This place is charming and a must visit if you love homemade ice cream and gelato. It's delicious! They have a beautiful carousel that in indoors and on the water where you can take a ride. Outside is a walkway with black and white photos...More

Delicious gelato, lots of flavors. My husband and I enjoyed the gelato after a long hot humid day on the beach. The perfect treat!

The gelato in about 30 fl score was delicious, however, the ambiance was amazing. The carousel was available for pictures, even if we didn't ride it. Highly recommended!

very expensive- in Montreal their price for a small size is the one for a large. not worth it... go to the casino at the Simpson Bay Resort and you'll get their ice cream for free

Located right in Simpson Bay area, Carousel is a great place to get Gelato. Atmosphere is great. The people working there are nice but it can be a bit chaotic. There's not much organization for the waiting in line for your turn to be served.

make sure to have some space left for ice cream here - plenty to chose from, I've always been satisfied here with my choice : you can ask to try a flavor first just to make sure...

Carousel has the best gelato and most selection of flavors on the island. I've been going here for years. They have a real carousel, kids area, Wi-Fi, and fun pictures. The gelato is not cheap but nothing is on st maarten.

I believe so. My partner is GF and was able to eat many of the flavor. They also have sorbet.
