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.

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.

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... More

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!

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... More

One of the cheapest resorts on the island. Close to Sigatoka to do your shopping and Villisite's for meals. Nice and tranquil location with "garden view" bures having a bit of a sea view too. Staff take care of the resort very well. Sea kayak are available for free so you can take them for a spin during high tide.... More

I enjoyed my stay at Tambua. It's private and staff are friendly. A place to spend quality time with the family. I was glad they had no tv because kids were on the beach enjoying each others company rwithout having their eyes glued to a screen. Its simple and that is the best part about it.
