      Awesome As Usual

      I’ve been on Island many times and always stay at the Tamarind. Stephanie is amazing. The place is simple but yet has everything you need and at the best price on STJ.

      My only hessitation in writing is that I hope this property remains a well kept secret and available for my next trip. Having picked a lower price point property for my first trip to St. John, I was skeptical. However, every detail of this renovated room (queen bed) was outstanding, especially the cleanliness and management's attention to every detail of my stay. Typical for St. John, the property is an uphill walk (5 min) from Cruz Bay with some stairs to climb, and has no amenities outside the very clean and comfortable room, which was all I was seeking. In preparing for my trip, the management kept in contact regarding my arrival and the owner greeted me at my departure to make sure everything had been o.k. Be prepared for roosters in the morning (the room included disposable ear plugs for sleeping) and occasional brief power failures, a minor issue with the island (not particular to this property). If all you want is a very clean, comfortable room (with good A/C), in a great location, and don't mind a few stairs) you can't go wrong with the Inn at Tamarind.

      It was clean and comfortable and only a short walk to town. There is a market within a half block and next door there is an amazing coffee, smoothie, breakfast and lunch place. The location is so convenient! I will definitely stay there again !

      The Most Amazing and Affordable Hotel in St. John!

      This hotel exceeded our expectations! It's even prettier and cleaner in person, I still can't believe I snagged such a good deal. The hotel is about a 5 minute walk to Cruz Bay which saved us money in not paying for taxis when we wanted to go out to eat. I went with my 10 year old son and we felt safe walking to and from the hotel since it's so close to the "downtown" touristic area of Cruz Bay (wish I could say the same about our stay in St. Thomas). The property owner greeted us upon our self check-in which made us feel instantly comfortable upon arrival. She also goes out of her way to have sunscreen, mosquito spray, waters in the mini fridge, a cooler to take to the beach, lamplight (incase power goes out) and beach towels in your room. I thought this was very thoughtful and we definitely made use of it! The property is well kept, we would see the owners almost every day with a leaf blower and providing maintenance to the hotel. My son and I loved St. John and we will definitely be rebooking Tamarind Court for our next stay. Thank you Tamarind Court for the amazing hospitality!

      My boyfriend and I stayed here in one of their double twin bed rooms for our recent trip to St. John and absolutely loved it! The room was exactly what we needed for our laid-back trip. We were able to push the beds together to make a queen bed, and the host also provided in the room some unexpected goodies (two beers, coral safe sunscreen, bug spray, ear plugs, shampoo, soaps, blow dryer, extra beach towels, a cooler, and reusable bag). The location is fantastic; next door is a cute little coffee shop, the market is a 2 minute walk away, and all the shops/restaurants of Cruz Bay are just down the hill at about 5-10minutes walking. The property suffered some hurricane damage, and so expect a little construction while they rebuild their on site restaurant. The only thing we did not like about our stay were the chickens; we struggled to sleep the first night as the roosters were so loud! But this can happen anywhere on the island. Chickens roam free everywhere on St. John, so just download a white sound machine app beforehand to help you sleep. The rest of the nights the chickens were not nearby and it was great. Highly recommend staying here!

      Tamarind Court was perfect for me. I was looking for a clean, safe, budget accommodation close to ferry/bus/restaurants/market/hiking trails and that’s what I got plus more. I stayed for 5 nights in the building with 6 single rooms and 2 shared bathrooms, which was like a mini dorm/boarding house for adult travelers. On the shared terrace and in the hallway, I occasionally met fellow lodgers who were all very friendly. Stephanie, the manager, was absolutely fantastic with outstanding communication before and during my stay; I really appreciated the info I received before the trip as well as her prompt responses to my emails.

      Stephanie was an amazing host. She made us feel welcome and took care care of anything we needed. We will most definitely be back and will stay here again. It’s so close to town and can’t wait till the courtyard opens back up again!!
