“Yumbo Centre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014

Always busy and full of life but the later it gets the more gay bars open.
Liked Eden Bar and Ricky's Bar. Sparkles Bar is also a good show.

“Barraunda bar.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2013 via mobile

We always have a great bit of fun in the Yumbo and totally enjoy the buzz that makes the place.
It's a place where people just put their differences aside and enjoy life.
We love the food and the bars (but we kinda feel as though we are intruding in the gay bars) we were made feel 100 % welcome everywhere we went.
Our favourite is Barraunda bar on the 2nd level.
Claudio and David are so welcoming and they make the finest Mojito's I have ever tasted and are a great laugh to be with.
Both myself and my girlfriend totally enjoyed our few cocktails most evenings.
The restaurants are really great and the food is quite amazing.
We visited Miramar and enjoyed some wonderful meals at reasonable prices.
Centrum is another restaurant that has and will continue to stand the ravages of time and continue to serve fantastic food in a friendly setting.
The bizarre's are as expected and these people need to survive so they tend to be a bit annoying but just put up with it.
Cafe de Paris is another great spot for a coffee and watch the world pass by.
All in all we had a great laugh and were made feel welcome .
My advice is to go there with an open mind, you will see male couples and you will see female couples but sure they put up with us and they don't point or laugh at a male and female couple .
The drag shows are a bit cheeky but a good laugh and you will be made more than welcome.
During our visit we felt safe and unthreatened.

“anything goes ...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

As a lot of reviewers say, the shop owners do no get the Brits - we want to be left alone to browse, not be constantly pestered - but, we all know this is what happens, so if you do not want to be hassled (in these bazarre style shops), simply shop elsewhere in a main store.

The evening bars/restaurants are second to none, all very friendly, comfortable and amazing places to sit and people watch. There really is something for everyone here.

Spent time in a few of the bar/restaurants, but the most memorable was Wunder Bar, with a very warm and welcoming host. It was a little chilly on some of the evenings, so their lovely fleece throws were a welcome touch.

Having the Yumbo Centre nearby to your hotel makes this holiday easier to enjoy, which is why I go back.

“Love the yumbo centre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013

We go to Gran Canaria at least twice a year and most days make a bee line for the Yumbo Centre. We always go to Buddies to eat as the food is fantastic and the atmosphere is very friendly.
Each time my wife and I go to Gran Canaria, we always have a tattoo done in Canary Tattoo on the ground floor of the Yumbo Center by Paul. Paul is probably the best tattooist that I have ever met. He is an absolute master.

“The ultimate touristtrap”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2013 via mobile

Boring and uncomfortable shopping, not all shoppers want to be hustle, we sometime like to browse on our own. All the stores are the same and even when you dont want to buy anything they wont take no for an answer and then offer it for half the price. Went there once and not again.
