Hi there, we the family of 4, kids 6 and 8, are going on our first family holiday to plantation island August 2007. I really wanted to go to castaway as I had been there as a child, but the price difference was major. Im really worried after reading some really bad reviews that I have made the wrong choice. Does anyone recommend which is the best beach front bures to stay in, are any better than others, and what is the weather doing in August? should we take our own life jackets for our little girls? Any information on how to make this a holiday of a life time would be so much appreciated. Also when are the Aussie school hols around that time are they in July?
