We stayed at the KN Columbus for 10 nights flying out from Bristol airport on 31st march 2015. This is our 3rd stay at the hotel but we have visited Tenerife on many occasions. We had a studio apartment on the first floor directly above the entrance 'canopy' to the hotel. We stayed self catering. Room 122. The room was modernised and very clean and tidy. You really could not fault it. Lovely shower and adequate self catering facilities, if needed. The room overlooked the road but there was very little noise to worry about. We only had 1 noisy night during our stay, being our last night, caused by other inconsiderate guests. Saying that they are also on holiday and only enjoying themselves, but wish they would appreciate other guests ! The whole hotel is extremely clean including pool areas and all staff are really friendly and helpful. There is an Columbus 'information desk' just inside reception and the gentleman who manned it was so friendly. you don't need a holiday rep, just ask him. Infact we never saw the Thomson's rep. The weather was really lovely for the entire holiday. Never ate at the Hotel so I cannot comment on the food. Hotel is 15 minutes walk to the Los cristianos beach, down to front and turn left or if you turn right you come to the black beach in 5 minutes. Local to loads of lovely bars and eating places such as, La Bocas, Giddy Goose, Aberdeen steak house and Carriages. Heads N tails is a lovely bar and serve lovely food -down to front and turn right passing black beach and veronica centre. Watch for signs stating Salytien shopping centre Bar is on left. Worth a visit and say 15 minutes walk. My favourite bars are Carriages and Travellers rest. Carriages is opposite hotel (down a bit) and Travellers rest is down the road and turn right. Beer and food is so cheap. Most bars is 1.50 a pint !. Would we return to hotel-yes ! (the sooner the better)

Nice staff beautiful rooms best self catering I have ever stayed in cant really say a bad word about this hotel apart from they where having building work done and they assured the guests there would be no noise witch there was and quite a lot of it and the swimming pool is ice cold. There was family's in the hotel but i would say its more of a stag/hen hotel. wifi was very very poor.

This was our first time at the hotel. On arrival the staff were very helpful and welcoming. Lots of sun beds around the pools. Lots of things to do in the area too. However, what we weren't aware of there was building work going on and it was quite noisy when they were banging away. Also as we walked in to our room, we saw that the cleaner had just wiped the table with exactly the same cloth as the floor. Obviously just be careful as this shouldn't really happen. Really good weather too, would definitely stay again, but all inclusive next time!

Me and my Boyfriend stayed for a week 21st April - 28th April on a self catering basic. We was in room 214, on the second floor. First impressions of the room we're amazing. We had a refurbished room. Very clean, and very modern. Room cleaned every day and bins emptied. Beds and towels changed every 2 days. Our room was a road side view. Soon as the balcony door was closed we couldn't hear anything! Yes you pay €1 for the telly but do you go on holiday to just sit and watch the TV? Location was brilliant 10 minute walk from the beach and club strip. A lot of local restraunts which served beautiful food. Would recommend the Steak house across the road! Our last 3 days we upgraded to all inclusive, which cost €180 for the both of us! Apart from the breakfast, the food was delicious. Different choices each night. Never had a problem with the Staff they were amazing. We was warned before we went away about work being done and didn't bother us in the slightest. I think we got what we payed for and more! Have recommended to all our friends and family and will be returning in the future.
