Across the street from this small 30min stop on our tour, sits this MOST amazing store: the cameo carvers can be seen at work while jewellery to lamps ranging from $10 (USD) all the way to the thousands can be seen or purchased and shipped. While there I found a carved set of swan earrings for my sister from Boston.... More

This was a 25 minute visit from a cruise ship shore excursion, and more time wasn't needed unless a person will be purchasing a lot. I had expected to see delicate carvings of small traditional cameos, but instead found it to be carving in shells to make unique art. Several workers were grinding on shells while we were there, but... More

We went during a Carnival excursion called "Top 10 Best of Roatan." This was a neat place, and the carved, shell jewelry was beautiful. You can even watch an artist work. There's not an option below for family (all adults).

A must stop on way to the beach. If we hadn't had a great taxi driver who knew it was there, we would have never known it was there. The pieces are beautiful and a small piece about $20 but worth it for the work that's put into it. I'm not sure the needed a headset speaker to tell us... More

Our experience with the Cameo Factory was incredible! We went via a shore excursions tour from our cruise on Dec. 16th, 2016. My wife and I appreciate FINE works of art, and the creations of 4th generation master carver Franco Tammaro are breathtaking. His skills are unbelievable. We were fortunate enough to get a chance to meet the master and... More

I love cameo anyway so was excited to visit. This is a very interesting place. You can see cameos being made. I bought earrings and am proud to show them off. The quality is first rate.

We have been to the Stone Castle Cameo Factory several times. We always like to stop in and see what new cameo designs they have. We absolutely love this place. Don't miss an opportunity to see these "one-of-a-kind" Italian carved cameos. They are carved from conk shells and they are absolutely beautiful. We always make a point to stop here... More

These are a true Cameos that are carved in a conk shell. The only other place in the world where cameos are carved is in Italy. These magnificent works of art are being carved at this location and you can watch them work. They have a VIP room which you can tour if you ask. The pricing on these works... More

My wife had been wanting to stop at Stone Castle ever since I booked the cruise back in January - it was everything she had hoped. The craftsmanship was excellent and the prices on the cameos were excellent. My wife was able to complete all of her Christmas shopping AND get a beautiful cameo necklace for herself. I even enjoyed... More

It's mind blowing art, best to take cash along the away especially to the cameo store. Credit card may not work if not confirmed by your bank before leaving.. Prices are $20 +, without silver and with Sterling silver $40+. Amazing art. It's very difficult knowing that on the island it's a high season and a low one.. Which carvers... More
