I have had a very enjoyable stay at the Tamarind Hotel for 1,5 years while I was working on Sint Maarten as an attorney-at-law. The staff at the Tamarind Hotel is first-class and very friendly. They are always willing to help you out when you have a problem. My room (studio #3) was tidy and had a beautiful view on...

It was a nice stay. Service very friendly. I loved the fact that you can stay in your room and enjoy it. But also go sit on your balcony and enjoy all the plants and tranquility that the hotel offers. Especially how they take care of their plants making it a lovely view and in the evening being able to...

It's about a 20-minute walk from the main shopping area (Front and Back Street) as well as restaurants so renting a car is advisable. There's also no restaurant on site but Chesterfield's is the closest thing...and the food is amazing at any time of day! Front desk staff are helpful and will sort out any issues you may have. The...

This place is charming and simple. Used to the luxury biggies like Marriott this place is different. Unfortunately the electricity was not working properly yet that's all in the game at St Maarten. Bed is simple and not the most comfortable. Room OK, WIFI should be available yet i did not find it nor used it. Staff is nice. Moderate...

We have spent 8 consecutive annual visits at the Tamarind. Most of the visits are for a month duration. We stay in a one bedroom apartment but they also have studio and two bedroom units. The grounds are like a tropical garden. The units are fully furnished and have full kitchens or kitchenettes. No fancy frills like dishwashers and ice...

The arrival at Hotel Tamarind truly felt like coming home. The beautiful garden surrounding the swimming pool gave an exotic first impression. Lizards dominated the narrow path that led to our appartment. From the balcony we could see Saint Barths and sometimes the sugarbirds would pay us a visit. We had an incredibly relaxed stay in a friendly atmosphere! Thanks...
