              We enjoyed our stay at Tambua Sands. The room was basic but clean and in a great location. There were a lot of things we could do at the resort as well as in the surrounding area. The food and drinks were reasonably priced and the breakfast was basic but satisfactory.

              I have just had 8days at Tambua Sands and the only disappointing thing was, I requested a stand alone Bure and they completely ignored my request and yet again I had a joined one. The people in the other unit were too noisy and I didn't get much sleep. A big Hello to Eta and Nina, see you soon Janice Williams

              Great little hotel but make sure you get an ocean view Bure. We had a garden view orginally but we asked to upgrade after 1 day because the garden Bure we had was dark, dated and very close to the road it wasn’t really what we imagined! However the staff are super friendly Tui and Sunny especially and they run some good little activities for you to learn more about Fiji and it’s history and culture. There is only one restaurant at the hotel, the food is ok but nothing outstanding if you want to eat anywhere else you’ll need to pay for a taxi to another resort or into the local town. Great little place to sit back and relax for a few days!

              This was our fifth time at Tambua Sands. Previously we stayed at a couple of larger resorts and even hired a private rental but we now stay at Tambua Sands each time. The resort is small and peaceful... you never get crowded in the pool and can always get a lounge. Food is great and happy hour goes forever 😀 The best part is the amazing staff. They will do anthing for you and we love going back to see them and hear about their families. You can snorkel directly in front of your Bure.... and the marine life is plentiful. Can't wait till we go back in November

              The place is lovely and the staff excellent. The place could use an update...the bathrooms are very old and our shower hardly worked. Sadly the food was the least attractive feature. Gorgeous fish but nothing local beyond that. We don't travel to eat burgers! And surely a little muesli for breakfast would be possible as well as weetbix? Don't serve canned pears in the land of fresh fruit!!! This could be firstrate but currently it's mediocre. Perhaps some shade on the verandah?

              There is no tv or air con in the rooms which makes it a true retreat l. Comfortable beds, clean room and bathroom. Ocean views and breeze makes it cool along with the ceiling fan. Staff can not be more helpful and there is security. It is very quiet and just what you need to relax your mind. Food is a little expensive but nothing you wouldn’t pay at a restaurant... most importantly is tasty and does not disappoint. Would definitely go here again.

              We spent four days at Tambua Sands with our three children and loved every moment. The atmosphere is relaxed and plenty of activities for the children to enjoy. As it is a smaller resort there's not a whole lot of people there at the same time and it has a feeling of safety and being laid back. The food was great quality and portion sizes, especially in the children's menu.The staff are lovely and very genuine, we loved the fact that Lori and Tui learned the children's names and were lot's of fun. As a three star resort there is no TV or air con in the rooms, but when you are in such an amazing setting, with rooms designed to breathe and allow airflow, this is an actually an advantage as you're not distracted and you also stay acclimatised. There were opportunities to see and experience some Fijian cultural displays. Our opinion is that this is simply the best resort in its star rating and you would be hard pressed to find better. It is highly recommended.

              Tambua Sands was a lovely surprise after the uninspiring drive from Nadi. Good points:- great meals at good prices, excellent included breakfast, bures, comfy beds, setting, views, entertainment for children, great pool. A paddling pool for tots would be good, also some entertainment in the evening, as the bar didnt offer anything to encourage adults to gather. Families with children had no choice but sit in the bure with nothing to fill their evening. On the whole, a lovely spot.

              We Instantly felt relaxed from the moment we arrived at the resort. The staff were amazing, so friendly and welcoming and we met Tia the new resort manager the day before we left who also made sure we felt looked after. The food was generous and tasty as were the cocktails. The only thing I could mention is the sea isn't very good for bathing but that's to be expected I suppose for being on the coral coast. Although we travelled as a couple you could tell the resort had a real family feel about it with staff arranging activities for the kids. Accommodation wise, it was really clean, beds comfy and nothing to complain about in this respect. Overall we had an amazing time here with nothing bad to say. Thank you

              Bure had no fridge or aircon. One ceiling fan was sufficient for winter with a lovely sea breeze and close to seafront. Bathroom needs updating and poor water pressure. A typical Fijian style quiet and restful but a long way from Nadi.

              I found the location beautiful. Great snorkelling off of the beach, and loved watching the crashing waves outside of the coral. Comfortable bed and great staff. Enjoyed food as well. I loved my time there

              Pros: right on the beach, great location for day trips, low cost accommodation, clean, big pool, restaurant food is average price and quality, snorkelling in the lagoon is good at high tide. Cons: villas are a bit old & tired, no shallow end in pool for young kids, staff a little distant, beds were hard, no beach swimming at low tide. We found this place great for the budget. It may be a little older and needing some TLC, but the rooms were clean and well serviced every day. We had 2 adults & 2 kids in one bure/villa and it was fine for us. Not much room inside, but there is a bar, a large lounge/TV area, a pool table area and restaurant, plus beach and pool so no need to feel stuck in the villas. There were some nice new looking villas with their own plunge pools in front, but they only let couples in them. It's a lovely beach and so much nicer than a hotel, yet priced similarly. Good location with lots to do in the area. Not 5 star but good value.
