Good Value Having come back again to holiday in Castaway I find it a great place to stay and relax. It is well priced and I mean by that it is very good value. Michelle and Paul are good hosts always helping, always looking after their guests and talking to them in Wilson's Bar. All the staff are friendly and helpful also. The view of the sunset each evening looking out to sea from Wilson's Bar over the white sand is an occasion not to be missed. Castaway is only a few minutes from the Airport and sea port and main town of Avarua. Go there you will enjoy your stay. Richard


So good I keep coming back I have stayed at this resort so many times I have lost count!!! The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are tidy and clean. The food at this resort is outstanding, with many options the selection is endless. This resort offers many kinds of rooms, I have stayed in a beach front unit as well as a two bedroom apartment, so something on offer for all. I can highly recommend the "big kahuna"(cocktail), just make sure you aren't driving!!!!!

Incredible stay. Awesome Hosts The Castaway resort is a fabulous place to enjoy a peaceful vacation. Located on the side of the island where sunsets are gorgeous. Stayed in room 5a, a 2 bedroom suite. Extremely spacious, big refrigerator, incredible deck. The hosts, Paul and Michele were INCREDIBLE. Made sure that everything was to our liking. Bent over backwards to make sure we had a warm shower before leaving the island Late Friday night. Would highly recommend this place. Also, a restaurant and bar are part of the property which makes everything you need within a VERY SHORT stroll!!!
