There is no potable water provided, you must buy it and it is expensive unless you have a car to bring in several gallons. The owner has not done maintenance on the rooms. The shower does not drain. The doors do not close properly and we were bitten by mosquitoes. The owner's adult children work there and are very friendly,...

Want a nice quiet place to stay for a few days? Don't want to have to walk or hire a taxi to go out to eat? Want to lounge by the pool and just swim up to the bar? This is the place! We've eaten here several times in the past but had never stayed. However they scrambled to accommodate...

We stayed at Tamarind for 2 nights before moving to west end. You can not ask for nicer staff or owners. We met a few locals and had a great time. The food is very good in the restaurant also. The rooms are clean and the AC works great. The pool was great for hanging out in after a day...

Great for Sunday brunch, every kind of eggs you can think of washed down with a free mimosa..... Although we had champagne & cranberry which was delicious. The Fish & Chips were delicious, moist delicate fish surrounded by a crunchy, spiced breaded shell.....I could have eaten that again. There is a pool there and live music. It's an all-day affair....

The rooms are VERY basic. No Phone, No TV, no Clock. They advertise WIFI but it is NOT available in the rooms. Cleanliness of the rooms was disappointing. Cobwebs in the shower, multiple light bulbs burnt out. Mildew in the window A/C unit. We could not figure out how to lock our room door (which was a sliding glass door)...

We stayed at The Tamarind Club two nights, one night at the beginning of a sailing charter and one night at the end. The accommodations are not the Ritz - more on the rustic side but if you're looking for a 'real' island experience this place is great. It has a homey, Cheers-like environment where you feel like you are...

This is the best hotel/restaurant/bar in the entire world and it is not even close!! I cannot say enough nice things about everything from the food to the location to the rooms and pool, but it is truly the staff who make this place so absolutely special. Kat and the gang are some of the best people I have come...

I stayed here for two nights waiting for my friend with the sailboat to arrive at Nanny Cay. The location is perfect -- only a ten-minute ride from the airport. After a long trip from St;. Louis and a lost suitcase, I was greeted by the owners with a drink. I was impressed by the hospitality of all the staff,...

Our group of 6 was switched to The Tamarind Club from another nearby hotel due to a double booking. We were so glad for the switch. The Tamarind Club is a family run "hotel" that has a really comfortable feeling throughout the property. The rooms are aging, but they're clean and spacious. It's got a great pool and an even...
