“Average Mall”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

If this didn't have probably the largest Carrefour I have ever seen this mall would not be very busy at all. Very tired and not particularly busy even on a Saturday, this Mall was not really worth a trip unless you want to visit a particular shop. Dull.

“Abu Dhabi's second luxury shopping centre!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

If you cruise past the Abu Dhabi Corniche up to the breakwater area going to the Marina and the Heritage Village, you would see a large mall with an adjacent tower beside it, fronting a park and that mall is the Marina Mall, which is the largest mall in Abu Dhabi.

If you are doing an Abu Dhabi Day tour from Dubai, then you will be past this mall unless you are in a private tour where you can ask your driver to make a stop here so that you could get around for a whistle stop and look around.

The Marina Mall features a 100 metre high viewing platform, an ice rink, a bowling alley, a Cineplex, musical fountains and hundreds of big name brands and stores, many restaurants and coffee shops and the Marina Mall Tower, where you can see panoramic views of Abu Dhabi City and it's neary islands.

“Nice Mall”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

A nice typical gulf style mall. Good collections of shops but it is clear that it is expensive as some shops are not included like Jeweleries other than few high brand once. Also, it was shocked not to find more shops for toys other than Early Learning Center!!! There is a nice food arcade where all the types of cuisines and food style are available. Also you could just go outside the mall to watch nice view of the gulf as the boats club is across the road. If you have no kids you can also enjoy a nice walk on the bridge leading to Cornish or even hire a bicycle to ride. The mall is recommended to visit even if you are not planning to shop as you can enjoy having a meal or just a walk

Nice mall with a good selection of shops. If you a looking for the rotating restaurant the entry is within the mall.

“Most visited mall in Abu Dhabi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013

This is one of the best mall in Abu dhabi frequented by most due to its location. The drive towards this mall along the creek side is superb. There is nothing special about this mall (be its interiors, brands, food outlets etc). But u can spend an evening outside this mall with great views of all skycrapers of Abu Dhabi along the creek and the Emirates palace on the other side.
