Don't be put off by the state of the building. A bit post-apocalyptic. The welcome is great, with several restaurants and a huge supermarket. Sad to see this place in such a poor state but still definitely worth a visit. You won't be disappointed.

Very central location for Maspalomas, and very disappointing. Personally I would pull this delapidated shopping centre down and build an ‘old town’ style complex, similar to the one in Morgan, which is something this area could really do with, there’s certainly a vast space surrounding...More
