3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Living reef was wonderful. The humidity in January was oppressive with limited escape options in the day. Please!!! Aircon in the atrium, we stopped eating in the restaurant due to the heat. A fan ? Anything! Drinks were expensive, some days dining options were limited. Staff were great, smiling under steaming conditions. Especially in the restaurants.

Plenty to do on daydream. Good for families looking for somewhere to entertain the kids and spend some time relaxing. We kayaked around the island, fed fish and held sharks, snorkelled, took out a catamaran, played mini golf( best course!), visited spa and watched an outdoor movie. The staff are friendly, marine biologists knowledgeable and outdoor aquarium is excellent. The... More

The location is breathe taking. Beautiful surroundings that can't be beaten. On arrival we were greeted by the duty manager and given shell necklaces (very nice touch). He ran though a few details of the hotel before we checked into our rooms. Rooms were basic but comfortable. One evening I did a sea life show around and got to hold... More

Avoid at all costs and here is why: - tacky and outdated decor everywhere - poop everywhere outside on the lawns and by the pools from the wallabies and kangaroos which are cute but at least clean it up. The poop was even on the stairs in the hotel room buildings too... Awesome! It smelled terrible. - the beaches are... More
