After visiting Barbados for the last 12 years on vacation and staying at The Almond Beach Village, we found The Tamarind to be an excellent choice.
We found it welcoming, friendly and refreshing. The team there was excellent and attentive. Our room was ocean and beach facing which was excellent, with stunning views over the Caribbean. The rooms were well presented with flat screen TV's, fridge, docking station for an iPod, soft furnishing and a balcony with comfy seats. The bathroom was well laid out with double sinks, shower etc.., possibly a little tired in decoration but that's me being a little picky.
The local beach guys were a bit annoying, constantly approaching us for jet ski rides etc..
Breakfast was the typical buffet and ok. Dining there was not great, so we ate out every night. The Cliff, Lone Star, Cin Cin, Tides were all excellent. Went out to Scarlett's, Lexy's piano bar etc.. which we found fun.
Overall, a thoroughly enjoyable time in Barbados (again), with The Tamarind looking after us.
Really looking forward to my vacation next year at The Tamarind........possibly two stays!! ;-)
