We seemed to end up here whichever way we went for a walk. A few small shops but all very dated. Walked through one evening and it looked busy with some music playing in the main plaza.

I came to this place 30 years ago I guess you don't think that things will change but sadly it's not the same as is the metro centre next door which has very few shops and mostly closed and run down

the shopping centres of Playa des Ingles all seem to be built from the same squat template. Utilitarian and ugly. This one is no different. Most shops are selling cheap tat at overinflated prices. A few exceptions but they seem to struggle with buying customers. E.g used to come here for some Lladro but that shop went under many years... More

a good place to get your duty frees, smaller than yumbo but packed with all different types of shops, only thing is some retailers are a bit pushy when it comes to you browsing

Bags were very significantly overpriced,the merchants were keen to offer discounts without asking for one.After browsing all the stalls,we found a stall that sold a holdall and a hanbag at a good price.There are many flights of stairs in and around the centre which was a bit of a problem. With bars and restaurants in and around the centre.
