When you work in hotels/travel planning a holiday can be a bit stressful, like everyone I have high expectations of a holiday. When planning for Fiji it was hard to choose the right accommodation/island to stay at. I had lots of advice from colleagues and friends - but to be honest it made the choice harder. In the end we...

Just back from a week on Castaway. Our 4th visit here and still a great place. There were more food options then when we were here last. Lots of variety and the fish was fantastic. The staff were as friendly and helpful as ever - thank you to Emeri for looking after us at dinner. Kids club staff were great... More

Zulus12, we just love it when our treasured returnees give us wonderful feedback - vinaka. I guess that's why you've stayed with us 4 times already. Its fantastic to hear that you believe Castaway was even better this time. Our Chef has those fishermen trained well to come to Castaway and sell us their fresh fish before they offer the... More

Our family of 4 (boys aged 7 & 9) stayed 7 nights on Castaway Island during the Easter Holidays. The resort was absolutely perfect and we could not have been happier with our choice to stay there. Even though it was school holidays the place did not feel busy at all. Often you wouldn't even see another person as you... More

Mark A, you sound like you really did have the perfect family holiday. Its wonderful to read you made great use of all the activities on offer too and created some wonderful family memories at the same time. I guess it helps when all the non motorised water sports are free too. We agree about the quiet side of the... More

We have tried the mainland and another island but nothing compares to Castaway. We have just returned from our 4th visit to Castaway Island and as always we had a wonderful time. This year our wee girl decided to give kids club a go and she absolutely loved it. The kids club team are fantastic. Castaway is heaven on earth,... More

This is our second trip to Castaway and I don't understand the criticism. The staff are very friendly, happy and helpful, the position is beautiful, and we love the fact that there is no TV etc. We have a gadget free holiday and the children have a lot of fun remembering how to entertain themselves the old fashioned way: out...

We stayed in an island bure for a week in September last year. The island is beautiful - picture perfect but you can only really swim with kids in the beach you see in the pictures. The bures are nice - there is no tv so my husband missed seeing the news although there is wifi and most people seemed... More

Thank you Brisbane 15 for your feedback. It doesn't sound like your time at Castaway Island was as enjoyable as it should have been and for this we are sincerely sorry.

My husband and I chose Castaway for our honeymoon destination and I cant rate the Island, resort and staff highly enough. We stayed for one week in a beautiful ocean view bure (6/ono) which was cosy, private, traditional yet comfortably modern. All the bure's are discreetly sheltered and mostly surrounded by lush tropical bush and immaculately kept gardens. The thatched... More

Bula and vinaka Kiwikel2014 for your wonderful review. The Dolphin Safari was Castaway's wedding gift to you and your new husband. Glad you enjoyed the experience. We appreciate your very honest and well written account of how the pristine island environment blends with our resort facilities and is further enhanced by the warmth and genuine hospitality of the Castaway family....

Our family (10 and 11 year old boys) had an incredible time at Castaway Island for Spring Break in early April 2014 for 4 days / 3 nights. We flew all night from Southern California, then took the 2 hour boat and arrived to our new paradise for the next 4 days. We knew hardly anyone who had been to... More

We had a great Spring Break week 3/30 to 4/6 with our family of 5 from Pleasanton CA at Castaway Island Resort. Our oceanside Bure on the Sorth Beach (no. 43) was small but sufficient. They are more suited to 3 or 4 people, but that fact that they let a family of 5 cram in was fantastic (1 King... More

Bula Emcfall We love welcoming our friends from America and we are so glad your experience was worth the few extra hours flying time. The South Pacific Islands are very different to Hawaii as you found. Small, pristine, barely inhabited and another world away from your hometown.
