This shopping mall is a run down version of a flea market and only has a few places open. The whole area has the best days in the past. The only advantage is that it is right next door to Suncape Hotel, it is a...More

We visited Playa Dorada Mall which was a 7 min. walk from our hotel on the beach. They had a lot of interesting items in the many stores. Staff were helpful and always smiling. A little bit of everything.

Small mall with some interesting shops. Look around for better prices as some shops have the same items for more than their neighbours. Best location is Cheapy Charlies upstairs in the mall. Friendly service and willing to bargain!

All the stores basically sell the same items, it you purchase anything, buy upstairs. The guys will bargain with you.

Reasonable place to shop, for tourist stuff including larimar (although the jewellry shop downstairs is probably one of the best shops there). There are cash points here and a bank. Good for that at least if you are in a hotel in Playa Dorada.

It is worth visiting the mall on a cloudy day. Pretty much all of the stores carry the same souvenirs, and you can bargain more with the stores on the 2nd level. The prices will be higher than what is offered on the beach, but...More

The Playa Dorada Mall is located within the gated Playa Dorada area, which itself contains around a half dozen all-inclusive resorts, some condos, and a golf course. This should already tell you roughly what you can expect: this is a big tourist trap. To be...More

No idea. I wasn't on the look out for that kind of items. They do sell cigars and cigarettes though so possibly?
