The beach and pool are really nice at Tamarind, and we were fortunate to have new owners of the Deep End bar/restaurant. But listing this as only one star below the Buccaneer is a stretch. The rooms are spare, lots of small things broken and doors falling apart, the walls and floors/ceilings paper-thin. We were up several nights because we had kids staying above us and heard every step until 2am. If you stay in the room closest to the bar, be prepared to be up til last call. The only swimming off the beach is via a narrow exit along the breakwater, great for snorkeling but no good for small kids. The food at the Deep End is good, but service is hit or miss. All said, we had a great stay in St. Croix and many good days at Tamarind Reef, but if you're looking for quality, spend a bit more and stay at the Buccaneer as it's worlds apart.
