My husband, myself & our 14mth old son recently stayed on Castaway Island for 6 nights. It was fantastic & I would happily recommend this location as a great place to go. Before going I researched various locations in Fiji for a family holiday - key things for us was that the place was family friendly - with very good babysitting services as our son is too young for Kids Clubs, swimming options at pool & beach, reasonably sized clean rooms & with scuba diving trips available. Castaway consistently rated well & friends also recommended it. We were not disappointed in choosing to go there.
All the staff were so friendly & our son was permanently being picked up & hugged by the staff who seem to all genuinely love kids. The babysitters we had for all were all great & we happily went off on boat dive trips& to dinners knowing he was in good hands & enjoying himself. The pool is lovely although a bit on the small side at times when the majority of families staying decide its pool time.
We stayed in a garden bure which was lovely - whilst it was a fair way (relatively speaking compared to others) from the beach & pool we didn't mind the short walk (5mins).
The food was pretty good, although the only suggestion I would have is to have some vegetarian or lighter meal options available on the menu. Also the food/drinks & meal packages are a bit on the pricy side compared to other Fiji locations however it is an island & we just accepted that as being part of the holiday.
Overall we would happily recommend Castaway as a fab location for families. We are already looking to rebook next year !
