Tonight is our first night in the hotel. First impressions are not great I hate to say. Poolside earlier I had a cockroach run over my foot, got to the room after having to wait around for it and incredibly dusty. All inclusive but alcohol is diluted massively. The hotel is situated in a fantastic location with many shops, restaurants and bars around which I'm glad about. Food on our first night wasn't that great at all, after leaving the restaurant hungry we decided to eat out. Everywhere local has great food and charged at a very decent price. Charging €1 an hour for the TV is just ludicrous. I shall be going down to reception in the morning as me and my partner asked for a double bed but instead have had 2 single beds pushed together. I'm really hoping things will get better from here onwards otherwise I'm incredibly disappointed.

its a lovely place to stay, rooms are spacious and clean. the pools are big but you have to be up early to get a sun bed. you have everything you need in the hotel, food, drink and WiFi, and your only around the corner from the nightlife and veronicas strip.

Just got back from an all inclusive week stay with the Columbus. Upon arrival all seemed okay however, a €30 deposit for the use of the air con I was pretty shocked about especially considering it was the height of summer and a family room normally this comes as standard in other Thomas Cook hotels I have stayed with. The room was a massive let down! We stayed in a family room with a living area with sofa beds and separate double bedroom. There was not near enough storage, 1 wardrobe in living area and none in bedrooms which became an issue as was staying with my partner and another couple. There were no hot drink making facilities and the bedroom had plastic windows which opened onto the landing which made for very noisy nights when other guests made their way back. But worst of all was the uncleanliness of the rooms! Our room wasn't cleaned once during our stay instead just the beds made and towels changed twice during the stay, not once were our bins emptied. We found belongings from the previous guests under the beds which showed they hadn't even been properly cleaned before we checked in. It was disgusting. Sun beds were an absolute joke! Other guests kept their towels on overnight every night, we had 0 chance of ever getting one. We complained and was just told 'They shouldn't do that, move their towels' to avoid any arguments we spent our days at the beach or Siam park. Breakfast was lovely can't really go wrong, lunch the same every day but basic and the dinner was a disaster we never ate in. Bar staff were lovely and the drinks were okay with enough choice, was the only saving grace of the Columbus to be honest. Will not be staying again.

We stayed here for 2 weeks in the middle of August. We went self-catering as there are LOADS of opportunity to eat out (or eat in by getting a takeaway). They have entertainment for kids and adults day and night; Theo and John were very friendly and entertaining! We stayed in the studio suite which was clean and tidy - cleaners use a rota for cleaning towels, beds etc which isn't every day although couldn't figure the colour coded rota on the door. Facilities in the room were fine although suits are NOT double bed - they are two single FYI couples. Supermarket for food/drink around the corner (get 10% off if you stay at Columbus). It is quite noisy pre 1am through entertainment downstairs although that didn't affect us as we were out by then. Air-con is a €30 deposit. Only major gripe...why o why there are no more sunbeds I genuinely don't know! They could easily fit another 30-40 around the two pool areas (which are lovely by the way). The first week people left towels on the sun-beds however the second week you couldn't reserve them over night which was a lot fairer for other guests - they should enforce this policy more often! Having said that, ideal location as it's a 15mins walk from the main bar/strip area and if you wanted to walk to Los Cristianos it will take about 40-50mins. In regards to other reviews - we hardly saw any cockroaches, I think about 5 over our trip...FEW of the staff are grumpy but there we go...you get a range of people - families, couples, guys/girl groups, mainland Spanish so it caters for everyone.This is a very popular hotel for all groups of people and we would stay again.
