Not really alot to say - it's a mall. What makes it so nice is it is at the end of the Riverwalk. We were there on a Saturday, so it was really crowded. The clerk at the Purple store where I purchased something was miffed because I didnt' have any change and had to give her 2 20's, she said I would take all of her 1's. Don't they prepare for things like that? Knowing they are in a tourist location, and on a Saturday?

Next time I will go on a less crowded day. If that's possible.

“It was ok, its a mall.”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

It is a mall, but it is like traders village. People hanging out the doors of their shops and harrasing you to come into their stores. There was a Disney store though:) I stocked up on things for my 2 yr old. The food from the asian resturant in the food court was great.

“small, but handy”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

Very small mall, but it is so handy for picking up last minute gifts or getting out of the rain for a bit

“I think this place is the 5th circle of hell.”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

If not for the need for a last minute gift, we'd have driven to another mall that had a Disney store that didn't feature several packs of wild children and their inattentive parents that were so bad, the staff looked like they were going to be in tears. I also wanted to buy a new pair shorts this past weekend, but with what seemed like every high school in Texas at the mall for UIL State Marching competition, I opted to walk away from the bedlam and screaming teenagers and opted to wash the only pair I brought instead. Security and the cops had no clue on how to handle that many people, so they stood there doing nothing until a mini-fight popped off between kids.

On your average Saturday afternoon, this place is a madhouse. The layout of the mall is confusing and barely navigable already, now factor that in with any number of school children running around with chaperons, unsupervised kids running, screaming, and knocking down everything in sight, and your typical pack of teenagers dragging their feet at a pace of 1 step a minute while taking up the width of the corridor. Add in escalators that didn't work on 2 separate (and sadly, necessary) trips, security guards and uniformed officers posted literally every 30 feet from each other, and stores size and layouts that would give a claustrophobic person a heart-attack...you'll see why I and a few others feel this way.

“hard to navigate”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

Go elsewhere for shopping. It is like every other mall in America only more difficult to navigate. I struggled to find escalators. I could see the shop I wanted to go to on a different level, but couldn't figure out how to get there.

I am sure there are better places for shopping in SAT than this mall. It is convenient if you need to pick something up you may have left at home on accident, but otherwise I would avoid it.
