Cigar Emporium (aka La Casa del Habano franchise in Aruba) is a very nice shop with a decent selection. The humidor is very well stocked and does have a fantastic selection of AUTHENTIC sticks from Cuba. That's where my nice part of the review ends. I must have had dumb tourist written on my face because when I asked for... More

It is only appropriate to say thank you for your note and If I may add to the list. We, at Cigar Emporium, never portrait any of our walk-in guest as you mentioned (dumb tourist) Our main goal is to act as a guide for all people, whether we just met you or have a longstanding relationship with for years....

A very nice selection and prices were more than fair. The woman waiting on us was very nice and knew her cigars. Made some Cuban coffee for me and my wife. Cigars made it home in great shape

I absolutely love this Cuban cigar shop. The selection is excellent and the staff are highly knowledgeable. I enjoy relaxing in their lounge with a beautiful cigar and a cold beer. I make a point to visit this shop every time I'm in Aruba (which is often). Authentic Cuban cigars and great company..... always!

Arrived about 5 minutes after they closed and blonde female (sorry forgotten her name) inside opened back up and assist us on our purchases. She was very knowledgeable about the different Cubans. After about 30 minutes we purchased a good selection. I highly... More

Small shop with an outstanding Cuban cigar selection. Jay has got a great personality and knowledge of Cuban cigars. If you're an aficionado, she's got some surprises under the counter (thanks for the ER Caribbean!) rum samples, coffee and Cuban rum for sale. Shop with confidence that you are getting a legit Cuban product as this is the habanos SA... More

They have a large selection of Cuban cigars in a walk-in large humidor. Jay was very friendly and knowledgeable. She recommended some very nice selections and indeed they were top-notch cigars. This will have been to a "must stop" every time I come to Aruba.

My husband and I were shown where Cigar Emporium was by a very nice Security Guard in the mall. We got there at 5:40 pm (closes at 6:00) to a locked door and two children inside with a clerk counting money in the register ignoring us at the door. The 1 star is for existing and (presumably) selling cigars but... More

Thank you for responding so we can explain our behavior. Yes, we might have had the door closed due to a new safety procedure before 6. As of ignoring, I did make eye contact and notify you that we were closed. You are most welcome from 9.30 am until 5.30 pm. We do not close during those hours and are... More
