Sometimes a niche concept just works. Carousel, Simpson Bay, in the Dutch part of St Maarten is just such a place. A gelateria with bar attached is a Mecca for ice-cream lovers. Walk oh so slowly past the photographs of ice cream, themselves full of...More

We visited this place before the end of our half day tour in St Martin. It is specialized in ice cream. The shape of the building is unique. It displays pictures of celebrities having ice cream.

So many yummy flavours to choose from. The place is a delight to enjoy the Gelato and ride the carousel or watch the kids squeal with delight. There is fresh cotton candy, made to order and popcorn. Also a play room for the little kids...More

If you're craving great ice cream (gelato) you must try this place. You can ask for samples....the hard part is deciding which flavor(s) you want to buy. Lots of memorabilia to check out while there.

The ice cream was delicious but the cherry on top was the carousel ride. Eating ice cream and riding on carousel brought back childhood remembers.

Stop in for some great gelato and ride the beautiful carousel. While you are at it check out all the photos of famous and not so famous people eating ice cream around the world.

The gelato are excellent. Lots of choice. We took pistachio and nutella, miam! 6$ for a medium cup.. Behind the gelateria there is a carousel and a beautiful view on the lagoon.

No longer living on the island.....but in contact with many there. Can be safely assumed the building was badly damaged. But will probably be up and running again by the time busy season rolls around in mid-late November... More
