This location is great for just taking your shoes off, walking on the beach and relaxing. Close to lots of good food options for breakfast, lunch or dinner and the resort also offers this although we only had the included continental breakfast. This was not that good so we chose not to eat there in the evening. Rooms are in...

An amazing weekend away (despite the very wet weather). Stayed in the Island view Spa room which was lovely. Everything you need including spa to relax in. View would be amazing in fine weather. Room was clean and tidy although a little dated. Has everything you need. Had a great weekend and would definitely be back again.

The hotel is right on the beach in lovely gardens that need some tender loving care. The rooms are tired and rather on the grotty side and none of them have safes in the rooms. Our bathroom had a shower curtain over the bath which stuck to you every time you showered. It is quite clean but the staff generally...

My wife and I went down to Mission Beach (we live in Cairns) for a night to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. The location of the resort is excellent. It's near the beach and restaurants. We stayed in the rainforest section which was nice and we had a nice relaxing afternoon by the pool. The only negative were the mosquitoes,...

Castaway Resort was a lovely, family-friendly place and very enjoyable. The staff were well accomodating and friendly and the room had a beautiful view however they were a little small especially for larger families. The restaurant was beautiful and the food was perfect. The pools were definitely the highlight and very enjoyable for the whole family. The resort is very...

Had a great experience at Castaways recently where we stayed with the family for the weekend. We enjoyed our stay thanks to the amazing views, very friendly staff and very nice rooms. Most of the time was spent by the pool but with a view like that you wouldn't want to be anywhere else.

We stayed 3 nights in the resort. We'd flown in to Cairns from London and needed some r and r. 2 hours from Cairns but arrived 7am. Staff so helpful. Front of house staff and facility first class. Rooms a little tired but clean and comfortable. Thoroughly enjoyed the views, relaxed layout, pools, service. Would return.

Right on Mission Beach, this place is great. The view from the rooms is stunning and sitting in the restaurant or bar and looking out towards Dunk Island is what it is all about. Rooms good and the food in the restaurant is great value for money.
