The main hotel and beach area was very nice. Restaurant had a great outside eating area. Stayed in the Rainforest hotel room and found it clean, quiet and adequit for what we paid for. Would recomend the hotel but would have rather stayed in the main building if I had known on booking.

Rooms (I had two because I had to be moved due to an awfully loud air-conditioner) were comfortable without being great. Service to the room was excellent and the view great. Staff were friendly and nice particularly front office and restaurant. The two gripes I have is the price of ordinary Australian wines and the policy of serving reds at...

Popped in for a short stay - originally taken by the beach front locale. However, we ended up in the sister property 1 block back from the beach - but that proved okay by us - we were really just after a bed and these suited us fine. But we were still able to enjoy the beachside facilities so we...

Amazing location especially around the stingers season because the netted area is just across from the resort. Great swimming pool and staff super friendly and so helpful! The lunch we had st the restaurant was also really nice! Only downside is the room we had, was not very big , quite old and the blankets really did not smelled nice.

The Hotel itself is nice but not 5 star, it is a hotel on the beach in a fantastic location and if it wasn't beachfront it would be very ho hum. The rooms were clean and tidy but the restaurant staff needed to learn how to wait on tables with courtesy and manners. Will think twice about staying next time....

I really enjoyed the Pool area, with drinks in hand. The beers are cold - great in the hot weather we had on the weekend. Great views from the pool of the ocean and surrounding islands. We will stay again.

Only overnight stay but I was really impressed by the location and access to the beach with shark nets. Room was well serviced and air-con was very welcome on a blistering day. Cocktail bar and restaurant was a great retreat. Breakfast which was included in the tariff was more than substantial. Great place to stay for about three days to...

I had one night in the Rainforest part of the hotel. Unfortunately I have to confirm that a lot of cockroaches are in the bedroom. So the night and sleep were very uncomfortable. The service is good even the breakfast. But who thinks eggs are included in a intercontinental breakfast will be disappointed. You have to pay extra for that!...

What a beautiful location! As a local I don't always get the opportunity to enjoy our own backyard but when I took the opportunity to have a well deserved weekend away, I am so glad I picked Castaway's resort. Located right on the beach with every room waking up to an amazing view, it is the perfect place to stay....
