Owner description: Madrid Xanadú(R), property of Ivanhoé Cambridge, is the benchmark for shopping and leisure centres in Spain. The Centre has more than 220 premises, including 21 large establishments counting among stores, leisure and restaurants. The element that makes the Centre different is the Madrid SnowZone, the only indoor snow slope in Spain. Added to this is the broad leisure offer, oriented to family and youth with 15 movie theaters, mini golf, thematic restaurants, bowling alley, kids club and much more. Madrid Xanadú also offers a unique selection of national and international leading brands and Tiendas El Corte Inglés and Hipercor as the driving force of the Centre. In 2010 Madrid Xanadú launched Phase II of the development of the Centre, with Bricor and Decathlon as its driving force. As from September 2010, Madrid Xanadú hosts the first store in Spain of Apple and of Hollister. In 2013 Bershka, Nike, Pull&Bear, Lefties or H&M have chosen Madrid Xanadú to launch their new store images. Finally, the recent opening of the first stores in Madrid of Forever 21, Violeta by Mango or Kiabi consolidates the role of benchmark of Madrid Xanadú for the main global brands.

“Big shopping mall with loads of activities”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2012

We went for the Snowzone ski centre but also enjoyed the mall for its shopping, loads of restaurants, movies, bowling and minigolf. It's a big place with El Corte Ingles (Spain's main department store), Primark and most of the brand name stores as well as lots of unusual ones. The only downside is the location out in the middle of nowhere.

“Great place in a big shopping mall!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2012

We visited especially so my son could take snowboarding lessons. He had a great instructor named Chema who I would highly recommend. It was a great place and provided a great experience. The lessons were excellent and the environment felt very safe. I could watch from windows in the surrounding shopping centre or restaurants. We can't wait to go back again!

“Best thing we did in Madrid”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2012

We literally couldn't find anything to do in Madrid and had scheduled Xanadu Shopping Centre on the 3rd day, we couldn't wait to ski in Summer! We took the metro to Principe Pio & then got on a bus to Xanadu, all up was a 30-45 min trip. We walked around the shops at first and then I just started shopping and ended up with so many bags, too many to leave in a locker, so we had to skip the skiing and fun activities upstairs. They have heaps of things to do, you can go kart, play games, the food area is massive with cool restaurants. The shops are really great, especially for girls, you will find sooo many things to buy and at reasonable costs. Skiing costs $25pp, plus $38pp to hire an outfit - all for an hour. So can be pretty expensive for an hour activity. But loved the shops!!!

“Amazing!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2012

This is a huge shopping centre which is full of surprises. There is a huge multiscreen cinema, but the biggest attraction without doubt is the spectacular indoor ski slope. It is impossible to pass it and not stop and look for a while. Alongside is a really lovely crazy golf course, themed on Himalayan 8000 metre peaks. There are many beautiful plaves to sit and eat or drink anything from a quick coffee or ice cream up to a good meal. Xanadu is open every day of the year, even Christmas Day, although the shops shut Christmas Day and New Year. There is a huge variety of shops and stalls and it takes a number of trips to get familiar with everything that the centre has to offer,
