Stopped by here because of all the good reviews. Very cute shop but was very disappointed with the help. The gal behind the counter was far from friendly & we actually felt like we were a major inconvenience to her. Hey I guess everyone can have a bad day. Needless to say I didn't purchase any rum there but I... More

It's about a 15 min walk from the cruise terminals and it's a must see and do. We stopped on this trip and will continue to do so each trip. The ladies that work there make you feel part of the island and not another tourist and the Frozen Guavaberry drink is to die for it's so good. After the... More

If you're into sweet liqueurs, you've got to give Guavaberry rum a shot. Sweet, earthy, floral and, above all, delicious. We tried the whole run of products and had to bring a bottle of the wild lime back to the room for our 2 week stay. Poured over ice or mixed with a little 7-Up or Sprite, it is a... More

I had a guava berry drink while on a tour and wanted some of the liquor and rum to take home. The staff explained the various products, provided samples and packed the bottles well for the flight home.

It is always fun to stop in a have a taste test of the the Guavaberry liquors - our favorite is the mango. We make mango coladas back at home and remember the great vacations and fun we've had in St. Martin. Only wish they could ship to the U.S. Easy to purchase if you're on a cruise ship -... More

This place is a gem!!!!! The shop is appealing to all you senses. The Caribbean music that is playing , the lovely scent when you walk in and the beautiful painted bottles not to mention the free sample drinks. The girls behind the counter, especially Deeta ( not sure of the spelling) are great. I can highly recommend a visit... More

The atmosphere was less than welcoming. I was the only one in the store, yet I was not approached by the two sale reps. until I asked for something. They didn't even ask if I wanted to taste any of the guavaberry products. The hot sauces' were available for self sampling, so I helped myself. Word of advise, be more... More

Years ago I stopped through St Martin on a cruise and remember enjoying the Guavaberry colada and buying a small bottle. While staying here for a trip I was determined to visit Phillipsburg and see if reality was as good as my memory ... in fact it was even better!! The shop staff is friendly and helpful in guiding you... More
