Just want to write a quick review to say thank you to all the staff at the Tamarind Hotel, our ten days here were fantastic and unforgettable! If we return to Barbados any time soon, I can't see us staying anywhere else... Fantastic holiday, emulated by this great hotel.

Absolutely outstanding. This hotel is made up of a selection of villas, each consisting of 2 two bedroom apartments. Standard of service is excellent, I couldn't find a single fault in the food! Amazing! The location is equally impressive, sat on its own private beach with sun loungers, although you've got to be up bright and early to get one...

We were staying at Crystal Cove as usual and chose to transfer lunch at the Tamarind. Lunch was excellent; very generous portions of superb food, served promptly with style. If we return to Barbados we shall eat here again if we can.

My husband and I came here for a babymoon for some rest and relaxation prior to having our first child, and we definitely recommend the resort. We initially wanted to stay at "the house" in Barbados but it was fully booked, and this was a sister hotel option we were offered. It is almost next door to the house, with...

This may have been the best hotel stay we have ever had! My Husband and I traveled to Barbados for my Birthday, and we were not disappointed. This hotel makes your stay easy, relaxing and special. First, the 3 pools and beach loungers are really great. They supply clean towels that are placed on the chairs each morning. It was...

We have stayed at the Tamarind a number of times now, and each time it has been excellent. All the staff, and I mean all the staff, are so friendly, helpful and cannot do enough for you. We started off at the Coloney Club, as the Tamarind was originally fully booked; but after a visit on the water taxi, we...

We stayed 3 nights at the Tamarind in October. The location of the resort is very convenient - Holetown had a duty free shop for shopping and places to eat. The resort grounds were well groomed, the third floor Ocean view room was spacious, well decorated and spotlessly clean. There was not an elevator. A tasty full breakast buffet was...
