“Good place for leisure trip”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

I stayed at tamarind during my honeymoon in Dec-13. The place is good and the staff are courteous... It is a calm place at a corner of the road and away from hustle n bustle... Its a bit far from the beaches and you need to either have a car or rent a bike to reach the beach as there is no public transport / auto available in the locality...

Breakfast spread is good.. Coming to the lunch / dinner, we din't find much choice being vegetarians.. the food tasted good, bit oily though..

Overall, the experience has been good and special mention to the front office staff for their service n response...

Dear Guest,
It is a real pleasure to know that you chose The Tamarind in Goa for your stay.
We now provide complimentary transport to the beach.Our guests, like yourselves,like to come back to the relatively quieter and calmer ambience here.
We have taken a note on your comments about vegetarian food .It is true we have many more non vegetarian dishes ,but since we are revamping our menu ,we will ensure more vegetarian dishes are added to it.
Our best regards as you start your new life

Great place to stay. Peaceful environment, cozy rooms, awesome food, good service, reasonable price.
All in all, a very good option for family and friends to spend quality time in GOA.

I stayed at the Tamarind from Dec 7 to Dec 10th 2013. The property is located at a convenient place, and is popular in around which helps in locating if you are lost (right opposite to St. Michaels church).
Few highlights:
Cute little clean swimming pool
Every room has a balcony (size varies)
Rooms, bathrooms are very clean and give you a very cozy feel
Food - We tried Indian to continental, equally good. Biriyani needs a special mention
Staff - Most of them are courteous.
It was our anniversary and they decorated the rooms really well - icing on the cake

Cons:
I dont have any complaints for the price I paid - 3K per night.

It was great experience, hotel staff was too good.Just one suggestion there should be some refferal discounts or value adds if some one provided it earlier.However if I will talk about my stay and comfort simply :

I loved it.

The owners have really spent all their creative juices to convert a old house into something playful and unique. You will find smart and creative touches all over the property.
The rooms are set around a swimming pool. The rooms itself are cozy and loaded with all kinds of creature comforts like large LCD, well stocked mini bar, daikin airconditioning. Etc. The bed was one of the best that i have experienced in properties of this caliber and we slept very well.

Now the negative, the bathroom though has kohler fittings is not that well finished or maintained. You will find mould and mildew at many places in the shower area. The rooms also have hotwater by means of a tiny geyser. This is pretty useless in cooler weather and the hot water is not enough to take a good shower. I would suggest the owners to consider fitting a solar hot water system or heatpump to provide a more relaible source of hot water.

we did not eat much here except for the included breakfast which was average. We did however try desserts from thier counter and the banofie pie was heavenly. So i assume they do good desserts as claimed in other reviews.

Location wise you certainly need to rent a scooty or a car if you want to head out to the beaches. It takes 10 mins to vagator beach and likewise to anjuna. They will rent you a scooty for 500 rs.a day Its cheaper to rent one from outside. ( we rented a car for 700 rs a day)

To sum it up i think this is certainly one of the better mainstream choices on the anjuna vagator curcuit and i would certainly stay here. Hopefully they will install a better hot water system by then.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms on the higher level they have high ceilings and appear more spacious. I would consi...

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your very generous compliments about our hotel decor.Our owners spend a lot of time and are quite passionate about it.
We now provide free transport to the beaches.About the Cotinga Cafe ,glad you enjoyed the food and the bakery products.
We were already changing to larger geysers ,really sorry it was not done earlier.
We assure you of ample hot water on your next visit .
There is a red sand like dust that follows your shoes everywhere in Goa.This is still not an excuse and we will be extra careful to ensure that everything is spic and span.
We do hope you will visit us again.
Regards

The hotel is not on the Anjuna beach but not far from it also. The hotel had their own scootys for rent, on which it takes 5-10 mins to reach Anjuna beach. Baga beach was another 10 mins. All in all a good location if one wants to stay in North Goa but not in the mad hustle bustle of Baga.

The rooms in the hotel were small. Therez a swimming pool in the center. Though not lavish, the hotel and the restaurant has been done up beautifully. The garden has some additional romantic seating options. All in all, the decor gives a very nice and cozy feel, which I liked.

We only had breakfasts in the hotel, which was good. I had one fish curry rice for lunch, which was also good. They have a nice bakery though, with some really delicious pastries.

When in Goa, you do not really stay inside the hotel too much. We were out in the morning and returned by evening/night. Overall, it was a good 2-3 days stay in the hotel.

Our stay at The Tamrind was of 4days which we didn't find adequate as we still had the hang of this place for the following 2days.
It was indeed a pleasurable stay in this themed property.
Nice and cute rooms to sute the Goan architecture,
Pleasant and always alert staff at your service,
And to add it to an experience "Awesome Food".
Absolutely no need to search outside food joint. U wll have all here. Food rates are well at par as a decent hotel in pune will have. Slightly expensive compared to other restaurants in goa. But every extra penny is worth the taste..
To sum it up I would say we had a great rejuvenation in "The Tamrind"
Suggestion Tip: Dear Tamrind please make some arrangement for covered car parking (not that the current arrangement is bad but I personally like to keep my vehicle covered or secured to my peace of mind..) :-)
