Check your invoice.!!!!!!!!!! We were charge for service that we paid cash for. We were charge full price for meals for kids after we got written confirmation from Julie that children under 15 is half price. Heaps of e-mails and they just ignore it. Management is not on the same page as owner. We had a rocky booking. Had to... More

Easy to arrange booking and enquiries thanks to Julie's efficient service. Five days of total rest and relaxation, could have spent much longer. The Devos staff made us feel like old friends straight away and totally spoilt us. We loved being able to interact with the staff,the resort is small enough to really get to know the local staff and... More

We enjoyed our stay at this intimate resort very much. The lovely location , direct beachfront and beautiful shoreline made for lovely walks along the beachfront, dipping anytime into the sea and then into the hotels pool only meters away. The staff are wonderful, the food and attention was excellent. We had a few issues with insect screens etc but... More

We travelled from the Airport by bus for $8.50 (ask to stop at Maui Bay!) which took around 2 hours. Although a little hard to find at the end of the gravelly private road, we were welcomed warmly. We were upgraded for free from a Mango view room to one of the spacious Bures with two large beds, lounge area,... More

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...
