We had a beach front villa, but the tree off the deck blocked the view and we were unable to change rooms. It is a beautiful property with excellent snorkeling right off the beach - beware of squishy sea cucumbers. A new general manager was starting, and the staff was not always helpful, leaving us to book activities on our... More

The resort is split into two - on the side that we stayed on, we had to walk across the beach to get to the restaurant. There is no lighting in the dark and not particularly pleasant if it is raining. The room was comfortable, we even managed to use the kitchen a couple of times to cook snacks (fried... More

We were upgraded to the absolute beachfront which were exceptional. Had all the amenities we needed. They have the best dinner show on the island, however try and get front row seats as last minute they changed the venue and we went from being at the front to being at the back and could hardly see a thing. But food... More

Tamanu was the perfect spot for us. We stayed in one of the older studio bungalows, #2, and we loved it! The kitchen was great for when we wanted to cook our own meals and the fridge lent ample space for everything we needed. The A/C ran ice cold and the room was made spotless every day. We loved out...

We stayed in a studio which was fine except there was nowhere to put our clothes, which seems odd for a 4 star hotel. The closet had 4 hangers and there was a small drawer. in the bedside cabinets and that was it. the room had an extra bed so that's where we put our clothes, fortunately we only brought... More

Pleasant villas right on beach front with excellent snorkelling experience - no currents and plenty of fish. Staff OK. Hired a car to explore the island and ate a different restaurant each night. Cafe Coru got our tick for best coffee, food and service on the island and we went there every day for lunch. Giant clam snorkelling was the... More

Great place for our honeymoon. We stayed in the one bedroom beachfront which is an absolute must for the stunning sunsets and privacy. Rooms very clean and tidy and the ladies throughout the resort will sort everything you need. Rooms are a little old but still very nice.

I just had a really nice few days at Tamanu Beach. The beach front room was top shelf with separate bedroom and living areas with a great deck leading straight onto the beach. Staff were ridiculously friendly and nothing seemed to be too much trouble for them. The restaurant was more than capable of turning out delicious meals with enough... More
