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

Amanda and I have just spent two weeks with Dave and Sheryl at the DayDreamer - We also took four of our young adult kids! The unit we had was so good. Spacious, clean and modern with such an incredible outlook into private gardens. With six of us we never tripped over each other - it was simply perfect. Personally... More

Me and my partner just returned from our wonderful holiday in Raro. This was our first time in Rarotonga and we felt very welcomed.
