“Pretty shopping center”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

OK, we got dropped here from our dive boat so we found an outdoor bar and had a couple of Sands beers, made in Freeport. They were good & cold. The bartenders were friendly.
The marina was very nice and the shops looked new with colorful paint.
The shopping - I dont know. We aren't really into going to exotic places to buy tourist crap made in China. But I'm sure if you're a shopaholic, you would probably love it.

“Small but Cute”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

Right outisde it is the tourism place which was REALLY helpful. The individual booths were more annoying than it was worth but some of the stores sold cute items. There were a lot of stores that sold high-priced jewelry and clothing. There were some really great restaurants and stores that stayed open later than the hotel we stayed at and since we didn't have a car, it made it very convenitent. Initially, we shopped around for about 2 hours and afterwards, we went there for a specific reason.

“Tourist Trap”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

Nothing too spectacular. Just a glorified sovenir stand. If you wanted to go on a boat then go there but we're not into that.
