I would like to know why we have been charged $924.05 on our credit card not the $892.80 that it stated on our booking. I have just emailed Castaway asking the question. We paid for meals/drinks at the time when at The Wilsons Bar.

Don't let the reception area fool you. As a first impression, yes, it could do with a revamp. But go into the resort and it's a real gem. To be fair, some things are a bit tired, but the rooms are clean with everything you need, and the bed was really comfy. The staff are super nice and helpful and the food was always really great. Considering how popular the resort and the restaurant is, it was also very quiet. A really great place to stay!
