Resort Profile

One of the more upscale beach resorts in Barbados, Tamarind by Elegant Hotels caters well to both couples and families with contemporary accommodations and a good selection of activities. The beach is small and lackluster (this factor has a strong negative effect on the TripValue and Overall Beach Resort Rating, downgrading the latter from the lower A range to the middle B range) and there’s no swim-up bar; but the property offers three swimming pools (including an adults-only spa pool), al fresco beachfront dining, good restaurants for an all-inclusive (including Daphne’s, the popular Italian restaurant next door, where Tamarind guests have access to a select dinner menu), an on-site spa with couples treatments, separate kids and teens clubs, private dining for couples on the beach, plush poolside furniture, and a water trampoline. Rooms come with a modern style, vibrant tropical colors, flat-screen TVs, private balconies or patios, mini-fridges, and laptop safes; standard rooms and larger suites are available. Activities include sailing, kayaking, water skiing, tubing, banana boat rides, stand-up paddleboarding, horseback riding, jet skiing, yoga and Pilates classes, and island tours including the Rum Shop Crawl. The Sandy Lane Golf Course is nearby, and there’s a complimentary water taxi to nearby sister properties, where guests have access to the restaurants and other features.

All travelers to Barbados are required to present proof of a valid negative COVID-19 PCR test taken at a an accredited or recognized laboratory within three days prior to arrival. It is also necessary to complete your on-line immigration and customs form by going to The form should be completed 24 hours prior to arrival, and preferably include the upload of your negative COVID-19 PCR test result. Travelers will be required to retest with a COVID-19 PCR test 5 days (120 hours) after their arrival in the country. If the result of that second PCR test is negative, that traveler can now enjoy unrestricted movement to public spaces (including the beach). Guests from High and Medium Category countries (which currently includes the UK, the US and Canada) must quarantine in their rooms until the second test is negative.

The TripValue score compares a resort’s Overall Beach Resort Rating to its average room price (which we express as the Price-Implied Rating). It tells you if the resort is relatively underpriced (a positive TripValue), overpriced (a negative TripValue), or fairly priced (an Even TripValue), on average.
