We spent 5 days here in May with our 8 year old twins. It was a deal on luxury escapes so at c. $200 per night with breakfast and watersport facilities was excellent value. I'm therefore conscious when writing this review that it's fair. After all, we weren't spending $15k on the one and only on Hayman island ! The rooms are pretty good - fairly spacious and we had a balcony with sea views (highly recommend this and avoid garden rooms). They are a reasonable size and whilst the bathroom is a bi... Read more

We spent 5 nights at Daydream Island and although it could do with a revamp, we still had a lovely holiday. Plenty of walking and the walk through the rainforest was so lovely that we did it twice. The weather wasn't the best but we still enjoyed circumnavigating the island in a little boat - even if the waves were as high as the boat! Full marks for the buffet breakfast and all staff were most pleasant and helpful. Our room was good and we upgraded to a sea view balcony room. As this was rig... Read more

We booked to visit this resort in February 15, and we loved our stay. The rooms are basic but clean and well kept. We especially enjoyed waking up and finding our new "friends" outside the balcony door every day. I would definitely recommend to visit the island.

This resort was stunning from the moment we arrived off the yacht. We were greeted with shell necklaces under the welcome to day dream island sign and ushered into a room with drinks. The rooms are stunning and kept very clean. The pool area was also well looked after and the pools were all very large so there was plenty of space. I liked all the hidden spots so you can get some peace and quiet. There are plenty of activities, we fed the sting rays and had a lesson about the aquatic creatures at... Read more

This place simply is not worth a visit! We spent 6 nights and we deeply regret it!

We did a Luxury Escapes 5 nights package in a Garden Balcony room which included breakfast and ten $50 rejuvenation spa vouchers and a number of free activities provided on the island. A great little escape with plenty to do or just day dream. The resort itself is clean and still undergoing an upgrade to bring it up to standard but don't let that put you off. The Island is small one kilometer in length so you can walk every where or get a golf buggy to the other end of the island during certain ... Read more

Having read reviews before visiting, I was a little apprehensive. Yes the rooms could do with a minor spruce up but they were clean and comfortable. We had an ocean view room on the third floor opposite the marina. The balcony was uncomfortably narrow and we didn't spend much time on it...the cockies did though, freeloaders! Do not leave your balcony door open or they will come in your room to search for food. We spent seven nights and I was worried we'd be bored but no chance! We did the Hardie... Read more

We just visited the island we didn't actually stay on it, but either way it's definitely worth a visit. Plenty of activities to keep you busy from swimming in the various pools throughout the island, to mini golf, snorkelling and even a rainforest walk/hike, there's plenty to keep the whole family occupied.

The staff on the island were exceptional. They took care of all our personal requests and needs. The food was the best we have experienced in a resort setting. We have travelled Australia and New Zealand extensively. It is so relaxing on the island and at the same time if you want to be busy, there is heaps to do. We stayed for 10 nights and were never bored. The living reef is so unique and makes the experience so interesting. Our favourite spot to hang out was Lovers Cove. The fish feeding and... Read more

Luckily we stayed 1 week prior to school holidays as the resort was relatively quiet Positives include: great staff, spacious, clean rooms, variety of activities, lovely grounds,wildlife, great sunsets Negatives: quality of food, expensive to eat and limited eatery options having to pay for snorkels, mask, and fins (should be included in package)

We visited Daydream for 3 nights in July. The reviews on here had me nervous, but happily, our trip was great. Yes, the style of the decor is a little outdated in comparison to the modern styling of most hotels/resorts, but everything was clean and well kept.

Came to the resort as a day visitor for a couple of hours on the ferry. Being open to the public and being the school holidays, I thought the resort and pool would be overflooded with people, but actually it was very well kept, relaxing and not overcrowded at all! A beautiful island and it was lovely relaxing by the resort pool and photographing the 2 kangaroos on the island!

We spent 5 nights here in June 2016. First visit - but not the last. This resort has been very well constructed. Even when the number of visitors is high there is a sense of privacy as you can always find a secluded corner.

