Fantastic value for your dollar, we really loved it and the staff were fantastic. Continental Breakfast was included and whilst this was good the inclusion of pastries and perhaps some eggs would have made it fantastic.
All the staff went that extra mile to make sure you enjoyed yourself and made you feel extremely welcome. The amenities included kayaks and organised walks, good to keep off the weght. The beach Bura was very clean and comfortable and almost on the beach. Terrific spot.

Room Tip: try for a single beach bura, we stayed at no.5.

The staff are lovely and just so friendly. The meals were very nice and lots of choices. the bures were a little dated but clean and tidy. There are two tour operators at Tambua sands and both are very helpful. We would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Well worth the extra few dollars for a beach front bure

This resort is well away from it all so you definitely need to have your transport organised.

There's a series of bungalows right on the water's edge. You can swim and use the kayaks for free. And there's also a decent pool if you choose. The restaurant is great and includes wifi.

Stayed: August 2013

The location is lovely and you can relax on the beach or you can snorkel and kayak once the tide is in a bit. The view is beautiful, even from the Garden Bures - which do have some noise from the traffic passing on the road, but you really don't notice it that much and of a night we could only really hear the sound of the ocean. If we were to return, we would book an Ocean Bure, or even one of the newer bures with the plunge pool (these looked lovely!). It is a fairly inexpensive resort to stay at, so of course it isn't as fancy as other resorts, but it is peaceful, the rooms are clean and comfortable, and it is quite easy to catch the bus into Sigatoka to go to the market or shops. The restaurant food is fairly nice, but it is the staff who really make the resort wonderful. Everyone that we encountered was so friendly and helpful, and the kids really enjoyed all of the activities, including frog and crab races and just kicking a ball on the beach with Sunni. Would certainly stay here again if we returned to Fiji.

I don't even want to give this place one star. It was the worst place in two months that we stayed in in Fiji! Horrible staff and terrible rooms. Our room smelt like cigarette smoke and was very dirty. Never will I visit here again. Stay away!

Dear Aimee P,

For the benefit of our potential guests in relation to the comments regarding the resort and our wonderful team here at Tambua Sands that continually deliver fantastic experiences for our valuable guests, please note that all our rooms at the resort are non-smoking rooms and we do inspect all our arrival rooms before a new arrival checks in.

As many of our previous guests have placed feedback that expresses their positive experience with us, we have also reviewed your comments with our small team and they have no recollection of your stay with us.

As we question the motivation for this feedback, and as this comment is extremely damaging on this very powerful social media portal, we have proceeded by lodging a complaint with Trip Advisor, as this comment is non specific, and non-representative for the experiences that our guests have been experiencing.

Thank You.

We loved staying at Tambua Sands, it was so relaxing and one of the best parts was that the place had a real 'Fijian' feeling unlike a number of other resorts. Staff were very friendly and knew us all by name. Choose an Ocean View Bure, views were magic and rooms were spacious, clean and everything we needed for a great stay. Great pool for adults. The locals were very friendly too, including the local dogs who make great tour guides. Go snorkelling with Ross lots of fish, but decline the reef walk (it is so damaging!). Had lots of fun with Sunny and the frog and crab racing nights. Highly recommend a stay here, about 5 nights is perfect - catch the local bus to Sigatoka and walk around the rocks for hours at low tide.

Room Tip: Choose Ocean View Bure, number 10 was great
