"As a summer resort operator who caters to families in the USA ,I think you do a fantastic job! My young family and I visited in February 2004 for the first time- everything was first rate. The staff, the food, the rooms, the dive operation, the kids program, all excellent! You made us feel very welcome; I would highly recommend it. Thanks for a great stay. Sincerely Bob Beach" - Bob Beach, Vergennes, Vt USA

"Bula Castaway Crew. I'm happy to say that we will be arriving at Castaway on the 13th of March (next week!) for our second vacation at Castaway and we can't wait. We were wondering if there was anything that anyone there would like us to bring from the US, either for the staff or the Kid's Club. We would really like to bring gifts, but aren't sure if there is anything we have to offer here that is needed or wanted. We would be happy to try to fulfill any requests. Please reply soon as our time is limited -- we are counting the days now!" - Karen Hellwig, Phoenix, AZ USA
