We liked the clothing and gifts at this small shop in the Alhambra
shopping mall. Due to covid-19, the hours are limited so be sure to check hours. You can call to make an appointment. This store is not near Palm Beach. It is near the Divi Aruba and Costa del Mar close to the Oranjestad end of Eagle Beach. But, we also visited their sister store (different name) in Palm Beach where my daughter bought a stylish straw hat. The Palm beach store focuses on swim wear and hats.

Please excuse our late reply, we just realized a tech issue had prevented notifications of reviews and are just seeing this sweet review now. Although we are late, (even later than island time would allow :-) we really appreciate the time you took to comment on The Lazy Lizard. The Juggling Fish is our sister store you visited located beach side at Playa Linda Beach Resort. Our hours are still reduced, but we are also open by appointment every day in both stores. Thank you again for taking the time, we hope we can welcome you again one day!

We were shocked by the rude treatment. Upon arrival to Aruba I purchased my husband a UV protection shirt. It didn't work out so we came back 4 days later with the receipt to return it. They only accepted exchanges and we were fine with that. We're easy and go with rules. The sales lady on my initial trip was wonderful. This one we needed to exchange with was so unpleasant that we both were shocked by her behavior. She didn't want us to touch tshirts because it's a lot of work for her to refold (isn't that kind of a store person's job?) Then she insisted that I said I purchased the other shirt "yesterday " which I never said (why would i?) And she still insisted. I couldn't believe how rude she was. Lazy lizard has always been one of my fave shops on Aruba. She has soured me from shopping there again. When you see a dark haired petite woman with a pixie haircut, come back when someone else is working. Unless you enjoy a good scolding while you shop. We wound up spending more with the exchange...but she didn't even thank us. Nasty woman.

Thank you for your review of The Lazy Lizard. It is sobering and upsetting to the entire team that not only did you have this experience as you described, but that it outweighed all the good experiences you’ve had in the past. Up until now we were one of your favorite shops in Aruba but sadly only this experience caused a review of The Lazy Lizard and soured you on shopping with us again. What a shame! We strive to give our clients both local and visiting a wonderful experience in our stores. Our team loves their work and after being closed so much of 2020/2021 we are thrilled to have our doors open again with a wide selection of quality resortwear. Despite your “rude” experience we appreciate that you chose to visit and shop at The Lazy Lizard and sincerely regret you will not do so in the future. Thank you again for taking the time to remind us that it’s not the good we do that makes the impression but that one bad experience. We appreciate your taking the time.

Purchased a $400 wall mount, charged my credit card and never received are item over 10 weeks ago. American buyers, BEWARE!

The more than 2,000 American buyers that we have shipped to since we began our drop ship program would most likely not share your view. By working with artisans and craftsmen in various locations who have agreed to ship direct for our clients’ convenience, we have managed to successfully help decorate many of our clients’ homes, summer homes, villas and cottages. Truth be told, we are quite proud of that. Many clients share their excitement when they receive their package, a memory of our beautiful island which has been hand-made and shipped just for them. They appreciate not having to hassle with excess baggage and fortunately, it’s rare that our quoted 6-8 weeks delivery time runs longer than we expect.  In your case, you emailed us that you had not received your purchase ten weeks out and we immediately sprang into action with the artisan to investigate the delay, sending you a number of emails with every step and calling repeatedly to update you even though it was a holiday weekend here. We also refunded your shipping fees because the vendor was delayed and you were not notified. That was before we saw your review. Unwisely, we have waited to respond to this review because we understood from our conversation you were going to amend it since you had said you acted without reading your emails. We are sorry you decided otherwise. We do hope you will enjoy your beautiful wall hanging for many years to come and that it will bring great memories of our lovely island.

I went to this shop almost everyday during my week stay last week. It was in walking distance to where I stayed. The first time I went in I was looking for a cover up and saw three in the window on display. I asked the lady working if they had any other colors and she said "nope, last three". So I bought one. The next day I took my mom in with me and I walked around more and in the back corner of the store was a basket FILLED with these cover ups in a variety of colors, colors I would have preferred. Every employee there follows you around the store and stands behind you, as soon as you put something down, they sigh and fix the shirt (even though I folded them back up). I don't like being treated like a felon especially when I spent around $200 in that store that week. They have cute things and decent quality, but the service makes you not want to go back. I can't remember her name, but it started with a "P" and she was young, she was the nicest worker there- have her teach a class on customer service to the rest!

Hello. Thank you for taking the time to review your experience at our store. We're sorry to hear that you did not receive acceptable customer service. This type of feedback is very useful to us, and we will take it onboard. We're happy to hear that you think we have a nice selection of cute items, and we hope you enjoy the items you purchased. As for the cover-up, it could have been exchanged for another color in the store. Did you ask about this possibility? Thank you for visiting us so often during your stay, and perhaps we will see you in the future.

Top notch customer service! Mary and Evelyn went above and beyond to help me prepare a purchase for safe, secure travel home. The Lazy Lizard is fortunate to have such genuinely helpful, kind and knowledgeable staff.

If you find yourself shopping for high quality, unique clothing items, jewelry, and accessories, definitely check out the Lazy Lizard. They had a wide variety of super soft t-shirts and sweatshirts along with fun casual and dressy pieces you won’t find elsewhere!

Da wife and I stopped in on our way to the Spa de Sol. Very nice clothing. Da wife ended up buying a hat and a tshirt for our son. I'd post pics but I'm not sure if the owner would get grumpy about that.

Good place!
