Elegant venues sprinkle the gorgeous, platinum west coast of Barbados at this stunning resort on a prime 750-foot white-gold stretch of beach. 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.

Take a dip in one of three on-site swimming pools, fall into a spell with a relaxing massage at the resort's intimate spa, or try your hand at a variety of complimentary non-motorized water sports. Kids will adore the Flying Fish Kids' Club, which provides all the entertainment any child could ever ask for. Experience waterskiing, banana boating, pool volleyball, snorkeling, sailing, boogie boarding, kayaking, windsurfing, and paddle boarding in comfortable, temperate weather. Practice the long ball with a round of golf on handsomely-cropped greens at Royal Westmoreland or Apes Hill, two magnificent 18-hole championship golf courses.

Allow a friendly concierge to arrange amazing island adventures for you and your family, including catamaran cruises, rugged safari tours, labor-free shopping trips, and glass-bottomed boat rides. 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.

    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.

    Perfect Location

    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.
