Looks like a mall but is full of market stalls that sell mostly electronics and cell phones. There is a supermarket in there for cheap food, household goods, and some clothing. A few cafes outside look reasonable.

It's not a "MALL" like you and I are probably accustomed to, it's just a few stores catered to the local and a few international cafe/restaurant along a small lane. I look at it as more a quick gateway if you're bored of hotel food, as we do with Shangri-la's food.

If you take the area as the mall then it works ok, there's a department store which is aimed at the local community and it's surrounded by a market with clothes and bric a brac. But outside you have a range of restaurants where you can get most food options including Dim Sum, Thai, European, Asian. I personally stop off... More

Yes, not a mall but a department store. But still, if you need something like food, to buy, you can come here. Eating may not be good in the store but there are restaurant outside nearby. If you have JPY change it in Cebu not in Lapu Lapu, rates are incredibly bad!

We visited this place because Zubuchon was in the neighbourhood, and didn't want to cross the bridge to Cebu city. This 'mall' reminds me of the small 'shopping centers' in Hong Kong with the little booths. Think it's more for local people and less for tourists. The only interesting shop in this mall, would be the Save More supermarket. Might... More

This is NOT a mall, it's a dept store (with little international foods), and lots of small booths mostly selling cell phones/sim cards and dvd's. Useful if you want to get some munchies, otherwise...forget about it

Check out this stall right beside Meximama (which is also a must try) for authentic but affordable Singaporean food! The chef is a Singaporean local who is very friendly. We loved everything we ordered. Will be back!

This is basically just a supermarket with some small stores and restaurants around. So ok if you need to get some items from the supermarket,... Otherwise do not have it too high on your to do list.

We visited the Marina Mall, went to the Save Mor grocery store to buy some stuff, then across the street to Golden Cowrie restaurant. The food was very tasty and the ambiance was perfect for a local midrange restaurant right at a shopping district. We ordered the Lapu Lapu Tinola which is a fish soup, Chicken en Anjillo, which is... More
