We stayed at Tamarind Reef Resort for 4 days and 3 nights. The location was beautiful and the staff was great. The water sports at the hotel were great, we did Kayaking, Paddle Boarding and Snorkeling. The reef off the hotel has beautiful fish and apparently turtles (which we didn’t get to see this trip). There is also an island kayaking distance from the hotel that can only be reached by boat/kayak that is interesting to explore. The hotel is about a $12 taxi ride from the main city Christiansted. Many of the shops and restaurants are closed on Sunday so plan accordingly. Unfortunately we weren’t able to make it to the Bombay Club, but heard good things about it.
Every room has a beautiful ocean view with a balcony or patio. They provided Aveda bath products which were nice. The room was very spacious, but it was quite outdated with a couple of fixes needed to the fridge (rusty and bottom was loose) and screen door (unopenable). Although the rest of the resort was well maintained, the rooms could have been cleaner. The bathroom door got stuck every time it was closed and the bathroom window didn’t open either. The issues with the room were minor since we didn’t spend much time in there, but would have been nice to have working.
