“Very few outlets and no savings”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

Mostly said in the heading. Not a lot of outlets there and not a lot of savings in the outlets. Far more restaurants/cafes than shops. There are a few children's play areas and a Max cinema.

“Do yourself a favour and don't bother”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

Festival Park is not what you might think: an outlet centre like the old MacArthur Glen shopping villages with recognisable high street or designer names.

It's dreadful.

However, I'd give them full marks for their publicity which was so enticing that I went (literally) out of my way to visit. As a result, I spent more time there than I would have wanted almost in an effort to convince myself it wasn't as bad as it seemed and justifying the effort it had taken to get there.

The worst disappointment of many was the El Corte Ingles store which was a poor version of a charity shop. That's not fair: that's insulting charity shops which are largely very well organised and orderly. So it was like a charity shop would be if you'd left toddlers in charge to rummage through all the goods and throw them around.

Even the food court area did not make up for the general sense of being let down by this place. I left without the minor consolation of finding something worth eating.

I'm not a fan of continental markets or tourist tat but I'd have much preferred to spend my time bartering with Senegalese traders in Alcudia over an elaborate but desperately ugly handbag or garish pottery than trudging round Festival Park.

Don't do it.

“AVOID!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012 via mobile

Save your prescious time & do something worthwhile. It's absolutely rubbish here.
It might be off season now, its like a ghost town. There are a handful of shops; i am only familiar with a few of them.
On a positive note, There are lots of eateries here but im sure there are loads of places to eat wherever you're staying!!!!

“So poor”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

Deeply unimpressed. Whatever you do, do not eat there, the food is beyond dreadful. If it is wet and you are looking for something to do, stay in.

“Simply terrible!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

Prices are sky high and there are NO bargains at all. Don't come unless you want to buy specific brans at full ordinary price.
