Having been in the tourism industry for many years, we are particularly “fussy about service” and were so pleasantly surprised to see staff with smiles on their faces and willing to do everything to make their guests feel welcome. Tamarin hotel is in dire need of a facelift, however, one seemed to overlook the desperate plea for maintenance when the...

After several calls regarding the water I went to see for myself what was going on, and nothing was happening. I had...

Had a pleasant week here in October. Fantastic location right opposite a very scenic public beach. Great pool, surf-themed bar, plentiful good food, spa and a very basic tennis court. Comfortable rooms with good air con. The Hotel has its own in-house Surf School though I did not see any waves higher than 2 feet the whole week. The staff...

The hotel was full in July With people from La Réunion, but we managed to have a room for two nights. It was very simple, with no light in the bathroom... But fine.... staff was great, particularly a lady at the bar. Nice place for a family stay.

Been there for the day package. First impression: hotel looks like a bungalow, old dated furniture - not modern at all. Was given welcoming cocktail on arrival. Baggage boy didn't bother to take our bag. Pool looked clean on the surface but there was accumulated dirt at the bottom, which only showed when diving. Lunch service at restaurant was good,...
