Fantastic Guest House
Ranked #2 of 7 Marigot B&B and Inns
Reviewed March 14, 2014

This hotel is located within walking distance of the ferry to Anguilla, the french fort, and the open air produce and spice market. While not the most updated property, we found it to be a great value compared to other St. Marteen hotels. This is listed on trip advisor as a bed and breakfast; I would consider moving it to the hotel category as no breakfast is included on available. Rooms were clean and access was convenient.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the harbor are quieter.

The guest house is in a very scary area, parking is in front of a hardware store with few spots, no
tour desk, old dirty kitchens and linens. The pool is clean and a view of the canal with small limited
seating. It was a questionable neighborhood and we felt unsafe. Hazel the receptionist was sweet and understanding.

This hotel is located in Marigot, the French side of the island; near the marina and the restaurants of the town. My first impression was that the hotel was located in a ‘not that good area’. At the end of the day, I realized that the location wasn’t that bad at all.

Marigot it’s a great place, lots of restaurants and beautiful architecture because the French influence.

The bedroom was spacious, with a double bed, fridge, LCD and Cable TV, hot water, a window, air conditioner, wardrobe with mirror, a table and a chair… For me was OK. The room was in the third floor and I never hear a noise that disturb or annoy me in any kind.

In a certain moment the shower stop working and they change us the room without hesitation. All the staff was very friendly. They of course clean the room and change the towels every day.
Marigot has a lot to offer, nearby the hotel there are several ‘mini markets’, where you can buy drinks, snacks and other quick stuff. You can find as well some places close by to have breakfast, lunch or dinner; just a little walk (10 min max) from the marina or downtown Marigot.

From the hotel you can walk to: Fort St. Louis, Museum of Marigot, Marina La Royale, West Indies Mall, La Gare Maritime (voyages to St. Barth, saba, etc.), Downtown, car rentals, lolos, ATM, office of tourism, churches, etc. Also you can easily take a bus to Philipsburg, Grand Case or even I saw buses going to Maho. By bus you surely can get to the main beaches in the island.

Next time I come to this island, I’ll look for the Fantastic Guest House again. I definitely recommend it if you are traveling with a budget.

Pros
- Location
- Cost
- Swimming pool
- Stunning view to the marina

Cons
- No food or breakfast (not even paying for it)
- No beach near

This was indeed the worse place that I ever had to stay in. Three of us stayed at the Fantasic for three days en-route to Anguilla. The only good thing about this place is that the owner and staff were very friendly. The place also has a beautiful view of the Marina. That's all. The room was not maintained well. The place was roach infested. The mosquitoes were vicious because the window screen was broken and the windows could not close tightly. The toilet was always clogged. Can you imagine sleeping next to a clogged toilet? The towels were unbelievable disgusting. I think that they were supposed to be white and looked almost grey, that you would not even want to use it to wipe your feet. One night while sleeping a piece of ice from the AC fell on my head. Now, that AC barely worked. The next night, water was dripping from the AC onto the headboard of the bed. You could not even use the phone to call for an emergency to the receptionist unless you deposited $50. When exiting the room, there was water from the rain in the corridor which posed a hazard and my child slipped and fell.

The last night, was the worse. there were young people staying the night who were very disturbing. At 6 o'clock the next morning they were up runnning up and down the stairs, singing, laughing and playing loud music. What else should I have expected for $80 a night?

There were rooms on the third floor which I hope would be better. The family stayed on the second floor and there was enough protection from mosquiotes.

Room Tip: Ask to see all the available rooms before paying.

Small hotel/motel/guesthouse 3 minutes walk from the marina in Marigot. The room was fine; large, with a kitchenette, aircon, a small tv and a great view of the marina.There is a small pool with room enough for a morning dip,and a terrace area overlooking the marina where you can sit and relax. Free wifi throughout

Staff are friendly.

Dont expect a 3 star hotel, but if you are looking for simple accomodation on an island which can be expensive then you will be fine.

This was the cheapest we could find in St. Martin, $80 p.n. (no breakfast, internet extra) in March 2012. I think its biggest drawback is that the rooms have not been maintained at all. Otherwise, it is relatively clean and you can expect to sleep well. It has a very nice view of the harbor (some rooms) and is within walking distance of the marina and the very charming centre of Marigot. Still, probably expensive.
