We had a week at the Tamarind which we thoroughly enjoyed.
The room was a good size and well air conditioned, the facilities, especially all the free water sports were excellent and the bars and restaurant were also good. Best of all though were the staff who were charming and couldn't do enough to help.
The hotel is situated on a very picturesque clean, sandy beach although if I was being really picky I would say that I would have preferred a wider stretch of sand as I felt a little confined - but the whole of the west coast of Barbados is like that.
A couple of other tiny points which I raised with the hotel -- our bed was curiously short. I am just under 6 feet and I only just fitted into the bed. It made me wonder whether they had it the wrong way round as it felt wider than it was long. The other thing is that the wireless internet, although complimentary throughout the hotel, can be a bit erratic and sometimes slow.
I know what other reviewers mean when the say the hotel is looking a little tired but think that perhaps they mean that it is a little old fashioned. It is certainly not trendy or boutiquey, tending more to a rustic look, which was fine by us. Overall then, a great holiday.More
