Tamarind just gets better. Each year, there are a few niggles, but the great thing about the management is that they listen to them and improve year on year. This was our 3rd visit to Tamarind and 9th Barbados trip and we're already looking at booking again next year. Our room this time was just amazing. Sea view, very spacious,...

Six friends and I booked 4 rooms at the Tamarind Cove Hotel to serve as "home base" while immersing ourselves in the sights, sounds, and activities that is Barbados during Crop Over. Prior to arriving we already had planned to be away from the hotel for most of the days, and well into the nights, so imagine our surprise and...

For once my entire family (me, hubby, and daughters 10, 6 and 3) are all in agreement! This was universally agreed upon as the best ever family holiday. Excellent personal service, clean, safe, friendly, amazing facilities (watersports, kids club, restaurants etc). I just can't fault it. We stayed for 2 weeks and we left promising ourselves that we'd return soon....

Wow, first off I must say this trip was simply amazing. I had a beautiful 6 day stay at the Tamarind Hotel for Barbados Crop Over festival. The staff was very pleasant, informative and helpful. Me and my friend stayed in a suite with a balcony that had the ocean view. Very clean room, nice and chilled seeing how it...

We have recently returned from our stay at the fabulous Tamarind hotel in Barbados. Being July there was a bit of rain most days but in general the weather was amazing.

We had a fantastic stay at the Tamarind. Unlike previous reviewers, our room including the bathroom was very nicely appointed and we didn't notice any tiredness around the resort . The hotel is situated on a lovely stretch of beach, on a calm sea with very good snorkelling in front of the hotel - lovely assortment of tropical fish, eels...

Enjoyed our 1 week stay here. Food was good. Staff were friendly and accommodating. The reef is literally on your doorstep at the beach front and I saw my first wild turtle the first time I went snorkelling. Only has one small-ish pool on our side of the hotel which got deep quickly hence not brilliant for little children but...
