“Avoid weekends and public holidays!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

It's not so big, but has a large variety of shops, especially clothes shops, a cinema and restaurants. Try and avoid going on weekends and public holidays as it gets really overcrowded, and will not find any parking spaces.

“Worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

This large clean and glitzy indoor mall is located just off the AP7 expressway on the north side of Marbella - take the exit for "Parque Comercial". Access on and off of the expressway is smooth and easy - the mall is also visible from the expressway. There is plenty of parking around the mall, and the variety of stores is generous. There is no public seating area anywhere inside of this mall for weary shoppers - unusual for a mall this size. Seating is only available at cafes, or restaurants attended to by roaming waiters who quickly come to take your order. The mall has a food court located on the upper level, along with a viewing deck looking toward the Mediterranean, which also accommodates seating for outdoor dining.
Within the parking lot of the mall, there were a couple of kiosks/snack bars located just outside of a large hardware store called Leroy Merlin. We chose the snack bar that had a sign that read "Tapas y Cerveceria". The food here seemed much more tempting than the adjoining kiosk, and we were right. We had some excellent tapas here, and would highly recommend it for its good quality, and as a cheap alternative to more expensive tapas dining within the mall complex. They also offer Spanish paella, and various other full course meals.

“beware of pick pockets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

I just love this shopping area but you have to be very careful with your belongings as the thiefs who go around her are very good.My mother lives in spain has been robbed 4 times which makes you very vigulent of these thiefs. Well knowing this it happened to me in la Canada I don't know how they managed it but they must have watched me pay for our coffees and watched how my bag fastened an followed me for 2 min an when a checked my purse was ok I was shocked to discover it was gone luckily though I didn't have much money but they got my credit card so be very very careful

“Watch out for pick pockets”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013 via mobile

You could be anywhere in the world the supermarket is good but nothing different in the other shop very noisy at weekend and hard to park on any bank holiday. Frequent car robberies. My friend who lives in Spain has had her purse stolen twice so watch your belongings and handbag

“Good Place to Shop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

The La Cañada Shopping Center is so very large that you can find almost everything you want. The good thing is that there is a large supermarket in the center where you can shop for food.
