Have just returned from a 7 night stay at Daydream Island Resort & Spa. We travelled in a large family group to attend a family wedding on the island. A few of us had been to DDI in the past so knew how beautiful the island is. But before leaving, I read many bad reviews on TripAdvisor so there were...

We spent 5 nights on Daydream Island and had pretty much prepared for the worst. We were pleasntly surprised. From the beginning staff we helpful and accommodating. Kids loved the pools, lagoon, living reef tours and kids club. Found meals to be decently priced and we had something different nearly everyday. Yes, there are elements that need some attention, especially...

we had an amazing view from our room of the beach and garden. Food was great from the restaurant and everything was close by. The day tours were well organized and a lot of fun. Very friendly staff and very clean rooms. great for families with young children.

So disappointed! Old, run down, dated and dirty. It was like we were staying at a resort that was about to close down. Closed down shops. No staff to be found when you needed them. Two bad restaurants with people in singlets and bathers. We were supposed to stay for a week but lasted two nights and moved to Hamilton...

I should have followed the advice of many others who have reviewed this resort and booked in elsewhere. The resort is a shadow of its former self. The "boutique" stores are all closed, facilities are barely maintained and much of the place needs to be refurbished, which is apparently scheduled to begin later this year. Even the iconic copper mermaid...

Nice, peaceful getaway with lots to do. Nice service, food and drink. A good place for the kids. Buffett breakfast is awesome, soo much to choose from. Lots of swimming pools with views of the ocean and blue sky's.

For anyone planning a quiet couples tropical retreat to do nothing but swim, read and doze under coconut palms Daydream is Island ideal. Its lush grounds and pools are kept immaculate and the staff were always happy, relaxed and helpful (also hard working and organised). For example staff take guests' luggage from Hamilton Is Airport directly to their rooms leaving...

This aging resort is about to be completely overhauled. Right now, it is an affordable get away but after the refurb, it will be 6 stars and out of reach for most normal people. So if you want to see the Whitsundays at their best - hurry up. The staff make this place amazing. they come from all over the...

My trip goes back a ways and evidently there hasn't been any major changes especially with management. If you want beautiful waters to swim in and coral beaches to relax on, good luck as there are seasons when microscopic jelly fish will attack your nervous system and one may as well lay on a beach of uncomfortable branches. If you...

Arrived to a cool drink and a seashell necklace. The WOW factor of the living reef was the real delight of the arrival and a wonderful spot to spend zen time during the holiday. Quick check in then off to the beach for some sailing and kayaking. Loved the swim up bar at Mermaids end of resort. Awesome gardens, wildlife...
