“SM "They Got It All For You!"”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

SM City Cebu is one of the leading and pioneering shopping destinations in the Queen City of the south. Aside from its strategic location that is very accessible, you can also see almost everything that you are looking for. As it is said that they got it all for you.

“Perhaps Your One-Stop Shop in Cebu”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

This could be the first mall I will always visit, if only it's not a bit far from the city centre. If you're travelling in Cebu and looking for some souvenirs to buy but is too lazy to roam around the city, SM is the place to go. You can buy anything from souvenir shirts, apparel and even Cebuano delicacies. But of course, the prices are a bit high compared to the ones from the original sources.

If you're planning to shop in the department stores during the weekends, consider coming around 10am when the malls are opened. By 11:30am, the mall tends to be crowded and the lines in the cashiers / checkout counters tend to be really long. So if you don't have the patience, come earlier.

“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.
