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

Its not up there with La Sammana on the other side of the island, but neither are the prices. This is a quality,well run, friendly, value for money base to enjoy SXM.

We stayed here before and after a sailing cruise. Price was right and staff super friendly and helpful. Seems to be combo hotel/long term rental property. Nice basic rooms with kitchenette & balcony. Although close enough, wouldn't necessarily wish to walk back and forth to Front Street in the dark - for one thing, there aren't sidewalks the entire way... More
