We made a return trip to Crusoe's after ten years, and had a fantastic welcome with a drink and ham sandwiches. We were very pleased to find that some of the staff we made friends with ten years ago were still there, there seemed though, to be a little something missing. A trip to Fiji is really a trip to...

Our first trip to Fiji and the view as we travelled over the hills and down the driveway to Crusoes was nothing short of amazing. Easily the best view we saw for all our travels. Great (hidden) location. Quiet and relaxing with friendly local staff. For those that was to relax, read a book and venture no further from their... More

Crusoe's is indeed beautiful and the views are wonderful. Sadly, this was its main attraction for us. The staff were very polite and quietly friendly, but lacked the enthusiasm for life that seems to be the Fijian way. "Bula" had been replaced by a more formal Good morning" or "Good afternoon" which I found quite sad. The hotel does not... More

We spent 7 nights at Crusoe's Retreat in July - it was a great week of total relaxation.. Stayed in an Ocean View Bure - the view was amazing and the walk up and down the hill to the dining room/beach was good to combat the good food eaten regularly. Happy hour was always a hit even with the kids... More

We spent our holiday at Crusoe's Retreat in June\July, with my wife and 18 month old toddler daughter for 12 days. We stayed in the Sea Side Bure\bungalow, which for a young toddler\family is perfect as there is a large lawn area in between the Bure and the beach. The lawn area has plenty of room for any kids to... More

This little gem of a resort, Crusoe's Retreat, was just the place for our winter getaway. Having only 28 bures, one quickly becomes part of the small holiday- making crowd; it doesn't take long to feel relaxed and at home. Happy Hour at the poolside bar soon became like a gathering of old friends. The sea front bures look out... More

I'm so pleased I chose Crusoes to celebrate my 50th bday, where we arrived as guests & left knowing we had become friends. Hidden amongst stunning well groomed tropical gardens overlooking a beautiful beach fringed with coconut palms. We enjoyed 10 days of relaxation & fun. The facilities & organised activities did not disappoint. Overall, a very memorable birthday. It... More
