“Nice Property!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Tamarind Hotel is one of the ‘Best Hotels’ to stay in Goa. It feels like a private property with a small swimming pool. Nice & cozy rooms, 40" LCD's with Digital TV for uninterrupted entertainment, private safe box, mini bar, good interiors and well maintained rooms too. The food is nice & scrumptious, the service & the staff is very good. A good place to stay with family & I highly recommend the same.

I recommend this place whether you are travelling to Goa on vacation with friends or even with children! The bakery is amazing definitely recommend trying the chocolate cake and other deserts! I like that the rooms are cozy , clean and comfortable! The pool is really lovely as well. Staff was very friendly and food was deliciously packed with love. I will go back there for sure.

Dear Guest,

Many thanks for sending your comments on Trip Advisor. We are happy to see you that you enjoyed your trip in every way. Yes, we are not on the beach but we are actually not far from 3 beaches. Also our guests seem to enjoy the beach etc in the day and are very happy to return to a more tranquil environment in our hotel. Our owners are very keen on the cooking and they make their own recipes.
We have just redone our hotel trying to keep a very high standard keeping in mind every detail to make a guest comfortable. Please be assured that we will all look after you as well whatever the season.

We hope you visit us again.

Regards
Manager

We went on a holiday planned for a 4 day stay in Mid of April and chose this place. First thing, i would visit again and second , recommend all my friends here.
Tamarind hotel is situated a bit off from the Anjuna sea shore but the location is really awesome.. Once you enter in the property, the Garden area with tall trees around, the open air restaurant.. its simply an amazing experience to spend the holiday breakfast and dinner... The rooms are very neat and clean and well equipped with Beautiful lighting, Big LCD's, safe-lockers, Mini-bar etc..
We had taken a standard room. Poolside area is as well well maintained.
Bike service and cab with good quality is appreciable and affordable.
May be its the off season we visited Goa but we loved the peaceful environment the place maintained.
The location is well situated with Baga, Anjuna, Vagator beaches all in just within 5-10 min biking.
The restaurant, not to forget The Cotinga, Food and its service is excellent... I m still grasping the story depicted on the wall of a bird cotinga flying out of the cage.. It was like always a refreshing experience..
I would suggest a perfect place for couples.

Dear Guest,

Thanks you for choosing the Tamarind for your stay in Goa. Glad to know that you enjoyed the bakery. Some of our recipes are actually passed down two generations to our present owners. They continue their passion for food and hence ensure only the best and most authentic ingredients go into the dishes. Bakery is their special interest.
We are also happy to know that you enjoyed the pool and will definitely share your complements with all concerned.

Thank you

Warm Regards
Manager

The hotel is clean, service is excellent and rooms are comfortable and well equipped and beautiful poolside. They provided us very gud tariff as well. Above all the food was "finger licking good :)" and the staffs pleasant and ever helpful,especially Subash. Their Kutinga special dinner is worth trying..:)

We went on a vacation to goa in April 2013. We selected this hotel based on the reviews. Well we did not find the reviews wrong. The hotel is very near to Anjuna and vagator beach in goa. The rooms are excellent (we opted for the standard rooms). Very clean and lively. Every room has big lcd tv sets and small refrigirators. The staff is good and you almost get everything you need inside the hotel (like bike on hire and even fuel for the bike) in same or lesser cost than outside shops. The pool was very clean and temprature controlled. Overall its a very good hotel.

Cons: not many but the service for room deliveries are a bit slow. The bathrooms of some rooms are really small and the wifi connectivity is pretty slow.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for taking time to write about your stay with us at The Tamarind Hotel.
Most people,like yourselves, go to busy places during the day and later come back to more peaceful places like ours .They also enjoy the varied special dishes that our chefs cook up and our all night service of delicious snacks and desserts.
We have a range of rooms here and offer guests a choice if they like.W also upgrade rooms at a nominal cost (subject to availability)
On certain days WIFI in Goa can be erratic.We have now installed more broadband solutionsto ensure good speed for our WIFI ,which ,as you know is free for all residents.
Hope to see you back with us again.
Warm Regards
Manager

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in mid feb. Its a nice, calm and beautiful property with excellent and well kept rooms. The rooms give you a greek world charm. The breakfast buffet was fairly good,though limited variety was offered. The staff was helpful and polite. The only hitch is that it is far from anjuna beach. You need to have a bike or scooty to go the beach. The bikes or scooty is available just outside the hotel although a bit expensive because there is no other renting option nearby. The property is in heart of North goa.

Dear Guest,
Glad you liked our hotel.We are not on the beach ,but are 2 km from 3 beaches.
Most guests visit busier places during the day and come back to relax and be pampered by us.
We are pleased to mention the great response to our restaurant-The Cotinga.
In fact a lot of people who do not stay with us are also our regular diners.
We give cyles for free and scooties and motor bikes for hire ,guaranteed cheaper than anyone else. Hope you give us another chance to sreve you.
Warm Regards
