Sitting at the airport waiting to go home to London and feeling sad at leaving this beautiful island. Tamassa resort is very good for the value of money. It's slightly dated and could be doing with polished up a bit in terms of room decor, but the grounds and public areas are all spotless clean and well cared for.. There are a few members of staff we would like to mention as they went above and beyond in making for a superb memorable holiday. The first is Jonathan. Johnathan sings and plays the guitar everyday at lunchtime at the b bar. He has the most amazing happy persona who gets everyone singing and laughing- he also takes the bicycle trips to Le Morne mountain and encourages you to do the trail up Le Morne. He made the trip very interesting and he was really knowledgable of the area and very good fun- would highly recommend doing... The next is Sabrina, who looked after us in our room (1052) is was spotless every day with fresh towels- nothing was too much trouble for her, a lovely helpful lady:) And last, vinney who is the manager of playa restaurant, he always checked that everything was in good order and on our last night ( it was vinneys day off , but he arranged this beforehand as a surprise for us) had us sat at a special table under the thatch , it was a lovely evening, we were spoiled rotten by the staff, so thanku vinney for making our last night in Mauritius very special. Would highly recommend this hotel Read less
