“Dangerous at night time.”
Review of Kasbah

Kasbah
Attraction details
Reviewed July 18, 2013

Be aware that currently there is a criminal gang targeting young people in the Kasbah, weekends after midnight seems to be the time.

Their method is quite simple, one guy will approach you and go straight for for your handbag, or even put his hands in to your pockets - at the sign of any resistance his minder will attack you, and I mean properly, not just pushing and shouting.

The stolen items are then handed on to a third and fourth person, who disappear into the crowd.

The Police, well, when we tried to explain what had happened to our boys they were openly aggressive to us - a female witness also tried to get them to intervene - the minder punched her in the face, in front of the Police officers, who did absolutely nothing!

Both our lads needed hospital treatment.

The Thompson rep. told us that her colleage had his iphone stolen in the same way, they are told not to react in order to avoid being assaulted.

If you are looking for a family holiday with late teens, make sure they are in by midnight, or even better, find somewhere else to go on holiday.

Good luck if you've already booked.

Playa del ingles is pretty run down and dated but this place is also plagued with touts that really will not take no for an answer. The bars are awful and when we went it was pretty quiet. We had read the reviews saying the same but didn't expect it to be as bad as it was. The Yumbo centre is better for both shopping and bars but is still pretty poor and very dated. If you want a more up-market night out get a taxi to Meloneras, it will cost about €5 but has lots a great shops, restaurants and bars and is great for a relaxed shopping trip or evening out.

Hassled by touts, offered huge amounts of illicit substances and constantly pestered. Such a shame as people like that meant you cannot enjoy a saunter round the place. Just dreadful! Fine if you like excess boozing and drugs. Lots of hassle to go to "leer at ladies" as one tout called it! Just awful......... Avoid!

Avoid this place the touts are a complete nightmare.. If they left it might be a nice place to use. It is also dogged by African prostitutes late at night and touts for pole dancing knocking shops.

If you want a bar that plays the music you love at home then this is the place.....no frills, just drink, music and good people. Heavy metal, heavy rock, rock..the best place you could ever wish for open from 9-4 every night. When we found it, it was like heaven. You can write down what you want to hear ad they play it for you.
All sorts come in, all nationalities and the local bikers. Make sure you pack plenty of your metal and rock T-shirts so you can wear a different one every time. Prices are great, 2.50 euros for a large beer, 4 euros for a Jim Beam and coke, 4.50 for a JD and coke and we are talking a good measure. They sell their own shirts a 8 euros, good logo and well made. We were there in May and we will be back next year.
