"My husband and I just returned home last night from a 10 day stay at the Tamarijn and we had the most relaxing vacation ever. When I was checking out the reviews they were mixed which made us a bit nervous, so if you are, don't be. Rooms are clean, smaller than expected but who cares, who stays inside? The shower, everyone complains about the shower. Yes, it does get the bathroom floor wet but we would just dry off and throw the towel down....done. We were in the 2500 block, about a 5 minute walk to Bunker Bar and about a 10 min walk to lobby, restaurants, shops and pool, kind of far after a few days so make use of the shuttle. The staff....it amazed us how so many reviews said bad things about the staff. They were the most friendliest people ever, it's funny, the nasty people were some tourists and I am not kidding. Restaurants....buffet was decent. If you get there near the end of each meal, there will be slim pickings but other than that, it was fine. Red Parrot, Palm Grill and Paparazzi were really good. Didn't go to Ginger. Windows was amazing for $35 per person, you get a 3 course meal and worth every penny. Beach....absolutely beautiful. All the complaining about reserving a palapa, if you want one, get up early, put your towels out, go back to sleep. I know it sounds wrong but, play the game or no palapa! Drinks were a bit weak so we went to the store and bought a bottle for our room, no big deal. Your vacation is what you make of it, I think some of these people complain about the silliest things for this resort. You want more, stay at the Ritz, we loved the Tamarijn!!"

"Location is great walk out of your room onto the beach. Sunsets very nice. Restaurants are good. The staff are friendly and helpful. Been there four times in the past 18 months, looking forward to returning in March. Good value for the money especially if you like to have a drink. Very relaxing place. Beach is not crowded."

"This was our second stay at the 'Tam'. We wouldn't stay anywhere else! The staff could not be more attentive, friendly and helpful. If you have any questions/problems/concerns just let Iris or Sol at the consignee desk know - they work miracles!! At breakfast or lunch, be sure to ask for Renata or Hendrix - superb! Really everyone was great - last year and this year. It's nice to know some things never change - at least at the Tamarijn. I strongly recommend it!"
