Tamarind by Elegant Hotels is one of the many Elegant Properties in Barbados. And, in that fashion, caters to both families and couples.

Parents are able to arrange babysitting throughout the day with certified nannies and babysitters, whether they’d like to have an extra eye on children at the pool or they’d prefer to dine alone for an evening. The Flying Fish Kids Club offers fun-filled activities for kids up to age 12. Club Tamarind offers video game consoles and large-screen TVs, air hockey, pool, ping-pong, and foosball. Chaperoned movie nights at the local movie theater and organized volleyball games are also options for tweens.

Guests who want to engage in watersports can waterski and ride banana boats or tubes. Snorkeling and kayaking are also available. For those who want to work out before heading outside, there is a 24-hour fitness center. Additional sports like beach volleyball, football, or cricket can be arranged at the front desk.

Additionally, there are several restaurants that guests can choose from, including Rilaks Deck a South Beach Miami-inspired outdoor lounge that serves light food and cocktails all day. Those who would like larger meals on the beachfront can choose to dine at 246 Bar & Restaurant, which offers themed dinner nights and live entertainment on select nights. Additionally, couples can enjoy a dinner on a beach.
