Tamarind by Elegant Hotels is an excellent beachfront property in Barbados whose design makes the most of its lovely location amid tropical gardens beside a 750-foot-long stretch of white, sandy beach on the Platinum West Coast.

The contemporary hotel is part of the Elegant Hotels group and offers 104 stylish guest rooms located within Mediterranean style buildings, many accommodating families.  Rooms have vibrant Caribbean décor and high quality amenities, each with its own private balcony or patio overlooking the gardens or with spectacular views over the beach and ocean beyond. The hotel offers connecting Ocean View Junior Suites which are perfect for families. 

Tamarind has a variety of dining venues including the open-air Sugar Cane Room, the oceanfront 246 Bar & Restaurant and the casual Rilaks Deck lounge. Next door is the highly acclaimed Daphne’s Restaurant, where guests can enjoy Italian inspired cuisine in a beachside setting – as the fine dining venue is popular with guests and non residents alike, booking a table is definitely recommended, especially as it is not included in the hotel’s full board package. The hotel also runs a water taxi to take guests to visit the other Elegant Hotels of Barbados to use their facilities and to dine in their restaurants - find out more about the other hotels in the group.

Guests can also relax by one of the three swimming pools or on the crescent beach, where you can make use of the beach service to stay refreshed. Tamarind has a small and friendly spa with a relaxation pool, whose treatments and massages feature Caribbean elements.
Tamarind also offers a wide range of complimentary watersports including snorkeling, sailing, kayaking, windsurfing and waterskiing. Guests can also go on a number of excursions to discover more of Barbados.

Families are well-catered for at Tamarind with suites accommodating up to two adults and three children, restaurants offering healthy menus for children, and a complimentary children’s club. 

 


Our Opinion

Fresh and vibrant, Tamarind offers a perfect all-round Caribbean Holiday to both families and couples. For the couples and parents alike, there is an adult only pool located in a peaceful area next to the luxury spa, many sunbathing and relaxing areas, bars and good dining choices.
 
There is one of best kids clubs I have seen, with something to interest all ages both indoors and out, including what was planned to be a teens room, which in fact has had so many grown-ups visiting it has become an entertainment room for everyone, with many games such as pool, air-hockey, wii.
 
The location is perfect, beautiful West Coast beach, many water sports and if you can separate yourself from this hotel there are many great local restaurants and bars nearby. Being an Elegant hotel you can also choose to take the shuttle boat to one of the sister hotels to have a day elsewhere should you like – although most a quite happy to stay around Tamarind, as it has that kind of magnetic atmosphere.
 
I love the selection of room types here, as there is something to suit everyone, and all are recently renovated with a colourful modern décor throughout.
