Just back from 5 nights on Castaway Island.
- Most of the staff are incredibly friendly. From the musicians to the gardeners to the babysitters to the nurse - they were warm, welcoming and sincere.
- The location is pristine. Crystal clear waters and a coral reef 50 metres off shore for snorkelling
- The facilities and set up for children is very impressive. Our son was too young for kids club but all the other parents were queueing up with delight each morning to outsource their kids for the day.
- Loads of activities if you're up for it. Beach volleyball, touch footy, kyaking, windsurfing, sailing, SCUBA etc
- A few of the staff had lost the will to live. Polar opposites to the majority which made their miserable service stand out even more.
- Someone stole my wife's bikini from the clothes line out the front of our bure. When everyone is paying ~$1000 a night the last thing you expect on the island are thieves but it happened. A little disappointed with the reaction of reception when we told them which was "it must have just blown off". Given it was hung up with about 4 pegs and there was no wind this was a bit odd.
The food is decent but if we go again we wouldn't do the meal plan. If you feel like gorging yourself jabba the hut style and need 3 courses for breakfast, lunch and dinner then it's worth it. If you want to eat like you do normally and don't want to leave 10kgs heavier then it's better value to just order a-la-carte.
