First time for both my wife and I on Daydream island. Nice little spot with plenty of water activities Etc. We thought we would upgrade our room when we arrived. At that time they couldn't upgrade our first night so we just stayed in our current room. Room was spot on. Didn't need the upgrade. Ocean views galore. Only issue...

My wife and I stayed in a second level unit in the coral ocean view wing for 3 nights. We had done our research and realised that a lot of feedback about this resort hadn't been amazing however we weighed the pro's against the cons and made the call to stay because we wanted a smaller quieter island to visit...

I recently visited daydream island with my family with young kids and my good friends (couple) joined us there also. We all had an amazing time! The pools were fantastic way to cool down on a hot day for everyone. If you just want to relax, you can just sit around the pool and there's never short of refreshments! The...

We stayed on Daydream for 5 nights in early Sept. We took our 4 year old son and we had a lovely time. The weather wasn't great (cold, rain and wind for the first few days), but thankfully saw sun before we left. Water temp was quite cool, so we didn't do much swimming. Overall it is a beautiful island,...

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay. The resort was well kept and the staff were pleasant and helpful. There are many things to do to keep you busy and we loved having all of those options. Our only complaint would be the service at Mermaids restaurant. Every time we ate there we felt ignored and didn't receive great...

Firstly after reading some of the previous reviews I didn't know what to expect but kept an open mind. I dont understand why so many bad reviews? Arrival we are greeted by hotel staff and given a welcome drink and given a run down on the island and facilities. Because you arrive on a boat there was about 20 people...

It is a nice relaxing place, gardens and pools well looked after, general tiredness of the bathrooms and buildings could do with a refresh, I think it should be a star less than advertised. Staff nice and friendly and all areas kept clean.

Daydream Island was a wonderful long weekend escape. It's relatively easy to get to and from and you truly feel like you're in paradise. True the resort is a bit outdated and some parts do need some maintenance. Let's not forget all the amenities and services at your fingertips whilst you're on an island! The resort has a great space,...

Stayed at the resort for five nights. The island itself is just stunning but the accommodation is very tired and dated. Rooms in desperate need of a total overhaul although very clean. The pool areas are amazing but again could do with some updating. The gym is very well equipped. The food in the restaurants is very good but pricey...
