My boyfriend and I stayed at 3 places for our 8 nights in Rarotonga and this was definitely the best value and if we come again, we would stay the entire time at the Castaway. Michelle is over the top delightful and Paul was hardworking and stayed on top of having everything available at breakfast. The place was clean, large, and having a kitchen really saved us money for a few meals which can be expensive eating out.
FYI - we also stayed at the Edgewater and the Rarotongan which are nice resorts, but not worth the extra money. The Rarotongan did have better snorkeling right at their beach, but you could take a bus to go there and save much more.
