Wow, what an amazing place! Small and intimate and the Bure's are beautiful! Clean, fresh and very friendly. Can't wait to go and visit them again. When we got there we were offered a banana smoothie on the house (our room weren't ready yet). About 20 minutes later when they were done with our room, they took our bags for... More

I booked this place online from the positive reviews. We were travelling as a foursome with a 10 year old, had booked two mango rooms which I had tried to upgrade prior to arrival. One mango room was like a dorm and dirty, closets were broken and shower filthy. Thankfully they gave us one Bure which was beautiful at first... More

My review is mixed as there were great elements but things that also need some attention. It is very secluded, 1.5 hours from Nadi airport and you can get here for a $150 F taxi or a bus from the airport for @$8 F. There are 5 bures/units and we were fortunate to be facing the beach.Our bure didnt have... More

If you're looking for a quiet and relaxing break, away from the crowded resorts on the island, then de vos is ideal. Situated in a quiet nook of Maui Bay, you feel miles away from the main road which travels up and down the Coral Coast. Yet conveniently, you're just a 10 minute walk from a well stocked shop and...

This is situated right on the beach ...perhaps i minute walk. It is separated from the main road by a high wall - so it is very quiet. Kayak & snorkelling gear is provided free - internet is F$10 per week The rooms are good - the resort tiny & very quiet & relaxing - perhaps this doesnt suit some... More

I had a fabulous weekend at de Vos. It's so hidden away that you feel like it's your own private paradise, and you even have your own private beach. The staff at de Vos are so warm and welcoming, they make you feel like you are staying at a friend's house, such a welcome change from big hotel chains. The... More

Overall: warm staff, delicious meals, great spot, beautiful accommodations that are just that little bit rustic. Hidden away and not at all touristy. Felt more like staying at family/friends' holiday resort! Better suited to families with older kids but in saying that, they did go out of their way to accommodate our preschoolers with everything from meals and a room... More

Very relaxing, clean and comfortable rooms, great food with a lot of variety. Staff were excellent and very helpful and obviously happy. Great pool and location was beautiful. But it was very hard to find - a sign out the front is needed.
