  • Very nice, lots of options where to eat and where to shop, also you have like 3 cinemas the structure of the building is very nice, I heard it was a jail before so they did a very good job remodeling it.
  • Muy Lindo, espacios y con mucha variedad
  • From the outside, as an old prison, the idea is very interesting! Inside, the same old shops you will find everywhere. Good place to eat and kill time. I was in Montevideo twice this year and first time at the Radisson, from where I needed a taxi to Punta Carretas. Last month I stayed at the Sheraton, on top of Punta Carretas and that was a great experience. From the Sheraton I could just go catch a movie, eat, go shopping and chill out. I could enjoy the place so much more.
  • The one shopping mall to visit while in town. Big and comfortable. Awesome parking lot with plenty of room.
  • shoppings ate for definition nonplaces, the same every where no matter wich country you are. On this bases this particulare one is little, you can find everything quickly, easy to walk throgh, good attention, clean, and with some history in the walls, it used to be a prisson until 90's decade and the jails were located in the actual stores, former president José Mujica with other insurrect called Tupamaros escaped by a tunnel in late 70's so now you can shopp while making a journey through the past
