Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Located in Ayala Center in Makati, this very popular department store is very well known all around The Philippines. Very family friendly place that has a lot to offer.

Parking can be found here, but I don't suggest you drive in Manila as traffic can be mentally exhausting. If you have a driver, he will know exactly where to park at SM.

The Store is filled with everything you need for yourself, your home, your family, friends, pets. SM is growing with products it's unbelievable!

Products are either locally made items to luxury brands from all around the world. From perfumes, cologne, shampoos, conditioners, body lotions. It was a little hard for me to sample something then move on to the next fragrance counter as there is so much to see all around the mall.

What was most important is that the Foreign Exchange
Counter was found on the Men's Floor of the department store. It was operated by BDO Bank and they offered a very competitive exchange rate.

Also In the basement of the mall, you'll find SM
Supermarket. They will have all your household items, snacks, food items, anything you forgot to pack for your trip such as toiletries.

I honestly can't remember which floor it was, but there is a wing that connects you from SM to Glorietta Mall. It's the floor where one of the coffee shops were located either 2F or 3F. Happy shopping!!!

The mall is easily accessible from the Ayala MRT station. The shopping options are numerous. It happened to be my regular hangout destination as it was easily accessible and annexed to Landmark and the Greenbelt malls.

This place has department store, supermarket/grocery, native store, hardware, appliance store and brands like H&M, Uniqlo, Forever21 (yes, it's still open). There are also fast foods like McDonalds, Chowking.

This store is connected to the metro rail transit with taxi bays and next to a public transportation hub. It's also beside Glorietta. I go here mostly to buy native gifts/food when I travel to be given to my hosts or family & friends I'm about to visit.

Once a rundown mall, now a great mall especially after it’s refurbishment many years ago. It has everything you need with many boutique stores including a food court, grocer market, and on the high floors with many good brands. One of the main reasons for me to visit it is Kultura Filipino. Can’t get enough of it!

SM Makati is a few steps from Ayala Avenue railway station of MRT Line 3 (the 'yellow' elevated railway line).

At its other end, it is adjacent to Glorietta shopping centre.

SM Makati has a terrific SM department store and below it supermarket with some food choices, all reasonably priced.

Both major outlets have a good range of items. Staff are courteous and unlike some Western department stores or supermarkets, there are plenty of them.

Outside the supermarket is a 'market' with speciality items like dried mangoes aimed at tourists, and an eyecatching row of food stalls that serve mostly local snacks and cheap lunches.

The supermarket and department store accept credit cards. The small stalls typically do not, so exchange your foreign cash for Philippine pesos or visit an ATM.
