Nice small shop full of flavours. We focused their Punch au Rhums, thought they have really interesting other products, too. Lady on duty was really generous on tasting and eagerly told about their products. Well, not that cheap but really interesting and worth carrying 5000miles to home.

This review is about their jams and sauces as we don't drink alcohol. Their jams are amazing. The banana jam is so good! Don't miss this place!

Before I start my review, I will say, the Coconut Rum is awesome and the bottles are fun. BUT, My husband and I went to Ma Doudou's store in November. We were so excited to find the store as it is not easy to find. I could not wait to buy the "Rhum" for the Beach & to take back... More

Read about Ma Doudou on Trip Advisor and decided it was a must on our cruise trip to St Maarten. We used the directions from this site and along the way found a wonderful ice cream vendor located at the corner of the alley way. We tasted several rums and bought Coconut and the Banana Vanilla along with several bottles... More

We specifically came to this store after sampling the banana vanilla rum on Orient Beach at a restaurant and knew we needed to get some to take home. It was delicious!

I love "Banane Vanille Rhum" and the beautiful handpainted bottles of Ma Doudou. Wish I'd bought other flavors... but I now have another reason to return to St. Maarten.

Bought some flavoured Rum from Ma Doudou's shop . They will let you sample some of the flavours before you buy , so enjoy first they buy a bottle . Ma Doudou's Rum is also available at many of the Food Markets or Liquor stores .

I grow up in St. Maarten and travel back quiete often. I always make sure to brink back a couple bottles (banana vanilla / passion fruit are my favorites). Great design, I like to keep the bottle for decoration. Sweet rhum to enjoy at the beach as a digestive ! Love it !

Great place to sample some of the local rum and hot sauces. This was one of the places my husband and I went to during our food and rum tour (look it up because it's a great way to start a vacation!). The shop owner's aunt (if I remember correct) paints all the bottles by hand. Everything is made from... More
