Having been in the tourism industry for many years, we are particularly “fussy about service” and were so pleasantly surprised to see staff with smiles on their faces and willing to do everything to make their guests feel welcome. Tamarin hotel is in dire need of a facelift, however, one seemed to overlook the desperate plea for maintenance when the...

This place is just old and dated, I was here for 1 night before I fly home and it just wasn't pleasant. Food gross, AC terrible, no water in my room. Cold beer was good can't complain there. After several calls regarding the water I went to see for myself what was going on, and nothing was happening. I had...

Had a pleasant week here in October. Fantastic location right opposite a very scenic public beach. Great pool, surf-themed bar, plentiful good food, spa and a very basic tennis court. Comfortable rooms with good air con. The Hotel has its own in-house Surf School though I did not see any waves higher than 2 feet the whole week. The staff...

Hello gbAndrew, Thank you for choosing Tamarin Hotel for your holidays and for writing a review of your stay. We're happy to read that you had a pleasant time with us, even though waves were not really high (due to weather conditions).

The hotel was full in July With people from La Réunion, but we managed to have a room for two nights. It was very simple, with no light in the bathroom... But fine.... staff was great, particularly a lady at the bar. Nice place for a family stay.
