Consists mostly of many jewellery stores with items that you could buy anywhere and gift shops with tees, bags and trinkets made in China. It was a hotel recommended excursion with free transportation. The Margaritaville bar was ok but the music was so loud we...More

Not much to see or do here unless you're in the market for Jamaica or Bob Marley themed/inspired souvenirs or looking for Margaritaville which is at the end of the pier. We were looking for Blue Mountain Coffee, in particular, since it was extremely expensive...More

Maybe just my bad luck but unfortunately the day I went most of there was hardly anyone around so no atmosphere. I cannot recommend it from my visit, but perhaps it is better at other times

Lots more shops open now, but be aware that they all close at 5:00PM. Some good restaurants alond with Margaritaville make this a good destination for leisure shopping.

There's music and laughter at Margaritaville in here, but we went for the excellent ice cream at Scoops. It's Devon House ice cream which, I think, is the best in Jamaica. Get a drink or a scoop and enjoy it by the beach. Lots of...More

I like this spot mostly because Margarittaville is there! When the cruise ships are in port, it's gets quite busy.
