Was nice to get off the resort for a couple hours. The open top, double decker bus gave a nice view of the area, and some nice breeze. Good place for souvenirs of all kinds: wooden items, licence plates, clothes, paintings, leather goods, baseball bats, etc...

A great place to do your shopping! Enjoy ice cream, go bowling, visit the disco, and of course check out the cigar store! Enjoy Cuban cuisines or simple enjoy the view and pretty colours of the beautiful market!

I was a little disappointed by the size of this market. Only took about an hour to go through. The vendors at least didn't harass you to buy anything which was nice.

We enjoyed pizza at the Italian restaurant. Lots of shops if interested in souvenir's. You can get there for two pesos each by the sightseeing bus or share with another couple and get a vintage taxi for 10 pesos for all.

A nice way to break up the day. The tower was fun to climb and see the view. A children's playground, food, drinks and trinkets to bring home to the family. I thought the one booth with the artwork was really beautiful.

One of the few things to do on near the resort. All of the same stores selling the same touristy stuff. However, the panoramic bus ride there was great as was the 55 Chevrolet taxi back to the resort. There is also a tower where you can walk up and get a good view of all the resorts. Definitely worth... More

Little village like market place ... between memories and royalton. If you wanna stroll around or looking for souvenirs... it's a good place. There are also some restaurants, spa, bowling, disco... not sure how many clients they get...

The market was lovely. Plenty of vendors with lovely items for a reasonable price ( better than the resort store and the airport. Restaurants and bars as well.

Yes, they do have a great open air souvenier market everyday. They also have some shops open (gym, bowling, honey drink shop). However, some of the shops like the Piano Bar or the Jazz Club were not open most days if at all. We even asked shop owners when these places were open and no one knew when

We wanted to experience authentic Cuban food from off the resort (Grand Memories Paraiso). We found it in a small market/Village adjacent to the resort. This village has much to offer - Bowling, library, gym, jazz restaurant, Italian restaurant, burgers and beer restaurant and a Cuban restaurant. It also has a bank and a street market with vendors selling hats,... More
