Customers' Reviews

  • Lovely holiday once again but we thought the service was not quite as good as last year especially at breakfast. They also no longer enforce their sun bed policy, which means people are now out at 7 reserving beds and by lunch time there are no spare beds or umbrellas.
    Overall rating: 4/5 • Product rating: +
  • Really impressed with the hotel we will definitely return there. Great service, gorgeous room we had an amazing time, One small point, they do advertise a vegetarian menu but it is quite limited.
    Overall rating: 5/5 • Product rating: ++
  • Went there for our honeymoon and absolutely loved it! Food was fantastic on every day of our stay there. The rooms were lovely and beds very comfy. Spent most of the time in the sea which is great for swimming and a bit of snorkelling.Used the spa for a massage once which was very relaxing. We will definitely love to go back to Tamarind in the near future...
