“"The Promised Land"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

It was exciting to have access to so many high-end stores that we don't have, here in Nashville! Worth spending several hours here! We visited twice to get back to Neiman's, Sak's Fifth Avenue, David Yurman, Diane Von Furstenberg, and so many more. Be sure to get your parking ticket validated in a store, to avoid the $4 an hour parking fee!

“Florida's best designer destination”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

All the designers are here in what is a superb atmosphere and nothing like a mall. In between maxing out the cards you can enjoy a drink al fresco.

“Great place to buy jewelry”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

I have never been to a mall with so many high end jewelry stores. No Jared or Kay here. Tropical feel as you go from store to store buying only the best. Guys its not too bad to walk around in but you really have to enjoy the finery to shop here.

“One of the finest shopping areas in South Florida”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Every major designer is represented. A little annoying that you have to pay for parking, even with a purchase. There isn't a lot that's cheap here, so make sure you know what you're getting into if you're making the trip. If you're ready and can afford it, it is an amazing place to shop. Be sure to ask at the store if they are running any sales, very often they will tell you about a sale that you wouldn't know about if you didn't ask, or give you "pre-sale" pricing.

“No Madison Avenue, but wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

You can spend money here. Hermes, McQueen, Kiton, Neimans. This is our favorite mall, and we live in Minnesota, home of the Mall of America. Happy we do not live nearby. We could not afford it.
