This mall was disappointing. There were some empty storefronts and some stores even closed. What was open was your typical tourist junk. We walked into one jewelry store across the street and the sales lady did nothing but complain about a couple who had just...More

Fun and colorful mall, lots of unique shops, some souvenir type and some boutique type. Neat little open air space in the middle where you can just sit and enjoy the views.

Some big brand shops which are very expensive and then your average souvenir shops. However we spent something like $17.85 in a shop and the owners were like 'can we keep the change' I obviously said no, but I still found that very unfamiliar and...More

This is a main shopping area but it closes early and is more of a tourist viewing opportunity then hardcore shopping. I still recommend an hour or so of looking.

This place closes really early in the evening (I believe 6pm), so it's not a great place to go later in the day. They are missing out on a lot of $$ to be made by those visiting the island and the cruise ships. It's...More

Not really sure - most places seem to open around 10:00 am and close between 5 and 8 pm. If there is a cruise ship in port they will be open as long as people are still in town. Many stores close to observe Jewish holidays... More
