I have been a regular visitor to the Yumbo for over 20 years. The main draw for me is the gay nightlife. Be advised that the nightlife doesn't get going until midnight and continues until 6am or later. Being a Londoner,what I appreciate here is that you can hop from one venue to another and experience everything from a drag... More

I had mixed feelings on the Yumbo Centre having nightlife, shops and restaurants in an outdoor carpark style shopping centre felt a bit tacky for me and it took me a while to warm to the Yumbo Centre. If you weren't aware it is a gay nightlife mecca which isn't for everybody. The main problem I had with this was... More

A great place to sit and have some cocktails and people watch. Ignore the hawkers and they will go away. Great variety of bars and some have themes. Best to get there from 10pm onwards. Some really good nights out.

After visiting most of the bars in the yumbo centre, I have felt compelled to write about these guys. Whoever recruited them, well done! The guys serving are so nice, genuine and welcoming. We aren't the gushy types but this deserved a mention. Oh it's also got sunshine from lunchtime onwards for lovely afternoon cocktails and beers.

I love the Yumbo for the gay night life, has bars and clubs to suit all tastes, staff in most of the bars are friendly. The nightlife tends to get going around 11pm until 6am ish. I have been going here for around six years, and a great fun place. I did however have a few issues this trip, which... More

I think further down somebody from Italy has described the Yumbo Centre as a 'horrible structure'...If there is a worse description then I would use it. It is a conglomeration of rather seedy gay bars, a collection of restaurants, and a load of shops selling a lot of tourist tat, and overpriced jewellery and gifts, stuffed into a not very... More

For those who haven't visited Gran Canaria, you will find a lot of activity located in the Commercial Centres (CC) like the Yumbo. A mix of shops and bars of the day, and bars, restaurants and clubs at night, there is something for everyone whether you want to shop and relax, or party all night. Plus some fantastic events with... More

Well..... what to say about the Yumbo Centre, it's somewhat of a gay mecca! If you are visiting Playa Del Ingles, its an absolute must see! Its a rather odd looking place during the day time, rather like a multi storey car park. During the daytime there are plenty of shops to browse, however these are very samey tat /... More

The shopping here is awful but you will soon judge yourself... from reading other reviews some clearly love it whilst most conclude it is mostly tacky rubbish at inflated prices peddled by rather pushy and unscrupulous staff but these can be easily ignored if you don't want to get involved. Most of the restaurants are over-priced but they cater for... More

Was my first visit to GC and was told about the Yumbo Centre, but didn't know what to expect. It has everything you could possibly want! Shopping during the day with bars open selling good food, and at night a complete change around with good night clubs to cater for everyone's needs! Wouldn't take children here at night, as its...
