“Comfy furniture - at last !”
Reviewed December 11, 2013

Stayed for a week at the end of November in 8A. After many visits to different Canary resorts finally found one with comfortable living room sofa and chairs.
Very spacious, well appointed and a big thanks to Kath and Pete for so much help and always a cheery smile.

Arrived on a Sunday in November to a rather frosty reception particularly from Kath on booking in duties who reminded that we were late as our "flight landed more than an hour ago, it doesn't take that long to get here". I never realised we were on the clock and we had had a look around the resort before we made our way to the apartments. She was mostly ok the rest of the week, must have caught her on a bad day. Beware the noise in Apartment 7b from Spenders bar which is joined on to the block. Not from the punters but from the putting away and getting out of the outside tables and chairs every evening and early morning. It's a great little bar however. Location of accommodation is superb seconds from the beach and bars etc, but peaceful and quiet in the apartments (generally). Good pool area, nice spacious room and gardens. Great views. I wouldn't put anyone off these apartments they are generally good but the less than friendly welcome and twice daily noise problem did rather taint the visit slightly and i can't help thinking there's probably a few better alternatives in PDC.

Room Tip: Avoid apartments 7 a and b, next to Spenders. Go for ground floor otherwise there's a curious wa...

Just back from a week here, this is the second time we have stayed here, stayed last november in 7b and last week in 3b, preferred 3b for location as just up steps onto poolside, but 7b has better sofa's, the one in 3b killed my back. We found the beds very comfortable, Kate and Pete their usual friendly selves> The apartments are ideally situated for everything but very quiet. The only down side was we were'nt leaving till about 4pm but had to be out of apartment at 10am, so no facilities to have shower before leaving only a wash.

These apartments are a great location for beach front, restaurant's and shops. The apartments are a great size and clean. I think maybe they should invest in better beds than flat screen TVs. But well worth the money

Nice clean bright apartment, plus side.... Very close to the sea front, plenty of sun loungers around the pool, welcome pack of coffee,tea, milk,washing up liquid , nice size rooms
Down side..... Charges for the T.V and safe, beds are like old camping beds that make so much noise when you move on them, no where in apartment to hang used towels and the pool is FREEZING .....I'm a water baby and I couldn't even get in it was so cold.
There is some noise during the night from bars but that's to be expected because the apartment is close to town.

This is a small complex with well equipped apartments, however there were a few minor niggles like having nowhere to hang towels and having to pay extra for TV and safe. That said, there was a complementary welcome pack with milk, tea/coffee/sugar and washing up liquid/sponge. Free wi-fi, plenty of sun beds around pool and great views of the sea front. Kath and Pete were very accommodating to our needs and very friendly. There can be some noise late at night from the surrounding bars (to be expected ) and bin men seem to come very early in the mornings. Some of us found the beds to be too hard but overall a very comfortable stay.

For many years now we passed by Columbus without a second glance, OMG what so much lost time.
All previous reviewers say the same thing albeit in different words Columbus is just fantastic.
It is not an apartment complex but a place where there is care, and understanding ,and appreciation of the customer's needs , but then we did nit feel like a customer but a friend.
Sharon was our first point of contact and our sincere and heartfelt thanks to her for making it possible for us to stay with Pete Kath and Bill . We had had a very traumatic year and were looking for somewhere a little more human than our usual complex of so many years.
On arrival Pete and Kath were by definition our Hosts and made us feel at home and safe.
By now it is obvious not alone from our comments but all those earlier ones ; that that apartments are of the highest standard , but what can not be put in words is the feeling that you are welcome and not just a "Booking" and this is so ,so special.
We had need of medical assistance and Pete explained that we could avail of the local Health Clinic beside the Post office and in a simple word Sorted .
As an earlier review mentioned , if you want the excitement of pool side bars , loud and noisy , where consideration of your neighbour is not important , the stay away , but for the friendliest , modern apartment unit then Columbus is a must.
We have arrived home today and have concluded that in fifteen years this was our best Holiday in Lanzarote, and thank you Sharon , Kath Pete , and Bill for making it so and if Ryanair can get us back next year we would be so happy to spend another birthday with you.
In essence "Highly Recommended "
john & gillian

Room Tip: Sea view on top poolside on the lower level, personal choice, both fantastic in their own right
