Hotel tamarin is a cosy motel. The room is pleasant. Service: Good. Staff at your disposal. Food: Tasty. Restaurant is well reputed since we noticed non-residents coming for lunch. Cleanliness: Good level. Overall: Good place to be. Beware the swimming pool is very deep!

Had been there for one night only as we were touring the southern part of the island and just needed a cozy place to settle in for the night with our two little kids. Great welcome, indeed a cozy atmosphere. We really enjoyed the a la carte dinner with the best breadfruit soup i have ever tasted. Loved the dishes... More

If you are looking for a get away from a busy life, thats the place. It is all simple and the staffs are helpful and friendly. Special mention to the reservations lady, the malagasy spa therapist and one waiter who was really helpful during breakfast. (Sorry, we cant remember the names).

Been there for the day package. First impression: hotel looks like a bungalow, old dated furniture - not modern at all. Was given welcoming cocktail on arrival. Baggage boy didn't bother to take our bag. Pool looked clean on the surface but there was accumulated dirt at the bottom, which only showed when diving. Lunch service at restaurant was good,...

Great little hotel for the price. Exceeded our expectation from reviews we saw. Welcome drink on arrival & escorted to room. Room itself is very 70s 80s retro style and clean. Most furniture were in good condition. Wardrobe could use some TLC. Amenities available were very satisfactory such as a mini bar, safe, hair dryer, laundry service, etc. Spa session... More

Not a bad looking place, opposite tamarin main beach.. Nice big pool.. Worst restaurant service and food ever, was so disappointed. Rooms are average looking, beds are good and firm.. Toilets looks abit aged and wished toiletries were offered in shower. The best moment was the spa, we had the couples massage and that was perfect no complaints.

Overall our stay at Tamarin was ok. The staff was friendly and hospitable, the rooms were tidy and clean and globally the hotel was quite nice. The hotel is quite old and has is charms but could use some renovation. The pool area was pretty but the pool itself could need to be cleaned more regularly. The pool was also... More

We booked late for this but it was well worth it. The buffet meal was delicious, especially the beef Stroganoff. A big thank you to all the staff that made this an excellent way to spend the evening. Great value.

If you are in search of peace with someone special, this is the place for you. Not only the rooms but the hotel area is also so private that it makes you feel like being @ bottom of the ocean. The pool is different, rooms have aroma which you prefer & restaurant faces breathtaking sea. Another add on with Tamarina... More
