A handful of basic information about Columbus
We are located in Rowy, a small fishing port on the central Polish coast: a village popular with holidaymakers near the western border of Slowinski National Park – a world biosphere reserve – in an ecologically pure, iodine-saturated area.
For a family vacation
We are located very close to the sea, surrounded by beautiful pine sand-dune woodland in a peaceful, quiet area, directly by the entrance to a beautiful, sandy beach with lifeguard service during the summer.
Columbus is particularly suitable for family stays. Our guests are mostly families with children. And that is why we offer many facilities and attractions for children – but in such a way that parents can also participate (if they want to of course – they can also grab a moment for themselves when the kids’ are occupied).
Columbus cares for all childens’ needs. This is reflected in the infrastructure, equipment, suitable menu, and concern for the safety of our little guests. You will find our recipe for a great holiday with children on dedicated website – Family friendly hotel.
Almost in every period (from May till the end of September, but also during Christmas, New Year period or Easter) we offer a lot of additional attractions for children. Participation in the animation program is included in the price , and a wider description can be found on a dedicated site – Holidays with attractions for kids.
Healthy and tasty cuisine
The service provided by our restaurant, the diversity and quality of the individual dishes is second to none. Throughout the year we offer three meals a day, with a schedule slightly varied depending on the season.
In the summer season the breakfast (with freshly home-baked rolls and a buffet where you can watch appetizing scrambled eggs, omelettes, fried and boiled eggs and crepes being cooked to your order) is served until 11:00. The dinner (tasty and filling, with a dessert or ice cream, prepared by our excellent chef) is served between 17:30 and 20:00. Our snack lunch is served from 13:30 to 15:00. For children there is soup and light treats: fritters, pasta parcels, noodles with strawberries or cream cheese, pancakes, baked rice with apples, escalopes or meatballs, homemade dumplings, sometimes chips or even hamburgers and hot dogs (please be more lenient on the dietary restrictions – the holidays happen only once a year!) – all to provide nutrition boost to the developing bodies of children. Of course, the adults are welcome to have the foods from the children’s selection. Specifically for more grown-up palates, we offer a daily changing selection of delights: panini, quesadillas, sometimes a selection of Italian pasta (with different sauces), salads etc.
In the recreational and friendly seasons we offer three classic meals – breakfast from 8:30 to 10:30, lunch from 13:30 to 15:30 and dinner from 18:00 to 20:00. All maintaining the highest quality for a reasonable price.
Juice, water and tea (black and flavoured) are served to all the meals, during beakfast and lunch you may use our proffesional, automatic coffee machine. At the brekfast buffet you will also find milk, cocoa and freshly squeezed orange juice. All those drinks are included!
To meet the needs of the youngest guests, the Columbus Head Chef came up with his trademark “Toddler Soup”. It consists of specially blended vegetables (with an addition of tender meat on request). The Toddler Soup is available – in all seasons – from 12.00.
All meals are served in a buffet format, allowing you to choose the best combination of flavours and portion sizes. We have a system of discounts for children: up to 2 years old – free of charge, up to 12 years old – 50% discount.
Those keen on sports thrills can take advantage of our playing fields fitted with modern, safe surfaces that will minimise any risks faced by young footballers, players of basketball, volleyball or badminton. Our tennis wall also features a safety surface. We also encourage you to try jumping up all the way to the sky on our large trampoline, play a family game of Mini Golf, and take advantage of our cross fitness facilities.
We offer rental of cars, bicycles, sea kayaks, Nordic Walking poles, and kite surfing lessons for our guests.
We do not forget about the well-being and fitness of adults. You can devote more time to getting fit when on holiday. In the summer season, we offer morning exercise classes with an instructor.
To make sure the time spent on the beach is as enjoyable as possible, we have taken care of providing deckchairs and windbreaks. We also offer sports equipment free of charge – balls, rockets, shuttlecocks etc. etc.
And if you fancy a barbecue or a fire, we have suitable places for these too.
Relax tired muscles and let the tension disappear at SPA-lumbus, our massage and spa centre. You can also take advantage of our finnish sauna. We hope that we can persuade you to visit.
Welcome to our lounge bar. It is usually quite lively in the evenings. The bar serves all the classics and some cocktails unique to Columbus, a good selection of wines and spirits (we think that Calvados or Port are not that easy to find in Poland), but also “baby drinks” for the younger generation and ice-cream desserts. We try to make Columbus synonymous with top quality at a reasonable price! We have also created some special treats that we hope will be appreciated by the most demanding connoisseurs. For example, our Columbus Cafe – the recipe is secret, but we are 99.9% sure it is the only great coffee in Poland subtly spiked with a “mystery” spirit responsible for its unique taste and aroma. The atmosphere of the evening meetings in the lounge bar is enhanced by soft background music, appropriately adjusted to the time of day. Our lounge is equipped with a multimedia projector, so that during the day the kids can watch cartoons while the adults keep track of the most important sports and cultural events on the big screen. Often it transforms into the Columbus Cinema where feature films are shown.
We are always at your service
We are also very happy to fulfil special requests – organise birthday flowers or put a surprise bottle of wine in the room on a wedding anniversary. We will take care of providing a fitting setting for your family celebrations.
If, instead of a car, you choose an alternative method to get here – plane, train or bus – we go to great lengths to assist you at the last stage of the journey from the airport or the train station. We can collect luggage sent by courier or mail, take care of it and after your departure, of course, we will send it back.
Columbus combines the atmosphere of an intimate guesthouse with all the amenities that a hotel by the sea can offer. Daily cleaning, room service, friendly and helpful Columbus Team is always at your service.
We guarantee a successful holiday
Our guests can use a large, comfortable, lock-up car park, monitored by CCTV. There is enough room even if you arrive with two cars, or if your friends or family come to visit.
At your disposal we set comfortable, spacious apartments, studios and suites. Each of them offers a bathroom, fridge, at least one (minimum 32″) LCD television, wardrobe, table, desk, access to the internet (via wi-fi technology) and phone. Rooms are arranged in warm, friendly colours, with high quality furniture, materials and amenities. Any room can be accessorised with cots and baby bath-tubs, bottle heaters, baby phones, baby chairs, potties, plastic steps, electric sockets’ plugs and many others…
We try to provide as many facilities and attractions for our guests as possible.
Taking care of the more mundane needs, we provide access to a self-service laundrette.
Of course, you can pay by credit card, we also provide the possibility of free cash withdrawals – CASHBACK – from our till.
Columbus is quiet and ecologically clean. We produce a significant part of the electricity consumed thanks to the installed solar panels, we obtain hot water thanks to efficient heat pumps. This reduces CO2 emissions by 38,500 kilograms per year. Whenever possible, we use biodegradable small items – wooden disposable cutlery or paper straws for drinks.
The ecological cleanliness of the entire area results in a large number of wildlife in the surrounding area. When approaching us by car – especially on the last 3-4 kilometres (from the village Debina) – we wholeheartedly recommend easing off the accelerator. You will arrive 2-3 minutes later, but you will not start your holiday with visit to the garage.
Welcome to the sea!
