“Interesting Theme Mall”
Reviewed 4 May 2007

We went to this mall 2 times during our recent trip to Vegas. The mall has a theme to it, and is supposed to look like an exotic marketplace in North Africa (or so the brochures said). We found the location very accesible being in the middle of the strip, so getting there was an easy walk from our hotel.

The shops were so so, and a little on the pricey side. However, the atmosphere was really cool. We took a few pictures there. The designers of the place spent a lot of time and effort on the little details, as even the garbage cans, bathrooms and benches followed the theme.

If you want to find mall information, look for the people riding around on the motorized scooters. We thought this idea was really cool and a good way to get around.

“Not impressed”
Reviewed 27 October 2006

We thought that the Desert Passage looked like a cheap cousin to the shopping areas found at other casinos on the strip. The rainstorm was interesting but other than that - - not impressed.

“Our favorite stores”
Reviewed 29 July 2006

Neat indoor shops. Art galleries. Reasonably priced shops compared to Forum and Grande Canal. Also Max's Cafe...the best unadvertised deal on breakfast serving from 7-10AM.

“Unimpressed”
Reviewed 6 August 2005

We visited the Desert Passage Shops in May 2004. Compared to those at Caesar's & the Venetian, they were very poor. They tried to get the same ceiling effects & failed miserably. The shops themselves did not impress.

“Awesome shops”
Reviewed 20 October 2004

This was a great place for shopping. Anything that you want was here. From fashions to Halloween costumes. You will not believe how many shops are in this place and most are resonably priced. Check out the guy who sells the rugs near the one end of the shops. These rugs felt awesome, but I couldnt take one home because I already bought too much from the other shops and didnt have the room. Wait for the thunderstorm, which happens every half hour or so. Its something to see.
