  • The Center was an easy walk from the Hilton Hawaiian Village, but once we reached the Macy’s end of the mall, it was a very long trek to the Nordstrom and Bloomingdale’s area. We spent about 2 hours.....  more

  • Best and biggest outdoor shopping center in the world!! Located near Waikiki, and across from a beach park, and a marina. Very clean. Upscale look. Felt very safe to shop around. Lots of free parking. So many stores!! So many restaurants!! Loved their main Food Court on the Lower Level for delicious, fresh, food! Food Court is huge, and affordable. Loved watching the free entertainment located at the Center Stage near the Food Court. The Hula dancers were wonderful. This place was awesome to visit!!
  • Great selection of designer boutiques, department stores, other shops and food outlets. A nice place to walk around to pass time and find random bits and pieces you knew you need or wanted. Don’t go expecting that most shops would have sales/discounts on.
  • Great shopping and a great variety of food options ! East walk from Waikiki beach and accessible with transit etc. Ala Moans park is just across the street and it has a beautiful large beach, family oriented and beautiful sunsets. The send is nice but a lot of small white rocks. Water is warm and shallow. The Macy’s usually has great deals especially on footwear. Ross is a good place for Hawaii shirts and tops. Famous Footwear for sneakers. Wifi is a little spotty with lots of wifi networks- possible interference. Best place is in the main corridors or mall /and not food court. Mall is airy and clean but can be busy !!
  • I went during Christmas and this shopping center was beautiful! The open concept is very intriguing and the different layers make it feel like a maze. I can get over the feeling of being a little lost, because the shopping center was so fun to walk around in and look at the large variety of shops. For the most part it felt like it was made up of shops that were little bit more on the high end side which can be a good thing or a bad thing depending on what you are looking for. All around, this place was a nice place to walk around and shop.
  • Me and the GF spent 6+ hours shopping in and exploring here. This mall is amazing. A great food court, live music and plenty of high end shops to look through.
