“Tourist trap!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014 via mobile

Save your money! We stayed at the rose hall beach suites and rode the free shuttle. Unless you want to pay $40 for a little souvenir or t-shirt, save yourself the time, money and effort of this tourist trap. Might as well get your souvenirs at the airport!

“Lots of Jewellery shops”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

Lovely little mall of tourist-oriented and jewellery shops.
Convenient from Hilton Rose Hall. Would like more distinctive Jamaican - made products, other than coffee and tschotkes.

“Cute and Dull”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

Nice place, free tranportation from hôtels, and cruise ships. For that matter better shop there when there is no ships in port. Easier to deal (negotiate) a good price. Some items are Duty free. Mostly jewelleries, and gift stores. So not much choice in what is offered. Clean location well guarded against looters and other beggars, wich there are plenty in Jamaica.

“Not too bad”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

My daughter and I shopped here on Christmas Eve 2013. We found a couple of pieces of jewelry for reasonable prices (you do need to negotiate). It was a nice experience, the people were pleasant and it was a nice change of scenery from laying on the beach all day. :) Not sure I would pay to go, but free shuttle from the hotel was perfect.

“Too expensive!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

I like that it is for tourists only. I don't like that it is so expensive! The t-shirts and liquor at Rose Hall are MORE expensive than what is sold at Montego Bay airport! I've never heard of buying things at an airport to save money but in this case, it really is cheaper. That goes to show just how expensive the Shops at Rose Hall is for shopping.
