My husband and I spent a month in Vava'u, Tonga. We experienced several accommodations in town (Neiafu), and away from it. Mystic Sands was by far the best for friendliness, reliability, cleanness, and quality service. Super relaxing experience. Even though there was full occupancy when we were there, still felt like we had the place mostly to ourselves. It was...

An absolutely fabulous experience! Mystic Sands management and staff clearly take pride in providing their guests with a friendly relaxing stay that you will repeat many times over. The atmosphere is quiet, the rooms and grounds clean and tidy, the beach excellent for views day and night, and wonderful swimming off the dock. The reef fish around the small coral...

The room was OK (renovations started just after I left), but the bed was very comfortable. The owner is a real sweetheart -- when I was no longer staying there, he heard that I was out training in the rain one day and came to offer me a ride home. The couple who manage the resort are also extremely friendly...

Incredible view of the little house! I like the fact they offered kayaks and snorkel for free. The service is great, but the breakfast could be better. At least have real coffee and not the instantaneous ones from the packs you can find everywhere.

Thank you for the review and for coming to stay with us there at Mystic Sands. Breakfast can always be better and we keep on working on that continually, the challenge of course is to balance quality and price :-) The coffee we serve with the breakfast is locally grown and roasted fresh coffee beans in a french press (plunger...

Mystic Sands is the best place to stay whist on mainland Vavau, no doubt about it! We had such an incredible stay here and the breakfasts brought to the room every morning were extra special. The location is exquisite and we can't wait to go back in the very near future!

This is the second time we have visited Mystic Sands with our family, since our first time was amazing, and this experience was even better!

My expectations have been governed by the price. That was a mistake, because what you get are adjoining beach huts looked after by a Tongan family That's ok but it is not in line with the price. However there is another reality and once you accept it you will like the place and enjoy yourself. Vavau has a commercial life...

We are a family of 5 with a 10 year old boy and twin 7 year old girls. This is our second time at Mystic as our girls celebrated their first Bday here as well! We all absolutely love it here. Crystal snorkel and swim right off the beach and safe for the kids. Kayak, fishing right off the dock!...

It's like living in your own little home at Mystic Sands.

We stayed as a group of 7 people in the amazing 2 bedroom house and 2 beachfront units. The house is large and open with a huge verandah at front and incredible views.
