Stopped for something sweet. Couldn't have stumbled upon a better place. So much to choose from. My husband and I both got Crepes and a scoop of ice cream. Delicious is the only word to describe it!

Many delicious flavors of gelato -- it was fun to try 3 before settling on mango. While I enjoyed the gelato, my family members enjoyed the old-fashioned carousel over the water!! Can't wait to go back in the daytime to see the cool carousel in the light and have another excuse to sample the gelato!

Lots of choices of gelato and in a cup or homemade waffle cone. A bit pricey at $4 for a single scoup and $6 for 2. Very cool carousel in the back of restaurant that the owner brought all the way from italy. So beautiful and worth seeing especially if you have kids.

Great tasting ice cream...sorbet...treats and a little history to go with your visit. And... A ride on the carousel 🎠 Really! It's beautiful! Large variety of choices from friendly staff! How can you pass up ice cream in this heat?

Kids love to go here. Take them for a special treat: lots of icecream to choose and the carousel in the back makes it really fun for young kids. Not the cheapest place, but definitely one that put effort into creating an icecream-eating-experience.

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!
