The Tamarind Remodeled, Reopened & is Ready for You! (When Guests are allowed to return of course!)

The Tamarind Remodeled, Reopened & is Ready for You! (When Guests are allowed to return of course!) 1
The Inn at Tamarind Court

Well folks, we have great news to share with you today! But before I begin, I need to admit that I am little late to the party on this one. But nevertheless, this is great news to share with you!

The Inn at Tamarind Court sustained tremendous damage during the 2017 hurricanes. After more than two years of remodeling, the Tamarind reopened its standard rooms to guests back in February, and the place looks great!

For those of you who are not familiar with the Tamarind, it’s an affordable spot that’s located just five minutes from the ferry dock in Cruz Bay. Rates start at $81 a night in low season and at $90 a night during high season … you can’t beat that, folks!

The Tamarind currently has 14 rooms that will be available once the Governor lifts the current accommodations ban. (As you likely have read, villas, hotels, inns, etc. cannot accept new guests though April 24.)

The Tamarind has eight standard rooms that were completely rebuilt following the storms. Of those, five have a queen bed and a private bath; two have two twin beds and a private bath; and one has two queen beds and a private bath. It also has six economy/single rooms that were renovated following the storms. This is a dorm-style building with two shared bathrooms. Each of the six rooms has one twin bed.

All rooms have cable, wifi, USB ports, ceiling fans, mini fridges and air conditioning.

Looks nice, doesn’t it?

There are eight additional rooms that are still under construction. Discounted rates are being offered while construction is ongoing.

Work continues on the Tamarind’s onsite restaurants. They hope to have that open by next season (mid to late fall), if not sooner.

  1. I stayed here for several weeks off and on while I was building my villa. Great spot . Wonderful breakfast and friendly management. (Is Stephanie still there? she is the best.) For those on a budget, highly recommend.

  2. While I am grateful to receive your mailing each day, I would love it if you went back to the once a week mailing that included multiple articles.

  3. Great news! Please report back on the restaurant, we had so many great breakfasts and dinners there during our early STJ years.

  4. Thanks for the article Jenn! It’s been a long, hard process to say the least & the positive kind commits really mean a lot! We’re glad to be back in business and looking forward to reopening once the Gov’t closer is lifted. To answer your question Lester, the bar/restaurant is currently under reno and we hope to have it open by next season, if not sooner. You can check our website for updates. Stay safe everyone!

    • We first ate at the court in June 1995 during our honeymoon. Another memorable trip was years later when our son was 3-ish and was so excited about the mango pancakes.

      Best of luck and we will be sure to stop by next trip!

      • So happy to hear this! We have stayed at the Inn numerous times and have so many great memories! Love the little bar and the wonderful breakfasts! We were so sad after the hurricane damage forced you to close. Look forward to staying there again soon!

  5. Stayed here in the past. Hopefully with the remodel the employee manager also got some re-training to be more polite to guests.
