It was our 5th trip to Daydream Island. We went up a couple of weeks ago with our two young children. We have loved going to Daydream in the past as it is one of the most beautiful islands in Australia. But sadly, each time we go it becomes more and more run down. The staff do their best, and...

Everything they seem to offer is on a schedule. Very "cruise ship" but the care factor from staff is nil. I was excited that they had a health bar with fresh juices on offer, however either times I went there it was shut. The pizza place was always shut, the mermaid restaurant thinks it's something it's not (5 star with... More

Stayed here over Easter to celebrate my 30th Birthday. There was a lovely bottle of champagne in the room on the arrival which made my day. The rooms were a good size and clean. There was so much to do on the island for the kids but the adults were also able to have a nice time. Definitely stay here... More

We love this resort. It is a great family experience with friendly staff and child friendly activities. The loving reef around the resort is especially unique. For adults there is a great mix of activities and relaxation and a well staffed kids club can provide fun for the children and some quality adult time. The food is generally very good... More

Just returned from a few nights at Daydream island and while it was a great experience all around we did have one hiccup and that is the limited options for transportation to the resort. You need to make sure your flight arrival time is before 4:50pm if you are leaving from Airlie beach on Cruise Whitsundays as that is their... More

Had an absolutely wonderful time with my 7 year old daughter. We stayed 5 nights. Will try and get back again next year. I think this will become our yearly holiday destination. Highly recommend Daydream as a retreat for families, couples or singles.

An absolute dream location. All staff were extremely friendly. We had such a lovely warm welcome, couldn't have asked for better. The grounds were very well kept, and the facilities offered were vast. The room itself badly needed updating with an average bed, which was probably great in its day. Old decor and a bit of an old musty smell.... More

We spent 6 days & 5 nights on daydream with a large family group of 16, over the Easter long weekend. We found the staff to be wonderful especially Joe who made every effort to accommodate such a large group of us for tea at both the fish bowl & mermaids. The rooms were nice & clean. Our rooms were... More