Their daily morning show should not be missed. If you are lucky they will ... Read more

We had an excellent time at Daydream Island and would love to go back.

Nice winter getaway though the weather was a tad on the cool side (between 20-25 degrees) so you need a jacket at night. A small island (only 1km long and 400m wide) so very easy to get around. 3 restaurants to choose from though only 2 are open each night. One is a buffet with different themes, one is a bistro style while the other is a la carte. Average meal for 3 of us (2 adults 1child) was roughly around $100.

So this place rates itself as 4.5* - and I can forgive the tired (exhausted) decor but there are a few nasty surprises. Firstly, I received a phone call prior to arrival saying the hot water system had failed in the Coral wing and we'd be recompensed the difference for moving to a lesser room. I declined to argue this over the phone - lo and behold, on arriving at the hotel and checking in, nothing was mentioned about the hot water, and our room was available after all. Odd.

There was nice pools ad facilities for the kids. The bars and restaurants were nice. The staff were helpful. We liked the Jacuzzi's around the facility. The beach was nice also, clean and fairly safe. The kids really enjoyed the buffet dinner within the resort, and having the contact with the sea creatures at the resort itself. The resort is bright an colourful, maybe a bit old? The restaurants were lovely. The room we stayed in was a little run down.

Fantastic place for family and kids. plenty to do . relaxed and beautiful views everywhere you look. accommodation tidy and modern. great TV !. Two restaurants to choose from. 1 is average but ok. bit pricey and the other is superb but a bit more pricey. allow $ 190 for 2 adults 3 kids . or the cheaper place say 150 $. They have heaps of aqua sports equipment and great pools too. cant fault it apart from too much kangaroo poo everywhere. other than that its 11/10

Recently spent 5 nights on Daydream Island, very disappointed. The whole resort needs a revamp, very old and unkempt. The living reef is good but that is about all. It was not advertised on their internet site, nor did any "greeting" staff mention that the The Tavern was closed for renovations which left very limited dining options. Mermaids every night of the week except one. Gilligans was closed as well due to "lack of clients this time of the year". Staff were not friendly or helpful, I have ... Read more

Daydream is more of a nightmare. From the pathetic welcome on arrival it just goes down hill from there. This resort is dated and desperately needs a face lift. It has limited facilities/options and the food is dreadful. And the staff need customer service training. Don't waste your money.

From the moment we arrived the staff were extremely welcoming and very helpful. The resort is still in good condition for it's age. For a family of 4 the rooms were a generous size and tidy. The activities were good. Another food outlet would be ideal i.e. sushi bar or similar. Good location for a Short break.

From the stucco-and-Dulux exterior to its customer service and, unfortunately, its cuisine, the resort effuses a late-90s vibe that permeates its peeling swim-up bar and frayed-hammock-dotted lawns. Though it may go without saying: the images in the glossy flyer are not fully representative of the Daydream Island experience. Uniformed, approachable and informed staff patrol the island and were, on the whole, friendly and helpful to my partner and I. We did have a run-in with the photography st... Read more

DDI Resort & Spa is a very good place to spend several days: there is a rich offer of activities that allows to experience different emotions every day. The island is big enough not to feel stranded yet large enough to offer variety. The Living Lagoon and the Rainforest were the best for me, lots to see and to learn. Be aware that tides are strong and snorkeling is suboptimal at low tide because of the water getting murky.

The resort itself is lovely, if not a bit dated. The views are amazing and the pools are perfect. Most food and drink on the island are quite expensive due to 1, it being hard to get to the island and 2, you don't have any other options. The staff working there at times don't even want to be there (and it's so humid I don't blame them) Choose this place if you just want to lay about and do nothing.

Our family stayed on daydream island for 3 nights. It's a perfect place for kids and there is everything you need. 3 nights is all you need because it;s a really small island that can be explored in no time. The service and rooms and facilities are excellent, as is the breakfast buffet. The only thing that let them down was the staff didn't really seem to like being there.

White ant ridden foreshore seating, ripped and tattered hammock, rusted gutters some with plants growing out of them, mouldy pavers and the list goes on. Breakfast was quite ordinary as well.
