Was good apart from the pick pockets at night, 4 of our lads were robbed on the strip and walking home and a few people from the hotel were robbed as well. The prostitutes were pestering you and would not go away, you tell them no but they just followed you back to your hotel. Apart from that, great holiday and definitely go back to the Columbus.

Beaches

Playa las Vistas is set back in a curved bay with wide golden sands. The waters are calm and protected by two large breakwaters which almost encircle the entire beach. This is a spacious beach with loungers and shades for hire and plenty going on, with volleyball courts on the sand and terrace bars and restaurants right behind you.

Continuing around the bay is the exclusive chill-out beach complete with cabanas, belonging to the Mexican themed Europe Villa Cortes Hotel followed by a long, narrow stretch of sand backed by gardens, bars, fast foods and entertainments. On the northern edge of the resort, there are the two adjoining beaches of Troya 1 and Troya 2, which are protected by breakwaters.

Things to Do

Watersports are almost unlimited and include jet skis, banana boats and fly fish, sailing, kite boarding, scuba diving, parascending, water skiing and wakeboarding.
Other popular activities include Go-karting, golf and horse riding. Quad bikes and push bike hire is also a great way to get about and jeep safaris are an excellent way to get off the beaten track and see a different side to Tenerife.

Walk along the long promenade; in one direction you can walk through all the resorts of the Costa Adeje including San Eugenio, Torviscas, Fanabe and El Duque, alongside the beaches and around the Puerto Colon marina, all the way to La Caleta. In the opposite direction you can walk around Los Cristianos harbour and along the promenade into the protected natural park of Montana de Guaza.

Take a bus into the Teide National Park and take the cable car to the summit of Mount Teide. This is the highest peak in Spain and naturally affords spectacular views.

Take a boat trip. Playa de las Americas has the Puerto Colon Marina at one end of the resort and the Los Cristianos harbour at the other. Between the two you can choose from dolphin and whale watching trips, leisure cruises, big game fishing trips, diving trips, ferries to neighbouring Canary islands or even hire your own yacht.

Out and About

Playa de las Americas is a well established resort that really does have something for everyone. From international fast food chains to world class restaurants, pole dancing bars to stylish terrace bars, beach shops to designer boutiques.

Late night revelry can mainly be found in the Starco complex, Veronicas or the Patch, but general evening entertainment such as live music, tribute bands, karaoke and sports bars can be found throughout the resort. For an appealing setting by the fountains, the Safari Centre offers some excellent restaurants, chic shops and stylish bars.

Nearby Attractions

All within 10 minutes of the resort centre, there are water parks, wildlife parks and a golf course.

Siam Water Park is always popular with all ages. It has slides for adrenalin seekers as well as play areas for children, a wave pool, Thai beach and Mai Thai lazy river all set in immaculate Thai themed landscaping. Aqualand also has slides for all ages as well as popular daily dolphin shows.

Golf las Americas dominates the back of the resort and its 18 hole championship course features lakes, streams and mountain scenery. There is also a driving range, chipping green, putting green, pro golf shop and clubhouse.

Monkey Park is always a hit with the children and is packed with friendly playful monkeys. Jungle Park which is a wildlife zoo with big cats, primates, a bird of prey show and an adventure park with a toboggan run and assault course.

Bargain hunters should head to Torviscas Market. Held every Saturday it's one of the biggest markets on the island with a mass of stalls selling everything from clothes and jewellery to souvenirs and crafts.
