this one is almost walking distance from the Hilton. Otherwise it's a free shuttle that comes/goes every half an hour. We were looking for a particular T-shirt we had seen at the hotel for $23. We weren't yet inside when the young lady told us that everything is off 50%. We saw the exact shirt and she quoted us $49 but today it's $25. Not a good start. Prices weren't showing anywhere. My husband wanted to pay with a credit card. No, that would cost an extra 15%; we should pay with cash (which we didn't bring). There was a lot of back/forth because we were ready to leave. Finally settled for $25 with a credit card. We learned that their sales tax is 16.5%. It was abundantly clear that the shops charge whatever they want to but to get a decent price you'll have to pay cash. The shopping center itself looks rather nice. There are some jewelry and coffee shops, a grocery/liquor store where the lady hovered over me every second while walking around, the usual souvenir shops with less than authentic Jamaican items, etc. The shady benches were welcome. While waiting for the bus a Peacock came strutting along. That was the best part. When you arrive there's a sign talking about Duty Free. Trust me, nothing is. You'll probably do much better at store frequented by locals. Ask your hotel staff. We had enough after 1/2 hour.

Ok for short visit. Good for jewelry and watches. Has a Cafe Blue for Blue Mountain Coffee (42 US Dollars per pound beans) and a Coffee and Spice shop for Jablum(45) and Island Blue (42). Lots of souvenir shops but really lacks a duty free liquor shop. The prices in souvenir shops can be nearly 2/3 times airport prices. I wanted coffee so was pleased with prices. The coffee in Coffee and Spice shop at airport is more expensive for same brands. Try the Port Royal cart at airport. Coffee Roasters is good price (39).

at the end of mall, there is cigar shop, and across the street is grocery/gift shop. DO NOT GO THERE!! After shopping at cigar shop, when I entered shop they treated me like thief--while perusing some jerk sauce, another sales person stood so close to me she was almost touching me! After spending over $300 on cigars, did they think I was going to steal a $5 jar of jerk (I was only customer, at back of store). How insulting!!
