Expensive and poor quality. You would be better off shopping inside Havensite. When we were there, a salesperson was berating a customer for not buying and "wasting his time."

Thank-you, again, Jessica! Our g'daughter received (on her birthday) the turtle snow globe intact, PLUS the little key chain you added as compensation for the first snow globe breaking. I so appreciate your taking the time to mail her the pkg., and the thoughfulness of the little addition. See you next year!

My Montana 8 year old g'daughter collects "snow globes" and at Purple Papaya she found one containing a turtle . She'd just been snorkeling with some turtles so was thrilled to have this memento of her vacation. It broke on her flight home. She wept. Her g'ma called Purple Papaya (from Boston) and explained the "crisis." Jessica, bless her heart, said she'd immediately pack up another carefully and send it via priority mail. That's service! Thank-you, Jessica! Penny Randolph

The store is ok, customer service is so so. The items are expensive..so unless you expect to spend a fortune..go somewhere else.

I alway find nice, reasonable pricing clothes in Purple Papaya. Lovely dresses. I would recommend anyone to shop there.

what a tourist trap....everything you could possibly want the last dat before heading to the airport. No quality stuff here...just last minute souveniers. There are a couple of decent shirts and sweatshits, but no bargains. A "must stop" shop...but take a look around and head on to the next one !

I was in St. Croix June 2006 and was not at all impressed by the Purple Papaya, in fact we found everything we needed, closer and cheaper to where we were staying in Fredricksted. No Purple Papaya for me!

We were in St Croix for a week and on our last day, we went in and my wife saw a dolphin statute. I asked the manager Jamie if she could ship it to the states for us. She said she could for five dollars. We paid for the statue and gave her the five dollars. After returning home a few days later, she called stating she sent the package but needed twenty more dollars to cover expenses. When we finally received the statue, it was smashed into bits and the cost to mail this was $11.75. I called Jamie and told her about the statue. The reply was "it is the Post Office's fault." Now we are out of almost one hundred dollars. Do not buy anything from the Purple Papaya and have them ship it to you. Be warned....first they will take more money from you to send it and not pack it well and it will be smashed when you get it. My wife was so disappointed, she cried.

We were on St.Croix for a week. We went to the Papaya 4 times ! The staff is wonderful! They made the whole experience of Caribbean shopping such fun. Go to the Purple Papaya, you will love it.
