Have been to Barbados many times and always stay at one of the elegant hotels, this time choosing Tamarind. We booked fairly last minute for some much needed rest & relaxation. Our week at Tamarind was perfect. The staff are so friendly and welcoming in all areas of the hotel. The management took time to speak to guests individually to ensure everything was satisfactory and are genuinely interested in their guests. The service in the restaurant & bars was excellent as was the quality of the food. We particularly enjoyed the BBQ evening and the two vocalists-amazing. A fabulous week away and cannot wait to return.

Ok but needs some serious money spending on it .

Great trip to Barbados - wonderful Island and very friendly people . We had only booked bed and breakfast at the hotel and this turned out to be an excellent choice . The hotel is in a good position with loads of good restaurants only a short walk , 5 minute taxi or short public bus trip away ( bus ride an experience but hang on tight !!) . Our room ,which overlooked the sea and was almost right on the beach had wonderful views . The hotel however had almost no guests and the main restaurant on the only night we had dinner had 4 guests . No evening entertainment and little atmosphere . I suspect the situation was not helped by the fact that building works and major repairs to the sea wall ( which we had not been informed about prior to our trip ) were a negative factor and my guess is that some guests had been switched to one of the hotels in the group. The staff were great but the hotel overall appeared very tired and in need of some serious money being spent on it . We visited the other hotels in the group - all of which at face value seemed far more impressive than the Tamarind .

I did not actually stay in this hotel, but took my parents there for their Golden Wedding Anniversary as they had not been there for 10 years and before the huge refit of the hotel.What a stunning hotel, and that was just the reception area !!!! amazing pieces of art and sculptures and just a beautifully designed buildingWe checked out the ladies toilets and even they were pretty fab (and very clean and hygenic.We were booked into the 246 Restaurant which was positioned on their decking on the beach where you could hear the sea and the waves....beautiful esp on a balmy warm night ! The grounds are well it with amazing lights so it all feels very tranquil but not dark.The meal was expensive (!) but it was worth it - Dad and I had the most amazing Thai King Prawn Curry - beautifully and freshly cooked and soooooooo delicious.The service was good; I had to return my Banks as it was "off" but it got replaced quickly and efficiently.IF YOU WANT A SPECIAL NIGHT OUT, COME HERE as it is pretty expensive to eat there
