San Juan Shopping Center, Punta Cana

2.4
Browse the goods on sale at San Juan Shopping Center, a mall that caters to locals and tourists alike. Unlike other malls close by, the center doesn't cater solely to international visitors, so you won't find wall-to-wall souvenir shops here. Instead, you'll find a large supermarket where locals do their groceries, and over 60 other stores selling a range of clothing, beauty, electronics, and entertainment products. The onsite movie theater provides a welcome distraction for anyone uninterested in retail therapy, and an area selling solely products made by Dominican artisans adds a nice variation to what's on offer in the modern mall.

  • It is a good place to go shopping in the area of Bavaro, good place to dine in one of its restaurant and has cinema in the area.

  • It is a small shopping centre with few shops and some of them very expensive. Some souvenirs can be bought but somewhat expensive. For this type of purchase is achieved best price racing on the beach. Transfers from the hotel to the down town Punta Cana we saw that there are others apparently more important. Transfer us cost U$ S 6 return to each. Company Alltour.

  • We decided to go to the mall. At the hotel they informed us that the transfer was free. When we arrived, we found we had to purchase a discount card to 6 dollars and that with that same card spent at the hotel in the transfer. It turns out that the famous card is then not accepted by any of the shops in the mall... PATHETIC! What I recommend is that to buy coffee, mamajuana, ron, cosmetic products and souvenirs have access to the SUPER POLA or JUMBO which are located inside the mall. To us we asked above 7 USD for a package of coffee Santo Domingo and in the supermarket got it $ 3.

  • Really nice shopping mall, they have a great variety of everything. But the part that we most enjoyed was outside of the mall there is like little shops selling souvenirs and other interesting stuff.
  • You have most of the local banks here. Here is where you can pay your light bill. There is a grocery store. And you also have Pizza Hut and Chef Pepper here as well.
  • Decent shopping experience but the best deals are on the streets near the resorts. Cozy place! Awesome bar nearby. Good food also.
  • Good place to get your shopping fix on. Check with your hotel.... chances are, the mall will come fetch you and return you after your shopping adventure because.... wait for it... you're gonna spend money there. Everything from Payless to Prada, grocery shopping, Rx, etc.
  • Was a toss up between this and palma real which has brand name stores. We chose san juan bc upon reading reviews it appears a lot of stores closed down at palma real so we thought Let's try san juan. Honestly, I don't think any locals would shop here, Prices seem inflated for tourists. I can get nicer cheaper stuff back home. There's lots of souvenir shops. I wanted a Punta cana tote bag and couldn't find one for less then 16 us dollars... So, about 24 Canadian dollars. I think that's a lot for what you're getting so I came back empty handed. We got free transportation that picked us up at our resort. They give two hours which was was way too long to be there. I was ready to leave after about 40 minutes. Would I go back there.. No, but I guess it depends what you're looking for. Would be nice if a premium outlet mall opened here. Just a suggestion, and I know the mall doesn't set prices it's the stores individually. If you hose the tourists we wont shop, and then you will lose money, and potentially not be able to keep your doors open. Keep prices competitive and your stores will flourish.
