In a rural spot overlooking the town, the Colina Mar Apartments showcase the best of Puerto Rico's scenery. Two sea-view pools stage a come-one-come-all entertainment schedule. As for food, a couple of restaurants sizzle up Med-inspired menus and global theme nights.
If you’re looking for a room with a view, the Colina Mar Apartments are a great option. They’re tucked into a hillside overlooking the Puerto Rico Valley, so rural vistas stretch out in every direction. Not only that, there’s also a sandy beach directly below that takes about thirty minutes on foot to get to. In terms of getting out and about, the popular Europa Centre – home to shops, restaurants and bars - is just a couple of minutes’ down the road.
The apartments themselves are simple and stylish, with warm, earthy colours on the walls and bed linen in sunset shades. They come with living areas and kitchenettes, so you’re well set-up for self-catering. They all have their own balconies, too.
Outside, there are two sea-facing swimming pools to choose from. Head to the main pool for games, quizzes and watersports, or pull up a sun lounger at the quiet pool if you’re just looking to take it easy. There are a couple of poolside bars as well, serving up light bites throughout the day.
At mealtimes, there's the main restaurant or the à la carte for dinner. As a rough rule of thumb, dishes have a Mediterranean flavour – think fresh seafood, pasta and paella. And the staff put on regular theme evenings, too, which feature the likes of Italian nights, show-cooking demos and barbecues by the pool. In terms of after-dinner entertainment, meanwhile, cabaret-style shows and tribute acts are on the agenda.

A great location for a fab New Year break
This was our first visit to the Colina Mar and I must say we were very impressed. Having read some of the reviews prior to our visit we were a little dubious about opting for all inclusive but I am pleased to say we needn't have been concerned. The food was on the whole very good with plenty of variety. Personally I wasn't a massive fan of the breakfast. The beans and tomatoes were not particularly warm but other than that, we had no complaints with the food. The location was great with a stunning view of Puerto Rico from our balcony. The room itself was surprisingly very spacious. It was very clean and the cleaners visited every day bar one during our one week stay. The two swimming pools were very generous in size. Unfortunately it was a little too windy and therefore too cold for me to brave a dip but it did look very inviting. All of the staff we encountered from reception to bar/restaurant were very friendly, helpful and had a good sense of humour. The entertainment by the pool and of an evening is also worth a mention. If there was any criticism at all it would be the availability of WiFi as it is only available at reception. It would be good to have access in the bar. Would we visit again? Most definitely and we are already thinking about heading back again to celebrate New Year. Sarah & OliverMore

Great place - enjoyed our stay
We were there from 27th Dec to 3rd Jan. Really enjoyed our stay and the all-inclusive food - great selection - plenty of healthy food - and at dinner and lunch - good vegetarian - fish - chicken - meat options. Loved the deserts at lunch and dinner and the enjoyable afternoon tea. The local drinks were very good. We eat out on a few occasions and did not find the food up to the colinamar standard. The room was fine it was near the smaller pool and the shower was great. It was a nice touch to have water left for us in our fridge and washing up liquid etc. left for us. The big pool has a depth from 1.2, 1.3 up to 1.7metres. I could not swim in the small pool as it started at 1.7 metres upwards as I do not feel comfortable outside my depth. The cleaners were excellent and all the staff were friendly, professional and extremely helpful. Unfortunately there was a cold breeze in the last few days and we were unable to sit on our lovely balcony. Day time activities and night time - including Oscar - were excellent. The gardens, flowers and plants in the complex are absolutely beautiful. Only complaint is the number of cats. I thought the complex was very safe for children with lovely play area, great activities rep and lovely play room. As there is no bus in the area it was difficult to get a taxi in the morning (never had any trouble in the evening getting a taxi) so one day we strolled to Amadores beach - my calves were sore for two days - and got a taxi back - we also walked down the steps beside Puerto Azual hotel to the beach and got a ferry to Mogan. Another day we strolled down past Puerto Azual to the centre and got a bus to Maspalonmas. As others have said the all-inclusive is excellent value - for the endless coffees alone!! We really enjoyed our stay.More
New Year Break
We have stayed here at the Colina Mar numerous times for the past twenty years and have met some lovely people.We like the hotels location and the facilities it has to offer.The rooms are clean and spacious with easy access to the pool, bar and restaurant.Your children will be more than happy with the two pools present if the sun is out and most of the year it is.The hotel is also suitable for couples looking to chill out!.It makes sence to upgrade to all inclusive as there rates are reasonable and the food is superb.There are lots of local attractions to venture out and see and a taxi for 3 euros will land you at two local beaches, with swanky restaurants and bars.The evening entertainment at the hotel over the years has mellowed to a more relaxed atmosphere.Oscar will entertain you and theres a very good guitarist.The staff are very friendly and helpful.Steve and Carol Bailey Cardiff.More

great location good rooms,
we stayed at collina mar from the 22d December for 7 days, the rooms were nice for gran canaria, although the rooms are cleaned regally a little more time cleaning would be great if you make the sofa bed it is very dusty and the floor had a lot of hair on it but with in a hour I gave it all a good clean sweep with the stuff provided, we had to change rooms although it was fully booked 2 days in we managed to get a different room, TV cost 10 euros a week and you get a free porn channel ;) the bearded man in reception is a bit moody but he's ok, not the best of welcomes but we did enjoy our stay, the best rooms are 200 and up any lower is a good walk from reception, although lower number rooms are very quiet, lovely views and taxis are 4 euros back to the hotel from the beach, the food in the hotel isn't great, drinks cheap when its happy hour, gran canaria has gone down hill abit we was offerd drugs every day we was there even when I went out for breakfast that really upset me one man even waited for us to come out the spar in the Europa centre scary really I don't even look like the type that takes drugs. all in all its a good place to stay for the priceMore

love staying here
we were here from 18th december for two weeks and as usual everything was brilliant. Having been here twice before this being our third stay it was a little disappointing to see that after spending a lot of money upgrading the rooms and railings and other things around the hotel, the tables in the ship masters are still just as wobbly as they were 2/3 years ago!!! It's a shame as I say they have spent so much on the rest of the hotel surprising that the tables haven't been replaced. Also on this trip we noted that the a la carte restaurant, branded drinks and bottles of wine was with 25% discount for all inclusive guests, the past two times we have been it was 50% so this put us off using the a la carte restaurant at the hotel, where we would usually go two or three times we found ourselves eating out on nights we fancied a break from the buffet. It would be nice if the hotel could perhaps consider offering multiple time returning guests with all inclusive the 50% discount as a gesture. We are going back in April so fingers crossed they have new tables and assess the discount for all inclusive guests as that is one of the things we looked forward to when coming here. We will still enjoy the holiday as the hotel is lovely, brilliant location, nice food and the staff are great - can't wait to go back! More
