It's Skype's own store, so one would think they'd have a vested interest in selling product that works with their service. A little googling could probably get you some reviews.
My wife uses Skype to dial her parent's land line in Peru every day (nearly) from the U.S. That works very well, but, it doesn't give them the freedom to call us. That costs money, but it's super cheap - under $20/ month. If this island country has just gotten internet, Skype probably doesn't offer land line calling there yet, anyhow.
