Great resort, beautiful rooms. It's everything you need in a hotel. The restaurant and drinks at the hotel were great as well, although the restaurant was quite crowded due to the popular bingo night their host.

Can't think of any better place to stay on St Croix. Nice clean rooms. Wonderful helpful staff! Many amenities, free use of masks ,snorkels , kayaks , stand up paddle boards. Onsite restaurant and bar. Fun activities, bingo and hermit crab racing!

Tamarind Reef was not what I had expected, especially after my stay in St. Thomas. The beach is exactly what the name implies - reef/coral/sea urchinds. The views were beautiful, but you could only lookl. You could not get into the water and there was no sand beach to walk onl. The iguanas were a treat! They wander around everywhere....

We stayed on the second floor in November. I will start with the positives, the view is lovely and the staff are pleasant. The room is spacious. The nearby marina is pretty. The location is a straight shot to Christiansted. Now, the other side. We won't call it negative...the beach is full of sea urchins and biting flies. You can't...

We held a family reunion at the Tamarind Reef Resort, Spa & Marina and it was just perfect. The place is small so our group wasn't lost among lots of other tourist. The rooms were a good size and very nice. The bathrooms had been recently renovated. Everything was clean. Best of all the views were fantastic with the ocean...

I had a room 50 foot from the ocean on the second floor. Great view and relaxing sounds. The onsite restraint caters to both the locals and travelers and has a variety of fun activities in the evening. I would highly recommend as it has all the amenities for a business traveler or vacationer.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Tamarind. Quaint, Quiet, and Amazing Views put us into a much needed relaxation state of mind. The staff is very friendly and will go the extra mile to help you out (thank you!). We missed walking out onto a beach into the ocean, but the amenities gave us other options we...

This is not a resort. It is a two story hotel with no bellboys. It faces Buck Island and has one of the most perfect views on the island. I have returned after a 10 year hiatus. I spent a week here every year for 13 years and I just love this place. It has a large lap pool so...

This was our second trip to Tamarind Reef Resort in two years. Enjoyed the first stay so much we extended our second stay into 16 days. Great service, attentive staff and an awesome view. The folks at Tamarind have earned my respect and a hearty recommendation. During our visit to St. Croix I experienced a sever knee injury. That evening...

We just returned from our honeymoon and spent 5 days at this resort. We found the staff helpful, the food very good, and the views memorable! It is not a 5-star resort, but I don't think that exists anywhere in St. Croix. This is a nice place to stay. I've read a lot of very negative reviews about this resort...
