Artfully blending European and Mediterranean characteristics with the magic of the Caribbean, Tamarind is vibrant in its colorful assortment of courtyards tucked away in secluded dens found throughout the resort. Colonnaded buildings with cherry-red tile roofs are faintly visible from crannies in the beautiful emerald greenery.

Visit St. Nicholas Abbey, one of the three remaining Jacobean mansions in the Western Hemisphere, or take a solar-powered electric tram and enjoy spectacular views of sparkling pools, hanging stalactites, and gorgeous limestone caves.

Satiate your appetite at Sugar Cane Room for a fantastic, complimentary full breakfast buffet including waffle and egg stations prepared just how you like it. Eat your fill with an assortment of breads, muffins, and pastries, as well as more traditional breakfast items and local Bajan favorites like flying fish, fried plantains, and pumpkin and corn fritters. Rilaks Deck is another delightful option. This South Beach Miami-inspired outdoor lounge serves light snacks and cocktails in a festive ambiance. Music genres like jazz, soul, and R&B add a Caribbean flair that gives this pleasant hangout vitality and life.

Every room provides easy access to on-site recreational activities and state-of-the-art amenities including spacious bathrooms, a mini-fridge, and spectacular ocean-view balconies.

The Birthday Suprise
BONNIE B.

I took my daughter to Barbados for her 21st birthday to swim with turtles. She selected the Tararind ..we pulled up and we both gasped the pictures do not due it justice. From the front you are drawn right thru to the water, it is very impressive. Each view even inside the hotel is impressive. The staff is outstanding housekeeping exceptional there are 3 pools to choose from. The hotel has an open feel always clean as well as the grounds. The food is amazing we selected dishes outside of norm and we were always surprised one more delicious then the other. I would definitely recommend this hotel everyone in the hotel made us feel like we were home. This was one of the best holidays ever .... as I was reminded when I would go to do something and one of the staff was helping me. :) Truly an amazing hotel I appreciate all they did for us . The management and staff sent my daughter a dessert with a decorated plate and wine bottle to our room. I did not even ask them to do that. That shows how they feel about their guests ... your their family for your stay.

Tamarind Cove Hotel is always clean, you will not have a hard time finding a staff member, and they always are willing to help, or find out if everything is ok, or if they can do something to make your day enjoyable.

Our 7th year running at Tamarind and it just gets better. The staff are friendly attentive and charming. Right on the beach a charming Bajan style Hotel. We will never stay anywhere else. Superb rooms spacious with excellent housekeeping and quiet with lovely garden and sea view rooms. 3 Pools only a 100 or so rooms so beats the large Hotels. Near to Holetown so well situated. Lovely Breakfast and Bar food and charming Restaurant next to the sea/sand. I must mention the staff who absolutely make this Hotel, from Paul Worrell Guest liaisons, Neil Weekes reservations, Arden, Wayne, William ,Ether, Mark C, Kernel Troy, Miss Dionne, and many more who’s names escape me. A huge thank you see you next year 😘

Friendly and Attentive

We were offered to switch to Tamarind, after arriving at Treasure Beach next door and finding a contruction project blocking the beach view. The front desk was accomodating getting us quickly checked in and upgraded our view because it was our anniversary! The beach is not very wide from the pool area to the water's edge, but that seems to be the general appearance of most of the Barbados beaches. Chairs were plentiful, with no need to reserve early. Most of the beach activities were included (snorkeling, hobie cat,, banana boat, kayak, paddle board, etc). The room had nice extras, including a large umbrella in the closet, which thankfully we did not need. We did not take the free water taxi to the other Elegant properties, because we were happy where we were. Though, I did notice that there were more people getting off the taxi to visit Tamarind, than there were leaving to go somewhere wlse....

Terrific Tamarind Hotel

We stayed here for 10 days in June 2018. Arrived after a nine hour flight from UK and taxi transfer. First offering while booking in was a lovely cool cloth and a refreshing drink.We were made to feel so welcome from the moment we arrived. In the normal Caribbean manner the hotel is understated and relaxed.. We were shown our room, a Junior Suite in the 2nd floor.The view over the pool directly to the sea.it was amazing. The room (311) was lovely and spacious and well appointed. The hairdryer in the room went wrong I was loaned another one immediately until they could fix after our departure. The staff were fabulous so friendly and nothing is too much trouble and the hotel has a lovely family feel. Each day we had breakfast where there was plenty to choose from or you could have one of Ether's omelettes’ which were amazing Ether is happy to give you a lesson as she cooks and make you laugh while you are waiting. She is a real asset to the team. Make sure you meet her but you will probably hear her first she is a joy. . There are plenty of water sports to try and there is a water taxi that goes to the other Elegant hotels in the coast.You are able to visit these hotesl as part of your booking. There is a bus stop just outside the hotel that will take you to Bridgetown or hole town and is 4$ wherever you go. We loved it so much we are already planning our return for some time in the future. Enjoy I am sure you wil

From the time we arrived to the time we left, it's been a super week. The service received by all staff was as friendly and helpful throughout. The room facilities were more then we expected with his and her sinks and shower rooms. A very comfy bed, mini fridge, and tea making facilities. Biscuits would have been nice but I think the top of bottled water on the beach and in the room was well received. Daily clean and evening knock too. Having a ocean view with a balcony sealed it on days when you just felt like sitting from above and taking in the lovely view. Beach crew were great. The location to other towns hotels and places was excellent some within walking distance and others by bus or car nearby.
