I have just returned from a two night stay at Tamarind. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. The reception is airy and I had a room (215) overlooking the gardens and had a sea view. The room was spacious and included a walk in wardorbe. The gardens are well maintained and the beach is fantastic. The watersports are comlimentary... More

This was our second visit to the Tamarind and we enjoyed it as much as we did last year. I had booked the whole package thro' British Airways and e-mailed the hotel a week before we arrived to request a top floor room. I received a prompt response saying that they would do their best to fulfil my request. At... More

We have been coming to Tamarind for about three years now, and I have to say that off all the Hotels we have stayed in over the last 13 years this is one off the very best. The Hotel is set on a lovely sandy beach on the West Coast, so it’s lovely for swimming. The staff are just so... More

Our family of 4 (with 2 teenagers) had a lovely stay at the Tamarind. From the warm greeting at reception, the fruit and ice pops brought out to the lounge chairs to the bartenders and housekeepers, everyone made us feel like we were part of a (happy) extended family. The rooms are large and comfortable, with plenty of drawers for... More

We stayed for just a week on a full board basis as a party of 11 including 5 grandchildren and 2 grandparents plus the middle generation. What a great time we all had. The hotel has about 250 rooms and it was not totally full so staff had time to deal well with everyone. The staff were all very friendly... More

The staff are amazingly friendly, the beach is lovely - and the beds very comfortable. We stayed on a B & B basis and the excellent breakfasts kept us going until the evening with just a snack during the day. A big plus are the free watersports and morning sailing lessons were brilliant. Will definitely go again!

We stayed at the Tamarind Jan 2014 and decided to make a return visit to Barbados having had a less than successful holiday in Mexico Nov 2014. We were at first a bit apprehensive to return to the same hotel but we should not have feared as The Tamarind more than exceeded our expectations and now for us it is... More

Very very friendly people. Great beach location. Very relaxing. A warm welcome on arrival after the taxi from the airport. Great food at the buffet breakfast. Nice pools to sit around and relax reading. Or head for the sea with the paddle boards, jet skiis, or the inflatable ride behind the speedboat.

One of the aspects of this visit to the Tamarind was the warmth of the welcome. I have to say that the staff here are superb - always smiling, always polite and helpful, and nothing is too much trouble. The room my wife and I shared was clean and comfortable with a sea view. The air conditioning was effective and... More

It's taken me forever to get round to writing this review but I had to write one to praise our stay. We were here for 2 weeks on honeymoon in September and were treated brilliantly. We had an upgrade to a suite with a sea view. As we arrived in the evening in darkness we didn't know what to expect... More
