First of all I want to say that there ARE other places that are affordable besides this place. It doesn't seem that way from what I researched so I ended up ignoring the horrible reviews of mistreatment of other guests thinking they must have just been hard to deal with or something but alas... I was wrong. If you can't... More

I would like to express my sincere apology for any inconvenience you may have encountered while visiting St.John. At this time I would like to clear up some issues while stating only facts. My name is Michele not Stephanie. You never met Stephanie, although she did make several attempts thru-out your stay to try and talk with you about our... More

We stay here every trip we make to St. John. We are made to feel very at home, and although not super fancy, the staff goes out of their way to meet your needs. Located in Cruz Bay, it is a short walk to stores and restaurants. We wouldn't stay anywhere else when visiting the island.

This place was exactly what we had hoped it could be as far as price and location. It has a friendly small bed and breakfast feel, and is situated close to downtown without being too close to all the noise of late night activities. Pay for a good breakfast in the morning to start out a walk downtown, or enjoy... More

Does not take American Express. Our room did not have a hair dryer so just plan accordingly. We had a jammed itinerary so were there only two nights and for very little time. Just to crash and get ready for the day. The little road to the parking lot was alarming at first since you drive though an area that... More

St. John is quite expensive so we were happy to find this hotel at a reasonable price in a good location. We ended up in two different rooms during our stay (which we knew in advance). One room was very tired and very bare bones. The second room was nicer but nothing you'd gush over. As many have written, you're... More

My boyfriend and I recently had a 4-night, 5-day stay with the folks at Tamarind and it was perfect for our trip. We didn't spend much time at the end and did a lot of traveling aroud the island, but it was comfortable for what little rest we needed, including AC and cable for those lazy moments. The location was... More

The Tamarind is a convenient & casual place to stay in Cruz Bay, with an outdoor restaurant/bar that offers excellent seasonal dinners on the premises. The ferry dock, many restaurants, and two grocery stores are only a few minutes walk from the Inn. Two laundries are located next door. Clean, comfortable, air-conditioned rooms are geared to meet most budgets, from... More

We were last in St. John twenty years ago and we remembered the Tamarind Court as a vibrant place. Deciding to finally revisit the island, we booked a room for 8 days. I want to stress that we are not travelers that can afford to spend $500 a night on a room so, at $148, the Tamarind looked like a... More

I would first like to apologize for the issues you had during your visit. Everyone on staff is more than happy & willing to fix problems that should arise; we just need to be informed about them while you are here so they can be handled immediately. There is absolutely NO excuse for tattered linens since there are plenty of... More
