We stayed at Tamassa from 26 to 27 September 2020. We were 5 persons. Unfortunately our stay was short but we enjoyed so much that we were so sad to leave. I would like to say a big thanks to the whole Tamassa staff even though we did not meet them personally for the wonderful job they are doing as without them our stay would not be so memorable. Amisha was the one whom we met first who has arranged our check in and has been assisting us with all queries and assistance needed. Jessina and her friend from house keeping were the one who took us around the hotel and showed us our room. Mr Mahesh pampered us with so much food and treated us like a family. Thank you Mr Edinho for the best almond croisant i have ever tasted. Mr Sandiren as well has made us some delicious desert. We spent a nice time at the spa having a great time with the relaxing message enjoying the jacuzzi, Sauna and hamam. A big thanks to the whole team for working so hard to make our stay so enjoyable and keep it up team. We will surely come back to the hotel again. Highly recommended. From Priscilla 😎😎😎😎😊😊😊 Read less

Due to the discount offer we were able to turn our day package into a night one. This was my 4th time to Tamassa, 1st time I stayed over was for a competition, 2nd & 3rd time were on day packages. Still when given the choice to go to a hotel Tamassa was my 1st choice, even though I'm adventurous by nature and like to try different things. My husband who has never been there told me you've been there already why go again and I told him wait until you are there and oh boy he returned from there with a promise to go back!! We stayed 1 night but still enjoyed our stay thoroughly. From a beach volley game, a football match, to the different outdoor games like chess and ring and toss, the club where we had a table tennis match, to a live show and then on our return a surprisingly great foam party in the pool. In was awesome! Below is a full review: Food & Drinks: Abundant but a bit on the dry side but ok though. Staff: Very friendly, helpful and warm. I do not know if it's because there were no foreign customers or it is customary to the Hotel but I did not feel their treatment to us was any different just because we were locals. Special mention and thanks to Amisha, Jonathan, Swadesh & Trinsley. Activities: Full on. Infrastructure & comfort level: Great & Luxurious. Downside: We did not get to enjoy the disco but that's on Covid-19 not on the Hotel. Read less
