“Best rhum I've ever had”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

I have been bringing this rum home with me for years, I have been to the shop in Cul de Sac, which is a really neat place full of delicious items. The vanilla extract is as unbelievable as the vanilla rum.

I have found that the most convenient way to purchase this product is to buy it in the SXM airport on our way home, and carry it with us.

I wish there was a way to buy it in the states.

“Amazing genuine souvenir products from Saint-Martin!”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Ma Doudou is a great shop to bring back amazing gifts and souvenirs from Saint-Martin, such as infused rums, spices, jams and sweets. Most products are locally produced and go in lovely painted bottles that can be kept and displayed as souvenirs. The shop is managed by a nice guy whose family has launched the business, and he's therefore keen on making visitors discover the products and taste them. I highly recommend you to stop by the shop and taste something different, it's worth it!

“A must do in St Maarten”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

It took two cruises ( last cruise, storm in the Caribbean changed our course and we missed St Maarten) to find that special rum we love so much. Not this time! we were able to find Jamals shop and he had the coveted Madoudou Rum. We recommend it highly. The Rum is to die for and very reasonable. Jamal is the best. Hint: Buy a lot!!

“Great experience”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

It was totally fun visiting banana vanille and getting to try all the different favors of rum. Plus, the prices are really great. We bought a bunch of mini rum bottles, which make great gifts. We can't wait to share our rum with everyone back home. Make sure you visit this place while in philipsburg. Not just a place to shop; it's super fun!
