Colon II Apartments
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 6, 2010

I've been to the Colon 2 twice now and both times loved every moment I've spent there. The rooms are extra clean & the staff are very friendly. The rooms match all requirments needed. It's in great location to the beach, shops, bars, restaurants and amusement places. The pool and pool side is always very clean. I'd recommend this holiday to anyone.

What a lovely surprise! The apartments are in the centre close to night life but as soon as you walk through the reception it's an oasis of calm. The rooms and surrounding areas were very clean - it seemed someone was always cleaning somewhere.Would definately recommend a room overlooking swimming pool which again was cleaned twice a day. Cafe at pool served basic but good snacks at reasonable price.Also there was a free library where you could get plenty reading material.All in all excellent value for money!

Having just returned after three weeks over Xmas and New Year I can confirm the previous comments as these apartments are superb. One could eat ones dinner off the floor as they are so clean, not that I would of course!!!.
Kitchen area did not matter too much as we ate out every night but it was well equipped and spotless.
Location is excellent being very close to all the bars and restaurants and the beach is only a short walk away. Or for a half an hour stroll, Los Cristianos is a flat walk along the costal path.
The only slightly down side of it all were the Chinese girls that pester you on the beach all day and even awaken you if you do not respond to their request for you to have a massage. It can be annoying but obviously not to everyone.
A brilliant holiday was made even better by constant sunshine and wonderful people.

Positive: excellent location, very clean, good service, would go there again outside summer.
Negative: no air con
Realise it is a 3 star but air con is needed in summer months. It was hot enough in Dec.
Got bus from airport and 10 mins walk to apartment 2.25 euro's each on bus whereas 25 euros in taxi. Buses run about very hour except sundays.
We booked through Thompsons and go 3 nights before xmas for £90 - bargain. The kitchen is lovely and clean as is the rest of the apartment.

Have stayed in Tenerife many many times but have never even seen these Apartments even though must have walked by dozens of times.Reason being it looks like it is just a coffee shop but entrance is through here where rception is leading to complex in a surprisingly quiet garden/pool area where apartments are located.These apartments are among the best we have stayed in and very good value.Being centally located is a big plus and yet so peaceful and well run/administered.Staff are very helpful and rooms spotlessly maintained.Rarely go back to same place twice as always look for best offers but this place will be high on my list for my next visit.

Stayed here at end of November with bf ( we're both late twenties) have been to Tenerife quite a few times and stayed in 3*SC and also 5 * all inclusive so have seen a range of different types of accommodation in Tenerife. The apartment was spacious, kitchen well equipped, balcony a nice size and was very clean. The apartment was cleaned every day however towels were only changed every 2-3 days. as most people have already mentioned the pool is salt water which I didn’t mind - was very cold tho! We went during off peak season and so getting a sun-lounger was ok however I would imagine that during peak season it could be hard to get space. Also due to the position of the pool by lunchtime about 1/3 of the sunbathing area is already in the shade and by 4pm almost all of it is in the shade - so sun worshippers beware this may not be for you. The restaurant attached to the hotel - Mama Rossa gives 10% discount to residents - I would definitely recommend that you eat there at least once - the food is really fantastic and although it is a little bit more expensive than some of the other nearby restaurants - it is really worth it - I highly recommend the fillet steak.
Location - it is 5 min walk from veronicas but its far enough away not to hear the noise. Its also about a 5-10 min walk to the beach. Location wise its really nice, we walked round the coastal path to Los Cristianos and back most days.
I will definitely stay here again off season - maybe not in peak season.

We booked to stay at the Colon 2 through Thomson after reading all the good reviews on this website.

The apartments are situated in a very convenient location, 5 mins from the black sand beach and about 10 mins from the white sand beach. If you go right out of the apartments you will reach the veronicas in about 5 minutes and the louder bars, if you go left you will reach a lot of the english / irish pubs, so there's pretty much something for everyone.

The apartments are very clean, there are always cleaners around all times of day. If you fancy a lie in, they will come in later in the day and they will even do your washing up! The towels and bed linen were changed at least twice in a week.

The pool is lovely, although the salt water takes a bit of getting used to. The pool side bar is very reasonably priced with a wide range of food and the staff are very friendly. In the evening Mamma Rosa restaurant is open, it's a tad pricey, but very nice quality if you fancy a slightly posher meal out. The bar in the front also does drinks and food throughout the day, including ice creams of about 20 flavours!! Sadly we couldn't try them all in the week!

There are also a couple of computers in the reception if you need to check your emails etc.

I would recommend booking excursions throught the hotel as they are a lot cheaper than Thomson. We went up Mount Tiede and also to Siam Park - two really good events.

Overall we were really pleased with Colon 2. The only bad points are; there's no air conditioning in the room, however we slept with the balcony door ajar and this served us fine. The shower also had a tendancy to go from hot to cold about once a minute, but this may have just been our apartment. Lastly, lots of people reserved sunbeds every morning and then disappeared for several hours. This didn't really bother us as we just went to the beach, however it must have upset some of the other guests.
