We were welcomed to Castaway Island by the staff saying 'welcome home' which was a nice touch and made us feel relaxed straight away. We arrived early and the reception staff were more than willing to get our room ready for us as soon as possible (we had to wait only 15minutes or so). The bures are airconditioned, well equipped, good sized and very well placed (we had an Ocean Front bure). Although the island has an overwhelmingly family-feel, we were a couple looking for relaxation and managed to satisfy ourselves completely. There is an adult pool as well as a children's pool and plenty of beach space for everyone! One the first night (wednesday) there was a traditional Fijian Meke with all the kids doing a little dance and the opportunity to speak to the staff and the head chef who is an Australian and loves to talk and tell you all about anything you want to know!
There are 5 restaurants all offering pretty decent food (the food package is over priced though, we stuck to pay as you go) with 1808 definitely being the favourite. we had the buffet one night which wasn't great (but i personally think buffets rarely offer great food).
The staff were super super friendly and eager to help. we felt like we'd made friends in our short 3 day visit. I would definitely recommend Castaway as one of the better places to stay in Fiji and if I'm to go back to Fiji I would definitely go back here.
