We had a wonderful long weekend at Daydream, we stayed in a garden balcony room which had direct access to the pools, just my partner, my almost 2 year old and I.
I had been to daydream before 5 years ago on a day trip and must say I remember thinking then it was a bit dated, and unfortunately the resort still is, the rooms need a refurb, but in the current financial climate and the fact I read the place is for sale explains why it's looking a bit tired, that said the grounds are maintained to a fantastic standard and the gardens are stunning, the place just needs new decor and furniture!
The living reef is stunning and my little girl loved seeing Nemo everytime we walked by, the beaches are amazing and the weather was great.
We enjoyed the breakfast each morning and couldn't fault it. We dined in Mermaids one night and the food was 5 star. Was not keen on The Fishbowl restaurant, it's horrible design to sit in and scary fake pirates everywhere, no need!
The pool bar Splashes was super busy on the Saturday during the day, it was a bit gross with heaps of blokes standing in it getting drunk and smoking, surely they should ban smoking in the pool! Gross.
We loved the wild fish feed and the movie night under the stars.
My 2 year old had such a great time and I think all kids would, that said you would need a fair bit of coin on you if you took a family of 5, we were watching our $$$ and still spent about $200 a day and that's with out any trips, just a couple of drinks and food.
Maybe they should look at getting a some all inclusive package going?
Any way if the food was a touch better and the place had some $$$ spent on it, it will be world class and we will go back!
