“Great place to stay, excellent location!”
Reviewed December 7, 2012 via mobile

A group of 6 of us stayed here for a week from 19th November, although the weather wasn't great all week we made the most of it

The actual location is great just off the main strip but still close enough to all local amenities which was great.

The apartments themselves were very spacious and lovely and clean, only complaints would be in need of new beds and sofas as very dated but bearable, it was also very useful having the welcome pack of tea, coffee etc for when you arrive.

The pool was small and rather cold, I suppose to be expected at that time of the yet, but served its purpose. Plenty of sun loungers great sun trap only thing missing would be a nice little bar.

Overall a great place to stay, although very quiet due to the time of the year, would definitely go back in the summer

We have just returned from 11 nights in the Columbus apartments & have already booked to go back again. The apartments are spacious, well furnished & spotless & the pool area is perfect for relaxing with your book. Bill, Cath & Pete are always around should you have any problems & nothing is too much trouble for them. We have been visiting PDC for years & have stayed in many apartments round & about this area but will definitely not go past the Columbus in future. I think our only problem in future will be making sure we can get booked in as with the great service you receive & the excellent position, I'm sure it won't be long before everyone is trying to book these apartments. Thanks also to Sharon who makes the booking of the apts so easy & has gone out of her way to ensure we got booked in for our next trip.

Room Tip: Ground floor apartments are great for easy access to the pool but 1st floor apartment have beautiful...

Small, friendly, private, great position, no holiday companies and no towels on sunbeds. My 2nd stay my sisters about 9th stay they return every year. Nice private location near to everything, this time we had a refurbished apartment which was lovely, large flat screen TV and plenty of SKY English channels (actually never saw a local channel), WiFi. Highly recommended if you want away from the holiday company impersonal chaos. Only euros 15.00 for a taxi from the airport, just a short stroll from beach, supermarket, shops, restaurants and bars on the front. Everyone we meet here returns year after year, great value for money.

just returned home after spending six weeks at the columbus what brilliant apartments they are and the location is superb. The hosts Bill and Lynne did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable as did all the other guests we met there. The pool and sunbathing areas are spotless with plents of sunbeds and Grenville did anexcellent job of making sure the pool was kept spotless. All the apartments were well equipped to a high standard with very comfortable beds had no problem with sleeping at all. The location was brilliant too just a short stroll to the promenade and all the entertainment restrauants etc. Cant wait for next year when we will be coming back . Well done all the people running the Columbus, its first class.

Room Tip: Ground floor has direct access to pool area and first floor has fantastic pool and sea views

Will not be staying here again. on our arrival we were greeted by nobody and had to wait 10 mins in the bar located next door. when the lady eventully turned up her excuse was she didnt know what time we arrived! during our stay we got only 1 set of clean towels in 2 weeks and room got cleaned only once and we had to ask for clean bed sheets as they were soaked in sweat due to the rooms having no ventalation. an oven would have been colder, also you cannot open your windows because its like being camped on the m25. during our second week building work started on apartments above every morning at 7.30 and the clothes that we left outside to dry overnight were covered in paint and sawdust. also the pool wasnt very clean when you got out your swim shorts smelt like rust and knocked you sick. couldnt fault the location you are seconds from the main strip and good bars. spenders bar next door is great.

Some of these apartments have just been refurbished to a very high standard. If you choose one of these you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: look at the accomodation on the website before booking get a refurbished room.
