Very dirty shopping centre and not many shops. Only big chain stores. Don't waste your time driving there if you're from out of town. Parking is very dear too!

Great place to shop because of the wide array of stores. It also has a wide selection of restaurants. But, to echo a previous comment, it could really benefit from air conditioning. It was very warm in there, which limited the amount of shopping I could do because I was so uncomfortablely hot.

great selection of shops in a bright and clean environment. unfortunately after a while it simply gets too hot- why can't shops have air conditioning in this country? Toilets not very well signposted but once found were clean and queues moved quickly. lots of eating choices.

Lovely place to shop. Particularly impressed with the outside food area, feels like you are on holiday abroad!! :) We ate at Frankie and Benny's which was our first experience there! Loved the cocktails and the food was great! Would definitel recommend. Special mention to our Waiter Karlos who made our experience especially enjoyable! Thanks.

Parking charges are an absolute fortune, only Bonus is that you do pay on exit so you don't need to worry about getting back to the car in time. If you're even a minute over 2 hours though the parking cost doubles... Plenty if shops to suit all tastes, although a lot are expensive brand shops so perhaps not to... More
