I am a 21 year old female, my partner is a 23 year old male.
when booking this hotel I checked trip advisor and found brilliant comments, therefore me and my partner were excited about our chosen holiday. weeks before arriving I decided to check trip advisor again to show my mom some pictures and I came across some terrible reviews about bed bugs and noise from the hotel, explaining that the hotel should be 18-30's ... I was horrified. however I was told to ignore the reviews and enjoy myself as everyone expects different things.
on arriving at the hotel we saw that it was very clean, the hotel receptionist was incredibly grumpy and did not explain things to us well, he was also speaking In Spanish to other people while dealing with us which I felt was extremely rude.
when we found our room we were pleased with what it looked like .... then ... my partner sat on his bed and it threw him up into the air, his bed was broken and remained broken for the remainder of the whole stay. whenever he moved in his sleep the bed would throw him around. on our first night we were woken several times by groups of girls screaming in the hall way to each other and slamming doors shut, I was then woken twice by two couples having you know what - not fun!
Tenerife itself is a beautiful place to visit, we had fun times at the local bars and siam park.
the food at Columbus is standard - very basic and repetitive all week, we ate out several times.
the beds were not clean - NOT CLEAN!!!! I was always itchy in my bed and then one night I found a bug crawling on me. each night after this I checked my bed thoroughly for bugs. the sheets were strained and smelled and I did not enjoy sleeping in them. then me and my partner came out in small red bumps all over our body - which we discovered are bed bug bites! I was horrified and disgusted - I had previously read reviews on this however just felt it was people moaning. now I know that this hotel isn't as clean as it appears, it is dirty and smelly and crawling with bed bugs.
I would never return to this hotel and the other couples we spoke to said the same thing.
please do not be put off about visiting Tenerife as I would definitely return again, however just to a different hotel - ONE WHICH IS CLEAN AND DOES NOT LEAVE ME AND MY PARTNER COVERED IN DISCUSTING RED BITES - FROM BED BUGS!!!!!
vile place to stay - 100% do not recommend to anyone!!!
