Three weeks in the Cooks, four different resorts, and Castaway was our favorite by far. It is the sort of place to come back to year, after year. The main reason-the people. They are friendly, helpful, warm, inviting, and fun. There is a restaurant for dinner and a bar which opens in the mid afternoon. A kitchen area in the rooms allow for flexibility. There is a little store across the street where you can purchase provisions. Although you can snorkel right in front of the resort at high tide, a great area is only a 5 min scooter/20 min walk away.
