My wife and I stayed here at the close of our charter to get our land legs back. Great fun, met some cool people and the bartender recommended a great reastaurant in the east end. Will definitely stay here again.

We needed somewhere to stay for one night, as we were travelling on to Virgin Gorda the next day. This hotel is just a short drive from the airport, and after a particular gruelling journey with a missed connection, long delays and a 'couldn't car less' attitude by the local airline staff, all we wanted was a drink and bed....

This resort is on the North side of the island in an area called Josiah’s Bay. It is about a mile walk from the bay, which is very pretty. The benefits end there. Upon arrival at the resort, after reservations were made via email months before arrival and telephone conversations to confirm only two weeks prior to arrival, we were...

Horrible place! I am beyond offended by the attitude and rottenness of this place that pretends to offer a service. It is the kind of place where the taxi driver knows it's reputation and says here is my number in case you change your plans (overnight!). Never had seen a cockroach that large before, never had felt that I should...

We picked Tamarind for a very short stay before catching ferry to Virgin Gorda... The room was simple but clean and the staff could not have been nicer _ from letting us check in super late to ensuring we had a great cocktail upon our arrival. Will definitely be back.

We stayed at the Tamarind over New Year 2011-2012 in a two room suite, and were not very impressed. A very small en suite facility which we could hardly turn round in, and a very poor standard of room cleaning (this is the first hotel in 30 years of foreign travel where we left no tip for the cleaning staff),...

The folks at Tamarind are the kindest and most welcoming people I have ever met. While wearing from a long long travel trip they welcomed me in with open arms and treated me like family.

We stayed here one night after completing a 7 day cruise of the islands, since the charter was over too late to catch flights back to San Juan. The Club is run by an ex-pat US family. The facility itself is a bit frayed at the edges. 'Night of the Iguana' is a bit harsh, but there's a sense that...

Tamarind Club is a great place to ease right into island time and relax. It is very laid back and casual. After a long day of travel, it was nice to be told that they would take care of the formalities in a bit and to come and have a welcome drink. The bartenders were all great and if you...
