Crusoe's Retreat's motto is "You arrive as a guest and leave as a friend". And how true that is. The management and staff were warm and friendly; the service great; the setting spectacular; and the atmosphere warm and inviting. Not five star accommodation however the authentic feel and excellent food more than compensated. I will definitely go back to enjoy more Fijian time. Vinaka Crusoe's!

Crusoe's Retreat is described as "Fiji's best kept secret". A true description, and for selfish reasons I'd like to keep it that way. I think though that everyone in the world deserves to spend some time at Crusoe's. To get back in touch with your soul, your groove, your mojo or whatever it is that makes you human. We went for a week and stayed for THREE weeks. Narelle and Don were fabulous, funny, and I hope now to be able to call them friends. We are going back at Easter for the sun, the sea and most importantly the laughs and to meet up with the great people of Fiji who gave so generously of their hospitality.

Arrived home safely after another relaxing holiday at Crusoe's. Just wanted to thank you for the excellent diving that I experienced. On the three occasions that I have been to Crusoe's I have been diving. December 2005 - my husband and I came for our first visit and I went for my very first dive - it was fabulous. September/October 2009 - having had such a wonderful time in 2005 my husband and I bought our family of 14 back to Crusoe's where several of us went for several dives - again fabulous. March/April 2010 - my daughter and I came back for a quick break and I again went diving which I just loved. The one constant thing is that the diving is always brilliant. You have a great team that you have trained and should I return to Crusoe's I will definitely be looking forward to diving again. Thanks Don for such a great time.
We stayed at Crusoe's for three nights, then left, only to come back and stay for another week! We absolutely loved it there and in a nutshell it is a brilliant place to stay if you want to experience the real Fiji. The resort isn't as flash as the others nearby, but it has the most amazing friendly staff, beautiful beaches and gardens and enough activities to get you through to happy hour! It is close to the local village which we were lucky enough to be invited to one night, an experience never to be forgotten. The whole place is amazing, the place is really a slice of paradise. We will definitely be back.

Safely back home, although reluctantly. We are soooo glad we chose Crusoe's above all the others offered to us, and it really was an instinctive thing, but we believe you have something magical happening there.

Better by far than we hoped, hard to tear ourselves away & have left some of our hearts here. We’ll be back for longer next time.
