Castaways was an amazing experience. It’s so worth it. The food was way better than I expected. Had an unreal time. Staff were brilliant and Rosie in particular made the whole trip !

Myself and 2 others reserved online and went to “official” castaway office , but we never made it to the casteaway island or saw any casteaway staff. The boat was okay, but then three of us were dumped on an island with a public toilet...More

Basically the journey is based on consuming and partying. In case that's what you are searching for to spend the days of yours at Halong Bay, pick this tour! But personally I'd have liked seeing much more of the gorgeous scenery rather than being wasted...More

The females, which rep it is wonderful, they made the encounter enjoyable. The island is beautiful.. though the food and the rooms are dire. Put some money returned into the resort!! A number of touch ups and it might be ideal.
