Customer Ratings & Reviews

My husband and I visited right before covid hit. We thought the staff was great, the food is AMAZING, and the grounds were very clean. It appeared they will be doing a Reno as they were digitally surveying one day we were there. Much better than the big names in all inclusive. And yes, Ether and her eggs are amazing.
Such a wonderfully relaxed holiday
We visited this mid-Feb to the end, just missing the pandemic shut-down! It was such a lovely relaxed holiday: the staff are so nice, friendly, all seemingly loving their jobs. Of special mention Ether the egg chef.
A tad disappointing
This hotel is very tired and is in need of a major renovation. Room was small, old furniture, not enough sockets, inefficient air con, but was very clean. Didn’t expect to have to book sunbeds at 7am - thought those days were over! Lunch was great, but had three evening meals there, which varied from mediocre to awful. The beach area has been eroded and is very narrow. Also lots of stones and a sharp drop into the sea. We specifically booked it as non-inclusive, but they are now in a transition to all inclusive, which is not going well. With the recent takeover by Marriott, the staff are worried about their jobs and this perhaps is why mainly the restaurant staff were very unhelpful and looked miserable. Good location with easy bus access to Holetown and some fab restaurants. The highlight was breakfast with the fabulous Ether running the egg bar - what a legend!
First time in Barbados
We booked with TUI, but it was the hotel, its staff and its location that made for an excellent holiday. Never having had an all inclusive holiday before and being our first time in Barbados we were not sure what to expect despite available reviews. The hotel has character and charm and so do the staff! Esther (the renowned egg lady) is rightly a legend and now an internet sensation. Once met and educated on omlette making never forgotten! Patrick is the man at the beach, while Christopher and Dione excell around the bars with Nibelle and Destiny among other names in an excellent staff team. The front desk were also great. Unseasonable high swells limited water spots but the glass bottom trip exceeded expectations. Sunny days, welcoming breezes, smart, clean rooms and food which was truly impressive. Don't miss a taste of the Reggae bus service. Listen to the whistling frogs. Beware of the birds! Many thanks for a fantastic stay and hoping the new ownership keeps the essential endemic elements of the Tamarind and its staff.
We had a garden suite with sea view. Large room with dressing area and bathroom. Bed very comfortable and big! Wifi good throughout. Staff excellent. Very friendly and happy. Very helpful, too. Grounds spacious and 3 pools meant there was always room for sun beds. Beach is quite small but room for sun beds. Didn’t use water sports but plenty there. There was a variety of food options and the food was on the whole good. Plenty of drinks to try on all inclusive package. The bar staff were great even when busy. Good choice at breakfast....Ether made great eggs! Good to be able to dine at Daphnes next door for more variety. Concierge organised golf for us very easily and reception answered all questions and booked taxis etc.
