  • Wasn't what I expected at all. Huge open space. Lots of shops / supermarkets, stalls, retail shops. And lots and lots of gay bars. Quiet enough in the day. Nice for lunch. But nighttime I suppose can depend on the month you go can be extremely busy.. great live bands and concerts happen here also.
  • The Yumbo, as it is known, consists of a very large paved square, surrounded by three levels, these contain , bars (mainly gay) on the ground ,with others on the first and second levels. There are also many shops, based on the tourist market, which remain open till very late. A large selection of restaurants are also present, Chinese,Pizza places , of various standards, Mexican, the best and largest steak restaurant is Martel , which I have frequented for over thirty years, is excellent, which a fantastic menu and relaxed service. Large shows are presented in the square, at special times of fiesta, these usually have a large stage , great set, and brilliant lighting. Spanish TV often broadcast these events, which are free to watch. The centre is being refurbished, with new street lighting and lifts, which make it easier to get around the levels, for those less mobile. Something for everyone, even a couple of sex shops !
  • Been coming here for last 18 years. You can get a vast range of restaurants, on the whole the quality is very good. Fave for breakfast, brunch and lunch is Buddies, excellent quality and well presented food. By day the centre is bustling with shops and loads of bars and places to chill in the sun. By night when all the shops have closed, loads of cabaret and clubs open, mainly catering for the gay community, but the cabaret bars are great for families. Come to the Yumbo to have a laugh and you’ll not be disappointed, just don’t be too serious !!
  • Great place to shop and to eat. Lots of choices of restaurants with different menus. The only downfall is that it seems to be all gay bars. I'm not homophobic at all but would like to see at least one bar/restaurant where there not all gay people smooching and being camp lol
  • What a place! We tried all the rest and keep returning to the best CC Yumbo. Massive choice of shops and restaurants to suit all pockets. It's probably easier to say what can't be bought than what can! Always worth a walk around.
