There is a huge choice of Restaurants to choose from at Plaza Mayor from Mc Donalds and Burger King to Spanish Tapas, from Kebabs to Tacos. We personally quite like 100 Montaditos and Lizarran which are tapas and very cheap, Cervecería de Sureña which is also tapas and freshly fried fish followed by El Piave for some Ice Cream. Click here for a full list of Restaurants at Plaza Mayor.
The cinema is open from around 3pm to 1am. There are 20 screens and the good news is that there are some films in Original Version. Big Fun Bowling and Family Entertainment Area is open from 10am to 1pm, 12 booking lanes and numerous amusements and kids activities
Well planned for families with young kids offering feeding rooms, baby changing rooms, eating area including food heater and bibs, play areas and you can also borrow a pushchair if you require. Another great shopping centre is Miramar Fuengirola that also offer the same services.
Special parking spaces provided, lifts, toilets and you can also rent wheelchairs if you need. For this service we recommend you have some form of Identification on you like a NIE Number or Passport Number. Go to the Information Desk for more information.
Generally the shops and supermarkets are open from 10am to 10pm Monday to Saturday. The Commercial Centre bowling and cinema are open from 10am until 1am, Sundays to Thursday and from 10am to 3am Fridays and Saturdays. They do open some Bank Holidays and some Sundays too, you can double check opening hours here.
Parking is fine during the day, but if you go at the weekend and in the evenings it can be an absolutely nightmare. Not only that….expect people to be jumping out of cars and standing in spaces waiting for their friends or partners to drive around and get it. Personally its not worth getting into a fight over, but it is extremely annoying.
Free wifi is available, petrol station, car garage, cash machines, resting areas.
