My wife and I stayed for 3 days and besides a late pick up/drop off at the airport everything else went perfectly. You couldn't ask for a nicer location and the lush gardens are a delight for the eyes. Food and drinks were good, as was the snorkeling and the weather. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants... More

In 2011 my now husband proposed to me on the beach at crusoes, the staff were wonderful and threw us a small party at dinner that night, complete with traditional Fijian engagement ceremony and cake. We were so impressed with all aspects of our stay that in 2013 we returned the day after our wedding in Australia for our honeymoon!... More

The beauty of this little resort on the far side of Fiji is it's stunning location and the incredibly friendly atmosphere created by staff and guests. Situated on a lovely beach, surrounded by Palm fronds and a beautifully cultivated garden, the resort has basic to nice rooms (standard/deluxe) and lovely common areas near the pool and for meals. But really... More

We decided to break up our flight from Sydney to LA by stopping Fiji for 4 nights, to recover from our vacation.
