This was the third year running we stayed at Castaways Resort and everything was as we expected. Perfect. The staff are all friendly, professional and extremely helpful. The room was clean and well set out but it was the spectacular view of one of the best beaches around that stands out. We had breakfast, dinner and an afternoon snack at... More

The reception area and bar restaurant are wow due to the open spaces and view of the beach and palm trees. Accommodation is pretty basic, but if not expecting too much in the first place it's pretty good. We had a family room which was so badly designed with a spa bathroom area without doors in main bedroom, so we... More

We were referred here by local residents. Staff on every level were excellent. Really seemed to be bright and interested in what we wanted. Mission Beach is beautiful. Take an early morning walk along it. Breakfasts very good. Pricing system (included for continental; $10 for a la carte hot) was sensible. More hotels should have this easy to understand system....

As family of the bride, we booked the Beach house and it was perfect! It was suitable for a pre-wedding gathering the night before, plenty of room for bride & bridesmaids to prepare on the day, a great view of the gathering guests and a simple walk to the ceremony. The reception venue was simple but elegant, with a great... More

Our two bedroom unit at Castaways looked out directly over the pristine 25m lap pool, down to the palm trees on the edge of the beach and out across to Dunk Island. The staff were always helpful and cheerful who seemed to really enjoy their jobs and interacting with guests. I asked for recommendations on things to do and they... More

When we arrived, they had got our booking wrong and we had to wait a few hours for them to find us a room. We also got locked out of the room for different reasons on each of the 3 days we were there. Apart from that, beautiful location!
