“Hidden Jewel of goa !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

A friend recommended this hotel, as they had great experience staying there last winter.

I am glad I listen to him. The staff and service is amazing. Rooms are clean and inviting, while kitchen and food is very hygenic and tasty (very important considerations if you travelling with family).

Tucked in a quiet neighborhood, its easy to get to many beaches quickly. Ofcouse bike and car rentals are available. Staff helped us with that. We felt very well taken care off.

Offcourse if you just want to chill out there a little pool to sit around and meet other travellers.
Like my friend, I highly recommend it. Hope you find it as charming as we did - GREAT value for your money.

Dear Sir,

We are very happy to say that a lot of our cherished guests have come to the Tamarind because other guests recommended our hotel and restaurant.

Yes, we do take great care and since ours is a family run hotel, guests can sense that extra touch.
However, we take nothing for granted and continue to work hard to keep our standards high.
So very glad you found everything up to a high standard and great value for money.

Also glad you enjoyed our pool, which I would like to add is about 25 ft by 60 ft one of the largest in hotels.

Hope you come back and give us another chance to pamper you.

Thanks & Regards

Dear Sir,

We are so glad you found our pricing competitive and food and rooms good. It is a matter of great pride for us that our specialty restaurant, the Cotinga is now getting quite popular and guests from all over come to eat with us.

I would like to mention that we do provide cars, but bikes & scooters are also available at our hotel to get that real feel of Goa.

Hope you visit us again.

Thanks & Regards

Need not to remember all the big names, big cost, and big hype resorts on Anjuna Beach. The Tamarind Resort is a top-notch, one of manner familiarity. The staff, the location, the food, the value - it's unmatched. The rooftop was stunning and the rooms were SO comfortable.

I was in a great location to restaurants and bars, which meant a lot for a large group of business travellers. As a former resident of Anjuna Beach who is warmly familiar with the surroundings as well as all of the hot spots and resorts.

I only stay at The Tamarind Resort when I go back to Anjuna Beach. Again, I couldn't say it enough- I had an amazing stay at The Tamarind!

You know you've hit the jackpot when you find a place thats not only pretty and super comfortable, but also has great food and really friendly staff that want to do whatever they can to help make your stay extremely pleasant. I went with a group of friends and their children, and never have I seen a bunch of kids happier. The swimming pool is lovely, the garden is beautiful with such gorgeous trees, and the food - oh the food!! Everything you order from the multi-cuisine menu is absolutely delicious, which in my opinion is a triumph and the management for The Tamarind should be proud of this achievement.
I highly recommend this hotel to everybody - because of the diversity of rooms available and their locations on the property, its actually perfect for families, couples or even the solo traveller!

Dear Guest,
It was a pleasure to look after you & your friends on your recent stay at the Tamarind Goa. Unlike the previous owners of The Tamarind, we love having children and are adding a lot of games and activities for them.

Our guests comfort is our top priority and we are so glad you appreciated our efforts and praised us so much.

Our owners are very particular about the food we serve and our ingredients are of the best quality and are especially procured and selected by them.

Your very kind words will be passed on to all concerned.

We look forward to having you with us again.

Thanks & Regards

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.
