We enjoyed a five-night getaway from everything break at Crusoes Retreat. This place is very isolated so it was ideal for us - many said it was too quiet for them. I guess you can hire a car but we enjoyed the isolation. Big steps up or down to Bure so don't go here if you try to avoid steps.... More

Bula Victoria and thanks so much for taking the time to write a review of Crusoe’s Retreat. It was lovely meeting you, and we are so happy to read that you enjoyed your stay with us.

Compared to other places we stayed in Fiji we were disappointed with this resort, especially as it was the most expensive place we stayed at during our 3 weeks in Fiji. The grounds and views are stunning, the beach is too....the highlight of our week was the snorkelling trip on the boat, the guys that took us out were brilliant... More

We've just returned from a relaxing stay at Crusoes Retreat where we stayed in a deluxe seaside bure. The resort is quite isolated if you don't have car which we did not. However, Crusoes can arrange for you to get to wherever you'd like to go. We went to Suva one day for the Hibiscus Festival, about a 90minte drive... More

Bula Vinaka and thank you so much for your review of Crusoe's Retreat. We are so pleased to read that you enjoyed your relaxing holiday at Crusoe's. We agree - Crusoe's is a lovely, isolated, quiet resort, away from the hub-bub of some of the Coral Coast. This is what helps set us apart as a relaxed, traditional Fijian beach... More

My family and I visited Crusoe's back in July. We had the most amazing time there-the beautiful if somewhat shy staff gave our family a true sense of Fijian culture, pride and hospitality, It was as if we had become a part of a community and belonging from the moment we arrived. We took 3 adult children with us who... More

No room ready until next day, Atu did apologize for the error which was fine, once moved into our new room the view was amazing..... but we had no kettle, no shower curtain, no hot water,... More

Bula Vinaka Karen- Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay at Crusoe’s Retreat.

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.

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
