We had a lovely family holiday with out two year old. Huge spacious bedrooms, which was clean and modern. Wifi worked well through out the whole hotel. Free watersports which we enjoyed and swimming in the sea, with a coral reef where we saw some beautiful fish.The sea/hotel wall has been repaired and all the beach was accessible, I had been worried about this following other people's reviews. Food was lovely, we had a couple of evenings of buffet and the rest were a la carte evenings. As the hotel is part of the elegant hotel chain you can get the free water taxi between the hotels and dine in the sister hotels, there is also an Italian attached to the Tamarind, which was lovely food, and another adult hotel to the otherside. Pool wise I would say the Tamarind had the best pools in the chain, nice and big and deep! We thoroughly enjoyed our beautiful relaxing 10 night stay and would certainly look to return :-)
My wife and I just returned after a 1 week stay at this hotel. The view from across the pool is beautiful with waves crashing along the beach beyond. Our fellow guests were made up of British and American families and couples along with others, the overall vibe is calm and relaxing. The staff is great! always trying to help, smiling, (I know that customer service is difficult) and always cleaning up the property. Food is very important when we travel and all in all we were very pleased. Most of the meals are buffet style. There is a great selection of food that people will know from home as well as Bajan style dishes, which my wife and I enjoyed. very important, the food was prepared with care and tasty. I was going to give this review a 4, however there was 1 employee who raised the bar for us. The master breakfast cook who works the "cook to order" egg station at the morning buffet. Her name is Ether and she is a great brand ambassador for this hotel! Boiled, poached, or omelet, no problem. Guests naturally break into 2 lines around the buffet, and they end up in front of this marvelous woman. She keeps everyone moving as she pumps out order after order, all the time talking to everyone standing in front of her. I have on request of this hotel, please install an electric fan above this woman's station to cool her as she provides a great experience for the guests who crave fresh eggs. It was a good week, thank you.
Fabulous Not everything is perfect, but that’s why we can relax. Our room is comfortable and clean. The staff are very friendly, and also do a good job. Yes, there are a few things that could be better, but overall our experience atTamarind has been positive. Alecia at the pool bar - thank you for your kindness when I hurt my foot. Lisa - your first aid was first class. Troy you make an excellent pin-a colada - the dark rum makes for a fabulous taste. Alicia thank you for all your help at the concierge desk. LaSaunta you were absolutely fabulous in sorting out my dietary needs. The food has been exceptional. I could go on and mention every member of staff with whom we’ve had a positive experience, but it would be easier to mention those who have not given good service. Oh , wait, there aren’t any. Overall I would say that after a few very difficult years, Tamarind has come back and offers a lovely place to relax in the sun. We came here to celebrate our wedding anniversary and the staff at Tamarind have made it so special.
