Room was comfortable, view was wonderful. Staff was very helpful. My only complaint was that the spa was difficult to get in to. But overall a great experience!! Even my teenager approved. Everything was clean, everyone was friendly and accommodating.

Tamarind Reef is a very comfortable, clean, conveniently located, friendly, spacious, safe, and a pretty place to stay. All of the staff were helpful and accommodating and the room we had on the upstairs level was breezy, cool, super clean with loads of room. However, if you are looking for a hotel with a beach to step right out onto and have a swim, this might not be for you. There is a beach, but there is also a long (probably healthy) reef that runs all along the waterfront that is daunting with rocks and sea urchins etc... We are seasoned snorkelers and swimmers and brought aqua shoes with us to navigate the reef but never felt quite brave enough. There is a pool, but it is quite small and gets a lot of use. We opted for the beach at the Buccaneer just down the road for a $15 cab fare. Once there, you can buy a $10 wristband that entitles you to use of their beach, chairs, umbrella, and some toys. We also drove to Fredricksted a few times where the SandCastle hotel also offers the same option and the beach there is more than worth the drive. The restaurant and bar at the Tamarind Reef has a great atmosphere with a very friendly staff but the hours and what they offer are still a bit confusing due to coming out of the covid restrictions etc... All in all, this is a wonderfully chill place to stay that has a casual charm to it that is representative of Saint Croix it self...and the price is totally fair!

First of all, this is in no way shape or form a 4 or 5 star resort. If that’s what you’re looking for go elsewhere and pay the big(ger) bucks. In fact, calling this a resort is a bit of a stretch. It’s more like a nice ocean front motel with a nice pool and restaurant adjacent. The single best quality about the Tamarind is that all the rooms have a full direct ocean view and are at the water’s edge. I don’t think there’s anything else like it on the island. For all 3 buildings, the first floor has a patio and the second a balcony. The rooms themselves are clean and quite spacious and seem to be recently renovated. There’s no beach in front of any of the three buildings. But there is a nice beach adjacent to the pool area. But like most of Saint Croix it’s rocky in the water. In general the grounds are in need of a good amount of TLC. It’s not bad but they could do a lot more with it. We ate at the restaurant a couple times and the food was very good and reasonably priced. Oddly they weren’t open for breakfast on Saturday or Sunday. Maybe a Covid thing.

Our stay at the Tamarind Reef was great. We had a ground floor ocean side room. Every morning you can go out on your patio and be 150 feet or so from the ocean with a gorgeous view of Buck Island and peace and quiet. The room had a stove, microwave, and refrigerator. This was great for cooking up a quick breakfast or lunch in the room. The staff was super friendly, the gym was nice as well. The Deep End restaurant was awesome if you are looking for a casual fun place to hang out. When I go back to St. Croix I will be staying there again for sure.

I stayed here about a month. The staff are amazing and it was the best experience at a resort/hotel I’ve experienced. I travel a lot, so that says something. The Deep End restaurant is also an outstanding addition to the resort. I could go on, but would definitely recommend staying here if you go to St. Croix.
