“small resort,poor dinning view is good.”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

the resort is just ok, nothing extraordinary. the beach is very reefy. getting in the water is quite impossible, the food was very expensive and not good at all. he staff are not interested in working, the reception girl was quite rude when i asked her about WIFI.
We were staying in deluxe vila, which was just all right, not very clean and no air con.. However the view was great and the garden behind is not bad. This is a good place for family, i saw some children games & sports..

Bula Sonia,

Thank you for your online review. We have noticed that you last stayed at the resort in December 2012. The new management started on the 1st week of May 2013 till to date in which they have made a lot of efforts at the resort.

There has been a lot of changes currently on our service from the reception, restaurant, rooms including all other departments. So far our positive feedback is 90% and our aim is to strive to offer quality service to all our guests that are staying with us.

We highly recommend that you try Tambua Sands the next time you visit Sigatoka.

Sincerely,
Tevita Tuidraki

Stayed for 5 nights..staff and service were outstanding. Rooms were large and clean. Food was excellent. The tour desk has all the tours you can imagine. This is the perfect resort for a quiet and relaxing holiday. This was our 5th trip to Fiji but first time at this resort...we loved it. A big Vinaka to the Management and staff. We will be back.

The resort is so beautiful and relaxing, we couldn't have been any closer to the beach. The bure we stayed in was comfortable and spacious. We loved drinking the coconuts one morning that were freshly chopped down. The best part of Tambua Sands is the staff - everyone was lovely and so welcoming!

We have just returned from a 6 night stay at Tambua Sands and we loved everything about it.
The staff are so friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble for them.
The food is very nice, well presented and reasonably priced.
We loved the Tambua Serenaders who entertained us each night at dinner, the night before we left, they sang us a Fijian Farewell song.
Tambua Sands is excellent value, small, quiet & peaceful with beautiful surroundings and we hope to return there one day.

This is a very nice small property with very friendly staff. We felt like we had our own private beach. The food was excellent and we receive great advice from the staff on what to do and where to visit. We mostly appreciated the quiet and private nature of this smaller resort and would definitely stay there again. The planned bure renovations look to be marvelous and we cannot wait to see the finished product.

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms are best.

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.
