I have been staying at Inn at Tamarind Court for many years and truly even before there was a 'Tamarind Court'... but rather it was 'rooms for rent' by the Sewer Family. The absolute wonderful location of Tamarind Court within proximity of town allows you to get to the ferry for a trip to St. Thomas, catch a taxi for a beach on the Northshore or the bus to go to the other side of the island and visit Coral Bay, shop at Dockside, Mongoose Junction or "in town", dine or catch the ferry to BVI and all under the power of your "two feet" alone! You really do not need a vehicle to get to anything around the Cruz Bay area.
The Inn at Tamarind Court is a little (22 rooms) piece of paradise ran by wonderful, hospitable folks, Barry, Georgeann and Stephanie and their staff. They can answer almost any question put to them and are not afraid to request "help" and advice or information from one of the locals who may be dining or having a beverage in the scenic Courtyard. The rooms are clean, comfortable and basic and considering the reasonable room rate a very real "steal" in comparison to the ever increasing price of lodging elsewhere on St. John. The daily booked room still includes a breakfast...what a bargain! The addition of TV and AC has added to the marketable requirements for many folks while on vacation. The lack of telephones in rooms is a blessing (in my opinion)... after all, you are on vacation! but there is a pay telephone available off the Courtyard.
The changing theme of dinner each night has proven popular and a great success for guests and locals alike. The rule of thumb is to try to dine early enough to guarantee a table. Dinner is a popular time to meet friends. Not to be forgotten is the movie and hot dog night on Saturday.
I have been visiting St John for many years, staying at Tamarind Court and have made many friends and I re-new friendships yearly; Tamarind Court is always the hub. I highly recommend this small hotel with personality!...it's not the Ritz but it is very REAL!...and I will go back soon.
