My husband and I traveled to St. Maarten for the first time for a Christmas vacation. While the travel getting there was terrible - American Airlines at Miami airport was such a chaotic nightmare we missed our flight despite arriving to the airport in plenty of time for an international flight. But that's for another review, save to say we... More

Just returned from a wonderful time at The Horny Toad Guesthouse. Betty and Phil make you feel so welcome. They even provided us and the other guests with a corned beef and cabbage dinner for St. Patrick's Day. The beach there is fabulous. Just a few a few steps to the ocean. The room was clean and comfortable. The views... More

Betty and Phil provided a nice stay in Sint Maarten for us the room was clean and comfortable. We also had a great Saint Patrick's day meal with very pleasant company. The staff did a great job of maintaining the room as well as the grounds. Would recommend this to my friends.

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! This place has to be the "best bang for your buck" on the Island. Cherry, the on site manager was very kind to us during our stay and was always there... More
