Timeshare trade/A great spot. Spent a week there in early April. Front rooms have outstanding ocean view. Underground parking/pool/BBQ's, cross the street you are at the beach. Excellent food and nightlife within walking distance.

Finding the right location and the right hotel is central to a good getaway. This hotel gives you easy access to a long stretch of beach as well as a variety of restaurants. Yet you're at the edge of town giving you some buffer from the crowds and easy access walking to town and driving to explore all the north...

Perfectly located rear the beach. Air conditioning in Room wasn't very good. Bathroom was slightly dirty. Staff was quiet but no issues. Hallway smelled like weed. Great game room/ movie rental place for people with kids.

Hi Alicia Thank you for taking the time to review your experience here at Tamarack Beach Resort.

The images are a bit misleading. We booked a "suite" and saw the pictures of the rooms with separate kitchen and rooms setup. But that's probably for the long term stay apartments but NOT for the 'hotel' room setup. View is nice, it is on a somewhat busy road that does have garbage trucks making noise in the morning. Overall...

I parked the car, and we walked wherever we needed to go; close to plenty of shops and quick food. The beach is just across the street - 200 steps away. The sunset from our room was breathtaking each evening. We will return again soon.
