This is a niiiice place that sits right on the beach. I'm pretty sure every room looks straight out onto the beach (and across to the islands). Staff are friendly. Lots of chairs under the palm trees, beautiful infinity pool and really nice dining/common area with a relaxed and somewhat luxurious feel. Buffet breakfast is the bare minimum, otherwise I... More

We only stayed one night as were heading elsewhere but we were delighted with the lovely setting. We arrived in the dark and in the morning were greeted with a lovely view of the pool and beach. The excellent service in the restaurants as also appreciated .

Dear "Very nice" Darkness really do hide a lot and especially here as it can get really dark. I am glad to hear that you were pleasantly surprised when the sun came up and that you fully enjoyed your stay with us. Please come back and stay a little longer next time. More

Great location on the beach, and very good value for money. Rooms on the ocean side have a very nice view.We enjoyed and extended our stay to 5 days. Restaurant is not bad too, but if you prefer you can also try those available at a short distance in Mission Beach

Thanks to the awesome staff, we had an amazing, albeit short romantic getaway. Highly recommend the cocktails and the seafood in the restaurant. The room was perfect, especially the day bed. Can't wait to go back.

Our family from all over Qld, NT, Vic & SA stayed at Castaways last weekend where we celebrated Mum's 90th birthday. We had a dinner on Saturday night for 32 people and the waitress allocated to look after our group did the most amazing job. The food was fantastic. The breakfast and bar staff were efficient and friendly. Our room... More
