The mall does pick up from hotels for free. The catch is you have to get three validations from stores in the mall on you pamphlet. This is a good place to get souvenirs if you only have resort shops to buy from. Plus its nice to get out of the resort for a couple hours and see some of... More

Medium sized touristy shopping mall that provides shuttles to and from major resorts. There were many stores that carried the normal cheap, but interesting, souvenirs, magnets, carvings, paintings, etc. They also had clothing stores, which were above what I would pay for clothes of that style. I would recommend an hour or two to see everything, buy your DR and... More

A free shuttle was offered at our resort, To qualify you must have your booklet stamped at 3 separate location in the center.

I purchased it in the grocery store for Approx. $25.00 Can. and we bought... More

This mall is not what I would call a shoppers paradise but there are some nice shops worth a look. We got free transportation to the mall but in order to be brought back to your resort for free you must get a card stamped by 3 specific merchants in the mall, the third being all the way at the...

We rented a car at our resort and drove the 20ish minutes into Punta Cana. I found the shops a mix of ridiculously overpriced and quite reasonable. Don't be in a hurry to buy something the first time you see it because chances are, you'll find it on sale somewhere ele in the centre. Most of the clerks spoke English... More

The mall offers a nice mix of stores and the prices are generally better than the resorts. The highlight for me was that I wanted to bring back some Dominican rum and coffee and the SuperPola supermarket had a nice selection and easily the best prices you will find anywhere. I bought 3 bottles of high end rum and pound... More

Make sure to make reserve the bus to get to the shopping centre, it is free to go there and back on the bus. Make sure you have American money as it is hard to change Canadian money unless you go to a bank. Had fun looking though but a little expensive in some stores

Free shuttle to the shopping center where you have to have three validation stamps from different points in the mall or they charge you for the trip. Tourist trap! And of course, the driver wants tips!
