Had another great holiday at the Tamassa. Weather could have been better but unfortunately they can’t control that! Plenty of choice in the Show restaurant, caters for all. Staff are wonderful, so friendly and eager to make everyone enjoy their holiday. Rooms perfectly adequate and cleaned well. Beach beautifully maintained, so many fish to see whether snorkelling or just wading out. Special thanks to Bady our housekeeper for looking after our room so well, Sanjay for his friendly face in the mornings at breakfast, Tesha in the Playa restaurant, Sabrina in the bar who remembered us from 2 years ago and extra special thanks to Rafik who looked after us so well on the beach once again. We love you Tamassa.

Dear Andrea M,

Millions of thanks from team Tamassa for your loyalty towards our resort.

We were truly amazed to welcome you back in the Tamassa family for the second time and most of all to see that once again you were totally blown away by the genuine friendliness and extreme passion of our team members, especially Bady, Sanjay, Tesha, Sabrina and Rafick who are indeed among our superstars.

We all wish to welcome you back again and again!!

Before we begin we would just like to thank all the amazing staff at the Tamassa Resort for a wonderful Honeymoon (2 weeks) in late October 2017.
To name any would be a discredit to the rest as they all go way above and beyond to customer service.

Check In
Check in was pleasant and fast with towel and welcome drink upon arrival. Bags delivered to our room (3021) by concierge on buggy and we were shown by arrival team and were given bottle of sparkling wine and also massage in spa due to our Honeymoon.

Room (3021)
The room was spacious, tidy, and clean and terrace has great view. The bathroom was very big with plenty of space and drawers for clothes. The AC was excellent.
We used the cleaning service for 2 weeks (approx. £65.00) by completing form, phoning laundry before 10am and usually receiving it back cleaned late in evening (on same day).
There are plenty of electrical sockets in the rooms (British and European).

WIFI
Excellent WIFI as used in room, beach, at pool and bar and never had any issues at all

Food
Cannot fault the food and what the chefs prepared for everyone as they would go out their way making anything you liked.
We mostly dined in the Buffet restaurant but had dinner on 2 occasions at the Playa; on the Beach for my birthday and our honeymoon dinner. We both had fantastic meals and experiences.
The buffet restaurant had such a varied option of food at dinner that it was near impossible not to find anything you didn’t like ;salads, soups, Pizza, roast (Lamb / beef), traditional food along with themed evening etc. (try the rum with coffee)
The burger van was amazing and the guys working there are fantastic and will go out their way for anything you like. Arguably the best burgers I have tasted.
Breakfast was again varied with a buffet the size of a house where it’s practically not to like anything.

We completed 2 tours (fishing and sightseeing) and ordered our pack lunches at reception with no problems at all on picking them up and what we were given.


Drink
The drink was fine (red wine, beer cocktails and gin) and the waiters make sure your glasses are never empty. Found B Bar to be a fantastic place to chill at night and there is always entertainment on.


Pools / Beach
The hotel was busy during our stay and we never struggled for beds at the beach.
To be honest – as advised by the staff the hotel was near to capacity – it never felt like that at all.
There are plenty of water activities on offer by the hotel including free cannoning in the Indian Ocean (which I did and really enjoyed).
It’s a beautiful sea to swim / paddle. / Snorkel and walk along and the pools are very clean and have good seats surrounded to relax and chill.
We took a walk along the beach on both directions and always felt secure.
The hotel itself is very secure (guards on at entry and at beach front) and you always feel secure.
If sitting by the beach the waiters will come round and take you drink orders and deliver them to you. They also deliver to the pools at times as well.
There are containers with ice filled with bottles of beer, juice and water around the complex.

SPA / Gym
We used the gym on 1st week and found it very good with a good mixed of machines.
The SPA was good and is a little gem as it’s never in use. I think it could be better organised at times as forgot our appointment but they quickly rectified this and we received our massage (which was fantastic).

Finally
The hotel is eacy accessible for disabled guests. No hills and the hotel can tranposrt guests around in the golf buggies.

