Servicentro La Rotonda (service center) Image Gallery
This one is not a commercial center as such, it’s a gas station with a few others services. This service center is called "Rotonda" (Spanish for roundabout) because its located at the large roundabout where the two main roads cross, the North-South road connecting Cayo Coco with the main island of Cuba, and the East-West road connecting Cayo Coco and Cayo Guillermo, see map below (Yellow markers are the shopping centers).
Services include : A gift shop, a Snack Bar "El Rapido", a ETECSA center (where one can buy phone and internet cards), and a bank (Banco Financiero Internacional) which is for now the only bank in the cayos of the Jardines del Rey.
They are currently (2017) building a new bank ("Bandec” branch) right next to the Rotonda gas station. Note that there’s currently only two gas stations in the Jardines del Rey, the other one is in Cayo Guillermo, next to the Boat Adventure docks, in front of Marina Marlin. The price (2017) for gasoline is 1.00 CUC per liter for "Gasolina Regular", and 1.20 CUC per liter for "Gasolina Especial".
Plaza "Punta Alegre" (name to be confirmed)
This commercial and entertainment plaza will offer similar services as the Plaza Los Flamencos. It’s currently under construction, it should probably open in late 2017. It’s located on Cayo Guillermo, in a sector called Punta Rasa (west of hotel Sol Cayo Guillermo). It will be next to the new hotels Grand Muthu Hotel Cayo Guillermo and Catalonia Cayo Guillermo.
