The Tamarix is lovely, the staff are very friendly & the resort is very clean. Breakfast is good and the bar food is also quite good. The decor is also very chic but minimalist, I loved the candles and flowers that made the resort very pretty. The only reservation we really had was that the hotel is advertised as a luxurious 5 star hotel and it is more like an good 3 - 4 star to be honest. We paid a lot of money for a Superior suite and were promised complimentary wine and various other perks in the hotel literature. When we arrived we were quite disappointed by our suite, as it was quite worn and bland, no complimentary wine in sight. We travelled with 15 others and those that booked Junior suites appeared to have nicer rooms. The suites themselves were nice but relatively basic so I am unsure why this hotel has a 5 star rating. Perhaps I am more fussy than most? We just expected more for our money.
In addition the pool is very small and the hotel mainly attracts middle aged couples who want peace and tranquility. We felt that we had to keep our one year old constantly quiet even in the swimming pool as some of the older couples looked miffed if she giggled and splashed in the pool for 5 minutes. Having said that, the staff were very accommodating and the little playroom that they provided was very useful and kept our little one occupied!
Overall the Tamarix is a lovely place but it is probably not ideal for young families as we felt it was more aimed at the 'Saga' holiday market. It is also not best if you are travelling as a group as some residents seemed to object if we had a conversation or played with a ball in the pool. One particularly sour couple even complained because a ball ran past their sunbed. To them we were a rowdy bunch spoiling their peace & quiet but we were just ordinary inoffensive people enjoying our time in the sun. Despite all of this the Tamarix is a great place to stay (probably one f the best in Kamari) and you are guaranteed a clean and pleasant air conditioned room but not necessarily a haven of unadulterated luxury!
