Reviewed 9 January 2014

we were two familes (4 adults 4 Kids) spend a total of 4nights in tambua sands from new years eve. the resort had a decent new years eve party going when we got there, and we didnt waste time in joining the party!, stayed in two beachfront chalets, rooms have good views, but are quite basic, had to follow up a few times for single beds for the kids, everything & everyone is on island time, though the staff are friendly & trying to help. re transportation, because you are a bit far from town, either use travel desk to hire taxi or wait at the main road for taxi/bus, food & drinks pricing were higher than expected, food is satisfactory, breakfast is included but is very ordinary consisting of papaya,banana,cereal,two pieces of toast each which arrives just when you are about to leave the table!,enough facilities to keep you busy though, such as swimming pool, snorkelling, kayak etc. highly recommend is a day trip to nearby Kula eco park (for kids) and Outrigger resort (for adults & kids), dont forget to pack sunscreen,insect repellant,sun hat & pick up water & provisions from any store on the way from the airport, have a great holiday

Room Tip: if you are not fond of walking ask & follow up for chalets closer to the main building

We enjoyed our time at Tambua Sands. Had a very quiet and restful time which was what we needed. Beautiful singing of Carols woke us on Christmas Day and the added bonus of Father Christmas arriving on a horse was fun. Lovely grounds and swimming pool. The staff were friendly and helpful.

I've stayed at Tambua Sands twice -- most recently in September -- and both times found it to be a perfect getaway from the crowds that make large resorts feel like cruise ships. If falling asleep on remarkably comfortable beds to the sounds of waves crashing on the reef and waking to a Coral Coast sunrise sounds good to you, then Tambua Sands is for you. The pool is kept immaculately clean, the staff are locals who love their jobs, and the rooms are plush and cozy. The restaurant remains underutilised, especially in the mornings, when sometimes it would be nice to be able to order more than complimentary toast, fruit and cereal. I agree with other reviewers -- the best way to enjoy Tambua Sands is to have a car, as it's a wonderful place to return to after exploring Viti Levu.

Room Tip: Bures along the beach are extraordinary.

We stayed there 2 nights in october 2013. Very comfortable cabin. Pretty beach. Restaurant ok. No other food services near unless you have a car. Breakfast included. The price of accomodations were quite reasonable. For some reason cheaper through booking agent than when reserve direct. I would go back again.

I stayed at Tambua for 3 nights.
Our room was nice, simple and a beautiful view of the ocean.
The staff were great, typical of Fiji, everyone was very friendly.
There is no airconditiong in the rooms and it was a little warm at times, however there is a celing fan in the room.
The food at the restaraunt was really nice and well priced.
We did find the the resort was very quiet and not much going on in the evenings. However we did travel outside of peak times.
Next time I go back, I will be happy to stay back at Tambua Sands.

Room Tip: Ask for one with an ocean view.

The resort is very nice and quiet ....great place to relax and unwind...no televisions or telephones... great water views and beaches. Kayaking and snorkelling is great too. We drove to the closest town for either lunch or dinner.... it was wonderful.

Room Tip: water front bures are great.
