We decided to visit because neither of us had ever visited a gay resort before and we keep hearing about Playa del Ingles. Yumbo is definitely worth a vist guys! Maybe not everyones cup of tea but there's a good mix of people and the bars are friendly and reasonably priced; Mystique is increadibly welcoming and a nice atmosphere. Riskys... More

There are some great bars here Buddy's, Casa Juan and rendezvous to name a few. There are also some great places to eat. Shopping however is another matter. Cheap over priced tat with shop keeps who will not leave you alone. It makes the whole experience very unpleasant. Comparing prices today it's cheaper and with a much better selection at... More

The centre is a little run down but has a super selection of shops bars and restaurants to suit everyone. The difference between daytime and nighttime is amazing. Such a busy bustling area at night with nearly 4/5 times as many people. A large number of people are from the gay community but the atmosphere is fabulous and should not... More

The Yumbo Centre is one of the many 'centro commercial' that were built during the initial holiday boom of the 60s and 70s and was one of the grander: three sunken tiers of shopping surrounding a green plaza, connected with stairs and walkways and (very recently) lifts. It all sounds so wonderful, but when the boom turned to bust, this... More

The centre was built in the 70's and it's really showing it's age. The inner courtyard area houses music events and serves it's purpose with nice planting and palm trees but the outer ring of restaurants, shops and bars leaves little to be desired. Some of the fashion and perfume shops are fine in there own right but the majority... More

The Yumbo is basically a Gay Ghetto, with numerous low rent gay bars selling expensive alcohol. Over the years the place has got worse and worse, so much so, the main visitors are now German and English Gay Men, who are looking for the Dark Room bars these are the only bars which are busy. It's not a place for... More
