This is different than many of Tortola restaurants Extremely laid back and very casual. You actually sit in plastic chairs on a patio. Service was very good from a very friendly lady named Mary. She made the experience. Food was very good. Sausage pasta was excellent. Very limited wine list. Great if you want something different.

We stayed one night for the first time this past weekend after finishing a fabulous sailing charter. All six of us just loved it- it's a little worn, a little well used, but totally authentic. The rooms were true tropical and the food just superb. The locals beach which is a healthy hike down and up is just spectacular. If... More

There aren't that many places on Tortola that will let you stay for just one night. This is one. We would have stayed at the Nanny Cay Hotel right by the marina it they had availability. It would have saved us lots of taxi fares. Pros: One night stays available, dinner was really good. cool pool even though we didn't... More

I had a such a great experience at the Tamarind Club while camping down on the beach at Josiah's Bay. They were very hospitable, friendly, and chill. It was a fantastic authentic environment with a beautiful lounge/bar area. The food was superb, and the drinks fantastic. The crowd there was a cool mix of local regulars, tourists, and some just...

Most accommodating great atmosphere and food. The staff is very knowledgable about the area. Just a few minutes walk to spectacular beaches and awesome surfing I think this is a must visit place when on Tortola. Another world totally delightful

This hotel is run by a bunch of flakes. They screwed up my reservation by one week and luckily for me, didn't have any rooms available. I found a much nicer place in Tortola for the same amount. I have been trying to get my deposit refunded for 6 months. Apparently they don't know how to use their credit card... More

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
