Wow! This is a bummer as they just were saying they would open in May....

The kiddos are going to be crushed!

Castaway Bay requires quite a few Life-Guards. Perhaps with the inability to hire the usual number of foreign workers that served in that position, this allows them to utilize the Life-Guards that will be available at CP Shores.

I wonder if they are not only renovating the rooms at Castaway, but also the Water Park area as well. That Maui Sands video everyone saw showed how these attractions can deteriorate over time.

That's what I wonder as well. Self-disclosure, we have never been to the actual park (although we have stayed in a room for lodging for other reasons). I was impressed with the theming-decor of the place overall.


Promoter of fog.

They aren't renovating the water park at this time. Only the rooms. There was some delays because the project had to be rebid partway through, as well as stopping for a couple months during lockdown.

There's now a lot of scaffolding being erected on the waterside façade of the Hotel. It seems the portion closer to the road has been completed. I am eager to hear what the newly-redone hotel will look like.
