My boyfriend and I had an amazing time at Tamarind. Our room was overlooking the ocean which made for a breath taking view to wake up to every morning. The beach was just steps away from our room and was extremely well-kept, clean and relaxing. The staff was also very accommodating and kind! Special shout-outs to Crystal and Patrick who... More

This has to be one of the most beautiful settings in the world. The white sandy beach was yards from our beautiful room. The staff are excellent, we had five star service and our stay was made all the more special by the great personalities of Yvette and Alvin. What hotel serves you a Rum Punch while you are checking... More

It's the small attention to detail that sets this hotel above the rest. Nothing was overlooked and they always went the extra mile to please their guests. They even set up a special breakfast table in the bar so I could watch an early morning match. I really didn't expect that. Unlike so many corporate hotels the staff appear GENUINELY... More

I cannot recommend this hotel enough. We stayed for two weeks in June and had the most wonderful time with our two children. The hotel itself is very laid back Caribean style and you are met upon arrival by the traditional 'blow your socks' off rum punch. All staff from the moment we arrived to the moment we left were...

A warm welcome on arrival and friendly helpful staff (Neil, Crystal and Antonia). We have stayed here many times now. There are lots of different rooms available giving a variation of experiences. If you take young children the girls at Tamarind club are outstanding. The Paynes bay beach is beautiful. There are beach sellers, they are governed by the security... More

The staff is very friendly and pleasant. We enjoyed speaking with all the staff members but especially Patrick, Crystal and Tiffany. Although we ate at nearby restaurants the food here was very good too. Anything we wanted , the staff accommodated.

We had an incredible time at Tamarind. The staff was friendly, helpful, and genuinely interested in your experience in Barbados. We barely left the resort. Specifically, I would like to thank Chrystal and Patrick. Chrystal had excellent advice on local dining spots, and was a delight to speak with. She really went above and beyond to make sure we had...

Excellent resort. Accommodation very clean. Lovely pools, really only two where used. If you didn't have children you might have found it a bit noisy at times. But there is a lively beach to relax by. Patrick at the pool was very helpful, always smiling and friendly a real asset to the hotel. The waitresses were always excellent, sorry too... More
