    Nice location on the beach. Good that watersports were included as well as access to the other hotels via the water taxi. The food was good but the menus could have had more choices. Surprised that there was no smoking allowed on balconies, but accept this is probably the same policy as all hotels.

    This was our 3rd visit to the Tamarind. The location is fantastic and the staff are all very polite and great fun. Unfortunately the hotel is moving to All Inclusive which will probably put us off returning there as we love dining at all the amazing restaurants in the area

    Hotel is right on beach and they provided lots of nice touches like cooling towels, ice-creams during the day and a cocktail for Father’s Day. Was the best value hotel on this stretch od beach at this time of year although it is a little old but everything is well maintained.
