My wife and I stayed here for 10 days in a pool view room. It was actually both a pool view and sea view from the back of the hotel so great sunsets and morning views (Rm 241). We only stayed B&B which I think is best as there are so many local restaurants, although similar price to hotel. We...

This was my third visit to Tamarind Cove and will return again next year. Everything about this property adds up to a first class vacation in every way. I cannot say enough about the gracious, helpful staff who make the hotel such a pleasure from the moment you arrive with cool towels and a welcome rum punch. The front desk...

We had an ocean view room and although we enjoyed the view, the sunsets, and drifting off to sleep to the sound of the crashing waves on the beach, we don't think there's a 'bad' room in the hotel so maybe wouldn't pay extra next time. Our room was immaculately clean, the bed comfortable, toiletries nice and the towels fluffy...

Spend six nights at the Tamarind. Splurged and booked an oceanfront room. Well worth the money. Get one on the top floor. Slept to the sound of the ocean and didn't even have the door to the balcony open. It was that close! Fell in love with the rain shower head in the shower. Want one at home now. The...

It was our third stay at the hotel. Whilst it was quite enjoyable this time again and the service was friendly and often efficient, the staff were severely stretched and struggled to handle 100% occupancy rates in the hotel during the February half term. Hence we ended up queueing up for quite a long for service which was quite frustrating....

A well kept and presented hotel with excellent friendly staff. Positives, good location right on the beach, crystal clear and warm sea, beautiful gardens, great service, lovely room (large and good view), sheets changed daily and room always spotless when we returned. Reception, bars and restaurants all gave faultless service and were friendly in a way that only Barbados can...

Just got back from an excellent 10 day break at the Tamarind. The hotel and room exceeded our expectations. We paid more for the Ocean view and it was well worth it. The star of breakfast is Ether who does the egg cooking. She is brilliantly entertaining and a great cook. The staff cannot t do enough for you Arden,...

I'm at this hotel now. It's 6.30am and I'm watching people from our balcony putting towels on their sunbeds to reserve them. Seriously, 6.30am. Despite the hotel policy, this is accepted. Some of these beds have stuff on them all day and guests on them for minutes.

Our annual stay at Tamarind just gets better. The staff are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble, hard pillows - sorted, suspect aircon - sorted, restaurant bookings - done. The Ocean front rooms really are worth paying for the views are superb - better than other very very expensive nameless hotels on the West Coast, and my friend...
