My partner and I stayed here for 5 nights. The staff were always so friendly and treated us like guests in their home. The rooms were average, fairly clean but not great until we upgraded to the sea side bure. This was the best decision of the whole trip! Much nicer rooms and and outdoor space really turned the whole...

Bula and thank you for your lovely review of your stay with us at Crusoe's Retreat. We are thrilled to read that you enjoyed your Deluxe SeaSide Bure. Because we are a very isolated resort, there are limited dining options. We do our best to provide a variety of meal choices, ranging from our popular Mongolian BBQ, traditional Fijian Lovo...

Bula Vinaka and thank you so much for your great review of your stay at Crusoe's Retreat. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us, and that you were able to take advantage of some our great scuba diving, located just minutes from our beach. We can't wait for your next visit! Vinaka!

My partner and I spent a week here in January, and absolutely loved it. It's not 5-star, but doesn't claim to be. It's aimed at those who want a relaxing location away from the hustle. A perfect beach with excellent snorkling, swimming and kayaking, or to just quietly chill and relax. Most of the complaints seem to be from people...

We recently stayed at Crusoe Retreat for 10 days with our 18 year old daughter and her friend, in separate Seaside Deluxe Bures (one upgraded on our arrival from a Seaview Deluxe, Vinaka!). Cons: Quite isolated (although may also be a Pro for some) and in hindsight, for the length of our stay a hire car for a few days...

Stayed in a seaside Bure for two nights and purchased the daily meal package. The resort needs serious maintenance and updating. The seaside Bure was well located for shady garden views and easy access through to the beach. The village is located right next door so this was good for gaining insight into Fijian village life. The resort is about...

My Husband and I have just returned from a 6 night stay at Crusoes Retreat and we miss it dearly! Off the beaten track is an amazing location - a place to relax, unwind and de-stress. There are no shops nearby (only a small shop in the resort and one in the village, a 2 min stroll down the beach)....
