Just returned from our 4th visit to Barbados and the 3rd time we have stayed at the Tamarind. We were welcomed back warmly by all the staff, many were the same faces we had seen on previous trips. Many guests also seem to return to the Tamarind time and time again which is always a good accolade. The staff were...

Tamarind is the perfect spot for a vacation in paradise. Great resort property, super clean, friendly, helpful staff, stellar views of the sea, awesome cuisine and cocktails, upscale resort property without the stuffiness of other platinum coast properties. I liked the fact that we felt comfortable in flip flops and T-shirts AND formal resort attire. The beach is awesome, super...

Beautiful sunsets, pristine water/reefs, great service on the best part of the island. Trips to and from Holetown on the yellow reggae buses are a must. See Arden at the bar for some delicious and unique cocktail creations. And go to the egg station for the best omelets by Ether.
