Castaway Resort, Rarotonga
A home away from home
Great place to stay. I cannot fault it. The room was well equipped and clean. Everything is very organised. It was great to be able to wander over and have breakfast, which is included, and I loved the beach bar (and the sunsets). The rouns island bus ir right at the door, there is a convenience store, and an ATM not far away. So convenient, and Michelle in the office will tell you anything and book anything. The book exchange is a great idea, especially if it rains. It is not a big impersonal flashy resort, but neither does it claim to be. It is just what we wanted, however. Very laid back. Thank you Michelle and Paul.

Relax and unwind
We enjoyed a weeks stay at the Castaway Resort. Our room was large, very clean, plus it was poolside and just a minute walk to the beach. Staff were impressively friendly and helpful from receptionists to chefs and waitstaff. We ate dinner in the restaurant a few times and the food was delicious. Also a treat as Wilson's bar & restaurant is on the beach. Bus stop just outside the resort making it easy to get around the island. A relaxing and relatively quiet place to stay with it being an adult only resort. We thought this was great allowing us to make the best of our stay.
