Does anyone have recommendations where to have lunch on Monday?
Try Mr. Kale or The New Rustico (note from admin: The New Rustico is not open for lunch, but I’ll still keep the recommendation here for a dinner recommendation)
Sawadee Meloneras should be open for lunch and is delicious. And Tavolo14 has great pizza and is open all day.
Is there a dancing school/workshops in the south to learn salsa and bachata?
There is bachata class on Thursday at El Tablero. And Stop In Brazil in Playa del Inglès, I think they have some classes on Friday evening also.
MOJITO SUR in the Kashbah Shopping Center and Stop In Brazil. Both for dance classes and to go out dancing.
Who’s got recommendations for bars/clubs in Playa del Inglés for a girls only night?
Is China White / Pacha still a thing? They had EDM last time I went like 100 years ago. But honestly best night out in the South for me is MamaJuana. It does have regeaton but the vibe and place are fantastic!
Discoteca Tropical has techno sometimes
Mama Juana or Chester (07-10-2022)
Any recommendations for food/drinks/dance in Maspalomas?
Pizzería Pomodoro&Mozzarella for pizza napolitana (in El Tablero). And for Italian in Puerto de Mogan, try A Casa Mia.
Basilico pizzería y restaurante in San Fernando.
Maspalomas: Restaurante LoLa is nice (food), Good Vibes (food & cocktails), B2BurgerBar (beers & burgers), Calma Chicha (food, bit more expensive, but very good), Parque Romantico (food, sounds romantic but is also fine to go with friends), El Segundo Muelle (food, Peruvian), Calma Café (breakfast/brunch/lunch) and ofcourse, Kilometro00, the gourmet pasta place I’m always talking about!
1) Tipsy Hammock is a good bar.
2) The Irish Tavern: it’s quite cheap and there is more youth.
For club, people suggested me Aqua Ocean Club, but I haven’t been there myself.
There are two main shopping centers with nightlife:
1) Yumbo, main place for LGBTQ+ community
2) Kasbah, I saw more English people there
For food: El Churrasco, you have to make a reservation. For icecream and crepes I recommend Soul Penguin.
Cant recommend ENOUGH a tapas place called WAPA TAPA in the Yumbo Centre in Maspalomas! We had 8 different tapas and 4 different deserts. Tasted perfect. They normally ask for a reservation a day upfront over WhatsApp.
If you’re looking for burgers, try B2 Burgerbar! They have great burgers and a huge selection of local and international beers.
