Inn at Tamarind Court
Ranked #5 of 5 Cruz Bay B&B and Inns
Reviewed 1 May 2014

Check in was with a very rude lady who's first question was: Last name please, without once making us feel welcome. When asked about which way to the beach she said it: You're on an island, it's all around! Btw, you needed to drive to the beach and we had a car but needed her to point in the right direction but she pointed to the room and let us help ourselves there.
Motel-like, extremely stuffy, that basically has paper wall. No views of beautiful St. John. No one to give advice on where to go or any security after dinner hours. Gate is open for all basically. I would suggest to might as well pay a little more and stay at a better place where it may be worth your money.

Thin thread-bare sheets needed replacing years ago. Cheapest possible, thin, old spring mattress they could find, smaller than a twin, just bigger than a cot. Floors falling apart. Not clean like it was. Very disappointing. In dire need of a remodel. Stayed here six years ago and it was much better then. Gave it 1 stars for price but would have given it a zero

then it's fine. Great location and friendly staff, but we're talking about barking dogs behind the inn at 2,3,4a as well as cocks going off throughout the night (which is super common in the VI). The room reminded us of being in the hull of a ship as every time the wind would blow, the roof creaked like there was someone walking around on top of it.

I hate to bash on places, but felt I should warn people. I would pass and spend the extra money for the Westin or any other place a little more out of the action...especially for a honeymoon or any other special occasion.

This was my 7th trip to St. John, and first time staying at The Tamarind... and now I know where I will stay during future trips! Stephanie and her staff were very friendly and helpful. We arrived on a Monday afternoon and realized Tuesday morning that there was no hot water, I mentioned it to Stephanie and she quickly found the problem and had it fixed before lunchtime. Our room was spacious and comfortable. The courtyard was a great place to relax and have a few drinks by the bar after a long day at the beach. Location is amazing! 3 minute walk to downtown Cruz Bay, and an even shorter walk to Dolphin Mart and a great bakery/coffee shop right next door. Overall it was a great experience and I highly recommend The Tamarind to anyone visting St. John!

The Inn was very good by island standards, remember this is not eh USA. For a solo traveler it was perfect. A room to sleep in with ceiling fan, screens, and window AC. Shared shower with hot and col water. Good location. Will recommend this to all I know traveling toSt. John.

If you area a light sleeper, bring earplugs. There are chickens and roosters about and a bar in the courtyard.

Close to town location, yet not noisy. Friendly staff. Includes simple breakfast. Dining courtyard/bar is pleasant. A tad pricey, but it's St. John. Two blocks from Starfish Market and most restaurants.

So easy to get around from the Inn at Tamarind. Great place to stay with modest accommodations. Close to grocery store, bakery, park and ocean. We walked to Solomon and Honeymoon Beach. We had new beds that were comfy, cozy. Staff was very helpful and kind. The water pressure wasn't great, but adequate. Most of our friends stayed at high buck rentals and they were riddled with all kinds of maintenance problems. The Inn has a lovely garden where you can enjoy your morning coffee. I would stay here again.
