We ended up staying at Tamarind Tree during a very busy weekend in Runaway Bay and we were not willing to spend $300 for one night at Jewels. Initially we were hesitant as there were groups of people in the parking lot sitting drinking and being very loud, people hanging around the lobby area etc. and Jamaica being what it... More

I have stayed at the Tamarind a few times. A basic room, that is clean with a comfortable bed and pillows. Has air conditioning in each room, private shower with hot water and good water pressure. The front desk is respectful and courteous with about your privacy and safety. If you want a basic hotel at a super price this... More

I had the pleasure of staying at the the Tamarind Tree resort for one night. One thing about this resort is the consistency in price. It has been the same for three years and this is from January to December. It is comfortable and the room is worth more than the price. I can say this because i have stayed... More

We took this hotel only as we arrived late this evening and there were not even a few options to stay overnight. We had two rooms, in one we had a huge cockroach. The service guy came, saw, hit the cockroach and left. No other room was provided and the hotel was not fully booked at all. The hotel pool... More

Having booked our stay on line and had many conversations with the staff at Tamarind Tree we were ready to spend a week at what we considered to be a reasonable price of 78USD. We had stayed at the Tamarind Tree in 2001 and although the hotel was a little basic it suited our needs. We have family living in... More

We had a lovely stay at this quaint little establishment. This was our first trip to Jamaica and we heard about this spot from friends who had discovered it a few years ago. It is a family run hotel, about a 5 minute walk from the beach. The atmosphere is very serene. The staff is incredibly friendly. Our room was... More

I enjoyed my weekend at Tamarind Tree Resort. And i belive my associates share the same view as well. We were well taken care of and excellent service was shown. The only thing that i will recommend for this resort is that more entertainment be provided especialy for young people like myself.

After spending a month online researching for economical hotels that were above standarad, I was amazed to find The Tamarind Tree Resort. The Tamarind Tree Hotel is a cozy, family run establishment that is centrally located in one of Jamaica's best kept secret destinations: Runaway Bay!
