Had a great week at the Tamarind. We had a Beach suite (room 328) which had a living room with sofa bed for one child and another bed was added for child number 2. We had our own kingsize bedroom, both rooms had an ensuite bathroom and we had a large balcony with loungers. The staff were delightful, the kids... More

My wife and 2 children (aged 8 and 6) stayed at the Tamarind for 10 nights in July 2015. We had an absolutely fantastic holiday - the hotel was superb and really made by the staff who are genuinely friendly. They remembered the kids names and really made you feel at home. The whole place has a really homely feel,... More

We spent two weeks here in July 2015. Myself, my wife and our 10 year old daughter. There are three swimming pools (one for adults only) and they were never crowded, and always clean. There were plenty of sunbeds available (shaded and in full sun). The beach is 10m away from the main pool. The beach was clean, there were... More

This is a fabulous hotel. Not too big, but with three pools and a couple of nice places to eat. And of course right on the beach. But what made it for our family visit was the staff. We were made to feel like family! When we turned up for lunch without our sons who had gone scuba diving, the... More

Not really a luxury hotel - a few letdowns (don't quite keep the place immaculate), food and restaurant is fairly standard fare. Its not 'posh' and in many ways this is what is great - friendly, good for families, everyone messing around the pool, happy hours etc. Free watersports is great if you like waterskiing. A few things worth noting... More

From the moment you step in, you will realise that is a very good property. We received a very warm welcome from the front desk manager Neil who was very calm and reassuring. This was followed by a very nice welcome cocktail and cold towel from the luggage attendant Anthony. The bed was very comfy and the room was always... More

Basic Bejan hotel don't expect too much Don't stay in the rooms on the ground floor near reception as every time the phone rings in reception you hear it & people waiting there. As it rains a lot be careful in corridors particularly in upstairs rooms Restaurant is pretty basic with the staff doing their best to keep birds out... More
