We have spent 8 consecutive annual visits at the Tamarind. Most of the visits are for a month duration. We stay in a one bedroom apartment but they also have studio and two bedroom units. The grounds are like a tropical garden. The units are fully furnished and have full kitchens or kitchenettes. No fancy frills like dishwashers and ice... More

The arrival at Hotel Tamarind truly felt like coming home. The beautiful garden surrounding the swimming pool gave an exotic first impression. Lizards dominated the narrow path that led to our appartment. From the balcony we could see Saint Barths and sometimes the sugarbirds would pay us a visit. We had an incredibly relaxed stay in a friendly atmosphere! Thanks... More

This hotel is located in one of the more peaceful spots in St. Maarten that is within walking distance of Philipsburg. I am a college student who lived here for 3 months on an internship from Connecticut. I was very pleased with how they treated their customers. I made new friends from this hotel, got to enjoy the pool surrounded... More

We stayed two and a half weeks at the Tamarind and we found it to be the perfect place, whith a very friendly staff, nice clean rooms which spacious balconies, a lovely garden which a nice pool, and a good location in a quiet nabourhood to start exploring the island. We loved it here, and would recommend this place highly.

Tamarind Management responded to my September 6, 2014 review, claiming that they could not find my original reservation in their system searching under my screen name. Accordingly, they suggested that I did not stay at their hotel but instead at an "apartment owned and managed by an individual owner." The reason that Tamarind management could not find my reservation in... More

Located in Point Blanche, it is next to the port and distribution warehouses. So the area has an industrial vibe to it. The Tamarind is a small apartment complex that is ideal for a business trip or long stay visitors to the island, not the kind of place for short term tourists. The rooms are being remodeled, but the one... More

I am quite baffled why this hotel has so many glowing reviews. I was scared to sit on or touch any of the furniture because everything looked so old and disgusting with stains all over everything. The bathroom and parts of the ceilings were covered in gross stains as well. The bathroom was crawling with ants. Basically, mold and stains... More

I am sorry for a late answer to you're comments on trip adviser, I was looking for your name in our reservations but could not find it. This tells me that unfortunately the apartment you rented was not among the rooms managed by the hotel. A few apartments are owned and managed by the individual owners . In future if... More
