I stayed at Tamarind in January of 09. This is great value. In terms of location you are five minutes from the ferry, great restaurants, bars. There's even a small market around the corner. In terms of safety, the PD is one hundred yards down the street. It is five minute walk to the Visitors Center where you get the... More

I went to St. John with a group of people for a wedding and was on a budget. A friend and I decided to stay a little longer than the group so we opted to move from the Lavender Hill Suites(see my review of Lavender Hill) to the Inn at Tamarind Court for a change of scenery. Big mistake...I had... More

We recently stayed at the Inn at Tamarind Court in one of their apartments. Our group was my wife, two teenage daughters, my mother-in-law and me. Before you let this surprise you, just know that my mother-in-law is a lot of fun and quite the world traveler! We were looking for value and a place we could stretch out for... More

I was envious after meeting the owner at check-in. I wanted to be her. A Texas native that just bit the bullitt and bought the damn thang and moved down there. That took alot of nerve. I wished I could be her that instant. After staying there one night I felt like the inn had the perfect location on the... More

We just recently stay at the Tamarind Court and we're shocked by the previous negative reviews. No, it is not a resort or anything fancy, but has a "local" vibe which was exactly what we all wanted. The rooms are basic, but do have Cable & A/C which we found out is a luxury in the VI. There was also... More

Pay more and go to other place or do not go to St. John. Bad place to sleep and rest. Very noise. The restaurant is good.

My husband and I stay at Tamarind Court last May b/c our friends were getting married at the Westin. This was one of the nastiest places I've ever stayed. We were on budget so this was the cheapest we could fine. It's wasn't even worth what we paid. We didn't even get to check in until the 3rd day of... More

I have stayed at many of the fancy resorts & villas on St. John over the years, but decided for a last minute trip to give Tamarind a try. Glad I did! The Rundown: Inn at Tamarind Court is NOT a five star resort with ocean front suites, featuring a balcony w/ infinity edge pool & hot tub, with your... More

If your a resort traveler or need a 24 hour concierge, this is not the place for you. If you want to meet and spend time relaxing with the locals and see what life on a small Caribbean island is like, The Tamarind Inn is your spot. Incredibly clean, great bar and restaurant, very helpful and friendly staff. Its a... More
