Stayed in St Maarten for a week and went to Carousel three times with the family. There were 39 flavors of gelato, and every flavor was very realistic and delicious. You can have small samples before ordering, and you should certainly try a few flavors. We had apple pie, guava, orange, coconut, lemon, strawberry, and coffee, among others. Don't eat... More

They have many flavors of gelato as well as other desserts and a gift shop. You can ride the carousel behind the parlour. The strawberry cheesecake and the mint chocolate chip hit the spot.

Great atmosphere and of course Gelato/sorbet/ice cream, etc. of your choice for the entire family. Let the little ones/young and old take a ride on the carousel in the rear of the parlor and reminisce their youth. Beautiful and a must DO while on island. ENJOY!

Gelato/ Ice cream- can't go wrong here!!! There is a real carousel in the back and a gift shop with adorable Carousels to buy! After you leave Pineapple Pete, take a walk to CAROUSEL (down the block). We went here about 3 times during our trip!

The ice cream is great, the atmosphere is festive, the carousel is a must for the kids. Adults can also enjoy the treats and souvenirs.

Old-fashioned, beautifully appointed little ice cream parlor with fabulous desserts and wonderful assortment of gelatos. We had cantaloupe and rum raisin, but excellent. You will want to drop by everyday.

My brother in law and sister live on the island. They were great tourguides for my husband and me during our honeymoon. We went for icecream to Carousel, almost every night. Such sweet people, delicious flavours and a beautiful atmosphere!

Yes - I'm from here (SXM) 🐢 Not really a 'sweet-tooth' but been enjoying this place for years!! Located in Lagoon area of Cole Bay/Simpson. Just a hop/skip/jump from PineApple Pete's and opposite Cappuccino's. Just in the 'bend in the road' where you begin to figure out- that the bridge is UP; That's why traffic has not even moved in...

Visited here on a stop during a culinary tour! This place was amazing! Super clean and beautiful Italian tile throughout. There is an actual carousel! The gelato was delicious. Worth making a stop to visit!
