This is where the movie theater is located, but don't expect the lastest movie, or in fact, more than one movie at a time. It is also where Margaritaville is which is probably the biggest attraction there. There are several smaller stores, most of them are pricey, tourist shops. There is a really good ice cream shop located on the... More

Dressed Up to the hillz, and ready to get down at the clubs, what fun we had! The free drinks made the night, non stop drinks and good music and great vibes. At the end of the night a great tour guide awaiting to take us back to the hotel. YourJamaicaTours.com - jermaine

There were hardly any shops open when we went and the promise of live music on the centre stage brought nothing.

Although a majority of the shops are closed the beach is open on weekends and ship days. The beach is clean and has an extremely reasonable entry fee. Lifeguard on premises and Margaritaville is right there for lunch and drinks. River water enters into sea water so there is the best of both worlds. Sad that most of the shops... More

Very disappointed. Looked like a ghost town. Only a few shops open on a Saturday. Little scary. Several shops permanently closed. Ones that were open weren't too pushy so that was nice.

This shopping center in Ocho Rios has an excellent variety of shops. Blue Mt. coffee, rum, and souvenirs are featured in most stores. All is duty free. There are also several jewelry stores.
