We have just moved to Central QLD and thought we would take a trip to Daydream Island... All of the staff were incredibly friendly and it was nice to have time away with the family. That is where the positives end... It is extremely dated and the showers are grubby. There is a bad smell that encompasses the resort and...

We booked the Luxury Escapes package back in March 2016 for a family holiday on Daydream Island last week. We booked into 2 x Coral Ocean Balcony Rooms, one for the boys and one for the girls. Like most people here, a few months out I started reading the reviews of the resort and the bulk of them were scathing,...

Had an hour here as part of a day cruise around the islands. We were looking forward to the swim up bar but the pool was filthy and all taped off. Resort generally looked dated and shabby apart from the mermaids restaurant area. We had tried to book a room here earlier for two adults, two kids and a toddler...

I had booked 2 nights in advance and I went to another hotel after the first night in Daydream Island - the worst experience! It's a complete decadent and falling apart hotel. Reception area and rooms smell so badly. Pools are dirty. Chairs and beachbeds are ruined. Bad and cheap food sold very expensive. There are no options. Most of...

It was with some trepidation that we arrived here because I spent some time the night before reading Tripadvisor reviews and they were generally scathing. However, although I could see the source of some of their complaints, I couldn't agree with the critics on the whole. Our stay proved to be 6 great days of fun. The kids loved the...

The island itself is beautiful but the resort is falling apart. If you haven't booked this already, don't. If you have booked it, bring food to eat with you and if you're coming from Airlie, bring your own drinks too. The main atrium, where you check in initially and are also meant to relax at the bar and listen to...

Four pools and a great place to bring the kids for a holiday, I would recommend it for couples and the elderly. There are heaps of activities to keep you busy during the day and a wonderful outdoor cinema to go to relax and watch a movie, the breakfast is the same; a beautiful buffet, the best restaurant to go...

We bought a Luxury Escapes 5 night package and stayed at Daydream last week. We had our 2 daughters with us, aged 10 & 11, and we travelled with friends who had their 12 year old son with them.
