Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was our seventh trip to the stone Castle Cameo Factory in Roatan. Every visit we are more amazed. We went specifically to buy a piece that I saw 10 years ago and thankfully it was still there. It was a signature piece that I fell in love with and it is exquisite. The masters work is beyond anything we have seen elsewhere. We went on a See and Sea tour offered by Carnival Cruise lines and it gave us 30 minutes to shop which we definitely needed. We went over on time a little bit and the tour guide was gracious enough to wait because she knew we came to buy. We have been so many times we skipped the presentation in the beginning explaining how the cameos are made and how they harvest the shells, which is very interesting, but, we needed more time to shop. If you take a tour, make sure it offers enough time to allow you to look for that special piece that you would like to buy. One of the other tours only gives 10 minutes and that is definitely not enough time. Anyone who has an appreciation for fine jewelry would Love this Institution. It is wonderful to be able to purchase the pieces at the prices they offer. If they sold them in stores the prices would be unaffordable. We have not had the opportunity to meet Mr Tamarro yet, but, hopefully in the future. These cameos are far more beautiful than the ones made of Ivory because they can be shaded in a way to make them more dimensional. The staff at the shop are very friendly and helpful. If you purchase with cash they will work with you on discounts. They are very fair with their pricing. We purchased a bracelet, earrings, a necklace and the signature piece and we felt the pricing was very fair and reasonable. This is definitely a place that one should experience at least once in their life, but, once you've been, you will want to go back. We are always interested to see what is knew and different from the last visit.

If you have never been, this is a must-stop for exquisite hand-carved shells and jewelry (the Italian way!).

I highly recommend the Stone Castle Cameo Factory. What an amazing experience to see the master crafter at work and to learn about the creation of the cameo from a shell.
I had a hard time finding the Factory’s hours as I was a visitor on the island not with a cruise ship. It is open only when cruise ships are in port and close by 2 pm.

We took a taxi from the port to the Cameo Factory. We were the only one’s there & Im so glad. We took our time looking around the shop deciding on the perfect ones the sales ladies were helpful but not pushy. They had lots of pcs for under $50 us.

My bestie took us to the Stone Castle Cameo Factory, she went on and on about the store. I was really impressed. We got there right at closing, they had already put most of the cameos away, they pulled about 12 trays out and I watched the young lady making a dolphin cameo. Quite impressed, I love dolphins and turtles. The best of both worlds, they explained the process of making these beauties. I will definitely say, if you are looking for something unique, this is the place. I am so glad we stopped, I think it was my best shopping experience yet, I cannot wait till we go back. You can see the ship from the shop, it is a hike from the ship, totally worth it. Bring cash, more for the bang of the buck. Love love this place.

You will really enjoy the talk at the beginning, seated outside in the shade, where they explain the type of shell used in making the cameos and see large carved shells. This is one of the few places where they still teach the art of making cameos, and we were able to watch one person who was carving.

Browsing through the large collection of cameos is wonderful and varies from traditional cameos to cameo earrings, bracelets, and the large carvings.

This is a good place to buy yourself or a loved one a beautiful treasure.

Visited the Cameo Factory in Roatan and was totally happy with the tour of the facility. The artist is now teaching the locals the art of Cameo making like he had learned in Italy. Wotrh the trip and money spent.

This is the last stop on tour before heading back to cruise ship. (Ship is in view from this shop.) The best was saved for last. Absolutely superb artistic work is shown on the various pieces for purchase. You can watch the craft person at work too.
