Old property, yes. Low standard, yes. But for us - 4 adults and 3 kids -Tamarind was pure luxury. Perhaps it is because the hotel and the surroundings represents something you consider being lost and only belonging to the past.
In this hotel you are not hidden behind high walls and your everyday life is not ruled by a lot of regulations. The three kids loved for example the possibility to use the pool also in the night. The extraordenary warm and friendly people working at Tamarind didn't see any troubles in making you breakfast or dinner outside the ordinary hours and they did their best to make you feel satisfied.
We lived only a few metres from the fabulous, very long, white beach with seashells, animals, kind locals, extremely few tourists and no huzzling beach boys.
If you look for the kind of high standard hotels you find all over the world - don't choose this one. If you look for genuin atmosphere - go to Tamarind and ask for room 17 och 18 - they are the best!
Dear Tamarind - your big family from Finland loves you. We had a good week also in Nungwi but it felt artificial and crowdy compared to you. Good luck!
