Just returned a few days ago from our 2nd stay at Tamarind Hotel, and it was awesome, even better than the first time. We thoroughly enjoyed our 7 night stay in a breathtaking beautiful ocean view room. Everything about this hotel is amazing; the ambiance, location, beach, the staff who couldn't be nicer, the service which is top notched. The... More

There is free use of their water sports equipment. My 6 yr old went sailing, snorkeling and banana boating. We brought our 3 small children with... More

This was our second visit to this hotel, with a ten year gap , but it did not disappoint. The breakfasts were still great with lots of choice. The bedroom was big with a lovely view of the sea. There are 3 pools and the beach is right there too, with lots of water sports included. It is a short... More

Stayed here in May 2015. The location is excellent .. The hotel although in need of a lick of paint and updating in outr room, this did not effect out stay, because after all how much time do you spend awake in a hotel room in Barbados? The beach is out of this world, yes you do get the beach... More

The Tamarind Cove Hotel is situated on the "Platinum Coast". Only a lovely and well kept garden separates it from the white sandy beach and the crystal clear, warm waters of the Caribbean. The rooms are fairly big. The junior suite with a sea view is really superb. The staff are friendly, helpful and courteous. The breakfast is modelled on... More

Loved every second of our stay at the Tamarind. We stayed in room 303, third floor but only 2 flights of little stairs. Excellent room very spacious with a balcony view over the pool and out to sea to watch the beautiful sun set. Buffet breakfast was very good with a wide range to suit all tastes with great service...
