While out shopping in Philipsburg do not miss a stop in The Belgian Chocolate Box. The dark chocolate truffles are the best. You will savor every bite. This is a must stop every time I am in St. Maarten. It is right beside the "antique yellow car" on Old Street.

We first discovered this gem a number of years ago in their downtown location. We are so glad that they opened a branch store in the Cruise Ship Plaza. The dark chocolate treats keep us coming back year after year. A box of these chocolates is the only thing our neighbour will accept for house siting while we travel. Two... More

It was a hot day and we wanted to make this our last stop before going back to the ship so that the chocolate wouldn't melt. Ended up not buying too much because I couldn't decide what I wanted ! Prices are a little high. Perhaps a "tiny sample" of the two or three I was interested in purchasing would... More

We buy good chocolate where ever in the world we can find it and this shop measures up. It is not cheap by any means, but well worth the cost. We brought some of it home, and now it is gone. I have offered to fly back to get more.

I was in the shop 1/26/27 to unfortunately find out our friend of many years (owner Beatrix) had retired. Beatrix made the BEST chocolate and was always happy to see and temp us with her newest flavor. Beatrix was a very proud woman and many times I'd see her running through town to get chocolates to the cruise ship passengers... More

This is a have-to stop when ever we are in Phillipsburg. They have some of the best chocolate you will find. Not the American super-sweet stuff, but real quality gourmet chocolates. People who expect "American" values everywhere they go might want to leave the kiddies outside as there are a couple of rather explicit chocolate molds on the higher shelf.... More

You won't find any chocolate that is any finer in this hemisphere. Beatrix has a special talent and super secret recipes that make this shop very special!

We stopped in to investigate, because - well, chocolate. The store has good reviews and smelled amazing, but we didn't purchase any due to the pricing. It is higher end pricing and since we were only looking for a quick bite of something sweet, we decided not to purchase. Of note, on the shelves near the register there are genital-shaped... More

If you love fine chocolate you must visit the Belgian Chocolate Box. I visit the location every time I am on the island. I will be back in Feb 2017 and I will be going back for more chocolates.

If you like good chocolates and tasty treats you must stop in! I only wish they shipped to the states.
