“A bit run down, but being done up.”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

When I saw how close this was to our bungalows, I was very excited. But as we got closer, we saw it had lots of building work and looked slightly run down. Although this may be because they were half way through a refurb. Could b a fab little shopping centre when it's finished!

“So bare and sad”
Reviewed 4 March 2014 via mobile

We decided to come here and see the state of the place and couldn't believe how vacant it was. It doesn't help how the resort is so spaced out but even so, only a couple of shops and restaurants open make it such a disappointment, better off going to Varadero or Yumbo in Playa del Ingles

“Angkor Wat !”
Reviewed 14 January 2014

We went to the Faro 2 shopping center in Maspalomas in September to have a look around the Center and the Sunday market, the market is somewhere else now, there was still a few Restaurants and Bars doing what they could to keep their heads above water, but the center in general looked very run down, bleak and bear with a lot of weeds along the pathways, the way things are going it wont be too long before it's overgrown like “Angkor Wat” with troops of monkeys living in it !

“Faro 2”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

Went to faro 2 in november 2013 was really disappointed with how run down the centre is now, we have been on several occasions over our many trips to Gran Canaria and have always visited faro 2 for the restaurants and bars but now it seems that almost everywhere has closed apart from the supermarket and a couple of restaurants on the ground floor, the top floor is a crumbling mess that looks ready to fall down such a shame.

“So sad”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

I have been to Gran Canaria each year for the past 11 years and stayed in a complex in Maspalomas. Every year I return to the Faro 2 to see whether anything has changed.

My word.. it's haunting visiting this once lively, buzzing shopping centre. The place used to be packed. It used to be loud and vibrant. Having to wait to be seated in the restaurants. Piz paz which I thought would never close, has gone. Only a couple of bars left open and the supermarket. Such a shame!

The structure itself is falling apart and really should unfortunately be knocked down due to health and safety.

I will still rate this 5 star due to the memories.
