Amazing staff, amazing location

Among the friendliest group I have ever met, more than helpful and the Watersports are great. word of caution with Barbados is the beaches are public so you will get a few "salesmen" wandering through selling jewelry or foot rubs.

This place is amazing

My partner and I have just came back from a two week stay here and we can honestly say from start to finish this hotel went above and beyond to make our stay amazing in every way. Olivia the manager was so accommodating in every way, friendly and we was so sorry that we couldn't touch base on our final day to stress what a great job she is doing. Upon arrival we was greeted with a rum punch and cold flannel. We was checked in immediately and shown to our room 303. Great view of the ocean and pool. Inside was perfect in every way, clean, modern and very spacious. The cleaner Velma was so lovely in every way and very accommodating. We was full board and the food was excellent every day with ample of choice to suit all. Breakfast was delicious, everything and more was offered. Granola bites yummy and fresh fruit plentiful. Omelettes by the very much loved Ether, something that she is so proud off. Waitresses are so lovely and a memory that I will take with me is of a night they danced with us all to their song of The Boat Song by red plastic bag (so funny and a great night) for all guests. The evening 3 course meal was wonderfully presented, loads of choice. Steaks, fish, chicken, all a la carte. Every single member of staff at this hotel were so friendly and each and everyone made our holiday the best. The beach is superb and wonderful water sports available included in the price. Anything extra, Rod is the man to go too, very fair man. We swam with the turtles and he took loads of underwater film and emailed free of charge the same day. The complimentary water taxi that you can visit all of the other elegant hotels is a must, and again the 2 guys on the boat are excellent. The 2 pools plus the spa pool are brilliant. You never have trouble with sunbeds around the pool/beach. This hotel is situated in such a lovely area on Paynes Bay. This is our third visit to Barbados and this hotel by far is the very best. Hotel internet is v.good even on the beach at no extra charge.

Love this place!

Just back from our second visit to the Tamarind and already planning our third. This is a lovely, relaxed, welcoming family hotel with wonderful food. Our children (5 and 8) loved the kids club, asking to go in for a couple of hours every day which is a first for us! Pam and Linda are some of the lovely ladies who run the kids club and this really added to our holiday as we knew the children had a fun cool place to go in the heat of the day or whenever they wanted to just chill out with their friends and be without us for a bit! So for a couple of hours every day we got to relax as a couple and enjoy some banks beers by the pool.

Wedding weekend

Etha was a fantastic staple of the breakfast crew. An omelet a day keeps the Doctor away!!! Miles was an exceptional asset as the "Big Mable" driver. Thanks to the entire staff of very professional individuals.

Elegant resort

My husband and I stayed here in February for 8 days. I have to say Barbados is my favourite Caribbean island . Friendly and fun . This resort was in an excellent spot. The concierge service was excellent . The reception staff efficient the bar staff very friendly. The serving staff also excellent. We stayed on a half board basis and found the food to be of an excellent standard . The evening meal was of a good restaurant standard . Pool areas were clean and the beach was lovely . It wasn't clear where to go in the sea and some areas were quite stony which is a shame as on previous visits to Barbados I hadn't found this. But once I discovered the better walk in to the sea my enjoyment was greatly enhanced . Like most Caribbean resorts they need constant updating ,weathering from the sun does cause resorts to look a little dated. However this resort had a timeless elegance which I rather liked.
