Loved the great selection of brands carried by ECI (Sports & Outdoors). Found numerous sports tops & bottoms as well as outdoor gear by Trango at reasonable prices. Excellent shopping instant rebate system & duty free returns processing! Made shopping overseas as a tourist an enjoyable, hassle-free experience.

Great place to stop, use the loos and have a snack. We bought all our tourist knick-nacks here which were better quality than the street stuff and I enjoyed the large range of items in the camping and hunting section (hate shopping apart from gadgets)

From the moment you walk into this vast emporium all one wants to do is explore. At the front door there is w lovely little cafe with Portuguese coffee and treats, and a tourist souvenir area with everything from Fado music to cork and roosters. The store is immaculate, modern, and beautifully arranged. I think it would benefit from Ebglish... More

This is the "Macy's" of Spain and a very nice department store carrying everything you might need or want while traveling. We bought electric rollers, socks, scarves, umbrellas here - but you could also buy nice leather goods and other things that people look for specifically in Spain. Great selection and good prices.

Didn't do any shopping here but it's got all the good fashion and beauty brands. There is a restaurant and self service eatery upstairs. The food is ok but the view (if you get a window seat) is very nice.

Apart from the pleasure of this shopping experience, and the real rebajas (sale) the restaurant located on the 9th floor offers one good self service restaurant and another a la carte one where you can enjoy a good cuisine sitting and over looking the placa and a good part of the city.

Staff on the shop floors were extremely unhelpful! We visited the restaurant on the top floor at 4.30pm we asked for afternoon tea and cake, which we thought would be available. We were gestured at and grumpily shoved toward the self service cafe, which we didn't want. They apparently only serve full three course lunch/dinner from 11 am right through... More

The department store is pretty overwhelming and there is just a lot of stuff. I shopped there towards the end of July to take advantage of "rebaixes" the great deals that can be had in nearly every store. The deals didn't seam that great, but we shopped nonetheless:) On the plus side there are many brand names and designers that... More

The warehouse itself offers a big variety of clothes and other stuff and the supermarket in the basement is really fantastic. Attracted by the offer (already placarded at the airport) of 10% I requested the card at the service desk. At the cash desk I was wondering the 10% was not discounted from the price (a jacket for 165 Euro),... More
