It is with mixed feelings (positive and negative) that I write this review. My daughter organised this resort for a group of us to stay in as she was getting married in Rarotonga over Easter 2015. From the outset she asked to book out the whole resort for 8 nights. She was quoted a price which she accepted and a... More

Big thanks to Dave and Sheryl for helping to make our holiday so enjoyable. The resort does not target the top end holidaymakers but that is exactly what we wanted - a base to explore some lovely beaches and having the ability to provide for some self catering. Dave and Sheryl are lovely down to earth people, so helpful and... More

Good points first: The unit I stayed (number 5) in was peaceful and quiet as it was far from the road, the gardens are lovely and kept really nice, it has a brand new pool, the units themselves are spacious, well maintained and quite modern, and my bed was comfy with a good mattress and fluffy pillows. Location-wise there are... More

I spent here 4 nights, the apartment was extremely clean and very very big. The location is very good, walking distance from one of the best snorkeling points of the island, the Aroa marine reserve. I didn't have a car but traveling by bus is really easy. Dave and Sheryl are just lovely! Hope to be back one day!

My fourth visit to the island and overall believe this is the best location, with scooters it's close enough to Muri/snorkeling/wigmores, also great location to watch the sunset Dave and Sheryl are working very hard and it's paying off, what lovely people and so accommodating. Rooms are fresh and clean, with a very homely touch on the decor, beds are... More

And the customer service excellence award goes too..... Dave and Sheryl and the Daydreamer Resort! My impression of Dave and Sheryl as that they really want you to have an easy, relaxing holiday. Nothing is too much bother. We rented a 7 seater vehicle from them and used it to access all Rarotonga has to offer. The Rarotongan is a... More

We were totally satisfied with the resort and its hosts, Dave and Sheryl. The resort is well-managed, very clean, with new bathroom and a comfortable bed. There are great restaurants nearby with good advice from the hosts on other great spots. Can't wait to return and see the new pool in action.

We recently spent a week at the Daydreamer resort, 6 family members and an 8 month old baby. What an awesome experience. Facilities were topnotch, the location suited us and we couldn't fault the hosts Dave and Sheryl. As I type this Dave will be slogging putting in a pool, what an awesome addition to an already lovely place. One... More

Dave and Sheryl were always available to help, offer idea of places to go and see – treated us like part of the family. Totally recommend this place as a place to stay,... More
