My husband and I came to St. Maarten on our honeymoon and we throughly enjoyed our stay at the Horny Toad. It is a quaint villa with a beautiful view and wonderfully friendly staff! The staff is very helpful and friendly. Our room was cleaned very well every day. We would most definitely come back!! If you are looking for... More

Stated there for a week end of may. Close enough to walk to a bunch of places. Everything was clean and neat. Housekeeping was wonderful. Even handwashed all my dishes. Nice waking up and stepping out to the beach. No phone or TV. Darn, one might actually have to do something like hit the beach, go to a restaurant or... More

Stayed at the Toad for 11 days in May. The units are a little quirky, but always clean and well kept. We love it there. Just steps to the beach. Quiet property and very secure. Betty is a wonderful host. The maids, Cherry, Jackie and Joan will do everything they can to make your stay wonderful. Nightly cocktail gathering. Very... More

Had a great 10 day vacation@The Toad. Great friends, a nightly cocktail gathering where we all talked about our day & ate great munchies. The maids (sherry) more than take care of any needs for the customer. If u want a more than relaxing vacation this is the place, doesnt have tv, etc. But who misses it. Modest daily cost

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
