We just returned from another great vacation in St. Maarten. The best thing about going there is our time staying at The Horny Toad. It's so relaxing & comfortable there - Betty & Phil are always so happy to see their guests & they make the stay there so enjoyable. The staff is the very best & have been with... More

I fell in love with this hotel! I prefer staying in locally-owned/managed hotels when I travel...providing more personalized service. A great way to get to know the locals and the culture. Who knows your destination better than a local? It is a small, friendly, cozy yet secure hotel located off the main drag and right on Simpson Bay.Perfect location for... More

The Horny Toad Guesthouse is a small white guesthouse right on the beach. The location is a fantastic location to see ship traffic and the lights of the town. It is in walking distance of restaurants, etc. even though most people rent a car. The owners are fantastic. The staff is equally as fantastic. The rooms are immaculate with daily... More

We had the best time at the Horny Toad Guesthouse. We had room #6 which is right on the beach. You literally walk out of your room and your feet hit the sand in one step. There was a separate living room and a bedroom. The bathroom was kind of weird because it was not a room at all, but... More

We are still here at The Horny Toad Guesthouse and we would not think of staying anywhere else on St. Martin. Each of the eight units is different but all units include a kitchen and sitting area. Each has a king bed. This is not a resort, just a perfect place for a single or couples who do not need... More

My wife Judy and I had the extreme pleasure of staying at the Horny Toad Guesthouse in October and even got to experience an unexpected and uninvited guest...Hurricane Gonzalo!

I have TripAdvisor users to thank for this recommendation. THTGH was an excellent price for the two nights we stayed during the off-season, the view was amazing and Cherry was incredibly hospitable. We stayed on the second floor overlooking the water. I have to admit we were a little caught off guard by the layout of the property. With the... More

If Grandma just so happens to live on a crazy beautiful beach! I have family that lives in a very small town in Nebraska. This guesthouse could have easily been located in that little backwater community. It is outdated,there is no TV, the owner is annoyed if not apprised of your late arrival. (Even if your late arrival is completely... More

If you are looking for something off the beaten track. The Horney Toad Guesthouse is great. A small intimate place that has efficiency apartments on the property. Step out your door onto the beach with beautiful views of Simpson Bay. The property has 2 floors, free parking, security, an out side cooking area for barbeques (gas grills), very clean, safe....
