We stayed here with my 2 children for 5 nights. There are activities (including free and paid ones) within the resort. Due to the windy conditions, archery (one of free activities) was cancelled for the last 2 days and we are checking out tomorrow. My son was quite disappointed as he did not get to try it. I went to the Step up class. I hope the managment can consider more gym classes. Quite disappointed as other free non-motorised sports activities such as paddle board, kayak and catamaran are also cancelled due to the windy days for the last 2 to 3 days. Only did kayak with my children on our second day here. We can snorkel off the lover cove but the windy conditions did not help with the visibility of the water. We saw some fishes such as parrots fishes etc while snorkelling off Lovers Cove. Our ocean balcony room is quite spacious and it has LCD TV. But we have to pay for movies on our TV. Very nosiy unit as I am a light sleeper and I can hear the talking noise at night from the thin walls when people walk past and the chairs upstairs being moved here and there at night. I guess there is nothing much the resort can do with the construction of the units. We loved to see the the morning sunrise over from our room. Sunset at lovers cove and south end of the island are beautiful too. The two Play equipments (one at coral wing) and the other on the south end cater to the young toddlers. I hope the resort management can consider installing outdoor gym equipment along the boardwalk and play equipment for older kids. The boardwallk and rainforest walk nearby the resort are great with beautiful and scenic views. Very limited choices eating out as there are only 3 restaurants or 2 on some nights. Mermaid restaurant food is nice but expensive. It is a fine gourmet dining place with very small portion of food for mains! Fishbowl caters to family with children as most food there are fried eg. deep fried prawns, friend nuggets. My kids said the the meals at Fishbow are more filling for them. Anyway both places are very expensive considering they are not big serves of food. We feel like we are in Hawaii being on the island resort. Nice getaway from winter in Sydney for us!! I went to the spa and absolutely loved the botanical spa package with body steaming, facial massage, hair and eye treatments. I stayed in the spa ocean balcony for hours reading after the treatment as we are welcome to stay as long as we want after the treatment. Every lady should try to a spa pampering session especially at the daydream island resort.
