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

Crusoe's is one of those places you can't place words on - it was absolutely magical! From the moment you arrive, to the time you leave, you feel like family! The rooms were great, staff were SPECTACULAR, the free activities were off the hook! We celebrated my (now) fiancés birthday (the cake was delicious!) and celebrated our engagement. We will... More

What a wonderful hidden treasure this little retreat is. The most friendly hard working staff (and manager) who catered to a personal touch. We arrive on the Monday to a cold drink and a smile that was met with personal service. The resort is located next to a small village and if you wish you can help out the village... More

What an incredible holiday we had ( 2 Adults and 2 Kids) not sure where to even start about how great everything was.... The staff were magic and they made our holiday just as much as swimming, sunning, eating and drinking. If you want a "drop and Flop " resort this is it, lovely and quiet, yet enough people to...

My husband and stayed at Crusoe;s Retreat for 17 nights in May 2014. What a mistake!! I have to use a walking stick for mobility, and this Resort did not accommodate this at all.
