  • I am lover of books by what the opening of this new library has excited me a lot. I went with a friend and we were amazed of the number of books in different categories which had, included also a space for children and an area for presentations of books, raffles, among other things. Employees are ready to help you with the search of books, as the library counts as a café in which you can taste different desserts and coffees. That day was the owner and was accessible to talk and take pictures with those who would like to.

  • Very nice mall with many shops! Good selection of food, especially this one salad place. It included big department stores such as Macy's and JCPenney. Big difference to our British shopping centres.  more »
  • Shopping with traditional American brands and locations. Good food and shopping options, but ... Where's the Bathroom? After running enough for 3 floors of the Shopping Center we discovered that the toilets are in the shops ... a different concept than we have here, with large, clean restrooms and for free!

  • It's huge! Like, really huge. They have everything you expect a big mall to have. The only toilets i found was on the third floor with the food court. A bit hassle if you really have to go. Taxi and valet parking right outside the main entrance. Stores for everyone. If you're only visiting, you should know that you probably won't have time to go through the entire mall in one day.
  • "The Mall of San Juan is better!" Said no one ever from Nelson Vallejo. This guy clearly doesn't know what he's even talking about. Never leave valuables inside your car and you shouldn't have problems, especially if you leave the doors unlocked, then you're at fault. This mall cherished me the most since I was young, and had no issues of my car being stolen ever since because I have common sense, especially since there is good security. Nelson Vallejo, if you're reading this, EDUCATE YOURSELF INSTEAD OF COMPLAINING ABOUT YOUR CAR STOLEN BECAUSE YOU EITHER LEFT YOUR VALUABLES INSIDE OR LEFT THEM UNLOCKED. And that issue is YOUR problem, not ours or the security., so maybe then, reconsider your review and think about what you've done, Mr. Nelson Vallejo.
  • Upscale shopping center or mall. Major stores are well represented, for example Sears. JC Penny, Macy's among others. Has a food court with ample choices of major known fast food chains. Ample parking with very good security. A pleasant shopping experience can be had here.
  • First place I was taken to on my first trip to Puerto Rico. Being a solid gringo, I was surprised at how big and nice this mall was. The only downside would be the parking situation. It was pretty crazy. Perhaps it was just the time of the day though.
  • Beautiful and Clean. Huge variety of stores. Reasonable prices. Best food court in PR.
