Before you go diving, after diving, waiting for your taxi, grab a spot at the bar, or one on beach. Nice people, friendly casual beach bar. Sandy.........Phoenix Arizona, USA

We rented a villa in Jolly Harbour, so Castaways became our beach bar; the perfect place to order a drink and watch the sun set. Drinks were good and reasonably priced. We also had a lunch, shrimp tika wrap and spicy jerk chicken and an Indian dinner, prawn curry and chicken saagwala, all of which were good. Service is island... More

We stumbled across Castaways looking for somewhere for dinner one evening. As we were outside of peak season, the place was quiet but the good delicious. The menu is mainly made up of Indian food (with some other dishes) and whilst this wasn't what we had thought we wanted, it was one of the most delicious curries we've had. The... More

We were staying at the Jolly Beach Resort but we walked over for a couple of drinks and appetizers to break up the monotony of the all-inclusive. Drinks and food were really good, but know that you will be charged 15% tax and 10% service charge on everything, which makes it a little pricey.

Castaways is a little piece of tropical paradise. The drinks are strong and the beach is soft. We rented an umbrella for $10. We found the buffet lunch to be well done with a small but good variety of food. The only negative is the people trying to rent you jet skis every 10 minutes. I would just have a... More

We did a Disney Cruise Port adventure. Umbrellas were US$10 extra. I didn't mind paying for an umbrella but a lot of them are broken, don't stay open, have rips in them. Basically they've not replace them in any years even though I'm sure the US$10 fee that they charge everyone should allow them to purchase new ones and get... More

The guys in our group went over for a few drinks from the resort. It is an average bar scene. They did have a bonfire and band on Friday but we did not go.

We visited Castaways as part of a cruise excursion. The beach was beautiful, water was calm and clear blue. You had to pay extra for an umbrella but it was worth the $10. You can swim or walk along the white sand beach. They had jet skis and other water "toys" for rent. The excursion included lunch which was actually... More

Visited Castaways on our week in Antigua against my better judgement given the reviews. Had some good points and not so good points. Service was fine except for having to go to the bar to order more drinks. The serving staff seemed more interested in there phones then checking on us. On a good note the meal was good. My... More

We were a big family group of 12 and on our first night in Jolly Harbour Castaways was an obvious choice for dinner, for us all to enjoy the fantastic view and location right on the beach. The food was good and some of the selections made were really good, however the service was very slow and most of the... More
