Sometimes the food was repeated but there was an enormous choice suiting both young and old. If I had to nit-pick and find fault here it would be that the water in the pools was so cold no one used them also could have done with larger bath towels.
Entertainment wasn't great but we didn't stay in much anyway. A little tip book your trips with Ticket Box across the street much better bargains.
There were not enough seats in bar in evenings as all the lads would take over, there was no entertainment what so ever. One drink at a time even if there was only two of us so we had to get up one as a time to get a drink.
Food not nice at all same meal every night of chips, beef stew, pizza, the meals didn’t change the whole week we stayed there.
I would not recommend this to anyone.
The location is great because it is near the shops etc and although the beach in Las Americas is questionable it is clean. The hotel is one of the pick-up points for all the trips so it is very convenient but do not book your trips in the Hotel, go underneath or into town. The night-time entertainment was great and varied
Altogether this was a GREAT holiday though Cosmos leave a lot to be desired

The room we had as facing on to the man road and did get noisy at times hearing all the sirens and people returning early hours of the morning from the clubs although did get used to this as the holiday progressed. Not enough sun beds around the pool area as people were always up early nd putting towels on the beds to reserve them although it was a mainly English hotel.
ALthough we went self catering we did pay once on our second week for the all you can eat buffet on an evening to see what it was like. There was alot of choice but as we only tryied it once dont know if it is the same food al the time. There was a variety from salad, soup, pizza, pasta, meat, veg and also lots of deserts, cake, fruit, icecream etc.
The hotel wasn't far from the beach and while we were there we went to los christianos beach about a 20 min walk from the hotel as it had lockers to keep all the valubles safe and toilets.
The hotel staff were poliet but on the odd occassion the reception staff tryed to ignore you. They also wouldn't keep te room key when we went out on day trips which was annoying at times just incase it got lost.
The entertainment was good but as wewere there the 2 weeks it just got repeated the 2nd week but just in a different order. You got the usual shows like animals (parrots, egales and snakes) and brazilian dances and also karaoke. Before these shows they had a kids mini disco and bingo to win alcohol.
All in all the hotel was good but i just think i would try another area to go and relax as this one wasn't in the main resort but as it was cheap all the clubbers go to it.

The Columbus apartments look quite old school style when you first arrive which did put me off slightly but i was pleasently surprised when we got in there.
The rooms are quite basic but the cleaners gave you clean towels every day and made your beds and even washed up!! - the only thing i did notice was that the floor was never swept so it was a bit grubby by the time we left! But it wasnt a big deal.
The pool area is nice and clean with a big pool. They lock the sunbeds up at night and open them at about half 9ish, which i thought was a good idea as there was always sunbeds free later on in the morning as people werent reserving them with towels!
The hotel is in a nice location, as it is out of the way of the veronicas strip but within close walking distance. The only thing i did find was that it was a bit noisy at night times, we only had a couple of late nights, so when your in bed at midnight you notice the noise more!
We went self catering so not sure what the food is like. But i did over hear a chavvy family complaining about the food being awful, but then again we spoke to another family who said the food was lovely. I think you get what you pay for really.
We walked to Los Christianos beach as the beaches around Las Americas were dark sand. The walk from this hotel is about 20 mins which is tiring in the heat but worth it.
Loro Parque is a good attraction to go to. Its nice to do something other then sunbathe or go to the beach. We did find that it was quite busy, especially around the times of the dolphin and whale shows. Make sure you get to the dolphin show early, at least half an hour before, as they fill up really quickly!!
We also went to aqualand - we didnt rate this at all. It was quite grubby and you had to pay
