“Parking was difficult”
Reviewed 29 July 2014 via mobile

The parking lot is a zoo. Full of frenzied tourists looking for too few parking spots. We came at 6 pm so the place fills up with diners and people there to see the sunset. Maybe other times of the day it isn't that bad. The stores are a lot of high end places so no bargains to be had. There was a woman singing in the center which was very nice and a whaling museum which is closed in the evening. You pay to park and then get your ticket validated for free. Doesn't work out so well with all the expensive shops. You might as well just pay the $3 per half hour.

“Upscale shopping and good food”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

The shops here are lovely and upscale--mostly clothing stores like Tommy Bahama and designer shops. Not much in the way of tacky tourist souvenirs! And a great restaurant--the Hula Grill--definitely worth trying. Has a fun vibe and really great, local food.

“Nice place to shop and eat”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

Nice mall, clean and modern, with sometimes a free show one hour at 7pm (i saw a Hula dance show), i has 3 nices beach restaurants.Make reservations or you will wait 90 minutes or eat at 8:30. There is a nice beach to hang out. Free parking if you buy something or eat there. I liked it.

“Nice EXPENSIVE stores”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

I'm a Coach fanatic. I own Coach everything. The Coach store in Whalers Village is way overpriced. Prices are marked up in that store significantly.
