We went to Rarotonga in June as a group of 12 with 3 of us celebrating our 40th birthdays. 6 of us stayed at Castaway for a week. We all have young children, so having a holiday with child free sleep ins was magical! Every day was busy but relaxing for us and the breakfast of fresh tropical fruits, cereals and toast was more than enough to start our days. The bar staff were friendly and made the best cocktails for us to drink on the beach (although the sunset never quite looked like the postcards!). The menu of a different theme for dinner every night was a good idea as it enabled the 12 of us to sort what we wanted to do for dinner. Many, many thanks to the fabulous waitress who came in on her night off to cook all of us chop suey! What a legend. This shows what a great team of people work at Castaway resort :) Thanks guys, we will be back.
