“massive shopping centre, and a bit more”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

we asked in the hotel where to go for shopping, and yumbo was the first reply!
it is a very large outdoor/semi shaded multi level shopping centre with many bars and restaurants during the day that are open, and many nightclubs that remain closed until the evening.
you can buy anything here from the obvious tat that gets peddled, to electrics and electronics, theres even a massive DIY store if your a resident needing to repair the gate lol. theres even a large cheap spar shop if your self catering that you can but most things that you would find at your local shops, on the stalls do not forget to haggle!! walking away from the store is a guaranteed way to drop the price by 25%

on the top is a very large mini golf course right next to the large taxi rank.

at night the place comes alive, it gets super busy here at night with a large variety of clubs and nightlife that is 80% dedicated to the male gay lifestyle, although these tend to be located around the edge of the large complex it can be a bit of a eye opener if your not expecting it. so it can be easily avoided of your just after a night out, a good steak or a pint of beer.

“Jumbo Centrum - you should visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

The Jumbo Centre is easy to reach. In my opinion it is the largest and best equipped compared to various shopping malls that we are in Playa del Ingles.There you can find almost everything you need. Going there during the day, the time flies looking at the shops while in the evening it is pleasant to spend time sitting at a table in a bar listening to music and also watching the street performers.

“Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

Good for shopping and a good night out. Sparkles show bar is a must, unless you are easily offended
Lots of shops with something for everyone.
The only thing I hated was all the hawkers trying to sell you sunglasses and put things on your wrist
