The yumbo may look a little run down but it's still a great place to enjoy yourself. In the day there many shops in which you can harddle the price. In the evening the bars open, there are two drag bars that have some great shows one being Sparkles on the first floor and Ricky's on the ground floor. Lots... More

Went here with partner and was dubious as hotel did not recommend as good shopping. We loved it. It was all under cover (great for my bf who was sunburnt!) It is a mixture of higher end shops with market style stalls that sell knock off stuff. We were there afew hours. Everyone very friendly. They are happy to haggle,... More

There's something for everyone here over the course of 24 hours. If you know where and when to go, you'll be back time and time again. In the daytime, the restaurants on the second level on the North flank and the ground level on the East flank will spoil you for choice. In the evening, the bars around the main... More

The yearly pride event is rammed, and pushes the yumbo Center to its limits, the public services did a great job day and night, however the place stank of stale urine, sick, and alcohol, the tiled walk ways black and sticky, ... A run down tatty shopping Center that looks like a glorified multi-storey carpark, and as a new comer... More

Think the worst part of Blackpool and Skegness in the sun. Looks like a converted car park with the worst kind of shops ( high pressure looky looky) and restaurants that cater to "chav Central" It was Gay Pride so there was a fantastic buzz about the place but overall I would rather give it a miss.

Pleanty of place to stop and have a drink and something to eat. Went there at night. We ate at a chinese which was not great but the... More

The restaurants in this place are very good, in particular Wapa Tapa, but be very careful in the bars or avoid altogether as my drink was spiked which a doctor confirmed as I needed urgent medical attention, if you do go into one of the bars make sure to go up to the bar and watch them pour your drink,...

I was looking to do a bit of shopping while staying in Playa Del Ingles and saw this was the best shopping center. It probably is the best shopping centre in Playa del Ingles but it is simply a run down collection of tourist shops. I saw a lot of homosexual people kissing each other enthusiastically outside reasonably priced bars.... More
