A relaxing, well run hotel A review of The Tamarind Club
We spent 8 days at the Tamarind Club in late summer 2002. Most hotel guests are there for a day or two, before or after a yacht charter, but we enjoyed our longer stay. The rooms are comfortable if basic, clean and well maintained. The rooms surround a very pleasant swimming pool. There is a bar restaurant adjacent to the pool. The staff was extremely competent and friendly, and gave us good recommendations for snorkel charters and other activities. The restaurant was excellent, with new specials each night; a little pricey, but comparable to most Totola restaurants. We particularly enjoyed rolling out of bed and enjoying the Continental breakfast before getting started on our day's activities. We found plenty to do on the island, but be sure and rent a 4WD to get around; the resort is relatively isolated on the island, and you will drive most places, except perhaps for the nearest beach which offers fine swimming, decent snorkling and a small snack bar/cafe. We were completely relaxed in a couple of days and never regretted our decision to stay at the Tamarind club for our entire Tortola vacation!
