Most of them are too pushy. Sunny at Radiant Gems is the best.He lets you take your time and choose as you like. It is a very relaxed environment. Keep up the good work!

Good place to look for and bargain for a good watch. There are plenty of stores that carry the same brands so do your homework.

Excellent jewelry shopping experience. Ask for Bob! Will trade your old jewelry and upgrade to new pieces for a reasonable price. Very personable staff and there is also an excellent liquor and cigarette store available. Ask for Kaycee. While you are there you will be offered beverages of your choice. Check it out, you won't be disappointed.

I wanted to get a couple of rings and a baby bracelet for a newborn
The young woman who served me- Yuga - was lovely, very helpful and knowledgable about the stock. I found exactly what I wanted at a good price. I would recommend going earlier than later if you are on a cruise ship as the shop looked busy when I passed later in the afternoon. Also you can get a better deal with USD then certainn credit cards. A couple of people in the shop were obviously returning customers and one told me that they felt this was the best jewelry shop on the Island.
Also cold drinks are offered and this provides an unhurried atmosphere.

The whole street is lined with jewellery stories, one after another. So be careful not to buy at the first store. A lot of them have the same items and bargain for the lowest price. Cigar is the cheapest (other than Cuba). I wish there is a few more nice restaurant other than a few Chinese cuisine places (low end) and McDonalds.
