San Juan Shopping Center
Ranked #75 of 104 things to do in Punta Cana
Attraction details
Reviewed 22 September 2013

Over priced! This mall isn't even a low end American outlet mall. The prices were high and the merchandise was not good. The grocery store was an interesting but we didnt buy anything. The ice cream vender was okay. I would not recommend this trip to anyone.

We visited here twice during our holiday, it is cheaper and has more shops than Palma real which is another "mall" in punta cana, it has also got a supermarket where you can pick up any kind of normal shopping for supplies that you might need rather than paying the ridiculous prices they try charging you in most hotel shops. It also has a Pizza hut but be aware that it is more local than tourist and the menus and staff are spanish which is to be expected as it is not in the resort area.

We were looking for a more "local" experience. Did find some really good Dominican stuff here but felt like there was a lot of US stores here. Liked the ice cream vendor. Didn't have time to check out the grocery, which would have been fun. Taxi to the mall was quite expensive. Best if your resort provides transport.

San Juan was a lovely trip that we made in the evening, the journey was calmed and relaxed and we had 2 hours to explore the shopping centre. I would recommend going here :)

We wanted to visit a shopping center to get a feel for the area. This place was awful. Some of the stores had some cute items but it wasn't worth the amount of time we spent there. One nice thing was that our hotel, NOW Larimar, provided free transportation to and from. The bad part about it was that we couldn't leave on our own. We had finished looking at the stores within about a half hour. We were stuck there for a total of two hours. We ended up just waiting outside to be picked up by our shuttle bus.
One tip...if you decide to go here make sure you barter!
