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...
