This is a very average mall whose attraction is that it is the shopping area closest to Marco Polo and Citylights. The JY Supermarket is mediocre at best. McD, 7-11, small mediocre restaurants, Watson's, mediocre Ken massage, and BPO/call center offices. Convenient location to Nivel Heights in Lahug. Chaotic traffic swirls around JY and the intersection/confluence of Gororordo and Salinas.

Grocery store which carries everything. There's a pharmacy, bakery, and small food stalls with interesting dishes. There is a potato corner near LBC which we... More

Frequent this place for my grocery needs and simple shopping conveniences. Very comfortable ambiance and quality service of the small shops inside. They have an ever growing array of shops and services. It is located in Salinas Drive close to where my cousins live. Will definitely be back!

This is the second time I had bought a dozen of rotten eggs. Don't buy raw goods from the supermarket!if it can't be helped, make sure to check packaged date before purchasing. Two or three employees follow you around making you feel uncomfortable. The moment you step in to the store, they will not see you as a customer but... More

It's just a small mall, we call it. What you can find there which is prominent is the Watson store, McDonald and Supermarket with call center at the upper floors. Nothing to shop there compared to Robinsons, Ayala or SM.

There are favorable reviews for this place, and i am sure its made up by their own ppl. The owner of this place is a Contractor, and to be a contractor, one should be intelligent, right? But his rules and his ppl in customer service are idiots. Just tonight, i bought some groceries and went to the customer service counter... More

Very average local mall. I go there for Bandi Nail Art business - it is the best place I have found that do gel nails in Cebu. As for the other stores, they are ordinary with some stall type places. The book store is nice. The grocery store is not geared toward expats, but in a pinch you can find... More

I liked the variety of small shops they have. They do not have great restaurants inside the mall because there are amazing restaurants around it like Pino's and Golden Cowrie to mention a few. They have a a superb Hair Salon, class B eat-all-you-can place, a Korean restaurant and few other stalls that sells you little souvenirs. I've been to... More

Good shopping mall for the local population. And for tourist too. I did notice the mall shores staff is over kill. Example how many people does it take to post in the mens jeans section, maybe two, no more than three. Well in all the malls in all the sections or departments the staff is from five to eight people.... More
