From the outside this looks like a beautiful resort. Close up, it is very grubby, we had ants throughout our room/bathroom and I saw a few cockroaches, it is near the rainforest so bugs i can forgive. Every glass panel/window was dirty and needed a good clean. For $250 a night, it was definatly not worth it. The view was... More

We recently checked into castaways and were WOW'd by the renovations. The bar and restaurant is fantastic, the staff incredibly friendly and efficient and the prawn linguini was the best we have ever had! Room was gorgeous with a great view out to the beach, comfortable for family of four. We will definitely be back very soon!

Stayed here for one night. It is a fairly small hotel with all rooms beach facing. The view is spectacular and we would stay here again purely for that. Room had small flaws - paint chipping and rust but I guess that is to be expected so close to the ocean. Mission beach seems to have recovered ok from yasi.... More

We'd spent a week in Cairns & I really wanted to see how this area was doing after the devastating cyclones of 18 months ago. I e-mailed to see how busy they were and was advised they were very busy and that if I wanted to ensure I had a bed I better book soon, so I did. They did... More

We stayed at Castaways to attend a wedding so we did get a discounted rate. We upgraded to a Coral Sea Resort Room which was lovely and the view was superb. It has a lovely balcony with day bed great for relaxing and reading a book. The bathroom was tired but I believe they are in the process of refurbishing... More

This hotel isnt worth staying. Also is the place. If you like to have nothing around you during your stay excepting for hotel guests of the same hotel, you are in the right spot. We expected a bit more ongoing life here. Well, we had a lot of life, but that were only hundreds of bugs in front of your... More

After looking at their nicely done website, we decided we'd spend the weekend here. We were pretty disappointed to find what we paid for got us a pretty standard motel room (i.e. queen and single bed) and and tired looking bathroom, that if you left the light on for more than half an hour at night, was covered in bugs...

I actually thought it was decent but we got a very good rate. If you pay anything like normal/rack rates I can see that it wouldn't seem like a good deal which is why I have given it a 3. Based on what I paid (which as I said, was a very good rate) I'd say 4. Its quite an... More

We didn't stay at this resort but had lunch at its Bibesia Beach Club. It was very very good. We had the kids and the waitress was very efficient and professional. Their meals came out first, which was great as they were hungry and whiny. Their fish and chips were delicious and cans with a serve of peas - a... More

For location, this is a stunning resort. The room we had overlooked Mission Beach just a few metres away. The public areas of Castaways are very stylish and clean but the corridors were dirty and our room was dark and appeared tired. The furnishings were dark and the bathroom suite was grey which added to an overall grubby feeling. Castaways... More
