ForgottenStoryFilter! Asking for a friend because the details are familiar to me too, but I can't place where *I* could have read it...

So, from my friend:
*The story was about a bunch of people who were on an island. After a while, they realized they were all dead.
*The people go to an island resort. They get there by plane (or crash there in a plane--jury is out on it, but there is definitely a plane). It may or may not be a vacation trip.
*At first, the island is awesome and magically has everything that everyone wants. For example, if you are really into scuba diving, they have the most amazing scuba diving in the world. Or if you love a certain kind of food, they have it.
*Little by little, the rides break, the scuba equipment fails, the good goes bad.
*Eventually, they all remember parts of their former lives. Bad things.
*Then, they all realize they are dead and are essentially in hell.
This sounds so familiar to me, and it is driving me crazy because I thought I could have read it at some point. She thinks it may have been written in the 1960's.
So hive mind - I've seen you work miracles. Let's see if you can untwist this.
