We had a great stay at the Tamarind! The hotel & grounds are just as pictured. I found that our bathroom was actually quite updated- no complaints there. We were in room 106 which was a great location- directly in front of the pool/bar area. It might not be a good location during the peak season though. The bed is...

We had a week at the Tamarind which we thoroughly enjoyed. The room was a good size and well air conditioned, the facilities, especially all the free water sports were excellent and the bars and restaurant were also good. Best of all though were the staff who were charming and couldn't do enough to help. The hotel is situated on...

We visited Barbados in nov 2012 and stayed at this brilliant resort. We travelled with our son 23 yr old and our niece in her late 20's . The resort offered fantastic facilities, good water sports, and lovely staff. The manageress allocated to us was antonia, a lovely character, very helpful and nothing was to much to ask of her....

We attended a destination wedding over a long weekend and we had a great time. Our room had an ocean view and a small patio at the ground level and we really enjoyed sitting there. The staff was generally very helpful, and the food at the restaurant good, and the breakfast buffet was excellent. They also have free water activities...

We went to the Tamarind to celebrate my 50th birthday and it totally exceeded our expectations. We had an Ocean view room on the 3rd floor and there was a birthday cake and wine & a birthday card all there on our arrival -nice touch! The beaches are just beautiful and you really aren't pestered by sellers, they are all...

The kids club, water sports and waiting staff are excellent; very open, friendly and willing to go the extra mile to ensure you enjoy your stay. I would say that the kids club would suit children up to the age of 10. Breakfast is great - a good variety of fruits, pastries, cooked breakfasts and eggs/ omelettes cooked to order....

Our holiday at this hotel, from may 17 until may 28, was in one word "excellent". The hotel is situated at the westside from the isle, ensuring beautiful sunsets. The room we had was excellent with all facilities you can think of, including a bottle of water and a spread bed, when going to bed. The staff has been in...

The service and location are stunning as many other reviewers have already reported.

The staff is amazing! So personal and friendly and chatty but not intruding. I really liked the laid back atmosphere in Barbados and service is overall great everywhere. They seem to take pride in being great at service. Big rooms which was great since we had a cot. But on the negative side; the bathrooms need to be refurbished. Really...

This hotel is amazing. Everything is top of the line. The service, the amenities, the food. I loved it all. I would definitely come back here. The pools were so nice (there are three of them) and the turndown service at night meant I didn't have to keep asking for more towels or conditioner. This is the type of hotel...
