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.

A fairly short review here. A beautifully set gift shop on the edge of Stanley’s harbour. The shop itself was full of souvenirs and seems to be open regularly.

The staff were polite and accommodating throughout. Although there was a wide variation on offer, the gifts were very expensive but because of the lack of competition, you do get sucked in to making a few purchases.

I have no dramas with the quality of the stock, but we did take a stroll towards the distillery and found another gift shop later in the day. It was also expensive but the souvenirs were more appealing - handcrafted from locals and certainly more unique.

Overall, I’d probably revisit again to purchase any last minute gifts. I’d more than likely pop in after going to the other premises though.

Was there on Sunday. I asked for a purple penguin as displayed in one of the rotating glass cabinets. The girl went to get one from the back room and brought it through in plenty of packing, which I thought was considerate and good for popping in my suitcase. When I came to take it out of my case I was furious to find a bright pink penguin. That's the last colour I would want. If she couldn't find a purple one she should either have said so, or offered me the display one - after all, why display something you don't have in stock? Am not a happy customer and if ever I go back to Stanley, that's one shop I won't go to. Nearby Harbour (superb gifts) and Pod (great prices for basics) gift shops are much better.

Fine wee shop for souvenirs to take back home, there are a few souvenir shops in Stanley and although there are some common items it is worth visiting them all as some items are only available in a specific shop.

This was certainly the largest gift shop in Stanley and the Falklands during my visit. It was so spacious that it was quite hard for 2 to 3 shop attendants to take care of it during its peak hours with cruiser passengers. I did not buy anything during my last visit since the paintings were the most attractive gifts for me but they were a little expensive too. Anyway, I do like the small pieces featuring penguins better than the butterfly ones and certain paintings were not mass-production items. There were quite a few T shirts with prints and ladies' jewellery items. Fragile decoration and plush toy items (eg king penguins) were also available. While the shop is large, the spectrum of gifts available could be enlarged to minimise the space for display of clothing and painting items in favour of more choices for guests.

This shop had several very artistic pieces. It has more high end products than other shops in town where the inventory was cheap and touristy.
