    • Our happy place

      Reviewed 14 September 2019

      We travel a bit and like sometimes to explore and have adventures, but other times we just want to relax and unwind. Rarotonga is the perfect place for this "decompressing". Paul and Michelle and the team at Castaway provide the perfect environment to escape the winter and enjoy the beauty of Rarotonga. No kids staying in the resort means you don't have to endure the screams and chaos that the other more popular resorts are subject to. With on 17 units it is never crowded and while there is a "party" most nights at their popular bar and yakatori diner, which is always a bit of fun, but the celebrations typically end shortly after 8pm and the peace and beauty of the wonderful location is restored. The staff are a happy crew who laugh and play around but get the job done. It is one of the few resorts on the west side of the island where you get a perfect sunset and we saw whales swimming past and breaching and flapping their tails on 3 days in a row. Magic!!! There are "flasher" resorts on the island, but this place is simple and funky and Paul and Michelle are the perfect hosts to make your holiday a great experience you wont forget.

    • Wonderful place - wonderful hosts!

      My friend and I have just got back from a week at castaways in Rarotonga and wanted to say what a wonderful week we had! They were so helpful with booking - especially as we had flights at strange times. Michelle was fab as soon as we arrived and got us to our rooms quickly so we could head to the beach ASAP! The rooms are clean and just what we needed! We had a really lovely private outdoor patio which was nice for relaxing outside when the sun went down. Everyone who works in the bar and restaurant are so friendly - and the food and drinks are great (especially at happy hour). All of the resorts in the area shut around 9pm, but there are plenty of restaurants and bars to try within walking distance, and even more to try by bus. Whilst we didnt have sun every day, when we did there are plenty of sun loungers Available and its a great place to sit and look for whales! Wed just like to say thanks to Paul and Michelle, we had a great relaxing week and wouldnt hesitate to return to castaways when we return to raro!

    • Fantastic Second Stay

      Reviewed 02 September 2019

      My husband and I have not long returned form our second stay at the Castaway Resort. We just love this R16 quiet resort situated on the west side of the island, the sunsets are some of the most beautiful in the world and in August the whales can be seen daily off shore, migrating. We snorkeled and swam out the front of the resort, the tropical fish are beautiful and plentiful. The rooms are extremely clean and comfortable, the staff are amazing, friendly, kind and provide excellent service. There are two restaurants at the resort, the food is second to none, the beach bar has a three hour happy hour, we spent a bit of time there between 3 and 6 oclock:). Managers Paul and Michelle strive to ensure each of their guests have a great stay at the Castaway Resort, we felt very special. A big thank you to Paul, Michelle, Anita, Apo, Wendy, Amanda and Alone. And yes, when booking out, we rebooked for next year.

    • Great place to stay

      Reviewed 30 August 2019

      I have just spent 4 nights at Castaway and can confirm it exceeded my expectations. I had room 6 by the pool and it was very comfortable, modern and newly renovated. Castaway is about 15 mins from the airport and well located for going into town, hiring scooters/cars etc. there are lots of eating options within walking distance if you dont want to eat at the resort every night. There is also a convenience store straight across the road. The breakfast which is free for continental was extensive with lots of fruit options. I found the front office to be very helpful and friendly. On my final day my flight wasnt until the evening and they allowed me to stay in my room all day without extra charge which was much appreciated. Make sure you check with them first before booking via a booking site. By going direct I got a food/beverage credit of $125. I would certainly return to Castaway

    • Heaven on earth

      Reviewed 27 August 2019

      This was a wonderful retreat from the busy world and I can't thank Paul and Michelle enough for the wonderful way that they looked after us.We arrived at a very late time at night and also left at a late hour, but everything was all in place for our arrival and departure. The staff were great as well, especially lovely Trina who made us feel so welcome, nothing was a problem. The unit that we stayed in was very nice and everything was there for our convenience and it was also, so so clean. There was a great bar and restaurant opening out onto the beach which had the most wonderful tropical island sunsets, and a lovely warm lagoon that you can paddle or swim in. The food was also very good. There is a nice pool to relax in if you don't want to use the beach. Would definitely go back to the Castaway resort. Thank you Paul and Michelle.
