What a wonderful stay

This was the fourth time we have stayed at Castaway over the years and our first since COVID. I am happy to say that Castaway still has the charm! Kids club was great - with Mickey, Shrek, Cinderella and Rapunzel fast becoming my sons favourite people! The food was excellent especially our fabulous night at 1808. A special shout out to Joe, Paul and Craig for helping us through our Diving journey and to all those who took the big girls on numerous donut and banana boat rides! Vinaka to the whole Castaway crew!
