Stayed here for our honeymoon after getting married on the south coast. After waiting for over an hour in reception for our room we found it to be amazing. Rooms were perfect. Food was delicious although the birds at breakfast were so annoying. They ruined the experience. They had some good events and there was enough entertainment. I definitely preferred...

First impressions were that the hotel was a bit tired and needed an update and clearly not the four seasons in terms of quality. However over time the hotel relaxed charm warmed to us and we felt the hotel simply mirrored the slightly chaotic charm of the Caribbean. The breakfast food was good and plenty of choice and quality. The...

Having had a great time the previous year at one of the Tamarind’s sister hotels, Turtle Beach, we were a little anxious as to whether Tamarind would match up, particularly for our son who had...
