6/10 Good

Nice view and close to the beach. The receptionist is not friendly. I understand it was busiest time during the christmas and new year but its not a excuse. I paid $20 for the late check out, but the cleaner still asked us to leave at 10?? The Spa- I booked a time slot online 2 days before staying. 10 min Before entering the spa I checked with reception. The receptionist told me just go to the spa. When I arrived the spa, they still asked me to wait another 15mins. The staff were unprofessional. Breakfast service very slow.

8/10 Very good

We stayed at Castaways once before and had an excellent stay. That was the reason we chose to take our parents visiting from overseas there. Chalet 18 we stayed in was old, didn’t think it was worth the $$ we paid. The windows hadn't been cleaned, the carpet was old, stained, flat and damp, the aluminium windows were pealing off. It was very basic compared to the chalet we stayed before which was a shame. The food and drinks were decent but the fruit flies in the restaurant seemed to bother everyone. Shame the stone cooked steak was taken off the menu. The spa was amazing. In general the staff were very friendly and helpful. Just the one thing that seemed consistent from our last time.
