I have recently got back from my stay at the Tamarind and what a great place to stay! The service is exceptional, with a rum punch on arrival. The beach and location were superb and the rooms were very comfortable, with great storage facilities.
My only grumble would be the room service menu - there wasn't a great selection on it. But then I suppose this is to encourage guests to eat in the restaurant. Moving on to the restaurant, whilst the food was nice, I felt it was overpriced compared to the quality of food at similarly priced restaurants nearby.
Also, if you have a room above the restaurant, the bands can be quite loud but these are generally finished around 10pm. Might not be so great if you have young children with you though - or trying to sleep off the jet-lag!
