    We just got back from Tamarind after a 7 day stay.  Firstly, the grounds are amazing and the entire staff were very friendly.   I gave this a 4 because the room was nice , but the shower doors were a little funky and we would end up with a huge puddle on the floor.   The breakfast bar was great.  Lots to choose from.   Was not too crazy about the lunch menu,  not a lot of choices, plus had fish on two occasions and it was extremely salt .  Also lots off birds show up at breafast,  not a fan. Nice beach. Clean rooms.  The duvet was a nice touch and the bed was very comfortable .

  • A nice stay

    Our stay was Sept 19-23 2012. We stayed in room 337. Upon pulling up to the property I was not impressed. From the outside it looks a little raggedy. The inside looks much better than the outside! Check-in was easy, they offer a welcome Rum punch and a cold towel to cool you down(mine smelled weird so I didnt use it). The room was wonderful. It looks as if the room was renovated but you can tell overall it is an older building. No elevator. The room was a nice size, nice size bed, large balcony overlooking the pool area. Great space to sit out. The bathroom was a decent size, I didnt really understand the tub/shower door (when you take a shower water goes everywhere.) The included water sports were a great addition! Water skiing was fun! The included breakfast was also great. Some of the food changed everyday but for the most part they always had the omelet station, fruit, pancakes, bacon/sausage and breads/pastries. Wonderful way to start the day off! I just wish breakfast started earlier and ended later. The business center and fitness facility were great and we did put those to use. The managers cocktail hour on Wednesday was fun, great finger foods and delicious drinks! Everyone on staff at this hotel is super friendly and always willing to help.(almost to the point of irritation). Overall very nice stay, very friendly staff, good food...and good fun!

    Tamarind is located on the fashionable West Coast of Barbados. It has a lovely beach with good facilities. The property is in excellent condition with nicely decorated rooms and up-to-date bathrooms. The restaurants serve a variety of well-prepared foods. There are three pools, but these are a bit small. The staff is very attentive and friendly. Overall, a superior choice among many good hotels in Barbados.

  • AMAZING! Must stay here!!

    The newly renovated hotel is just perfect. The rooms are spacious and very clean and comfortable. The bar and restaurant areas are also great, and the food was spectacular. For anyone traveling with teens, this is the only place to stay. The teen club was so cool, I wanted to stay in there and hang out. The level of service and attention was out of this world. They really make everyone who checks in feel like a VIP with the service, friendliness and extra specials in the room. I recommend this to anyone- single travelers, family, couples. The beach was beautiful and it is right next door to Daphne's restaurant and The House (which is also amazing). If you stay here, you will have an amazing vacation.

  • Stay was nothing special - just ok.

    My wife and I stayed here May 2009. We upgraded to an ocean front deluxe room but probably should have saved the money. Rooms are not any bigger than the standard, the view is better, just make sure that you get a second or third floor room. The bushes on the bottom floor block everything. We had problems with the bathroom electrical outlet, the cold water knob in the shower/tub was very hard to turn and the hot water did not regulate correctly. The shower Water pressure was very low. Also, there was a very bad smell in one of the closets (something rotted). The electrical outlet was fixed on our third night but the water regulation was not fixed, even after talking to the manager. The reception staff in the lobby are very unfriendly and always on the offensive. Service in the restraunts is very slow expect to be there 2 to 3 hours. One night people were sitting for hours and were never served because of a staffing issue. People complained and recieved free drinks. We went somewhere else to eat. The beach area in front of hotel is small but bigger than other hotels on the west coast. Beach area is not very clean, cigarette butts everywhere. Beach water is beautiful and there is some corral there for snorkeling and seeing some fish. Beach vendors are a constant bother from morning until evening. The only good thing is that you can walk a short distance down the beach and swim with the sea turtles in front of St. James. The west coast is very hot and there is no breeze. We would not stay here again. Recommend staying towards the southern end of the island at the Crane or Hilton.
