What really impresses about this hotel is that everything is geared around the customer having a pleasant and relaxing stay. The service is great and unobtrusive, the food...

I had such a great time at Tamarind! I have already booked my second stay. I was so impressed with the service and the food selection at Breakfast. Normally, due to my food allergies, there is very little that I can eat at a resort especially at breakfast. At Tamarind this was not an issue at all! The selection included...

We have just returned from staying at the Tamarind hotel, & we really did not want to come home. It is truly paradise... peaceful, tranquil. Always something to surprise you, melon cubes in the morning, really cold towels to cool you down, & ice lollies in the afternoon.
