We booked the 3 night deal thru Luxury Escapes. This place is not luxury or certainly did not apply to our room.we had asked for a room with one bed yet we ended up with a room with 2 beds and nowhere to sit other than on the balcony. They do have rooms with the one bed but the deal...

Hi OskarandSunny, I apologize that you were not satisfied with your Luxury Escapes experience! The standard configuration of the Beachfront Resort Room features 1 queen bed and 1 king single and this is the room type included in the package deal which you purchased. We do have alternate room configurations within the resort with just one queen bed, however these...

This Resort, has a great meal experience, with good discount for Seniors, on certain nights. The Buffet, is a really great evening. The food is reasonable, to good, depending on your taste(?) But, it must be said, the "Prawns", are "FROZEN,". Why would you put frozen produce on a Buffet, when there are plenty of resources for fresh produce near,...

Hi nelnaj, thank you for your review, but it actually looks like you're referring to our friends down the road at the Mission Beach Resort. (We don't offer an evening buffet here at Castaways!!) But, glad that you enjoyed their great service and awesome sweets. Ps. feel free to give our restaurant a try next time, it so happens that...

Stayed here recently with my wife and we both enjoyed our stay. Hotel was well positioned with beautiful views of mission beach. The restaurant and bar area was very nice overlooking the beach. The rooms we found were pretty outdated and the room we stayed in one complaint was that the room didn't have a seperate room or a door...

Hi Jeremy198200, thank you for staying with us! It sounds like you stayed in one of our 1bedroom Spa Apartments, one of the few rooms that have not been renovated in our Beachfront Property.

Castaways has a wonderful location, the views are fabulous, they have great facilities and the staff are friendly and helpful. I would recommend a beachfront unit with balcony to enjoy the tropical ambiance. Needless to say this is a wonderful property to visit. I will definitely return.

Stopped for lunch with the family, including my two young nephews, which wasn't a problem for the staff. Food was amazing and good value for money! Feel of the bar area very relaxed and staff were excellent! We will certainly visit again and will probably stop also!

My boyfriend and I went to Mission Beach Saturday night for a Romantic getaway. Our $190 room was very average with the pool right out the front of our window, so everyone could see into our room. The wifi did not work at all on my phone! Beach view, beautiful. Breakfast good. Staff friendly and helpful.

Loved our little rainforest getaway. It turned out to be better than the rooms on the waterfront for one big reason. It was so nice and quiet! We had the pool all to ourselves! Visiting the other pool, there were so many people and quite noisy too. The rainforest pool was nice and shady too if you are prone to...

Situated on the beach, Dunk Island in the background, we had a party of 16 for dinner. The menu was extensive and varied, with local and Australian foods featuring.

We stayed in the rainforest rooms, which were just ok. Next time we'd like to stay in a beachfront room. The cocktail bar menu offers a great variety of drinks. However, our Piñas Coladas and our friend's Mango Daiquiri were disappointing as they were very watery. The buffet breakfast was good, though. The hotel is a few steps from the...
