We had a fantastic time at Tambua Sands. The service was great, and the singing superb with our evening meal. We enjoyed the kayaking and the snorkelling, and overate most of the time. The new burres look fantastic, they'll be an extra asset.

Perfect place for people that want to stay close to nature in quiet surroundings. Good for snorkeling for beginners, kayaking (free of charge). The most friendly staff and local people. One of the best ever culinary experience in the resort's restaurant, all food cooked from fresh local ingredients. What they call "organic" in Sydney, simply grows there naturally. We recommend "kokoda fish" if it's still on menu. Unforgettable taste of food (cooked by very talented chef Moses). Great accommodation value for the money (ocean view). Definitely we'd love to come back to this place again.

Excellent staff, nice beaches, excellent fish and coral opportunities: clown fish, angel fish, puffers, and all colors of the spectrum of fish I don't know names of. Awesome coral of all kinds. Reminds em of the Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau....all by snorkeling too!

Kayaks are easy to use, and kids enjoy them.

Staff is very polite and accommodating.

Rooms are clean and fresh.

Room Tip: Beachfront is very nice.

No it isn't a five star resort how ever my wife and I had a five star experience. The staff and location were fantastic. The money we saved on the accomodation allowed us to hire a car which meant we could have a true Fijian experience, visiting waterfalls villages towns in our own time. Yes the buildings are a little old and basic but we had no expectation and were pleasantly surprised with our beach front Bure. We enjoyed lots of time with staff who were keen to talk about thier lives and villages with out trying to sell any thing. If you are a surfer I surfed every day driving to local breaks Sigatoka River mouth, Hidaway (next door) and then to surf camps to use there boats to get to other places including Frigates.
My wife and I have been to Fiji twice previously staying at Hideaway and The Fijian Shangri-la. we believe Fiji is not about staying locked down in a five star resort only to leave it to drive to the airport, it's about the people and the place (outside your resort).
This was with out a dout our best visit so far and WILL BE RETURNING to Tambua Sands.
Tambua Sands is a great relaxed place to stay, probably not the best for the kids but it is what you make it and we loved it.

Room Tip: Beach front ask to be near main building.

We stayed two nights at Tambua Sands. It is an older resort and a bit worn around the edges. The beds and linens were clean. The rooms and dining area was well kept. The staff was friendly and helpful. That is exactly what we wanted, a great place for a reasonable price.

We stayed for 5 nights and we enjoyed it more and more each day, partly because the weather got better but also as we got more and more relaxed. The bure was simple but comfortable and quite large, we even had dinner sent to the bure a couple of nights as we liked hanging out there on the front patio. The new management (in May 2013) have obviously dealt with any staff problems, the staff were very polite and quick to serve you, always there when you want them but kept out of the way when you didn't which was perfect for this smaller and quieter resort. The gardens are beautifully kept and the pool is lovely too.

We had a great time exploring (walking) the reef at low tide like the locals who were collecting shells etc.Definitely put some sandals on and do this if you get a low tide combined with light wind which lets you see through the surface easily. I've never seen so many starfish, bright blue ones too. Nice place to kayak too protected by the reef.

We are now at a much larger resort (The Pearl South Pacific) which has more mod cons but I feel like I experienced the real Fiji at Tambua Sands - without leaving the resort either!

Room Tip: 2 deluxe bures with plunge pools looked nice, glass windows and maybe AC but the standard bures are...
