“Feeling of the city mall”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

A typical SM mall chain. More organized compared to Ayala Center Cebu where one could be lost, a trademark of an Ayala Center mall. lol. Inside SM, it's easier to know where you are and where you are going even if it's the first time for you to come in. Somehow, all SM chain of malls have this design.

“Never disappinted”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

You can never be disappointed with Cebu's SM center. It is easy to get around once you get the general picture of where things are.

“Second Best”
Reviewed 27 February 2014 via mobile

It's a typical SM Mall with typical SM Stores. For those who are not familiar with SM, it's the largest chain of malls in the Philippines with just about everything you need from diapers to furnitures to smart TVs. They also have entertainment sections like arcades, bowling lanes, and cinemas. This particular mall is one of the few that offers iMAX. And then of course there are all sorts of restaurants for hungry shoppers.

However, SM Cebu looks old and dated compares to other SM Malls. I wish they could improve on making the mall look more visually appealing. If you're looking for a better alternative, Ayala Center would give you the same benefits without feeling like walking in a box.

“Everything under one roof”
Reviewed 1 February 2014

Safe and clean huge shopping centre in Cebu. Very clean toilets, and loads of eating places. SM is like Myer, you can buy pretty much anything here. Lots of transport options from here too.
