“from a thing of beauty to a slum”

Centro Comercial Faro 2
Ranked #17 of 17 Shopping in Maspalomas
Attraction details
Reviewed 8 July 2017

PLEASE DONT BOTHER. This place has closed down due to extreme structural failurs and is positively dangerous to go near as the concrete has blown. not ONE shop remains on the spiral, which used to be amazing, The only place useful is the very reasonable supermarket in the basement

First time for us on gran canaria went off to holiday world. Great time! On the way back we spotted this great centre which looked great from a distance could not believe our eyes when we got there 99% of this complex empty just a small amount of bars restaurants and a supermarket. So why?? Well in its day this was a thriving centre accommodating the holiday bungalows that surrounded it people self catering etc however that all changed when the homes were sold off for private accommodation. This then cut the throat of the centre so to speak which slowly bled to death. Such a shame.

We visited today, hoping for some decent photos after what we'd read on tripadvisor. It's not even worth that.

The upstairs is fenced off, the ground floor gently spirals round to a lower level and instead of the 200 or more units that should be open, we found 1 supermarket (Hyper Dino) that looked pretty good, 2 restaurants ( but not particularly vegetarian friendly), 2 shops and 1 bike hire place.

It could be a great place but needs a massive investment. Why the current tenants are still there, I can't figure. It has nothing to commend it as it stands. Very sad.

We were staying at the green golf apartments so the supermarket at faro 2 was quite handy as only a 10 min walk. Certainly not a place to make a special visit. A couple of restaurants open but not busy. Can't see how it pays to stay open.
