Liked the location and isolation. Really disliked the fact that extremely loud and unruly outdoor partying by two large groups who also stayed at the resort, we're permitted. This happened on three nights while we were there: till 1.30 am, 4.30 am and 2.30 am. Also the prices of meals and drinks were exorbitant. A A

Wonderful relaxing stay with very friendly staff. The food was a little disappointing. We would have had to have a menu option on buffet nights as we were not big eaters and the buffet was very expensive. Saying that the staff did go out of their way to accommodate us when they could. The property is quite run down. Kayaks leaked and the snorkelling gear was pretty average. But in all a wonderful relaxing place. We will be back.

Super friendly and amazing location!

Pros: Great location, very clean and amazing view from restaurant.
The staff at Crusoe's Retreat were super friendly and really helped us to understand life in Fiji. The villa was right on the beach with an amazing view of the lagoon. Free activities including snorkelling, kayaking and nature tour were outstanding and lots of fun! We would love to bring our kids back next time!

Made feel very Welcome

Pros: The staff made us feel like family and bent over backwards to accommodate our needs.
Cons: Maybe modernise the facilities a little, but not so much as it takes away from the relaxed atmosphere.
Location: Would like to have had the opportunity to maybe go fishing/diving out of the resort.
The whole Crusoes Retreat experience was very positive. The staff are welcoming and very friendly, the bures were well maintained, clean and comfortable, the restaurant had a delicious selection to choose from and the social activities were fun. Will definitely return.
