The rooms are very nice; the view from the rooms are great. Staff is very friendly. Pool tables, pingpong table and games for guests to enjoy. Very good location with restaurants nearby. Easy ocean access right across the street.

This was our first time here and we are planning on returning next year. Very friendly staff. Parking is great. Room needs a few minor repairs, however the balcony, ocean view & sunset were fantastic!

After a bit of negotiation, we upgraded to an ocean view, ground floor room with patio. The room was HUGE. Property fronts to a busy street, so accept some street noise while you enjoy the sunset view from the patio. Room is very well appointed with comfy bed and good amenities. You are walking distance to the sand, shops and... More

the view of the ocean was beautiful. The recreation room was the best. Pool tables, ping pong, board games that could be checked out for use in the room, movies on DVD to watch in room, goggles for use in the pool. It was really one of the best feature of the hotel. The staff was friendly, caring, and flexible.... More

Check in was easy and fast with very helpful staff. Room was very clean and large. Beds were comfortable. The balcony was awesome with a great ocean view, even though it was not a direct facing ocean room it still had a great view. We sat on the balcony in the mornings reading the complementary news paper and it was... More

The Tamarack was perfect for relaxation and beach time as well as provided a great spot to gather with relatives in the evening. The staff was friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and... More

Beautiful facility. Feels like you are in the tropics with the lush landscaping around the pool. Easy walk to restaurants and shops. Beautiful views of the beach across the street and great sunsets. Breakfast was only ok.

I stayed at the Tamarack for a friend's bachelorette party due to the price and oceanfront location. Although the stay was pleasant and the staff was very courteous and helpful, I wasn't thrilled with the amenities or the room. The room had a very stale odor of mildew and the pool area was very basic. The general clientele also seemed... More

Great place to stay. The location was amazing. All you have to do is walk out of the hotel and walk a couple of feet and you were on the beach. I could not of asked for a better hotel. The room was great too.
