“Loved this place”
Reviewed August 10, 2006

The Fantastic Guest House is a three story hotel over an auto parts store in the Rastafarian section of town. The street is narrow and congested, but I never felt unsafe; traffic moves slowly. The entrance to the Guest House is on the side; you walk up a set of stairs to the main area which has a cute tiny swimming pool and a gorgeous shaded patio with stone floors, tables & chairs, overlooking Royale Marina. Sitting on this patio is worth the price of "admission"; it's truly lovely. The room we had was a little more than adequate; it had a private bathroom and I liked that the air conditioning unit was located on the floor so that the cold air didn't blow directly on me. The view from our room was of the street and nearby buildings but as we were up high, I didn't feel at all closed in and enjoyed watching the street scene. Their credit card system wasn't working; had to pay cash. $50 a night during this "low season". We only stayed one night due to our travel schedule, but I would have liked to have stayed longer. Located near to the shops & restaurants at the Marina -- maybe a 10-minute walk. There's a great crossainterie in the marina shops that's open early for breakfast.

  • Liked — the patio with view
  • Disliked — it was a bit of a walk to a bustop
  • Tips/Secrets — You don't need French, but it helps if you make an effort to learn a few phrases.

The guest house provides you with a great view of the port and it is just a very short walk from the center of Marigot. The service was great and you certainly can't beat their price. Don't expect a fancy street side entry like the more pricey hotels on the island. This is place is a bargain hunters delight!
