  • About this holiday

    A Caribbean Expressions holiday to Tamarind on the west coast of Barbados is an excellent choice for couples and families, representing very good value for money. The hotel has undergone renovation and refurbishment in the summer of 2010. The facilities are excellent for couples with its easy access to nearby restaurants and for families with its three swimming pools, water sports and magnificent stretch of beach.
    This youthful, modern resort is recommended by our Caribbean travel specialist, Katie Hill, to those looking for a relaxing, romantic break, or planning a honeymoon. Katie particularly enjoyed the secluded spa area, the complimentary water sports, and the individual touches, such as the swimming with turtles excursions.

    Our opinion

    Tamarind has a tropical and Mediterranean style combined with a great location alongside a superb sandy west coast beach.

    Hotel description

    Opening onto 750 feet of sandy beach, the Tamarind hotel occupies a prime location on the elegant West Coast of Barbados. Tamarind, a sister hotel to Colony Club, has 104 rooms and suites and offers a very wide range of excellent leisure facilities. Tamarind hotel has intimate areas with pools, courtyards and fountains. The building has a Mediterranean influence with its red-tiled roof, but its gardens of hibiscus and bougainvillaea opening onto the beach are unmistakeably Caribbean. A great advantage of Tamarind is the 750-foot stretch of beach, which enhances the feeling of space. A wide range of wining and dining is available with Tamarind's restaurants and two bars. 246 Restaurant and Bar offers open-air beachside dining with nightly entertainment, perhaps calypso or jazz.  Newly renovated spacious guest rooms and suites provide vibrant, modern decor and oversized balconies. An integral part of a Caribbean holiday must be the fun of the sea, and there are numerous opportunities for adults and children alike with the three swimming pools, fitness centre, full service spa, kids' club, family lounge and outstanding choice of complimentary water sports offered here at Tamarind. The Flying Fish Kids Club is open daily from 10am to 5pm for children aged 4 to 12 years and operated by fully trained,professional staff. It offers a wide range of fun-filled activities from beach games to arts and crafts.Barbados’ charming village of Holetown is not far from the hotel and has a range of superb restaurants.
