Such a great location and friendly staff. The food in general is good but a little pricey for a beach bar.You get discount if staying at Tranquility Bay.Happy hour is from 4.30 for 2 hours and sometimes followed by two for price of one. Busy at this time and for sunsetting.

We are used to expensive beach restaurants but this one is really pushing it! The service is so slow, the food average and the tip is already in the bill. We were forgotten about on 3 occasions (I suppose this is our fault for going back!) The waitress kind of laughed and said,

Its a nice place for a nice bite in this beach. Avoid the cantina next to it, you will get rip off. Castaways offers some fresh fish options, we had fresh clams and fresh mahi mahi. We enjoyed the meal. However It is pricey.

Ate at this restaurant 2 times in our stay. The first time I had the jerk shrimp (not their best dish. Each bite felt like the raw spices were thrown on the shrimp after the fact) and lobster (very tasty). Was not crazy about the price, but I was on vacation so I splurged. The second time, I tried the... More

Absolutely lovely place on the beach. I didn't eat in the restaurant but had some cocktails from the bar and they were great. Good quality drinks at reasonable prices with really really lovely, helpful staff. I would 100% return to Castaways for a relaxed day on the beach!
