Had a great evening here having a icecream with friends. Had a walk around the place looking at the pictures, enjoying Carousel. Cant wait to go back.

We visited here 3 times and tried different flavors. Tamarind was so good. They also had guavaberry gelato that almost tasted like a guavaberry colada. The person behind the counter wasn't the most friendly, not even much of smile, but so what! They had all kinds of flavors that were not your usual ones found at other places. Interestingly, they...

What a wonderful find! We walked a long way and found Carousel! Ice cream laid out in a circle with amazing flavors! But there is more. We almost missed the 60 year old beautiful carousel out back that overlooks the water. As we were leaving we saw the wonderful marble spiral staircase! Beautiful! From the street you would have no...

Very good icecream and outstanding service, big variety of fresh made icecream, you can watch them making it and amazing good italian coffee's. For children a carousel in the back. Awesome architecture of the building looks like a big dome in rome. Price very reasonable, because the friuts on the island are expensive and the icecream is fresh and delicious,... More

Great selection of fresh Gelato and other desserts. Full bar as well and of course an amazing full-sized carousel. An icon in St. Maarten and if you only go for dessert once on St. Maarten, please make it this one - it is an experience. We will go for dinner in Simpsons Bay then to Carousel for dessert. Dress up,... More

This is the place to get gelato after a nice dinner in Simpson Bay. Made fresh daily you can taste the quality. You have lots of choices. Not your typical ice cream parlor.

Very disappointing. Cappucino ice cream had no taste of coffee at all, not rich and creamy. The rum cake had no flavor of rum to it. What a waste of $10.00. Just saying.

This is a beautiful and high energy place, due to all the sugar no doubt. The gelato is awesome with the old standbys and many different flavors as well. Something for everyone! There are sundaes and cakes and other goodies as well. The place is very clean and bright and has a wonderful little carousel in the rear of the... More

A Must See stop when visiting St Maarten! Its unique 16-sided architecture design, its historic carousel, its beautiful gardens and its rare photo gallery of people all over the world enjoying ice cream would each be a reason enough to visit but it is the rainbow selection of creamy smooth gelatos to choose from that makes this THE place to...
