Robinson's mall has heaps of good eating places

Many small shops good for mobile phones and tech stuff

OK department store

Excellent supermarket

Males beware this place is often frequented by 'working girls'

“Many choices in one mall”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

This is my favorite mall in Manila because it has a lot of space to walk, not too crowded, and offers many things. There are many shops to choose from other than the Robinson's Department Store. There is also a variety of restaurants to dine in. For beauty and spa services, there are many available. It offers movie houses which could be for guaranteed or free seatings. The mall offers a basement parking and a multi-level parking attached to the mall. Like most Robinson's malls, it also has government service kiosk like Philhealth, PAG-IBIG, etc. The mall caters mostly to the middle class market but has shops for those a little above and below it.

“You have it all, a stone throw from our hotel.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

Restaurants, Grocery, Dry goods, Theater, Saloons, Flower shops, Appliances, and many more you name it; they have it for you.

For every meal you can choose to find your favorite. Shopping? you can make your choice within the complex too. Entertainment? One can freely choose the movie she/he wants.For high-end shopping you can see for your self the various establishments that can answer your needs. and many more.

So comfortable hang out, it is air conditioned.

“Only Good For 1 Thing: Wasting Time”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

As far as shopping malls go, Robinsons Place is the crappiest in Asia.

First of all, it is so poorly organized and laid out that you need a map to find anything. However, there are no maps! Unlike in all major malls across North America or Europe, there are only a small handful of mall directories inconveniently and inconspicuously located throughout the mall. The few they have, if you ever find them, are electronic directories and often don't work. Rather than list the various stores in the mall, you have to first know the store name so you can type it in and see if it can be found.

In the unlikely event your search is successful and it shows you the location of the establishment you seek, you have two further obstacles to overcome. One is that the resulting map is so poorly drafted and unclear that it could only have been drawn by one of the retarded monkeys on The Simpsons. Second, is that the maps all draw their path to your desired location from the exact same starting point -- the north entrance to Robinsons, for example. So, if you are at the south entrance, the starting point of the map you are drawn (the "You are here! mark) is not the south entrance. Monkey. Humping. Football.

This mall is poorly laid out and crowded. In every conceivable pedestrian pathway they jam in booths and sales tables for timeshare properties, credit card applications and miracle cancer cures.

The best place to hang-out when you are around Malate.Huge place with different things to offer from grocery shopping to clothes shopping to dinning. The food court offers wide variety of choices, their are also hundreds of restaurant around to choose.Basically most of the things can be found here.

Also good is that the office of the Cebu Pacific Airline is can be find here(no other place except in the airport).
