Decent stay and friendly staff overall. We were pleasantly surprised that we got a free upgrade to beach room in a relatively secluded area with a nice view although the hotel was fully booked. During our stay, both restaurants, Show and Playa, were serving buffet style for dinner due to high occupancy rate at that time (my assumption). Service at the main restaurant, Show, was generally excellent while Playa's service was quite slow and sluggish. The food variety and quality at dinner on our first day was exquisite and way above expectation. However on our second day, there was a significant drop in variety and quality was average. Recommended for friends and family as there are lots of activities to have a great time together. Also, the beef burgers from the Food Truck are a must try. Read less

Another stay at Tamassa made memorable by the wonderful team there. Starting from Anusha at the reservation, Nishad room division manager. My special thanks goes to Kevin, Yovin, Ayush, Shairah, Roshan, Medha, Melanie, Teddy, Ravish, Altaf and Vinesh. As soon as we arrived, the staff were very welcoming and that immediately set the mood for the rest of our stay. Service was outstanding and the food was so yummy. Tamassa has such a homely atmosphere that always makes us come back. We will definitely come again. First, the hotel is located in a very nice setting with a beautiful beach, the rooms were clean and comfortable, the main pool and smaller pools were enjoyable. Then, the buffet food at the main restaurant was very good and varied - Burger truck was handy for a quick lunch and a favourite with the kids. And the live music and shows organized every night were fun, especially the sega night with Denis Claude Gaspard. The live music and show at night was just MEMORABLE.I really love the hotel ,its staff and the environment Oh we also discovered an ice cream shop at the last minute. Read less

Thanks to the Playa team for the surprise birthday party. Very much appreciated. A true sample of excellent hospitality. The staff at Tamassa are all great! They all went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. Special mention to Chef Mahesh and Chef Harjit. The chocolate lava cake and the Indian curries were just amazing. This is the perfect hotel for a weekend getaway. Highly recommend this hotel for its true sample of excellent hospitality. Read less
