I made my annual visit to Penelope's & she did have some lovely pieces of jewelry, however her warm & friendly attitude was gone. I told her I had left a good review for her after one of my last trips & received no response! My friend has a house there & said she has changed. I also think her... More

Love Penelope's shop and she's a doll. Wonderful jewellery and island gifts at reasonable prices and Penelope tells you straight...no salesman con-job from her, no pressure to buy. I'll be back!

This is a nice unique boutique , owner was very nice and personable , her collections were wide and unique . Please ignore the one bad review , look at her profile she has almost half of her reviews as average , poor or terrible , maybe it was her and not the owner . I do not use calendars... More

I was really looking forward to going to this little shop in West Bay. It came highly recommended as a great place to find high-quality, unique, locally made jewelry and other gifts. I was also hoping to meet and talk to the owner who is highly involved in animal rescue efforts on the island – a huge passion of mine.... More

We spend the last week on Roatan, it was amazing, the people, the ocean, the food, etc.... was perfect for our vacations. We did a stop on Penelope's, we get in and it was so hard to get out, the store is fully of cool things, is the perfect place to buy some souvenirs and presents....

My wife and daughters loved this little shop in West Bay. They have a wide variety of local art and jewelry at good prices. The owner has tons of local knowledge. Well worth a look.

We had a great experience at Penelope's in West Bay on Roatan last week. They have a wide variety of jewelry and collectables--handmade on the island. The shop's owner was very friendly. We will definitely return on our next visit!

Penelope's Island Emporium is located in the small shopping mall in West Bay. It is by the real estate agent and the coffee and wine bar. I attend several jewelry shows a year in Houston, and her handmade works of art are some of the most unique designs I've ever seen. Do yourself a favor and forget about buying your... More

I really liked her shop because there was actual jewelry made by the women of the island. There was purses made out of garbage made by a young man to feed his family. All the things they made helped them take care of their families so it made us buy more and more.

I have been to Roatan twice and had the pleasure of shopping at Penelope's Island Emporium. She has such a wonderful variety of unique jewelry and decor. Penelope is such a warm and friendly person - you feel like you've known her all your life! I have purchased several lovely jewelry items and they are definitely "one of a kind"!... More
