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

My stay at the Tamarind Court was great!! Centrally located in Cruz Bay it gives you a jumping point to everywhere in town. There are live bands in Cruz bay three times a week at leas and he Tamarind Court gives you an easy walk to and from all the night pots. Stephanie and crew took great care of me... 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

I recently stayed at Inn at Tamarind Court for two nights while on a brief trip. I have to agree with the other reviews, this hotel is very basic, very worn and overall just fair. However, let me start with some positives -- the location is great. This is the Caribbean so the neighborhood may look a little seedy but... More

I finally found the place after about a 30 minute walk. I'd heard of it through Fodor's, I expected something pretty basic. They called it "pedestrian". I found it to be filthy, obsolete, dark, and not well-cared for. The neighborhood is a little seedy and there's really no great views from there. I wanted a private bath so paid for... More

Tamarind Court is a quaint little place right in the heart of Cruz Bay (the main town of St John). It is definitely a no-frills hotel with limited office hours and small rooms. The single rooms (one twin bed) share a bathroom. The larger rooms (about twice the price) have private bathrooms and are a little nicer. I stayed for... More
