Nothing pretentious here. Large, comfortable rooms on the ocean. This is not a "resort" hotel with room service, beach service, etc. Nice place on the ocean with a great open air restaurant/bar, and good beach. We felt more in touch with the island and culture in this place verses a larger, more luxurious hotel.

We were recently at the Tamarind for a couple of days and enjoyed it greatly. The high point was the large room with plenty of space to relax and we had a great view of the ocean. The on site bar provided a good breakfast (for a reasonable cost).

Stayed here for 3 nights early in May and we loved it! The room was huge- would be great for those with kids. The view from our room was gorgeous (see photo) and I believe it is the same view for all of the rooms. Room Details: Great size, lots of storage areas, locked safe in the closet, small but...

The highlight of the hotel was the view. The view of Buck Island and Green Cay was beautiful. I really enjoyed the views and the breeze on the balcony. I would consider the rest of the hotel to be average to good. The room was large in size; however the furnishings were a bit outdated. The beach was on the...

Tamarind was a treat. There were 8 people in our group and each couple grabbed a cabana for $20 each. The beach is nice although getting in the water directly in front of the cabanas was not advised due to small urchins. There was only one real point of access on the beach to get out to swim/snorkel but there...

We're so glad you enjoyed our tikis on the beach and the fabulous marine life that we have by our reef. It's also great fun to rent a kayak and paddle out to Green Cay Island where you'll find additional snorkeling spots. The Deep End Bar and Grill is a guest and local favorite for good food and great cocktails....very...

I stayed for four days and found the resort very relaxing. Rooms were airy and large. Very helpful and friendly staff. Onsite dining and bar were busy with both locals and travelers with fun themed activities in the evening. Definitely stay here again.

Great resort, beautiful rooms. It's everything you need in a hotel. The restaurant and drinks at the hotel were great as well, although the restaurant was quite crowded due to the popular bingo night their host.

Tamarind Reef was not what I had expected, especially after my stay in St. Thomas. The beach is exactly what the name implies - reef/coral/sea urchinds. The views were beautiful, but you could only lookl. You could not get into the water and there was no sand beach to walk onl. The iguanas were a treat! They wander around everywhere....

We stayed on the second floor in November. I will start with the positives, the view is lovely and the staff are pleasant. The room is spacious. The nearby marina is pretty. The location is a straight shot to Christiansted. Now, the other side. We won't call it negative...the beach is full of sea urchins and biting flies. You can't...
