Colina Mar Apartments  

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.

SUPERB WEEK AT THE COLINA MAR...

Have just had a week at the colina mar with my 16yr old daughter and it was fab,we have stayed here before on a few occasions and this time it was after an 8yr break!! The place was just as we remembered but has had a big face lift,the rooms have been redone the pools and surrounding areas ie the garden areas have all been cleaned up and are looking fantastic,there has also been the addition of a small enclosed play area at the quiet pool for toddlers with slides and swings etc which was very good..We went self catering so cannot comment on the food but we did have some snacks from the pool area and these were very good.The entertainment wasnt the best and this was reflected by the number of people using the bar area in the evenings,although they do run a buy one get one free drink promo every night at certain times to attract people in.. There were alot more foreigners there than the last time we went, predominately swedish,danes,norwegians and germans but everyone we spoke to were friendly and nice to talk too so that was not a problem and no one put towels on sunbeds in the mornings!! We had a particular problem with our first apartment although it was NOT the colina mars fault we had terrible neighbours or the neighbours from hell as my daughter called them ,absolutely no consideration at 12:30 /1:0clock in the morning 3 kids under 6 running riot slamming doors screaming and the parents out on bvalcony drinking ,and texting and when approached did nothing but give me verbal so I did complain after 2 nights of this and we were moved that instance.... It was my birthday on the wednesday we were there and when we got back to the apartment there was a bottle of cava and a box chocs for me compliments of the colina mar!!! The area where we were situated is at the top of Puerto Rico so if you want to go to the town its a taxi ride as is the trip back up it was 4 euros so can get pricey but it depends on how energetic you are? The shops and restaurants in the europa which is 2min walk from C M were very good and we tried a few of the places opting for the chinese as it was just fantastic,as Ive said in my report on it...Also we visited Amadores which is the next place over the hill and is a newer built area with a fantastic beach there also are some fab restaurants and again I have done a report on the best.. We went with Thomson and theyre Rep BEN was brilli ant nothing was too much trouble but spend a half hour when you get there to go to the welcome meeting it is worth it we purchased tickets for a couple of trips and they were cheaper... Last but not least I would like to just comment on the reception staff,I have read a few of the reports and some have been quite bad about them but whilst we were there all of them couldnt have been more helpful we always had a welcome and we had a little trouble with the safe but it was sorted immediately,I have nothing but praise for them,and I do believe that if you treat them right you will get treated the same!!! So there you have it folks and YES I cant wait to go back and hope its less than 8yrs this time...Colina Mar you were just perfect thank you......More

Bye Viktor

I stayed here with my partner and two year old for 10 nights in July 2014. Check in was fast, the rooms were spacious and cleaned daily to a good standard. The self catering facilities are good although we were all inclusive. The food was just ok, and drinks were quite good. Although this is the first all inclusive hotel I have stayed in that does not include cocktails on all inclusive. The Icecream however, is self serve and is amazing. The pool on the lower floor is much quieter and more suited to families with very young children. I would have returned to the hotel, as the entertainment provided by Viktor was fab. He is worth his weight in gold to the hotel, but I have since heard he has left the hotel. I'm not surprised he worked tirelessly 7 days a week all day, he was a one man entertainment machine for the hotel during the evening, running from one side of the hall to another due to the outdated music system. Would I go back now Viktor has left? No. Amadores beach is spectacular, absolutely stunning, I would return to Puerto Rico just for this beach alone.More

Another Fantastic Break

Just returned from a week away at the Colina Mar, after our last visit in October 2008. The place is just as lovely as I remembered, and has even benefited from a refurbishment since our last visit. We always go here Self Catering, as after many conversations with the locals in the area, all inclusive at hotels anything other than 5 Star is killing the local restaurant and bar business, and it would be a real shame to see the vast variety of bars go to waste and be shut down. For people complaining on that note about the quality of food at the Colina Mar and going all inclusive, this is really only a 3 star hotel, so you generally get what you pay for, if you want 5 star food and drinks service, go to a 5 star hotel! I have no complaints whatsoever with the service we received, the same old faces are still there, and work so very hard to make everything perfect for their customers. I have seen many complaints that drinks service didn't start until 11am, however who needs much before that time of day?? We were located in room 223, which was just up and to the right of the restaurant, and the smell of cooked breakfast every morning, certainly got your tummies rumbling! Entertainment is unfortunately lacking at the complex, however the nearby Europa centre more than catered for 3 adults, and should you require a little more excitement, the town of Puerto Rico is situated via 800 steps down hill (did it once, calves were on fire for 3 days lol) or a quick taxi ride for approximately 4€. The whole complex is spotlessly clean, a gentleman was cleaning the glass panels at 6am every morning, and they all work tirelessly to keep it looking spic and span. As previously mentioned, they provide all the tools for washing up, including a tea towel, and a complimentary bottle of water in the fridge on arrival. The onsite shop easily competes with the local supermarket prices, and in some cases is much cheaper than the HyperDino one in the Europa. The lady in the shop (never caught her name) works very long days, but always greets with a smile, and much appreciates even a little spanish as in an "Ola" and "Gracias" Temperatures were between 30 and 35 degrees most days, so be aware of this, it is a lot warmer that you think. There are two pool areas, one larger one where most of the children congregate, and another smaller one should you require a bit of peace and quiet. All in all a fantastic week in the sun, this now being my 4th visit, and will be returning again in May next year with my daughter, highly recommended!More
