The advertisers for the various clubs in this center... More

Liked the atmosphere but the steep ramps caused our wheelchair to tip, so disliked that, but liked the friendly people

In the day time it is all shops selling basically the same things,at night time the bars open and this is where most of the lads and girls stand trying to get you to go into the various bars .

Visited here on our recent holiday in Playa del Ingles.It's like taking a trip back to the seventies.By day the vast majority of the place is shut down and derelict.By night its overrun by thugs (sorry pr's) trying to rip you off. Avoid like the plague.

Returned to gran canaria with my partner and two others, we are nightlife seekers so this review may apply for some of you. All the men out the clubs selling the clubs and offering free drinks, their free to talk about... soon as you've finished the drinks you get a bill, so ensure that you know exactly the ins and...

It looks like Kasbah Centre was built when in 1962 in the Playa del Ingles tourist developments had started. During day there's only perfumeries shops and a few souvenirs shops open. I recommend Riu perfume - they have good prices - but only when there's a Spanish lady during day. In the evenings there is a boy who wanted to... More

Been coming to gran canaria for a few years now and thought I would try the Kasbah to see if it had changed... Nope still the same edgy atmosphere and horrible touts trying to get you in there bars by whatever means they can.. Safe to say won't bother again!
