Loved Clint the bartender! HATED all of the cigarette smoke! Everyone that works there smokes all the time, with few exceptions. The bar area is filled with smoke even in the morning when you walk out for toast and coffee. The smoke floats into the restaurant during dinner and really ruins the meal. Patrons know they can smoke so they... More

We stayed here after our charter sail through the BVI's because we needed a place close to the airport. This is by no means luxury. The rooms are basic and pretty clean ( our shower had a drainage problem). Clean towels and linens, no toiletries are provided, so make sure you have your own. Hot water some of the time.... More

A friend suggested we stay here before and after our charter and I am so glad that we did. I had been here several times prior, but had not stayed as a guest. Fresh fruit, toast with butter, nutella, jam and coffee every morning poolside. Delicious offerings on the menu - always some tantalizing aroma coming from the kitchen. Loved... More

This was our second stay at the Tamarind Club. If your looking for a 5 Star resort, stay on St. Thomas. If your looking for a clean place run by a family who takes excellent care of their guests, then this is your place. The facilities are good and the ambiance will take your stress levels to record lows. With... More

Reviews for places you love are tricky. Do you tell the world so they can experience the awesome or do you keep the tip to yourself? After all, there are only so many rooms at the Tamarind Club and I would hate to cause a sell out when *I* want to come. Fortunately for you, I am in a generous... More

If you like smelly outdoor furniture, a rude bartender and a hotel that is hard to find, this is your place. Finding it is an adventure, since the two posted signs are so faded you have a hard time telling which way the arrow is pointing!! No parking, just a field and no sign of the outside to let you...

We had just finished 6 nights on a 48 ft Marine Max cat and wanted to stay somewhere close-ish to airport for early departure the next morning. I had found this hotel on internet and we had 4 couples. When we pulled up, they all looked at me like are you crazy!! We walked up to the bar and met... More

If you are staying here you will need plenty of bug spray! Having said that, I enjoyed my stay considering the price. BVI is expensive. I was visiting the island to look at sailboats, so knowing I would be spending my time away from the hotel I wanted to save some money. Tamarind Club is close to the airport and... More

Saw some less than great reviews and just had to chime in. I just booked our 4th stay here and this time for 9 people, two families. This is a spectacular find in Tortola. We are boat charterers and have spent the night before our charter here whenever possible. It is a short hop from the airport and the marinas.... More

We stayed at the Tamarind Club May 14 following a bareboat charter. It was recommended to us by a native Tortolan friend who understands we aren't cookie-cutter resort hotel types. After 10 days of sailing, we had the island vibe and didn't want to spoil it on our last night. This family-run place is a find. The open-air poolside bar... More
