“Great holiday, fantastic apartments”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Just arrived back from these apartments after a two week holiday with my boyfriend. We were greeted nicely by Kath and Bill and shown to our apartments and given a starter pack with some water, tea and coffee and some cleaning stuff. As a young couple it would have been nice to have a double bed but the apartments are nice and clean and have everything you need but make sure you rent a fan and a tv as it adds those little extras that you need once you are there. We were on the ground floor which we were worried about but we actually liked it better because we could walk in and out of the pool ( which was freezing btw). On our time we went to the strip a lot which was literally a two second walk and the bars and shops were all near as well which was perfect. The fact that the apartments were gated was a huge bonus. Only downside that i would say is that most nights i was woken up by really noisy people at around 6am and really loud cars with music which could get annoying but it was maybe just our luck.!! Never really saw Kath and Bill again for the next two weeks which wasn't great when needing water and a fan but maybe just slept in too much with a hangover haha!!

Stay here for sure !!

Thank you for your review... Hopefully the road noise hasn't put you off staying with us again! Apartment 4B is ideal for the pool and sun terrace - next time opt for 2B this has a double bed. Your next booking will qualify for a 10% re-book discount...

We have just returned from a 2 week stay at the Columbus Apartments. We were on our honeymoon and when we arrived there was a bottle of champagne waiting on us which was just lovely, thank you so much. Our apartment was spotlessly clean, very modern and well equipped with a beautiful view of the sea and the mountains in the background. Kath and Pete were very friendly and helpful. The apartments are a short walk from the main promenade with plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants to choose from and there is a bike hire shop across the road. We had a lovely time in Lanzarote and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Columbus Apartments. Thank you Sharon; we hope to return some time in the future.

Just returned from these aparments and would highly recommend them. The apartments are very well furnished and equipped with fridge/freezer, full sized cooker/oven and all the necessary equipment enabling you to have all the comforts you would have at home. The verandas and patios are also well furnished and benefit from the sun all day, the pool area has ample sunloungers so there is no rush to put towels down.

The staff made us feel very welcome and were very friendly and willing to help, which is something you don't find very often in a holiday complex.

We will certainly be returning to these apartments.

On arrival we were greeted by kath and Pete, they showed us to our appartment and around the complex ,we were given a starter pack that was useful. The complex and appartment was nice and clean it was close to shops and beach the pool area was covered in AstroTurf which was nice under foot when u got out the pool as a none slip area to walk on, the pool was a bit cold at first but you soon warmed up this was cleaned frequently.
Fell in love with BENJI the complex cat.
Defiantly going back again.

We have been going to these apartments on a number of occassions now and we find them to be very friendly and always willing to help. Cath and Pete who run the apartments will bend over backwards to help you. The apartments are very clean and in a lovely area. We recommend these apartments to anyone.

Only two things stopped me from rating the Columbus apartments as excellent, and they may not even be an issue for others, So I'll get them out of the way first of all, but don't let them put you off because I DO recommend staying here. Firstly if you have an upstairs room you have to go out of a locked gate into the street, walk around the corner and through another locked gate to reach the pool area (I didn't actually mind this much anyway) Secondly, the pool is unheated and a tad cold to be inviting. Having said that, it's fairly common to most places and despite what one old reviewer said, it was spotlessly clean, as was the entire complex thanks to Pete and Kath and their little team. The apartments themselves were well maintained, clean and comfortable, with a warm welcoming feel to them - like a home from home. If you want to self-cater, there's a well appointed kitchen with fridge/freezer, oven, ceramic hob, kettle, toaster, and microwave. Plenty of plates, bowls, cups, mugs, cutlery and other utensils as well as plastic tumblers for pool area use. Also there's an iron and ironing board. The 'welcome pack' included washing up liquid and cloth, tea, coffee and sugar. The lounge had two comfortable armchairs and a sofa, a coffee table and brilliantly a decent sized flat screen TV with the main UK channels at a reasonable extra cost. The balcony was a lovely place to sit with a lovely view, and greet the new day with a tea or coffee and I've been trying to find out where we can get the same patio table and chairs as they're all weather artificial cane/wicker. In the pool area there are comfortable sun loungers and some sun shades but possibly more shades might help as there's not enough for everyone. We didn't have any problem getting sun loungers, but two couples tended to put their towels out very early every day and didn't use them until late afternoon if at all. Unusually, the pool area is covered with astroturf which seemed a little strange at first but after a very short time we decided it was a really good idea and very practical, so cheers to whoever made that decision, it was inspired. Most of the guests were Brits and as usual for Brits abroad, friendly. Unlike a hotel, there's no bar that belongs to the complex or entertainment, but you're close to a very wide choice of bars with entertainment and you can take drinks to the pool area (but if you do, please leave it clean and tidy when you leave) Pete and Kath were very approachable, helpful and friendly and I would fully recommend staying here.

Thank you for a great review... I note your comment regarding toilets. Just a few weeks ago the toilets which service the pool area re-opened which is so much more convenient for those staying in an upstairs apartment. We hope you'll come and stay with us again and all future bookings receive a 10% re-book discount.
