Hotel is near the beach.. but it's too far from airport and stonetown.. staff's are like money..


Nice place. Stayed in room 18 on top of the beach; the closest we've ever slept to the ocean. It was lovely. If you want to chill and relax by a beautiful beach, this is the spot. The only things we did not love was that the shower water was salty and that the place is not that close to attractions on the island, so you have to rely on the hotel to help you with everything (which they do) at the price they are willing to give you (which is affordable, though not cheap).


cold shower :(


The place has so much potential but is unfortunately not well taken care of. It starts with the lack of attention to the rooms (cleanliness, awfull pillows, nylon blankets), the lack of maintenance of the outside equipment (broken deck chairs) and ends with the food that is less than average. It seems that the best times of that place are unfortunately over unless the management decides to do something about it to get it back into shape. It is good to create a relaxed atmosphere but there is a thin line bet


Ottima posizione veramente molto buono in tutti i sensi


The older man which is one of the owners was very helpfull and friendly. As he moved for a few days, there was another guy; not friendly, moody and we think corrupt. He wanted, that we give all our cash money to him, then he makes us a better price for our appartment. Does this makes a sence? The rest of the staff was very nice! And take care of the "Massai" at the beach, the can be aggressiv.


I had a very pleasant stay at Tamarind Beach Hotel, with a fantastic location and, most than everything, I had a very peaceful and relaxing time there. It´s clean and the staff is very helpful.


This Hotel hat gife a good feeling in a nice atmosphaere.


Isolated from the crowd of the city; great for me! I only wish I could have been handled a detailed bill upon checking out, or the opportunity to verify all my receipts and its total. Also, taxi pick-up from the airport is *available*, not included; not very clear on the Internet site.


Low key, nice place to stay. Awesome staff and great food. Beautiful beaches with offerings by the hotel for snorkeling and tours for an extra charge. Would recommend to others and go back.


They have excellent cooks and excellent laundry service. Bring your own strong coffee if you are a coffee drinker. Don't bother asking the staff about other tour in the island, they don't seem to know anything and have their own agenda. If you do take their tour, ask for detailed itinerary so that you won't get frustrated. This is a place to relax and expect nothing else.
