Been here 10 years ago in my memory it was much better then. The strip is nice for having a beer and partying, but don't expect anything spectacular. No good looking clubs, no trendy bars more like cheap beer and shabby bars. Good to have a party but nothing more. Don't eat here the restaurants all serve the same : Chicken piri piri, paella, spaghetti and don't forget the daily specials (all week the same special). Lots of people said it before me this place could be somewhere in the UK as well nothing special about it.

Touts for every bar but you can negotiate good freebies and they do remember you if you go past another day and give you better deals! Can be a rip off if you're not a bit cheeky! Fairly decent atmosphere, no real trouble. Most are merry rather than totally out of it and bars care for those who get messy. Most places play dance music til 4am then there's a few clubs open til 6 or 7 and this was only Easter - high season is 24/7. A few tat shops and some more interesting ones if you look for them. The further up towards Montechero you go, the more places have shut down and the area feels more dodgy, even in the day. Stay around the main bars and you'll be safe though steer clear of the blokes who sit on the wall offering anyone and everyone something illegal! Quite a few older people rather shocked/insulted/overwhelmed/scared by this.

This place is a great night out with many bars playing good types of music and offering free shots. The atmosphere is fairly friendly however it does get quite annoying people trying to pull you into their bars all the time. There is also a lot of locals that visit the strip who can be quite filthy and disgusting with their words. All in all tho worth a visit

We think the strip is a bit run down, there are shops and restaurants that have closed down

It used to be a good place to buy presents to take home but the shops that are there are all the same type and selling tacky stuff.

We wanted to buy a football kit for our grandchildren and it cost a lot more there than in the old town shops, where we bought it cheaper and it was the same kit!
