This is a older pretty well kept boutique resort. The kitchens are not very well stocked. If you plan on staying and cooking in the room make sure you let them know early what you'll need for the kitchen. Love the beachfront has rocky shoal and Sandy Beach nice and quiet no nightlife. Great pool. On-site restaurant is limited but... More

I loved this place; however, it does depend on what you want from a resort / hotel. This is the hotel for those who love the natural beauty of St. Croix and want to immerse themselves in that. You sacrifice some amenities (i.e. no concierge or sophisticated exercise room) for being closer to nature. Every room is ocean front and... More

this resort is small and low key, but to me it seemed overpriced due to location even in low season! the rooms were basic for tropical location with a great view and constant ocean breeze. it was a good choice for travel with kids. the 'gated security' was a bit of a joke. decent reef with a resident turtle at...

This was a great resort spot for our second trip to St Croix (our first time in 2001 was at the very awesome Hibiscus, but that resort was closed at this time). We booked through Expedia; when we arrived they gave us an upgraded room (#114 [aka #14]) due to a reservation mix-up, so we got a lovely ground-floor room... More

As others have noted, this resort is nice but not 5-star. It is part of a complex owned by a couple of investors who lease space for the hotel, bar and restaurant, marina, and an upscale nearby restaurant. Although the bed was not the best for my back, the room had nice accommodations, including kitchenette with small refrigerator and stove.... More

My family and I stayed at Tamarind Reef Resort last week and had a wonderful time! The view from our rooms were beautiful. The rooms need some updating but the views made up for that.

My partner and I stayed at Tamarind Reef for a week to celebrate my 50th birthday in April 2014. We loved our stay from beginning to end.

My family and I flew into St. Croix and arrived at our booked hotel, only to find out that it was closed down. We were left with nowhere to stay. St. Croix's health inspector, Stevie Webster (my knight in shining armor), helped us connect with the Tamarind Reef Resort, where they made room for my family last minute. The staff... More

We stayed at Tamarind Reef Resort for 4 days and 3 nights. The location was beautiful and the staff was great. The water sports at the hotel were great, we did Kayaking, Paddle Boarding and Snorkeling. The reef off the hotel has beautiful fish and apparently turtles (which we didn’t get to see this trip). There is also an island... More

We stayed here for a week on spring break. The cost was half that of the two fancier resorts on the island. I visited both and found Tamarind to be less pretentious and a lot more fun. The rooms are big and clean. All are set up as a single big room and all have balconies. The only negative was... More
