The Tamarind Club is a boutique hotel in Tortola. If you are looking for luxury this is not the place for you. There is no check in table and no front entrance really. When you first walk in there is a lot of smoke smell. When you do finally "check in" they don't give you a key because the doors... More

I have made about seven or eight visits to this hotel, and have always enjoyed my time there. The food is good and the atmosphere is peaceful. It is by no means a fancy place, and there are the usual bathroom challenges as you will find elsewhere in the BVIs. Wifi is also minimal. But the owners are always helpful... More

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
