Recently, my husband and I had our dream wedding on St. Croix. We stayed at Tamarind Reef Resort and have nothing but great things to say about their accommodations, amenities, and wonderful staff. Cathy is one of the assistant managers, and she helped us plan our wedding from beginning to end. She gave guidance on getting our marriage license and helped us find the perfect location to get married on the beach. With the ocean, Green Cay, and Buck Island as a backdrop for our nuptials, I must say it was quite beautiful. Cathy arranged the officiant, florist, photographer, hair stylist, and she was even one of our witnesses. It was a magical week and we couldn't have done it without Cathy's help. As another perk, she upgraded us to the oceanfront honeymoon suite....which was awesome! We loved having a room where we could hear the ocean, feel the tropical breeze, and see the beautiful turquoise waters of the Caribbean. We loved it! Thank you, Tamarind Reef, for your wonderful hospitality. We'll be back again soon!

Room Tip: All rooms have a great view!

Nothing pretentious here. Large, comfortable rooms on the ocean. This is not a "resort" hotel with room service, beach service, etc. Nice place on the ocean with a great open air restaurant/bar, and good beach. We felt more in touch with the island and culture in this place verses a larger, more luxurious hotel.

We were recently at the Tamarind for a couple of days and enjoyed it greatly. The high point was the large room with plenty of space to relax and we had a great view of the ocean. The on site bar provided a good breakfast (for a reasonable cost).

Stayed here for 3 nights early in May and we loved it! The room was huge- would be great for those with kids. The view from our room was gorgeous (see photo) and I believe it is the same view for all of the rooms.

Room Details: Great size, lots of storage areas, locked safe in the closet, small but nice bathroom. Amazing view with chairs outside to enjoy. Beautiful fresh flowers were on the table to greet us. Only complaint: King size bed needs a new/better mattress. Definitely been used for a while and therefore quite sunken in.

Resort Facilities: Lots to enjoy. Fitness center was quite nice, with decent machines and weights for those who like to lift heavy. Pool is right on the beach-such a beautiful view. Water sports including Paddleboards, Kayaking, and Snorkel Gear were free, easy to access and even more fun to use.

The Restaurant: Was pretty tasty. Simple menu, but tasty. The wings are delicious. Order them dry, b/c they marinate them for 48 hours and are so tasty. Breakfast was great with awesome coffee! Service was great. Everyone was so friendly- including staff and guests.

Overall: I definitely recommend this hotel/resort. It's relaxing, inviting and allows you the freedom to roam about the island while still having a safe and great place to come home to while visiting.

The highlight of the hotel was the view. The view of Buck Island and Green Cay was beautiful. I really enjoyed the views and the breeze on the balcony. I would consider the rest of the hotel to be average to good. The room was large in size; however the furnishings were a bit outdated.

The beach was on the small side, though while we were there we never saw more than a few other people on it so there was no issues with crowding. The beach was not suitable for swimming as there was lots of rock and coral; however it has plenty of lounge chairs suitable for sunning and covered areas great for lounging.

My biggest disappointment with my stay was the lack of general customer service. The gentleman that checked me in barely spoke a word to me. When staff would pass us on the grounds they didn’t speak to us. The only hotel staff that exuded good customer service were the grounds crew. They greeted us every time we walked by. They were very friendly!
