The Atlantico Shopping Centre (or in Spanish, "Centro Comercial Atlantico") has been chosen by us as the BEST shopping centre for 2011-2016. It is only 15 minutes drive from Maspalomas & Playa del Ingles. We feel that the quality of the shopping experience is really world-class here. This has been kept up to world class standards since it opened, and that is why we recommend it.
What can we find there? Over a hundred quality shops and free parking space for over 2000 cars. The total area is 127,000 square meters, distributed in two floors. We have a very big Carrefour hypermarket which has a huge selection of items at great prices, and also smaller shops like Zara, Mango, a Santander bank, etc. There are also good restaurants and fast food ones like McDonald's (actually there are two McDonald's one is inside in front of Carrefour, and the other one is outside, it is a drive-through, in the parking lot, so you can get your burgers without getting down from your car). If you don't have a proper internet connection at your hotel or apartment, you can buy a SIM card from the Yoigo stall or the Phone House shop.

There is a big sign outside the Carrefour hypermarket, where they explain the delivery charges, phone ordering, their single queue system, and their facilities and accessibility for the disabled.
The "Natura" Spanish franchise shop has a friendly big bear at the entrance.

Parking spaces for pregnant women are painted red. Both types are conveniently located near the entrance. We have seen police giving tickets to the wrongly parked cars, quite a few times, when drivers (who are neither disabled nor pregnant, and too lazy to look for parking) place their cars in the special parking spots. If you don't get parking on the top, there is more underneath, and if you still don't find, you can park on the street, but it is extremely rare to find this shopping mall's parking 100% full.
Free Wifi internet connection is available throughout the whole centre.
Plenty of taxis are always available. The taxi stand is right in front of the main entrance.
