My wife and I stayed here for 10 days in a pool view room. It was actually both a pool view and sea view from the back of the hotel so great sunsets and morning views (Rm 241). We only stayed B&B which I think is best as there are so many local restaurants, although similar price to hotel. We...

This was by far the only place we have stayed that had such friendly and hospitable staff. Everyone was very helpful and just seemed to want all guests to have a wonderful experience. The location was very good, you could take a local bus ,right outside the door which is an experience all foreigners should have. There are plenty of...

Oh Barbados was absolutely wonderful. We stayed B&B, the property was absolutely beyond amazing. The staff was simply gorgeous. I can tell you the bars on both sides of the property was like heaven on earth especially at Happy Hour. The restaurant offered good meals and world class service. We will all be back again next year with the kids...

Just returned from an amazing 11 nights at the tamarind. Our day started with a great breakfast - a lovely Omelette from Ether. The choice of inclusive water sports was fab, of which we tried them all. The team here were so good and safety conscious. The pool area was just right and the snorkelling really good, including sting rays....

This was our second stay at the Tamarind having spent two weeks here last Easter and it felt as if we had never been away. The staff are just the best that I have encountered on the island and I took the opportunity to spend some time at the Colony Club and Waves to get a comparison and Tamarind comes...

Our first visit to Barbados and were really enjoyed it. This is a great hotel where all the staff are friendly (not just “corporate” friendly). The management are very visible & accessible. In the unlikely you have any kind of problem I’m sure they would look to rectify immediately. Majority of guests are from UK, with others from US and...

We have just returned from another fabulous 10 night holiday away at Tamarind Hotel, Paynes Bay. The weather was superb (a sunny 28-30 degrees every day) and the hotel and staff were yet again excellent. It would be fair to say the Hotel itself is not quite 5 star European luxury although it is spotlessly clean and well maintained and...
