Escape back in time
If you want authentic Fiji hospitality and isolation Crusoe Retreat is a beautiful resort and peaceful place to relax. It is a long drive to get there so Taxis are more expensive and to go anywhere else while staying there will cost more. We rented a car and figured it was worth it to have the freedom to see other areas when we wished to do so. The resort grounds are beautiful and they have beach and rocks but very shallow snorkeling. The food menu was limited but they try to accommodate but over a weeks period one gets tired of the same. It is a long drive to any other restaurant or resort. The rooms are nice and clean but only a bed and chair and small refrigerator. The help are very friendly but the service is very slow at meal time and limited choices.

Hidden Gem
Amazing little resort which to be honest is hard to beat on the Coral Coast when you take in the prices, the location and bures. I'm reluctant to talk it up as we're been going there for 4 years now and want it to remain a secret!

4/10 Fair

It was fine except for the cell service is not good at that location and their wifi was not very good. The staff were great though.

Expectations managed, good stay
My expectations were managed, having read other reviews. I booked the Deluxe Seaside #1 and the air conditioning didn’t work and I didn’t have hot water. Everything is as dated and worn as other reviewers noted. On the plus side, the staff were friendly and the drinks were tropical and we had a pretty great stay. Good launch point for the Upper Navua River trip.

Great location, quiet and peaceful but food very expensive for mediocre choice and quality. We had $70 taken from our room while at dinner in sight of the room. Complaint to management resulted in no follow up

8/10 Very good

Beautiful location, very authentically Fijian. Accommodation clean and comfortable, but a little tatty around the edges. Prefect for relaxing and unwinding. Food good quality but limited choice - not a problem for us though. A little remote if looking to explore local area.

gorgeous and budget friendly
Here are things that we were not prepared for based on reviews: 1) No cash policy. Everything is charged to the room and you sign vouchers throughout. There is a 3.5% charge for credit cards upon checkout Happy hour drinks are only $2 FJD cheaper. 2) Do not underestimate mosquito repellant. Crusoes is truly "in the bush". 3) Rent a car if you're comfortable driving left sided. Most aussie did. Otherwise accept that you're in a very remote location and stay on site. 4) Wifi was included with our package and we spent 3 days w/o it. The woman who checked us in (at 5pm on a Thursday, and she was the ONLY staff member to not wear a name tag throughout our 6 days) did not provide us with a wifi password and did not even tell us it was available. She also didnt tell us that the ONLY Kava ceremony was a few hours after our check in , so we missed it. She simply gave us a small, gross "Welcome drink" and our keys. She seemed very uninterested in us. On the bright side, we told the staff member named Gary this and he arranged a kava ceremony in his personal home in the village and drove us to Suva the next day. He was very friendly and so knowledgeable throughout the drive. Alcoholic drinks were delicious and fairly priced ($17-19 FJD). I ended up drinking more than I predicted. Kalessi was welcoming and always friendly. She was a joy to chat with during dinner. Joana was very helpful when checking out. We were charged for a buffet dinner w/o knowing the price, she fixed it!
