Castaways is right on the beach with a path alongside the palms leading to the shops and cafes. Mission Beach has a laid back vibe and not for those looking for wild nights. The pools are lovely...one lap pool and one infinity overlooking the garden and beach. Breakfast basic but good. Rooms comfortable and clean. We had a ground floor...

Stayed here for two nights while we did our sky dive on the beach. Stayed in a rainforest room. The room itself is basic but very clean. There was a TV in the room and waterfall shower which was great. Air con was quiet and cold. The main pool at the Beachfront resort is incredible.

Mission Beach is beautiful and this resort is right smack bang on the beach. Amazing views and a very nice resort. Breakfast was included daily, fresh fruit and coffee were great. Staff were nice but nothing really stood out that I would say they were excellent. Would definitely stay again on my next visit to Mission Beach.

After obsessively reading the reviews on TripAdvisor, I did not want to come here. TripAdvisor members have always proven to be right, albeit often over petty things.
