2 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The resort is Old and tired. Exaggerated commendation overall. Hardly a luxury escape? Ok for families with small children. Lots of children's activities. Running on minimum staffing on rotational shifts. Tired staff and not very helpful. Many and varied faults due to ageing facilities. GST not included in purchases but additional to final account was the last straw.

My husband, six year old and myself just got back from the most wonderful holiday in this lovely part of the world. From the incredible massage to the fantastic reef ranger programme to the amazing scenery, this resort far exceeded my expectations. The staff went out of their way to help and it was overall a fabulous holiday. My daughter... More

Today my husband and I revisited a trip we did 11 years ago to Daydream Island. I was saddened to see how run down this resort has become. Dirty, stained and some broken furniture. White ant ridden foreshore seating, ripped and tattered hammock, rusted gutters some with plants growing out of them, mouldy pavers and the list goes on. Breakfast... More

I would happily go back again and we had a wonderful stay. The only down sides were limited dining options (only really two per meal are open) although the food was nice, and being woken early by fellow guests' small children in the corridors. That and the fact that we couldn't access Lovers Cove to snorkel because of private functions... More

I've just returned from a week at Daydream Island with my husband and my 2 year old daughter. My daughter had an absolute blast. Feeding the fish at Lover's Cove and seeing the sharks, stingrays and fish in the Living Reef every day were highlights. We couldn't go 30 minutes without a request to go back and see the stingrays.... More

After finding what looked like a fantastic value/luxurious deal on Luxury Escapes, we decided to book a five night stay..... That was where the luxury stopped. The resort is definitely not fit for a 'luxury' title. We arrived to a dated, quite poorly maintained resort. Light globe covers were falling off and just left on the floor for days, silicone...

We didn't have high expectations for our 5 night stay reading some of the reviews here but were very pleasantly surprised. Firstly we thought the service from practically every staff member was excellent. All were happy and helpful. Secondly the decor could be described as a bit dated but it wasn't anywhere near as bad as expected. For a family... More
