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.

Not many negatives, apartments are noisy, so if you are a light sleeper, you will struggle to get enough sleep. And the food by the end of the week had got predictable.Rooms are very clean, staff are helpful, two pools which the kids can go in. Overall, I enjoyed my stay and would happily return. More
colina mar stay aug 2014
Just got back from colina mar peuto rico 31.8.14 room 334,really looking forward to this holiday because peurto rico is a really gorgous place and wasn't disappointed. When we arrived general impressions was very clean,beutifull views as it is very high up making a bit of a walk to the town but a taxi is only 4 euro and easy to get.The woman on reception was very helpful, the man was a bit grumpy and has no people skills! The room was very clean and always clean.The main pool in the morning always had towels on the beds from very early but the hotel stopped this,there was a choice of a main pool and a more quieter pool,they both had very friendly staff ,the barman at the small pool was very funny and a general happy go lucky bloke,The bar at the top pool was very understaffed and was left with one English woman to do all the work,she managed to pull it all off though and was very friendly and helpful and made you feel very welcome as did all the bar staff.The food here was basic but nice it is after all a 3 star hotel not a 5 star and generally what I would expect goin all inclusive,work was been done on hotel while we was there,new rails around pool area that look really nice.Found victor the entertainment awesome for kids and wouldn't leave your child out,tried 110% and his bingo 'shaking the balls' still has me in bits ,adult entertainment lacked a bit and was over very quickly,but yet again 1 person can only do so much! , I would recommend this hotel to anybody and hopefully will go back here again next year as all the staff make you feel very welcome and its a nice clean place to stop.More
Will not be returning
We stayed at this hotel 22nd of August. Both aged 29yr with no children we enjoyed the days but nights were terrible unless you want to listen to kids club till 10 an play bingo the adults entertainment his zero. We stayed all inclusive so should really get value from staying in the hotel which we did not and spent 700euro in 7 days. listening to Abba from 11 in the morning till 11 at night got quite annoying too. The food his awful not much choice a very plain an repetitive an even tho were not fussy eaters it was still had to find some to eat unless you can live off chip buttys. The bar staff are rude besides one Irish lady an only one on through day an one at night, no actvities for the adults through out the day only killer pool the hotel is stook in a time warp an will not be returningMore
An experience this was !!!!
I have done AI before and believe me this hotel did not cater for AI holiday makers extremely limited. Two pool areas one you can get your AI package the other pool you could not because the one member of staff that was down there could not cope with the AI snacks so all that was available was drinks or ice cream but the drinks were free. Main dining area the meals was disgusting really limited as to what you could eat and if you like Pork you would be fine as it was served every evening. I have never been to an AI hotel as this was the area for eating was so crammed and no air con it was dreadful. Main pool area the sun loungers were so close together you could not breath. If you don't mind lifts to get you to your apartment you will be fine but it is built like a maze and awful to get around the blocks and the CATS ... drove me mad .The apartments were very clean and spacious but overall I will not be returning awful hotel !!!More

Good price but would not return!
Have been to these apartments before when I was very young and thought they were great (must be good for children)!! Decided to return as the price was very cheap and I thought I knew what to expect. Sadly, I won't be returning again. The walls are paper thin so no long lie is possible as people do not know how to pick a chair up and move it - they prefer to scrape it along the tiles, you need to hire a taxi just to take you from your room to the exit/entrance as there is only one, my husband spent 3 days fighting an ant colony which lived in the kitchen and bathroom (thankfully none in the bedroom), no air conditioning and too chaotic at the pool to try and get a sunbed. The positives, however, is that the view from the balcony is stunning and the location is directly across from the Europa centre where there are plenty of bars and restaurants. The price we paid was excellent so really we shouldn't complain about anything but if you are paying over a reasonable price then perhaps look elsewhere. Gran Canaria in general is great, this being my 7th time visiting and would definitely recommend :-)More
