My girlfriend and me ended up here in search for an escape of the midday heat. I am not really a mall-fanatic, but compared to the ones in Dubai, this `souk` was a serious downgrade. Atmosphere in general is rather cool, and there was practically...More

It was a average mall for me. Didn't see anything special. Good for the guest staying at the hotel. Wide rage of restaurants are available. Parking is very confusing. We visited 3 time and all 3 times one side of entrance from parking was close.
