Holiday of a lifetime

Excellent hotel with excellent staff, nothing was too much trouble. Food was amazing especially Ether's Eggcellent omelettes! Other staff deserving special mention - Melissa, Olivia and Merica and Marvin.

A slice of paradise

We came to Barbados from Antigua where our experience had not been as we had hoped. What a pleasure the Tamarind is to stay in. We were put in a first floor room just a stones throw away from the beautiful beach. This hotel has three pools and a massive beach front location. The water sports were included in the bed and breakfast rate and were based in front of the hotel. There was a water taxi which stopped at all the hotels. What a lovely way to travel to the town. The breakfast lunch and dinners we had at the hotel were all rally good. They very kindly cooked one of the barracuda we caught for our dinner one night and it was truly delicious. We had a plumbing problem in our first room. We were very impressed with the way they quickly dealt with it and quickly moved us as the problem could not be resolved. I would have no hesitation in recommending this Hotel

Amazing, amazing, amazing!

Stayed here for a second time as a couple this year after having got engaged here two years ago. Still as great as before. Food was fantastic and great value as we stayed on a Full Board basis. Staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble, and rooms are clean and comfortable. The complimentary water sports through the hotel's beach hut make for entertaining daytime activities, and the adults only pool/spa is perfect for if you'd prefer some down time. Thank you to all the staff for making us feel so welcome.

Fantastic Hotel

I had the pleasure of staying at the Tamarind for 1 week with my wife recently and it was truly fantastic.From the moment you arrive until the moment you leave the staff are fantastic. From those tending the gardens to those in the breakfast room to those running and working the bars, just so cheerful and helpful. To name a few Mark, Ray, Tyrone, Paul and Hubert the driver thank you and all the staff for making our stay so great.The facilities, location, rooms and food are also first class and we will definitely be back next year.Thank you.

Simply amazing!

Just returned from 11 days staying at Tamarind celebrating graduating university and my goodness what a way to finish! Simply beautiful place not just the hotel but the staff can not do enough for you! Mark, Lee, Raymond, Joseph, Ether, Olivia... the list just goes on! Thank you to everyone for making our stay perfect. The breakfast buffet in the morning is simply delightful and everyone's reviews of Ether lived up to our expectations...she seriously is the best at omelettes :) We stayed in room 101 (3 Adults) which was amazing the view of the ocean right on our doorstep was pure bliss. The extra bed was the best we have ever had - we were expecting a put up sofa bed but we actually got a proper single bed which was fantastic! The pillows were really hard after the first night and we all had a sore neck but we spoke to reception and they found 4 feather pillows for us which was amazing! Literally there is too many good things to say in one review, we have absolutely nothing bad to say! Every little detail is covered from the welcome rum punch and cold flannel to the turn down service with bottles of water each night and complimentary fruit and ice cream brought to you around the pool.. oh and we can't forget the cocktail party on a Wednesday! We absolutely loved our stay and 110% will be back!
