Very nice personable staff, went out of their way to help us with specific needs. Rooms have screened/ shuttered windows, very unique. Great catamaran snorkeling tour and good island tour by van. Fresh coconuts for coconut water regularly cut down for us by the beach crew

20th Anniversary TripPosted Jun 11, 2015
Pros: We loved that the resort was small and quiet. Very relaxing and peaceful.
Cons: Our suite had one air conditioner in the sitting room. I would suggest that that air conditioner be in the bedroom or adding stand up fans to help air
Location: there are a couple of other beaches to visit but no need when you have the beach that this resort has!
My husband & I traveled to Canouan for our anniversary trip. After searching every island in the Caribbean we kept coming back to Tamarind because we loved that it offered the rooms on the beach and it seemed to be a quiet & relaxing atmosphere. We were not disappointed at all. We loved everything about our stay from being the only people on our beach a few days in a row, wonderful food & a staff that was attentive to our needs and took the time to get to know us as we did them. I only gave the room comfort a 4 because all the rooms are louvered & the one air conditioner in our suite didn't seem to keep us cool enough as we slept. But we loved being able to hear the waves crash all night long. I would suggest the catamaran day trip to Tobago Cays & Mayreaux. It was so much fun to see the Cays & snorkel with the turtles. Canouan is a beautiful island and the wonderful staff at the resort will take care you! We can't wait to return!

Utterly amazing service!Posted Apr 20, 2015 on Hotels
We had a superb week at the Tamarind Beach Hotel. The service was wonderful. Felix from the restaurant, Rosita, Floyd and numerous others made our stay truly special. I cannot help but feel concerned for the hotel'sfuture, as it falls between two stools. Historically this must have been THE luxury hotel in Canouan, nowadays surpassed by the islands newest resort. I'm relieved we chose as we did. Whilst the rooms may be slightly tired, they are more than adequate, and this is more than made up for by the position, staff service and opportunities to engage with local residents. Unlike larger gated complexes, the staff at Tamarind are happy to explain were that night's entertainment is to be found. Wednesday is Casablanca del Mar, a small choice from the bbq and a bar til early hours. The Mangrove is open all week but has live music Friday evening. Tiptoes is saturday night, though we didn't get there. Ask reception and they'll ring "Scoopy", the local taxi guy. He'll take you anywhere on the island and back for EC$20. Try it, the island is great and full of good people. I feel the Tamarind Beach Hotel's future lies in making the most of the islanders hospitality, and visa versa.

Prepare for a more rustic experience than the photPosted Jun 28, 2014
Well, they provide mosquito repellant in the rooms if that's a hint. The beach is lovely and the island is very small so this is probably the nicest option on the island, but it is a basic hotel that is older and could really use some basic upgrades. The toilet didn't flush, the tub had rust stains, and the king-sized bed was two twine pushed together. I kept falling into the crease between the two mattresses. I could have ignored the old linens and whatnot, but we spent a lot of time in the room because it rained a lot while we were there. If you will only sleep there, this is ok but not worth the resort price.
