Stayed just the one night for business and really enjoyed the resort. Situated right on the beach with great views from most of the rooms. I stayed on the second floor which overlooks the pool and beach - very nice. Rooms are quite simple and understated but still quite nice. Service was excellent. Front desk staff were very welcoming and...

We visited for a last minute trip from Cairns. Cant beat the location or the view. As per other reviews the hotel is showing wear and tear but to be honest it got smacked by a cyclone and is on the coast so withstands more weather than most, it didnt affect our stay at all. Was lovely to sit in...

This is what I wrote before we went to sleep: The hotel is on a lovely beach and has a spa, reception, restaurant, swimming pool and lawn and is at a beach which has a marine stingers net. But we got, as booked, a rainforest room # 511, on 17th March. These rooms are separate from main building about 150...

Draft Day Spa. Had a Vichy shower after a body wrap and it felt like I was drowning. Could hardly get any air. Had a facial and the steam wand felt like it was boiling my skin. Staff member was frazzled and did not make it a relaxing experience. Noticed that horse hoof softner was being used in the nail...

Hi J N, I apologize for the negative experience that you had at our Day Spa. I will ensure that your comments are followed up with our Spa team, as this is certainly not the relaxing and rejuvenating experience that we are trying to create at Drift Day Spa.

Hi OskarandSunny, I apologize that you were not satisfied with your Luxury Escapes experience! The standard configuration of the Beachfront Resort Room features 1 queen bed and 1 king single and this is the room type included in the package deal which you purchased. We do have alternate room configurations within the resort with just one queen bed, however these...

This Resort, has a great meal experience, with good discount for Seniors, on certain nights. The Buffet, is a really great evening. The food is reasonable, to good, depending on your taste(?) But, it must be said, the "Prawns", are "FROZEN,". Why would you put frozen produce on a Buffet, when there are plenty of resources for fresh produce near,...

Castaways has a wonderful location, the views are fabulous, they have great facilities and the staff are friendly and helpful. I would recommend a beachfront unit with balcony to enjoy the tropical ambiance. Needless to say this is a wonderful property to visit. I will definitely return.
