We recently visited Castaway Island and stayed for 8 nights. The Island is magnificent and we were very impressed with the Bures. We stayed in a Beach front Bure, but next time would stay in a Garden Bure as they are all very similar, and it would save on costs. It's a shame they are only 1BR as very hard with young kids to sleep so close together.
We requested North side beach as we heard this was better, but were given South beach which was just as good, i couldn't see any differences.
The meal package was definately the way to go, the food was exquisite, enjoying the choice most nights of a-la-carte or buffet. The Pizza was also very delicious.
Great for Kids club, out 3 year old enjoyed a few plays, the Fijian people of course are brilliant, and our babysitter every night was very reliable!
No phones in the rooms make it hard for babysitter to contact you if need be.
It rained nearly every day which is probably normal for April, but we still enjoyed it. The pool was great for the kids!
I would suggest to other parents if your kids are sick to leave the Island, unfortunately our 9 month old contracted head/foot & mouth whilst on the Island. Sadly ended a brilliant holiday. Parents just be aware that all babies share the same high chairs, so be vigilant with cleaning them.
