“Better than expected”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

As a couple that have travelled to Tenerife many times, we were a little cautious about staying at the Columbus Aparthotel.
Firstly, it was the cheapest option, secondly, it's location.
I can imagine this to be a lively hotel during the peak season but in February, it was just right. The beds were a little hard but overall we found the hotel to be very clean and tidy with daily maid service from extremely polite staff. The fridge is good and they do ice.
We stayed as self catering guests so cannot review the half board or all inclusive facilities but can say that there is plenty of food and drink options for the paying customer.
The only minus points we found were...the balcony. When sat on the balcony, you cannot see much because of the safety glass...The pools were cold, proper cold, although it was February and the amount of shade around the pool area. Although this was not a problem for us, it could be in the night of summer.
As for the location, there are busy roads on three sides of the hotel and while these were not a problem for us, the constant sirens from ambulances going to the hospital across the road did get a bit annoying.
All things considered, I would return to this hotel again. For the price, it is excellent value for money.

Room Tip: There are two blocks, only one has air con

Read the reviews which come good and bad...Went all inclusive so we spent most days in the hotel..The drinks aren't the strongest which is a good thing as the weather was poor for 3 days of our week..Don't listen to reports of misereable bar staff they are great ,especially Fernando and Elisabet..Great location pretty central..Food not great a bit repeative especially the meats and fish.Taxi rank 50 mts down the road to take you to Los Cristianos etc. Irish bar The Chieftain around the corner by the taxi rank and good entertainment in The Jersey Cow which is near the taxi rank.The Patch is a10 minute walk and is also filled with bars and restaurants for all ages and needs.We were a party of 8 recycled teenagers who on the whole enjoyed on week in Tenerife though the weather could have been better

Great location, you can walk it to the strip in no time. All inclusive isn't that great - only one drink at a time and you have to tip a little to get served faster. TV costs per hour, and internet is not that great (very expensive too) - we needed it to watch a boxing match at the time.
The receptionist men and women were very helpful. Opposite the hotel you can find various supermarkets and stores to buy alcohol, ice etc. Lovely little hotel.

We stayed at this hotel (room only) from March 1st, Our room was adequate, just. It appeared at first sight to be a normal bedroom with a sink a hotplate (2) and the basic utensils,plus and some storage cupboards.We did not drink in the hotel the bar area was always very busy, but there was a small bar away from the main one for customers paying cash.There is entertainment everyday of varying kinds which we cannot comment on.Internet access is available at 1euro for 10 minutes, across the road from the hotel 1 hour 1 euro. My partner and I have travelled the world over 50+ years and have NEVER had to pay for TV, needless to say we did not take advantage of this offer.The room maid service was reasonable bedding and towels were changed once during our stay,the towels were clean but greyish.On the friday of our stay one of two lifts stopped working, on saturday the other stopped as well, this stayed until monday.

Room Tip: the hotel is 2 blocks which run roughly east to west, which means one side of the block get all the...

The Columbus comprises two parallel blocks six storeys high: you only have a 3-1 chance of getting a sunny room overlooking the pool. The bedroom was large, clean and adequately furnished BUT there were no drawers for clothes,the TV cost €1 per hour, the pillows are hard and the standard of cleaning was basic. The balcony was quite large BUT never got the sun. The bathroom was a reasonable size and the shower worked well BUT the towels were worn and no shower gel etc was supplied. The hotel lounge/lobby area was spacious BUT had all the atmosphere of railway station. There is only one bar in the hotel where the staff are friendly and super efficient BUT, because it opens on to the pool, all drinks are served in plastic containers, even in the evening when the pool is shut! There is a large pool/ sunbathing area adequately stocked with sunbeds BUT only one third of the area gets sunshine and the twin towers create a wind tunnel so cool breezes blow over the area much of the time and the pools never warm up. There are also only 11 tables outside the poolside bar, which is not enough for potentially 600 guests, and there are no sunbrollies or small tables to put next to your sunbed. The food in the restaurant is plentiful BUT very repetitious and unimaginative. There is also no dress code in the restaurant. I always wondered where people who eat exclusively at McDonalds, Burger King and KFC (i.e. folk who can't be trusted with crockery or cutlery) went for their holidays: judging by the odd table manners and peculiar ways of using cutlery by many of the diners this is the place! Finally, there is entertainment throughout the evening but most of this is not worth going to, the exceptions being the Brasilian show and Sue.

Room Tip: Rooms in the same block as the lobby facing the pool are the best as they are quiet and get the sun.

Very noisy, dated.
Cleaning standards could be improved.
New towels needed, bar staff friendly.
Not value for money.
Would not return.
Stayed s/c so can't comment on hotel food. Did have snacks they were okay.
Hotel is on a slight incline which might not be suitable for some.
