Fantastic beach front location
On arrival felt slightly disappointed as the hotel generally looked tired. We had a very warm Bajan welcome however and were upgraded to a junior suite. The room like the rest of the hotel could do with a lick of paint but this did not affect our stay as the location, pools, beach, breakfast (omeltte by the lovely Ether amazing) were second to none. Felt the price of drinks were high but seems to be Barbados has increased their prices considerably since our stay a couple of years ago.
Right on the best beach and we were upgraded to an ocean view suite!! Such a great way to start and end the day. Breakfast is included and Ether the omelette lady was the best!!! Not only does she make the best omelette she taught my son to make them too! We definitely missed her when we got home. Thank you to everyone who made our stay memorable!
Great location, friendly service
Just returned from a week at the Tamarind. Good clean hotel in a great beachside location. Service excellent and very friendly. Enjoyed the watersports. Would happily recommend so long as you are not looking for a super upmarket new hotel.
Good and bad
The rooms are dated. Old rugs, stained chairs. The amount of pools are nice. I like options. Some pools were for kids and others were for adults. The drinks were nice. My issue was that folks were smoking all over the hotel. In the rooms and at the pool area. I watched someone light a cigarette on their balcony. Then take it in their room. I spoke with management and they spoke with the guest. As soon as security left the guest threatened me and started smoking again. I had to switch hotels.
Relaxing family holiday
Stayed here in early May, as a couple with a six month old baby. Low season had just started so the hotel was quite quiet. This was fine for us, as we were just looking to unwind. Staff members were all kind and friendly. Only slight negative was the room was a bit dated. All in all, a nice place to stay. Good location.
