Good for souvenirs

Super handy to the resort we stayed at. The Royalton. Lots of typical souvenirs but also a few things to pick up like liquor or run to take hone.

Trinkets and smiles

La Estrella is perfectly located near the surrounding resorts and offers many little souvenirs for travellers.

It is cheap. Kiosks change everyday so don’t wait if you find something.

You will find restaurants and cafés ($) and entertainment (bowling, spa, shows).

It might need a little spruce , but it does the job!

Nice resort getaway
Feb. 2020
This is a nice little market to visit and spend a few hours away from your resort. With plenty of shops and restaurants to keep you entertained.

Fake and Fun Village
Mar. 2020
It's a bit like a film set, and built solely for tourists, but still a reasonable way to spend an hour or two away from your resort. Ours was close enough to walk. There are souvenirs to buy at not-too-outrageous prices, but not a huge selection. Several restaurants, a gym (closed when we visited) and even a bowling alley. We had a drink where we were serenaded by a couple of guys singing and playing.

Great shopping

Great selection on wood carvings and other little Knick knack souvenirs. Could use a better selection of tshirts. We found something for everyone on our list. The classic cars as taxis were a great addition to this site

Buyer Beware
Mar. 2020
We decided to get away from the resort for a few hours one afternoon and took a ride to Plaza Estrella in a 53 Caddy. Place was just okay. The view from the top of the tower was nice however be careful on the way up as many of the railings are broken or in poor condition. Many permanent shops were closed and temporary vendors had set up tables.
Lots of these vendors were selling cigars and souvenirs. The cigars were displayed in the hot sun and not stored in a humidor which made me choose to not buy them
In one of the shops we bought a 1 Litre bottle of 3 year old Havana Club rum. I thought the price seemed high at CUC$9.80 but attributed it to inflation. To our surprise and disappointment the same bottle of rum was selling for US$6.75 at the airport Duty Free shops. Even with the new pricing policies at the airports it was clear that we are ripped off since there is no "market pricing" for legally sold rum. I imagine that the same would have happened if we bought cigars too.

Man made
Mar. 2020
This is a man made market. Stuff is overpriced as they know it’s long ways to town. It is super small and not authentic.

A Nice Break from the Resort
Feb. 2020
It's a nice market for you to buy hand craft items from locals. Everything from clothes, to cigars, bags, souvenirs to bring back home.

We didn't go into any restaurants but the menus were available to see. Everything was very affordable and the locals working were really friendly.

We did check out the bowling lane. 5 cucs per person for one game which was fine. They only had two out of six lanes working, so we did feel rushed when another family was waiting.

We did end up going twice and there were some different vendors both days.

We were staying at Sanctuary Grand Memories and it was about 15-20min walk which was a good way to see the whole resort.
Check it out - support the locals!
