We recently spent 4 days at Castaway before heading to Aitutaki. The owners and staff (particularlly Michelle, Paul and Liz) were amazingly helpful and knowledgeable, nothing was too much trouble. We arrived at the airport at 1.30 am and were greeted with Leis made of fresh flowers and transported to Castaway. The room was fantastic, great bathroom, HOOOOGE bed and great cooking facilities. The room overlooked the pool ad bar area but was still very secluded and given that this is a 'no kids' resort, a very relaxing and peaceful place to stay. Beach towels are available as is snorkelling gear and there's a great little beach bar open late afternoon. The sea infront of Castaway has been cleared of rocks and this is possibly one of the only places that you can actually swim and snorkel as opposed to paddle and peer! There's a fantastic dairy (supermarket) just over the road that sells all essentials plus home-made food made by local people...get up early ad see if you can grab a sausage roll (in pastry)..DELICIOUS!! but be quick, they don't stay around long. The bus stops outsideand it's a 15 min ride into town (if you go clockwise!!) In summary if,like us, you hate the big resorts where everyone is rushing around with tennis racquets and down to the pool for morning aerobics) then this is the place for you, PLUS it's great value! Thanks so much Michelle and Paul!! We LOVE your little piece of paradise. Meitaki!! Sally and Mike xxx