One suggestion - the hotel could probably could do with more toilets around the Hotel instead of going to the bars but always ended up with another excuse to get a drink anyway and perhaps having to sign for your drinks, lunch and dinner (which would save time for staff and guests).

However its the staff that make it such an incredible hotel. I was previously in the hospitality trade and can see its a tight run ship. Many thanks and hope to be back some time in future!!

Room Tip: Room 3021 - Good size and midway between hotel and beach

I had a small issue with the food. I refer to our last visit dated 27/10/2014 and our visit for 03/11/2017. The matter was raised to the management team and it was dealt with a high level of professionalism.

A special thanks goes to all the tamassa team who have very professional. Special thanks to Benoit, Ravi,Parvesh, mohun, amar and all those who made our experience a great one. This is our 4th visit to this resort. We have visited several 5* resorts and we recently visited club med albion where the personnel are not caring as this resort. I will give a thump up for Tamassa for showing such level of professionalism and caring towards both mauritian and non mauritian customers.

While visiting the resort with colleagues and friend, i thought the service has changed but its way ahead.

We were pampered by the whole tamassa team for their warm welcome on 12/11/2017. They made everything possible to exceed our expectations. We could not expect this from any hotel and this brought tears of joy for seeing how this resort really care for customers.

Being pregnant, i do not consume alcohol for the time being and the bar team mohun and amar and another guy whom i dont remember the name made absolutely delicious non alcoholic cocktail for me. It was just superb. The bar team are really caring.

Thank you for the magnificient sea room offered to us. It made us feel so comfortable.

The spa team was great and both my husband and i did a massage and this was magical.

The food was nice and great atmosphere.

We will definitely come back again and we hope that this hotel keep up its standard so that we are never fed up coming there.

A special thanks to the devoted team Benoit, Ravi, Parvesh who made everything possible and smooth for us.

Thanks to the guy who washed the shirt of my husband (cant recall the name) and gave it back to us well iron.

Thanks
Anusha

We stayed at the Tamassa as a family for 10 days mid October. We had a brilliant time and thought it was good value for money having stayed at the 5 star Lux Belle Mare a few years before. The staff were brilliant - particularly Sabrina and Jaya at the Bar and Restaurant and Jonathan entertaining everyone at lunchtime.

We had 2 rooms, though having requested adjoining rooms they weren't - wasn't a problem in the end but if you have younger children make sure you really emphasize the need. The rooms were immaculate and spacious, cleaned well and we loved the things left on our beds made of the towels :-)

Food was great, lots of variety and the lobster menu at the Playa restaurant was outstanding (supplement which was fine).

I agree with some of the other reviews - need more possibility of shade round the pools, more sun loungers and the gritty stuff round the pools was horrible - though Parvesh tells us that that's going. More variety needed at tea time - I don't like pancakes and there wasn't much else. One evening we were given some banana chips with our drinks, but that only happened once. Would be good to have more snacks available - on the days when we had a big breakfast and didn't eat lunch it was a long time till dinner. Have to say the burger van was brilliant though - hard to resist them each day!!!

Water sports were good, though the sea was a bit too choppy to try water skiing more than once. Loved the Scuba diving and we saw a turtle!!

Would definitely recommend and we would go back again.

Dear Michelle W,

Team Tamassa send you huge thanks for sharing your holiday experience on TripAdvisor.

We are glad to see that you had an amazing time along with your family whilst enjoying the amazing delicacies of our chef, I agree with you, difficult to resist to those delicious burgers.

I am also glad to read that you thoroughly enjoyed our watersports activities which I must say is a real must whilst being with us as our lagoon is very rich in different species of fish and corals.

I would like to convey a personal thanks to you for your constructive points as at Tamassa, we truly value those feedbacks and they are never left behind as we all know that it will always be of great help to help us achieve our goal which is perfection.

Thank you once again and we all wish to welcome you back very soon to celebrate life.

Sincerely yours’,
