We visited Barbados in nov 2012 and stayed at this brilliant resort. We travelled with our son 23 yr old and our niece in her late 20's . The resort offered fantastic facilities, good water sports, and lovely staff. The manageress allocated to us was antonia, a lovely character, very helpful and nothing was to much to ask of her. Food was excellent, our only complaint was that no matter how many times we told the waiters not to chill the red wine, they simply kept on serving red wine chilled, which temperatures are far too cold to enjoy red wine. As one would expect wine is quite expensive overall.

We attended a destination wedding over a long weekend and we had a great time. Our room had an ocean view and a small patio at the ground level and we really enjoyed sitting there. The staff was generally very helpful, and the food at the restaurant good, and the breakfast buffet was excellent. They also have free water activities like sailing and paddle boarding. All in all we really enjoyed our stay.

There are also a few other restaurants a cheap cab ride away.

The one fault was the maintenance crew which failed to properly fix our toilet during our stay, but it wasn't that big a deal.

We went to the Tamarind to celebrate my 50th birthday and it totally exceeded our expectations. We had an Ocean view room on the 3rd floor and there was a birthday cake and wine & a birthday card all there on our arrival -nice touch! The beaches are just beautiful and you really aren't pestered by sellers, they are all friendly and polite. The food at the hotel was amazing, lobsters, steaks, jumbo shrimp everything you could wish for. Breakfast was good too, we went half board and just ate two meals a day we were so full. All the staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We also enjoyed meeting the Managers of various departments at the weekly cocktail party by the pool. Loved Happy Hour, great cocktails Arden! It was fairly quiet while we were there but that suited us, we enjoyed some class entertainment in the evening (great sax player) while we ate our meal looking at the ocean. We swam with the turtles and went with Roddy (big hat, gold tooth) on his boat who totally looked after me as I was a little nervous. He even emails photos of the trip to you all included in the price and came looking for us when my partner wrote his email down wrongly. Also Angie on the beach for T-shirts & sarongs, nice lady. Paul on the beach will take you anywhere you want to go on the island in his taxi, you must see the Atlantic side, its another world. Don't miss Oistins, a street fayre where locals mix with tourists, great music, food and drink. All credit to Kim the hotel manager who has really pulled it together with the help of her fantastic staff and made the Tamarind a wonderful place to stay, we hope to return soon.

Room Tip: An ocean view is nice.

The kids club, water sports and waiting staff are excellent; very open, friendly and willing to go the extra mile to ensure you enjoy your stay. I would say that the kids club would suit children up to the age of 10. Breakfast is great - a good variety of fruits, pastries, cooked breakfasts and eggs/ omelettes cooked to order. I agree with some other reviewers that parts of the hotel (eg the decking and hammocks) are looking tired and could do with updating. The best thing about the hotel is that the people are fantastic. I hope that Elegant Hotels keeps hold of as many of the staff as they can. We (a family of 4 with kids aged 5 and 7) are hoping to go back for our third visit next year. I don't see a reason to try anywhere else (and I am fussy).

Our holiday at this hotel, from may 17 until may 28, was in one word "excellent". The hotel is situated at the westside from the isle, ensuring beautiful sunsets. The room we had was excellent with all facilities you can think of, including a bottle of water and a spread bed, when going to bed.
The staff has been in all occasions friendly and very helpful. Getting taxi's, helping to figure out what to do at night or just to find out if we are satisfied.

Although the hotel is not small, we never had the feeling we were one of the crowd. After a number of days, you become a guest with a name...

The beach is not very wide in front of the hotel, but big enough. Be sure to take some swimshoes with you. Some places in front of the hotel are a bit rocky. If you like to watch turtles etc be sure to arrange a turtle trip with Rod(erick) and Tony. They walk around the beach, where also the sailboats are located. Same value as the catamaran trips from bridgetown but cheaper and less crowded.

If you can, do the romantic dinner at the beach....

BTW: if you want to choose either The House or the Tamarind (same owner), go for the Tamarind.

Room Tip: for real ocean view do not go for ground floor.
