We stayed on Daydream Island for three nights in August, 2007.
We had an Ocean Balcony Room, which was pleasant, with a lovely sea view. However, the bathroom did not have good ventilation, and was mouldy, even with the ceiling fan on non-stop; - the tiles on the floor needed a good scrub.
Besides this, the room was fine, although I can't understand how it has been given a four and a half star rating.
We had one meal at the Fishbowl Tavern, which was 'pub-style' - couldn't get a seat, despite the efforts of the waitresses, who were really trying. The food was average.
The next two nights we ate at Mermaids, which was very good and a pleasant atmosphere.
The facilities at Daydream are excellent. So many pools to ponder which to swim in. Very good for couples with young children. The daily fish feeding was great for the children - and adults.
We went to the fish-feeding at Lover's Cove one day and snorkelled at the same time. This is on a fringing reef. The fish and coral were very good - with the fish being very tame - and obviously waiting for their 'feed'.
On the downside, room service did not appear until nearly 5pm to clean our room and we were totally 'forgotten' by the mini-bar people during our stay.
Despite this, we enjoyed our stay at Daydream. A bit commercialised, but still pleasant. Would be good for people with young children, rather than those seeking a romantic getaway.
Overall, a very pleasant stay!
