“Too Touristy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

Looks and feels like so many of the commercialized "taste of the local culture" venues around the world, that are big on trinkets and prices.

We were staying across the road, so we stopped in, but I wouldn't make it a destination.

“Not really worth the visit”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

This was a typical craft type village that offered lots of trinkets, with few true native art works. If you are in the area, drop in and take a look, but definitely don't make a special trip there.

“Average fair, very nice peaceful setting”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

Very nice setting. Had a quick bite to eat at Raffles was very good. Over all a little disappoiting there was not more local vendors. Alot of stuff that was available everywhere else on the island. Roko's shop had all authentic hand carved wood items. She is a long time local shop owner always smiling and helpful with a deal to be made. She gave us a gift even before we committed buying anything. Good sales tactic but felt like a genuine gesture on her part. Will update once I receive my items she is shipping.
