Spent one day at Tamassa with the family. This is one fifth visit and we have always booked one to three nights stays. However, this time, since we did not have much time we decided to go for the day package. Upon arrival, the staff greeted us with such a nice smile and not to forget the mini refreshing cocktails. We had also booked a room and immediately got it as soon as we reached. The room , as always , smelled wonderful. Our room was opposite one of the swimming pools. In fact, there are around 3 to 4 swimming pools so even if you dont want to swim near you room, you can always choose another quiet one. The main swimming pool next to the bar is a must. You can just sit down and relax while sipping your coffee. The virgin cocktails which are inclusive are very good. Tamassa has a great variety of cocktails and virgin ones. In terms of food, we had three choices. Either a burger at the burger truck, the main resto or a la carte. Since we were a bit late for lunch, we chose the burger with their lovely chips or salad. The burgers are the best, as far as, i have tasted in the hotels i have been to. The icecream parlour has a variety of ice creams from 12 to 3pm. And it is unlimited!!! There was also good entertainment with aquafun. We had the managers who constantly asked us if we were okay and if we needed anything else. Not to forget the staff who are so welcoming and professional. However, above all, most importantly is the covid protocol which Tamassa has respected. We could not enter the restaurant or even order a burger without our mask. They had spare new masks to offer in case we forgot ours somewhere. During the covid period, for me this is one of the most important element before choosing a hotel. Hats off Tamassa! Looking forward to going back once again, but this time we will stay over for a few nights πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€ Read less
