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...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.
