10 days in room 330 by Rilax Pool. The room was a refurbished one day and kept extremely clean throughout our time by housekeeping. The hotel is well maintained and clean throughout but we can see the other comments that some rooms back onto the near by road, which would be noisy and some common parts could do with further refurbishment.
The food, ranging from breakfast, pool meals and the top end 246 Restaurant was all of a very high standard. The high point being the Christmas turkey, which was really very good. Do be aware/ask about prices of any buffet as it can be high.
Our children, 8 and 6, had a lovely, safe time and thoroughly enjoyed the Flying Fish Kids Club.
The staff are exemplary as many other comments have noted.
We would recommend and happily return.

Just returned from a Xmas break at the Tamarind. The staff really made this holiday fabulous, our particular favourites were Andrea and Keimar but many others were great fun and very friendly. The hotel itself is in a great location with the beach practically on the doorstep. The Watersports were greatly enjoyed by 2 teenage boys. The only downside was our suite which looked a bit tired, in particular the bathroom. We also requested late check out when the hotel was booked weeks ago, but was told that this was not a guaranteed option, in the end the hotel was full and we had to check out at noon and wait a few hours for our pick up for the airport. Great food and great weather. The nightly entertainment was also very enjoyable. Many thanks - The Rae Party

We stayed at the resort for a week in late October 2014. This was our second visit to the resort and we are already looking forward to our next visit. The resort itself is on a great beach with lots of areas for swimming in the ocean. Can also take long walks in either direction and explore the coastline. Our room itself was spacious and the view from the balcony was wonderful, overlooking the ocean. What a great sight to wake up to each morning!

The staff at the resort are outstanding. Within 24 hours of our arrival, the restaurant staff knew our names and our room number. We are fans of the local cuisine and discovered that we could special order fish cakes each morning for breakfast - what a treat and thanks to the staff for taking care of that each morning. Hotel management were also great, knew our names, knew we were returning guests. The front desk staff also took care of numerous dinner reservations for us which allowed us to spend as much time as possible on the beach instead of making our own reservations.

The water sports are included at the resort and we took advantage of the wide array of things to do. Really enjoyed going out in the small catamaran - went out several times in the afternoons - great view of the coast from the water.

The food at the restaurants is excellent and the menu contains something for everyone. Bar service was also great. Enjoyed happy hour at the end of the day while watching the sun set from the beach.

We had a great vacation at the resort and will definitely stay there for our next vacation in Barbados. Thanks to the Tamarind staff for welcoming us back and ensuring that our vacation was relaxing and memorable.

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean view room - the view is well worth it.

Great staff !! Just great in every way !!
Breakfast was always a pleasure with a wide selection of choices and the worst egg and omelette maker in Barbados ETHER !!
I would personally like to thank all the bar and food staff for always smiling and making the best cocktails on the island !!
Hardon !Josef !mark ! And Mr Chelsea !! And all the bar staff are just class and I can't wait to return for the banter again next year !!
I would like to thank Mr a grant for a great stay and it was a pleasure to meet him and listen to his exciting plans for the future !!
He was always around and available and hosted a great cocktail party ..
The main reason for our return to tamarind was the way we were treated and looked after last year from the wonderful ANTONIA ....
She is what every hotel needs .. Friendly caring professional and always on hand for your every needs ..
I wish her all the success in the world and can't wait for the exciting news regards a brother or sister for the her little one ...

Ok for the slightly negative bits which I raised with management etc !!
Like bathrooms and updating certain things around the hotel !!
I was pleased and reassured that all was being taken care off and that refurbishment was currently underway throughout the hotel ..

For anyone wanting a great break in Barbados my only recommendation is the tamarind !

Keep up the hard work everyone and myself and my family cannot wait to return again next year !!!!!

Thank you all Mr campion and family .
