Just returned from a lovely holiday finishing with a week at the Tamarind. The hotel is beautifully situated right on the beach. We had a junior ocean suite which was spacious and had great views over the pool and out to sea.. The hotel was spotless and the staff were really friendly and helpful. Breakfasts were really good. In the... More

Again we have experienced a super break at the Tamarind. Our first visit was December 2014 and we did wonder if we would enjoy another great holiday in December 2015. Yes we did, all the staff were still helpful and polite, food very good and entertainment at the hotel great. Speaking to the staff many have worked there for a... More

My husband took me to Barbados for my 34th birthday. We stayed at the Tamarind and enjoyed the experience. Overall, the staff were very friendly, service was really good most of the time, and the room was clean and comfortable. Before I go into detail, I must say that Barbados is an island full of incredibly kind people. The locals... More

We stayed at Tamarind Cove Hotel for seven nights. It is a lovely hotel. Its not pretentious - elegant by name and by nature. The room was a good size, comfy beds and furniture including patio chairs and pleasant decor. Good choice of food at breakfast. Dinners were either themed or a la carte with a choice of about six...

Third time at Tamarind and, as always a fantastic time. Staff are exceptional and staying in 115 again was like being at home. Superb. It was amazing that the staff who were there during our last stay remembered us from day 1. Well done Adrian and all at Tamarind

A very good hotel but the real highlight was the staff. They would do anything for you and were unfailingly polite and friendly. Only negative comment on the hotel is that it would have been nice to have a comfortable area to sit out in the evening to listen to the entertainment.

This hotel was recommended by a colleague of mine, who is the same age as me (early 40's). She couldn't say enough great things, and after our recent stay at Tamarind..... I have no idea why. First to be fair, I will say we were probably in the wrong locale on the island. People we encountered and commented to about... More

We've been to the island numerous times and have stayed in a range of establishments from Glitter Bay to apartments in St Lawrence. Now though I think we've finally found the happy balance. We had a Junior Suite Ocean View room which was spacious, clean and offered a fab view from the private balcony but set back far enough in... More

Am staying here with girlfriends and we are having a lovely relaxing time. Tamarind is perfect for us, a little tired in parts but comfortable and welcoming. Staff are all fantastic, friendly and good fun. Nothing is too much trouble. Lunch menu is quite large but salads are good, easily large enough to share between two, three small swimming pools...
