This hotel was everything we had hoped for. The staff were so friendly & efficient. The breakfast was excellent, as were the pools & bar areas. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending this hotel to others. No criticisms at all.

My wife and I stayed here for 10 days in a pool view room. It was actually both a pool view and sea view from the back of the hotel so great sunsets and morning views (Rm 241). We only stayed B&B which I think is best as there are so many local restaurants, although similar price to hotel. We...

This was a £4,500, one-week holiday for two (including flights) and we were aware that for the same price we could have had three weeks in Sri Lankan luxury (our alternative for my birthday). Happily, the Tamarind - and the island - lived up to promises. Our room, 222, was large, fabulous bed and came with its own little bird...

This was our first trip to Barbados and we were recommended the West coast and chose The Tamarind because of good reviews and reasonable price compared to some other hotels. We loved it! Our room was spacious, with lovely balcony overlooking the beach. Bed super comfy and very quiet. We stayed on B&B basis and breakfast was really good, with...

This was our second visit to this wonderfully managed hotel. We recommended to friends who came along with us. The hotel is situated on a long stretch of beautiful beach and you can walk right into Holetown along it, past Sandy Lane hotel for a bit of star spotting! Every meal we had in the hotel was first class with...

Quite possibly one of the older hotels on the West Coast but since my last visit in 2015 a lot of work has been undertaken to refurbish the common parts and bedrooms which was then looking rather tired and worn. Food and drinks rather on the expensive side but then the current exchange rates do not help. Two good pools...

The Tamarind is located in Paynes Bay, St. James on the west side of the island and has gorgeous beaches. It's a low-rise, compact hotel, so getting back to the rooms, wherever you were on the premise, is easy. Technically, it is a 4* hotel, but the quality of beaches, excellent service, and amenities such as the water-sports activities (included)...

I've recently returned from a weeks stay at this hotel and 4* it is. It's a good hotel in a great location. The rooms are adequately furnished, although some minor updates would make a difference, that said they were clean and more than comfortable. My only niggle was we could hear the road noise from our room (318), but good...

If you're going to Barbados, or even if you weren't , the Tamarind Cove will delight you. The staff are just the friendliest and most helpful we can remember . This is a relatively small hotel, just gorgeous, with free water taxis to sister hotels along the coast. There is a fabulous beach with Eddie the reflexologist on hand to...
