I love this place, the gelato was delicious . Huge place and extremely clean. After you finish eating u can take a ride on the beautiful carousel in the back. Visited the carousel five times while in st martaan. Well worth the calories

Family walked here from Pizza Italy for dessert. Gelato selection was awesome and tasted great. Pictures around outside of building were awesome and actual carousel in back looked cool for kids. Worth the visit.

I grabbed 4 slices of cake to go. They all tasted of freezer Burn and where stale. If only the cakes where as good as the Gelato.

Hey its ice cream, what more is there to say? My wife and I stop here multiple times per week when on the rock. There ice cream is made fresh daily. A great stop after a dive trip!

Great gelato. Large servings. Nice clean building. Not sure how they maintain such great facilities and keep their prices the same as little booths in Phillipsburg.

We visited the area just two weeks ago and stopped in to the Carousel. The ladies behind the counter were not very friendly. My daughter asked to try a couple of flavors. She was not happy with the taste of either of them. She asked to try a couple more and were told that 2 tastes are all she gets.... More

We thought this place would be a fun establishment. Loved the decor; simple white and blue with a beautiful chandelier hanging over the ice cream. The gelato was average but had great flavor combinations. We felt jipped when it came to value though. We spent way too much for two small golf balls sized scoops of gelato each; $12. The... More

We found this place online and decided it would be worth checking out one night. We went after dinner, close to their closing time, and thought the place was pretty amazing.
