My friends and I returned from Tenerife yesterday and we had a lovely stay. I would say the only thing we felt needed replacing were the grey worn out towels.

Very friendly staff and plenty of choice on the buffet style meals. We had half board.

I've written in detail about this hotel before and having had a quick scan over some reviews I thought I'd update mine.

Firstly the staff are lovely especially the two entertainments staff . Bar staff are very friendly, yes new people are restricted to 2 drinks at a time but once they get to know you and realise you are not a numpty they will let you get the drinks for the group. Biggest choice I've had of drinks ever at an all inclusive bar.

Just make sure you book All inc. as these are the upgraded rooms with the wide screen tv's etc.. Rooms are cleaned every day and if you leave your towels in the bath they will also be changed every day.

The manager is NOT grumpy if you make the effort to say hello. A smile goes a long way you know. Food is always hot and plenty of choice. My girlfriend is coeliac and had no problems. It is good standard 3 star. You want 5 star then book somewhere else and pay for it !!

The sun can get a bit shady but only down one end and in the main summer seasons this is not a problem plus there is a large sun terrace on the roof and through the arch in building two a big sun area with its own pool that gets the heat all day any season.

Only issue is the sunbed one. I think a simple solution would be to store the sunbeds in the old gym room or just all stacked together down one end. You could simply then go up to a member of staff( possibly the lifeguard who is there all day) who would then issue you a sunbed each for the day. This would stop the problem of people sending one person down at 8am to put towels on 8 sunbeds!!!!

We have booked in for our 5th visit in the middle of May and can't wait.

I went to Tenerife, in august 2012 with my parents; my dad booked the hotel through Thomson. It was an absolute s*** hole! We arrived on the night to find other tourists slumped outside the entrance, and walking through into the pool area it looked like chav central. In all honesty it was like having a first hand experience in the inbetweeners movie. The whole time i was there i only seen one of the hotel staff, all i can say is he wasn't the politest person I've met. We checked in and then waited a further 5 minutes for the lift to come; the children in the hotel were playing in them at 11 o'clock at night! while their parents were drunk outside. It was appalling. When we got in our room, my white socks turned to black in less than 2 minutes. The floor was unclean and the room had no air conditioning! We had to open the doors onto the balcony and when we did our room became infested with cockroaches. I myself went out onto the balcony and one of the other tourists had a lazer pen pointing at me, it was horrendous. We couldn't sleep at all because of the noise, the cockroaches and the lack of air. We had to wait up until 8 the following morning until we could see a rep and switch to a different hotel. Then when we were waiting in the lobby we spoke to another woman who was about to check out in an hours time; her and her husbands backs, money and passports had been stolen from their rooms! It's horrendous. I would suggest not going there! Unless you're an idiot or can go without sleep for 7-13 days straight.

Room Tip: Just don't even bother booking.

Me and partner went for our first holiday to Tenerife and we loved it! Columbus was perfect for us, clean rooms, friendly staff, two huge pools! It was in a great location, 15 minute walk to the nearest beach, lots of bars and restaraunts in the area. I have no complaints whatsoever and we would go back again any time!

We stayed here for a week in January, our party consisted of 4adults and a baby aged 14month. We were a wee bit concerned when we read some of the reviews but was pleasantly surprised. The hotel was very clean, staff from reception, bar staff, security were all very friendly. We were on the AI option which was fine for what we paid, the food was ok sometimes repetitive but you get that with any AI. The noise was not as bad as people have written and certainly did not wake the baby which was worrying us most. The location of the hotel is great central to everything. We also visited the SPA which was really nice and reasonably priced.

Room Tip: High floor

Stayed here for 7 days self catering (1 bedroom) at end of January. Note that if you are staying in the self catering apartments they are very tired and all the furniture in our apartment had numerous enounters with white gloss paint which hadn't managed to make them look any brighter, just more chipped and worn looking. Beds were comfy enough and made up daily - changed once during our stay. Towels changed daily bit grey but clean. Although floors wiped over with smelly mop so take some room spray with you. Kitchen had kettle, toaster and temperamental 2 ring hob. Plenty crockery and untensils but no teaspoons.....So many nice places to eat you won't be doing much cooking anyway. 2 stray cockroaches found during our week stay but all in all i didn't see that as an issue.
TV - 1 euro an hour on wall mounted flat screen. Expensive internet at 1 euro for 10 mins but there was an internet cafe down the road 1 euro for an hour (turn left out of hotel)

The main hotel itself is kept very clean and tidy - lots of marble so yes sounds do travel. We had room in reception building facing mountains - lovely view but no sun. Friends of ours had studio overooking pool and had sun all day. in fact the studio was in much better condition than the 1 bed apartment. Looks like there is a plan for decent gym - equipment all in place but not yet open. I didn't take part in any of the night time entertainment but daytime sports seemed good fun - apart from the few AI daytime drinkers.

As a base i'd say this hotel is great location 10-15 mins to Veronicas in one direction or 10-15 heading down towards Safari Centre area. 30-40 to heart of los Christianos and the Sunday Market.
I wouldn't want to stay in these apartments in their current state for more than a week stay but if the price is right i'd gladly return for a weeks break. Perhaps more staff is needed they all looked very busy. And one final thing - i think it might be a bit mad in the height of summer

Room Tip: if SC pool for sun - If AI then not pool
