Grande Theft of the highest degree. • Let the photos speak for themselves • Filthy • Unsafe for children & adults alike • 1 * for the staff who have to work under these appalling conditions... British Airways & Elegant Resorts should take complete responsibility for allowing this Hotel to be associated with them. Obviously neither Company has visited prior...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 14 February 2017 via mobile

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...

Arrived off the BA flight and check in was quick and efficient. I was offered a rum or fruit punch. I did have to wait as the room wasn't ready. The room 133 was clean and tidy and well maintained. Very similar to most Caribbean hotel rooms. The bathroom had no bath but a large walk in shower. The wash...

Even considering all the glowing TripAdvisor reviews, Tamarind by Elegant Hotels exceeded our expectations. After a rather tiring travel day, the welcome we received by the Tamarind staff set the stage for the entire week. Cold white towels offered on a silver tray. A beautiful view of the sea from the open lobby. A delicious rum drink in our hands...

As expressed by many of the reviewers on TripAdvisor (which I used , of course), The Tamarind could not have been any better. Everything about our stay was perfect - from the super staff, to the beautiful room, to the ideal beach, the restaurant and bar, the pools and, of course, the complimentary water-sports and daily breakfast buffet. Also, the...

We have recently returned from a 10 day stay at the Tamarind hotel. From the very beginning of our stay with a welcoming Rum Punch and a welcoming greeting from Anthony and the reception staff we could not find fault with anything. Shontonia at the concierge desk was always there to help with a lovely smile and most helpful and...

Stayed here for two weeks on a b and b basis as we wanted to experience as many restaurants and tastes of Barbados as possible We went for a ocean front beach room and a stunning room over looking the beach was what we got.

Simply cannot praise this wonderful hotel enough. This is our second visit to this hotel and have to say it sets the bar high for any other future hotels we visit. The staff are friendly & will strive to meet & accommodate any requirements. The rooms are kept spotlessly clean & are comfortable. The hotel is near to all the...
