Lyall Watt and his team are fantastic and the Castaways Cayman is a rare jewel. I have been here now for 5 days and each day is perfect. If you are looking for a lovely holiday with friends or family - the value for money is beyond compare. The stunning sunrise views from every room along with a mere 20... More

We stayed the first week in August 2014. What a wonderful experience. The property manager of the Castaways Resort was helpful and friendly. There was good communication. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment on the first floor. We cooked in house, in the lovely and fully equipped kitchen. In the morning, we would brew some coffee and enjoy it... More

Modern and stylish rent-from-owner beach front units with the basics provided at very reasonable rate! Nice bed, bath/shower, dinning table with bar between kitchen, living area and full kitchen. The kitchen had basic utensils, dinner wear, and small appliances provided (toaster, coffee pot, blender). Small washer/dryer unit so that you can pack less clothes. You can buy wifi and LD... More

My friends and I just returned from the Castaways and had a wonderful experience. The one bedroom unit had plenty of room for the three of us. The king bed was very comfortable and so was the murphy bed. We cooked some and enjoyed the full kitchen. The resort is very close to the beach and we enjoyed the balcony... More

Much better than a hotel room. Full kitchen. Stayed on the first floor which was literally on the beach. Rooms were good sized. Beach was quiet. The only problems were that the bathrooms were small, and the towels were changed once in a week.

My wife and I just spend the week of June 16 here with our friends from KY. We had a great experience overall and was very happy with Castaways. We chose this place in order to get away from all of the cruise ship crowd and basically had the beach to ourselves right in front of our room which was... More

We spent a week at Castaways with our 3 sons (ages 15, 12 and 5) and had a wonderful time! We like to do our own thing while on vacation and avoid the "tourist traps". We rented the 2 bedroom condo. It had more than enough room for all of us. With the 2 bedroom you get the entire private... More

It was a timeshare room which we rented rather than a hotel room. So maid room clean up was twice a week and the on site restaurant was marginal (and expensive for what you got). The location is on the east end which is a lot quieter than the city end (where the cruse ships dock). The scuba diving and... More

Stayed a week in a 2 bedroom unit. Our AC didn't work the first night we were there so we called the manager Lyle, he said he would send someone to fix it but didn't. My husband had to shut the unit if for 2 hours and restart it. The 2nd night we were there my husband found a giant... More
