“Very pressure oriented shopping mall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Travelers:
Review based on 2 adults, 2 kids (5 and 3) traveling.

Pros:
- Best looking shopping facility there in cancun compared to that of the Kulkucan Plaza and especially Plaza Caracol.
- had places for the kids to take photos with...characters that is like those dressed up as iron man or bumbelbee
- Lots of restaurants to choose from
- Had a Pharmacy there
- Centralized location
- Safe atmosphere

Cons:
- Lots of pressure of by the vendors for tours, coming into their attractions/restaurants.
- Was not really kid friendly because of lots of high end stores (middle class issue)
- Not stroller friendly.

Travelers tips:
- Dont make eye contact with the vendors because they will harass you if you do.
- Know if your kids are able to go on certain excursions before trying to book as most of the tour reserve individuals do not know the kid rules. They tried to sell us a tour for the parasailing and said our kids could go but found out later than you have to be a certain height to go on them.

“Great Location Everything You Need”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

We stayed at the AMAZING Live Aqua again for our 2nd Cancun visit which is located right across the street. We prefer to travel light and not check bags which means we can't pack liquids in high amounts like Shampoo, Conditioner, and Sunscreen. The hotels sell this stuff but it is MUCH cheaper at this mall. Also there are A LOT of shops for fun things to bring back home for family and friends. We look forward to going back to Live Aqua next year and returning back to this mall for all our needs.

“This is the place to find rude locals”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

The locals do not like tourists and will lie to you if you ask any questions about activities or restaurants. We stopped by the mall a few times to check out the area and to see where our excursions were meeting at. The locals are very rude and unhelpful people, which amazes me since they love to take our money.

“Beautiful Mall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Great place to shop and eat. It was in walking distance from The Beach Palace Hotel.When you enter and you walk over the bridge the first store on your right with Mexican souvenirs has the best prices.

“Pretty, upscale shopping on the lagoon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

I love this shopping center! They have two of my favorite stores, Pull&Bear and Tous. Its a very pretty outdoor shopping center with lots of eating places, a movie theater, aquarium, and tons of upscale shopping. The only reason I don't give Plaza Isla a 5 is because they are currently under construction and charge for parking. Other than that I have no complaints.
