  • Loved all the art and souvenir pieces and bought several for family members! I will make sure to visit every time I vacation on Puerto Rico! 
  • We stop by here every year when we visit family. Read the other reviews. The "dark skinned lady" can be rude, discourteous, and loud. It's part of the experience now. You can find some but not many of...  read more »
  • We come to SJU most every year--I never miss this place. And you shouldn't either!! They offer so many amazing handcrafts and art pieces--all handcrafted by the Haitian people. I buy something every t...  read more »
  • Stay away from this place as about 90% of the stuff they sell comes from other countries like china, peru, guatemala nothing genuinely made "puerto rican artisans". An example is the small surfboards that you give away as souvenirs i picked one up and the price tag which was $25.00 was covering a partiallt removed "made in china" sticker. I made a comment about it to my girlfriend and immediately the older lady with short white hair at the counter got defensive and began hurling insults at me, another store employee also began doing the same. I walked out and another employee followed me again hurling insults. Half a block away there was another humble looking shop selling the same souvenir's and the supposedly "artisan made crafts" at nearly half price or cheaper. The surfboard that was supposedly artisan made was available at this shop for $15 and they did not attempt to hide the "made in china" label and were very upfront about it. They made a great recomendation that if you want true artisan made souvenir's either walk the "paseo de la princesa" just before the "el morro" park or visit the town of "san sebastian" in the center of the island on fridays there you will find awesome souvenir's made by local artisan's. Looking through the web i've found many complaints about "the haitian gallery" if i would have known about how rude and combative the staff would be i would not have gone in the first place. Stay away from this place overpriced, fraudulant and low class management and equally if not even lower class employees. Who in their right mind would follow someone half a block hurling insults at a person for stating a simple and obvious truth....
  • Such amazing, intricate and beautiful art for purchase and many souvenir pieces as well. Well worth a stop.
  • This place is amazing. They take so much care to organize the store in a clean attractive manner and yet they have really good prices on things. I saw a souvenir guitar there for about 8 dollars and saw the exact same one in a smaller shop for 12!!! Their art gallery is also fantastic and refused to let me leave. I can't wait to visit PR again so I can return to the art gallery.
  • Good service, awaiting the delivery of my painting.
  • Best location to get wooden artwork in all of Old San Juan!
