We stayed for 3 nights in early October. The rooms are clean and tidy, great view from them all to the beach and a good location for the hotel. But... I think the term 'resort' is a bit over the top! Castaways is a nice clean hotel. It is one room with a bathroom and an empty bar fridge. It... More

Fantastic location, great (but pricey) cocktails and relaxed atmosphere. However the ground floor rooms are not very private, they are more motel-style with chairs outside the room on the grass, whereas the first and second floor rooms have private balconies. Also the ground floor rooms don't have security screens which is disappointing as you have to shut the doors at... More

Dear "total relaxation" Thank you for your nice feedback here on Tripadvisor. Great to hear that you enjoyed your stay and the surroundings. In regards to the rooms I can let you know that we went through a light refurbishment of a large number of our rooms in June 2014 and are planning on moving on to the remaining rooms... More

We stayed for four nights at Castaways as part of a wedding party. Castaways certainly is in an amazing setting and access to the beach is wonderful. Sadly, you feel that they are trading off this feature and the hotel is definitely lacking in other areas. A continental breakfast was included in the room rate but was pretty basic. However... More

Nice location. We came here from a small boutique hotel with no children in it and initially found it crowded and full of noisy children. But we slowly adjusted and started to relax and enjoy it. The room was clean and reasonably comfortable. There is a metal strip around the bath which gave me a cracking bruise behind my knee... More

We are a very popular resort for a wide variety of guests and during school holidays we are of course particular popular with the families. I am glad you still managed to relax and enjoy your stay and the beautiful views however. More

We only had one night here or I would have probably checked out. While the resort area, bar and pool were really nice and right on the beach, our room was really dated and not at all welcoming. We had a one bedroom spa apartment. The kitchen and living areas very unwelcoming and a big open plan bathroom clearly designed... More

Great place to stay. Friendly staff and good food. Rooms comfortable with great views of the beach. Don't expect 5 star this is a laid back very clean resort that is relaxed and friendly. Besides the beach there is a pool with some rooms opening directly onto the pool. They make great cocktails.

My husband and I have stayed at Castaways 5 times since 2010 and we love it. It is right on the beach and the views are amazing, sunrise is quite an experience to be had. Think long walks on the beach, cocktails by the pool and tropical rainforest walks and that is Castaways. The rooms have been updated since our... More
