“D&B and Movie Theatre”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2008

This was the closest movie theatre to our hotel that was playing Tropic Thunder. We took a cab from our hotel located on Ala Moana and it was about a 10 min. cab ride. We had an hour until the 9pm movie and decided to go to D&B located next to the theatre to kill some time. The theatre was decent, not super new, had a slight smell of feet. Didn't get a chance to check out the other stores / restaurants at the Ward center though. Next time.

“a little treasure hunting experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2008

This is a really pleasant shopping area. It's kind of a bit walk since the shops are scattered around in the center. Without any shops in particular in mind, I just wander around and see if I could find anything interesting. The boutique and other craft shops are quite unique there. You can find something that you can't find in traditional mall such as Ala Moana, so enjoy the surprises. You can easier spend half day there without feeling too bored because all shops are pretty different from each other. And another plus, this place is so close to Ala Moana, you can start here in the morning, then, walk to Ala Moana for your afternoon shopping.

“Better than Ala Moana and Pearlridge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2007

Ward Centre is not as well known or as large as Ala Moana or Pearlridge, but their shops and resturaunts are a lot better!

They have a lot of specialty shops that feature unique items. In Ala Moana and Pearlridge you have the same shops that you can find at any large mall in the country.

I loved the Racing Store, Hawaiian Quilt Store, Chef's Store, and T-shirt stores. It's not crowded like the other shopping centers, and it's just 5 minutes from Waikiki. The atmosphere is great, no rushing around, and across the street is the Farmers Market Store which is huge and has all kinds of local foods that you can pack up and take to your hotel if you have a kitchenette.

Unfortunately we didn't have time to eat at Ward Centre, but they had a variety of resturaunts with an marina ocean view.

“Nice but tiring.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2007

I do enjoy taking a walk through this 'mall' although there are a few drawbacks. There are about 6 or so buildings that are encorporated into the entire Ward centers, and they are fairly spread out. Walking from one to the other is a bit of a distance, especially when you might only be interested in one or two stores in each. One or two of the buildings are fairly expensive in terms of shops, and I found that there doesnt seem to be that many people around here - which can be interpreted as good or bad. I dont buy too much here ever although its lovely to walk through for browsing.

“VICTORIA WARD CENTER”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2006

I really love this shopping center. It has lots of really nice shops, and my favorite would be Island Soaps and Candleworks. I like this shopping center because it's in a location where you can go to the Ala Moana Shopping Center after. (It's really close).
