We've stayed at a number of different places when we come to shop & have medical check ups in Suva thru the years. We've always enjoyed dinner at Sea Salt restaurant here at the hotel but we've never stayed upstairs. We found a very reasonable deal online and were anxious to try De Vos (the old JJ's) on the Park.... More

You will never find a more broken down and dirty hotel anywhere in the world. The bed smelt like it had never been changed, the bathroom was filthy, the tv and air conditioning did not work as well as most of the lights. There are signs around asking that you please excuse the state of the hotel and calling it... More

Apparently the De Vos is the old YMCA or something like that. It is pretty worn down, the elevator is VERY old & clunky, the TV was unwatchable etc. BUT the service was very friendly (however if you want your room made up you should probably ask as they don't seem to automatically do every room each day), the beers...

Bula, Thankyou for your review it was great you took the time to write. It can be difficult to get lots of reviews when we are so small and most of our guests are long term. You are correct the building is the YWCA building over 40 years old and 6 storey old fashioned structure. But as you stated it... More

If you are seeking accommodation in Suva you will quickly learn there is very little available and what there is is overpriced. We stayed for one night and it certainly failed to wow us with it's facilities. If it's pristine cleanliness, new(ish) white linens, peace and quiet and stylish interior you are seeking do not stay here. Rather you will... More

This was our home for a week. Was a good place, rooms were good, air conditioning too. Very friendly, happy and helpful staff. Prices were good, came with free breakfast too. Location is very good and pretty central to Suva CBD which makes exploring even easier. Taxi rank very close by too

I have stayed regularly at De Vos on the Park. It is centrally located and I find the staff friendly and attentive. The rooms are spacious and clean and generally satisfactory with some minor maintenance issues. But it is clearly value for money when compared to similar accommodation around Suva.
