I spent a family weekend on 16th Jan and we were just conquered. The staff is genuine and helpful from the first contact until departure.It would be unfair to mention some names as they were all so amazing. Our appreciation goes to the back of the house Team as well for their valued contribution to make it a success in front. The Managers we met were permanently available and always present and attentive to the guests. Their total support to the staff team was honestly visible. A great job by the Chef and his Team for the large varieties and choices offered with attention to guests requests. The activities and entertainments highly contribute to the success of the Tamassa Resort. I was really impressed by the high quality maintenance of the premises overall. It gives the impression of walking in a newly opened Resort. I wish to extend my appreciations to the GM for the challenging mission accomplished by his highly motivated Management and Staff Team for the success of the Tamassa Establishment. We shall definitely be back. Read less
