“Xmas shopping”
Reviewed 22 December 2013

Situated on the EN 125 about 1 kilometre from the town of Guia stands the Algarve Shopping centre.
Home to over 100 hundred shops it caters for most needs and has a very large Continente supermarket as it's hub. Upstairs there is a large variety of eateries and a multi screen cinema. There is both ample parking and seating and is a good day out for families. Next door are more shops including Nike outlet store and Iceland. Opposite is a large Makro and Leroy Merlin which is a very large DIY Store.

“Day out shopping! ”
Reviewed 5 December 2013 via mobile

We had a couple of days left of our holiday & wanted to take a few gifts home, someone recommended this shopping centre so we got a taxi there... It was better than we expected, pandora, Levi, Claire's accessories and a few more English shops which was great then a few nick nack shops... A few places to eat also although we didn't eat but looked lovely, I would go back here if we went to Portugal again and would definitely recommend it!!

“Lovely Centre”
Reviewed 30 November 2013

A nice wee afternoon out with some lovely shops, and great seating areas with settees and side tables. Lots of choice in the food court, and everywhere is very clean. There were sales on when we were here and got some good bargains.

“Not worth a trip to go there”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

The building looks fairly nice but it is just another shopping mall filled with clothing chain stores with everything looking mass produced and the same. The shops are filled with lower priced goods and there is nothing unique or different to be found there. Why travel to a foreign country on holiday to waste time doing this? Algarve has many unique and unusual little shops and boutiques that are far better for finding something nice and different, or a gift, and they are also filled with bargains. I particularly like Loule and would rather do my food and clothing shopping there anyday. Rus 5 de Outubro has wonderful shops. This shopping centre is not closed and is very cold in winter anyway, especially if you choose to shop at night.
