We really enjoyed their ice creams. The staff was very nice, the location easy to find. The prices are correct and you won't leave with a bitter taste in your mouth, quite the contrary ;)

Alice's Ice Cream bar is a great little spot for delicious homemade ice cream and great vegan ice cream as well!

Stopped by for a cool refreshment after a few hours on the beach. Delicious ice cream hit the spot! Owner was friendly and accommodating and his daughter is the cutest! Do not miss if you are in Playa Chiquita!

My husband, son and I stopped by the other day on a whim and I had the peanut butter ice cream and my son had the chocolate. Both were delicious and definitely one of the best ice creams I've ever had. You can tell it's made with care. Hoping to go back again before we leave!

Absolutely amazing - this place gives you an idea of what ice cream should/could taste like - in fact it's ruined ice cream for ever for me, as I doubt I'll ever find anything like this as good again... and living in London, Alice's isn't exactly round the corner for me.... :-(

This ice cream was incredible and the owner was so friendly and welcoming. We tried the Coconut and the Cookies and Cream and both were so delicious. We just wish we had gone more than once!

I am going to miss this ice-cream shop so much!! It is all home made with quality ingredients. I tried Mint-oreo, cinnamon, vegan chocolate, rum coconut & almond. They were all amazing but my absolute favourites were mint-oreo, cinnamon and vegan chocolate. They use coconut milk for the vegan flavours and they are so delicious and creamy you would have...

Honestly, stopping at Alice was one of the highlights of my vacation. We rented bikes down the street to meander around town and stopped in for some Ice Cream (very hard to find around PV). John was so incredibly friendly (and his young son, also, who regaled us of his many entrepreneurial ideas) and the ice cream was so incredibly... More

The highest quality ice cream, sorbet and vegan ice cream is all homemade and organic where possible. We use only local and organic produce, free-range, organic eggs and raw, organic sugar and chocolate from a local cacao farm. Fresh whipped cream and unique flavors from our backyard and around the world are offered every day. Open every afternoon. **Note** We had a tree destroy the left side of our house and property and are having major renovations done. We will try to be open and encourage you to call before driving here so you won't risk being disappointed. We're sorry for the inconvenience and hop to be back to every day service soon.
