Traveler: From Chicago Illinois.
We recently just returned from Tortola BVI where we stayed at the Tamarind Club, its not a big Hotel only 9 rooms which are as far as Im concerned all poolside.
We arrived late in the evening so we were greeted by our bartender and we were directed to our rooms..
In the morning as we opened our doors a banana tree is right outside our room and every room faces a very large fresh water pool. Tamarind is located on the east end of Tortola which by the way if you've not done Island travel prepare for mountanous terrain and a fun ride to your destination!
Nestled on some hills it is quaintly hidden from view with local shrubbery and trees, the morning sound of palm trees, roosters and peacocks in the distance brings nothing but tranquilty to your soul. (recently been through several stomach surgical procedures this is just what I needed)
Cindy the owner and her crew which includes her two kids go above and beyond to make you feel right at home and this is just what I needed. Please note that this is not a five star resort..you help your self to the morning continental set-up and if you need something just ask for it.....stop being in such a hurry...
The philosphy here is forget normal life and the every day hassle of our hectic and crazy work and lifestyles you have arrived in paradise and Island life. The meals take a bit longer to cook than other places... BUT THIS IS OKAY because it is worth the wait everything is FRESH and belive me each bit of every meal that we had was FOODGASMIC!!!
Joshias Bay : the nearest beach to Tamrind is about a 15min walk down a hillside road as you walk down the hills you hear peacocks pass horses and several local beatiful homes that sit above the hills above you...Joshias Bay/Beach is beautiful..
Sunday at the Tamrind Club: after spending time at the island everyone that we met would tell us see you Sunday...well it turns out that Brunch at Tamarind is well known through out the islands by locals and other tourist who show up from other hotels because off the buzz through out the island.. vanilla/rum French toast melted in my mouth!! mmmmm loved it...
I would like to Thank Cindy, Catie, Clint and Eric for their hospitality, and please know that I will be back again. I am glad to have chosen your place to visit and to have the opportunity to have met you...oh yes Love my birthday cake thank you for surprising me with an awesome birthday cake !
Keep up the great work!!
