We have just stayed at Crusoes for 4 days in a deluxe seaside buree. It was a bit dark inside but we spent our time on the front verandah & wonderful daybed looking across at the water.... what a beautiful view! The buree is rustic and built of Fijian materials and we wanted that as part of our experience. The... More

We stayed here only for one night as one of the places on our trip around the Viti Levu island in FIJI. We thought that the price was too high for what we got. Everything is quite expensive in Fiji but for ~145 AUS$ per night I would have expected the rooms to be better quality. Or if not that... More

Bula and thanks so much for taking the time to write a review of your brief stay at Crusoe's Retreat. One of the things we so very much pride ourselves on is being a traditional, Fijian beach resort, offering a truly cultural holiday experience. Unfortunately, your very brief stay with us (only one night) did not allow you to truly... More

Very quiet and peaceful retreat. A little tired and faded. Pool needs a good clean. Rooms spacious but basic and rustic. Food good. Dive shop excellent. Wifi slow. Happy hour is an annoyingly small reduction in price. Better not to bother?

We had bid on 4 nights at a Fiji resort at a Charity Auction, and won the auction. When we got details of the Resort, we realized it was a 3.5 star resort, which we would not normally stay in, but the photos of the Deluxe Seaside Burre looked nice, with modern bathrooms, so decided to fly over and stay....

Look, lets just start by saying that this resort does not advertise itself as 5 star hotel. Its not. It is however filled with local staff that always have a smile on their face, and "Bula!" echoes through the grounds of the resort. The views, absolutely to die for. The sea like pool water, clear and so much to explore.... More

To get to the resort, either you can use a bus service or use a taxi (taxi is around 30 mins quicker). We were there for just under a week and although its a little drive from the airport (as with any other resort), you certainly are made to feel welcome by Atu and all the other staff upon arrival....

Although we had been upgraded for our two nights stay and we were extremely grateful. I must say there are alot of areas in which the resort can improve on. Firstly, although the rooms are very standard they are cozy. However, i was upset that the kettle wasn't working and there was also a shower head that seemed to be... More

I had the best week in Crusoe's with my boyfriend. Stunning location. Staff is friendly and helpful (thank you to Lai, Shaeed and Kaleesi, you rock!!). The bure was 10 metres from the ocean, super clean and romantic. I would back again.

My BF and I had a really nice holiday at Crusoe’s. This is a really fun, quirky resort. It is not 5 star, but that is not the experience we were looking for.
