Fantastic place to stay

This was by far the only place we have stayed that had such friendly and hospitable staff. Everyone was very helpful and just seemed to want all guests to have a wonderful experience. The location was very good, you could take a local bus ,right outside the door which is an experience all foreigners should have. There are plenty of restaurents close by that you can walk to or take the bus.The breakfast buffet was very good . There was a wide variety of water sports and my husband was very pleased to have the use of a wind surfer. The only complaint we had was that most of the guests reserved their beach chairs before they went to breakfast and left them empty for hours and then we struggled to find one.

Exceptionally Great

Oh Barbados was absolutely wonderful. We stayed B&B, the property was absolutely beyond amazing. The staff was simply gorgeous. I can tell you the bars on both sides of the property was like heaven on earth especially at Happy Hour. The restaurant offered good meals and world class service. We will all be back again next year with the kids and grandkids. I have to say a huge thank you to Barnard, he is a lovely lad. You were nothing but amazing during orientation. Thanks for checking up on us and for all the wonderful information on where to go and the hotel. Your assistance with me husband who is disable was tremendous. You are a star, we are still talking about you. Thanks to the lovely girls and boys and to Nicholas for sorting out our issue. Keep up the good work on the property. See you lot soon. xxxx

We'll be back....

Just returned from an amazing 11 nights at the tamarind. Our day started with a great breakfast - a lovely Omelette from Ether. The choice of inclusive water sports was fab, of which we tried them all. The team here were so good and safety conscious. The pool area was just right and the snorkelling really good, including sting rays. We hired a car for the day and explored the mid/north of the island, including the wildlife park where the monkeys come in from outside for feeding. We had a great day on a catamaran where we swam with turtles and fish, with a great crew and food/drinks. The hotel staff, in the main, were friendly and our room lovely - some areas were 'tired', but still nice. We ate out in holetown, taxi or the reggie bus, where there's some lovely eating places. We weren't impressed with the hotel restaurant or daphne next door to the hotel; we really enjoyed meals at the beach house, ragamuffins and carizma. Such a good time, we're already planning a return next year.
