Reviewed March 25, 2013

This mall is the largest in Panay Island so this is the best mall experience that you could have when visiting Iloilo and the rest of Panay. Just like all the generic SM malls in the country expect extensive choices for dining and shopping with SM Department Store and SM Supermarket as anchor tenants of the mall. Many travelers make SM City their last stop in Iloilo as the mall has a van terminal for those who are going to Iloilo International Airport.

“Good place to shop and people watch”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

SM Malls are everywhere in the Philippines and this is the big one in Iloilo. It's quite a meeting point/hub full of the usual shops and restaurants. There was a recent 3-day sale there (15th-17th of March 2013) and it seemed most of the town was out there. It's fun to walk around, shop, watch the people and have a bite to eat during the heat of the day. There are good bargains to be had. Most people will probably take a taxi there from town but it's a good walk for the energetic and if you do go on foot be sure to take the side trip along the riverfront walk - time it so you're at the river for twilight/sunset and then continue on to SM for some evening shopping.

“It's all right...”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

It's good for shopping local stuff. U could find Chinese or western fast food or meal everywhere for whole day. The beach is fantastic with clean blue water and shells ....cheap but nice hotels around 1200 peso per night is offered in the town. U can find bars easily and thai food is available but not recommended coz the taste is ok but not the original thai food flavor....I'm a big fan of food so I might be strict with this point.....many old churches are good to visit too..u can try food in chowking chain restaurant ,jolibee and teco's bachoy so many more....

“Shopping stop over and pit stop to airport...”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

Good stop over for a bit of shopping and dining in Iloilo city. Very accessible via public transportation. Is the hub for the Airport shuttle - a convenient way to get to Iloilo Airport. Look for the Airport shuttle in the outside parking area.
