The review is really a tale of two stories, one of staff trying their best under difficult circumstances and another of management/owners trying to extract as high a margin as possible. Firstly the location of this island is great but it is not a destination island and you should aim to use this as a base to explore other places, I would recommend a trip to Whiteheaven beach and island hoping. As reviewed by others the place is in desperate need of investment and at best it feels like a 80's hol... Read more

Arrival at Daydream Island Resort started off well - photograph, shell necklace and mocktail for visitors - just as promised on the website. Complimentary sparkling wine and chocs with a lovely message were waiting in our room (my travel agent had told them it was my birthday) - again, another big tick that added to my feeling that this was going to be a great holiday break for hubby and I. Unfortunately, that was the last of the positive feelings I have about Daydream Island Resort. It all w... Read more

We booked "Cruise Whitsundays" & they were wonderful. They explained what we could use & any extra coatings if required. We didn't feel that welcomed when we arrived at Dream Island. No direction given to the prepaid restaurant that we had arranged through the day visit. When we located the restaurant, another family were standing there patiently waiting to be seated. We had to get the attention of a staff member who wasn't busy to help them, so that we could be seated. Once seated, we had less ... Read more

We stayed for two nights and it was a really bad experience. It started getting of the boat when we were being routet to a welcome meeting. The resort is very worn down and in bad need of an upgrade. When we arrived it was over crowded and no sunbeds where available. In due thanks to all the visiting day passengers that come. The resort and theme is similar to a spain/Cyprus resort in the 90ies. The rooms where OK, but not updated at all and our front door lock didn´t work and took them two day... Read more

I had heard the resort was tired and in desperate need of a refurb which I was prepared for but the staff are just that too. Staff were generally rude and it seems everything was "too hard"! I asked one staff member for directions to the kids club and he just shrugged his head and said, I don't know, I only started a week ago. I was also prepared for the food to be overpriced and took the advice from most reviews and brought along plenty of snacks for the kids. I wasn't however prepared for th... Read more

Excerpt from my feedback form to Daydream Island Resort and Spa: Given the poor quality of the resort, it is very overpriced on every level: food, beverages, accommodation, activities. Mini golf should be closed down, as should the playground as it is in such a bad state and is a safety hazard. We paid extra for the ocean view room and the first room we were checked into had a view of grass and a hedge, in addition to being damp and mouldy. We attempted to ring reception to ask about a room c... Read more

Daydream Island Resort We came to Daydream Island Resort for a wedding. We arrived at the island with family and friends by ferry from Hamilton Island. The wedding arrangements were all perfectly attended to and enjoyed by all. Daydream Island has been acquired by Chinese interests and changes and improvements to the resort are likely. Daydream Island resort is a great place for families with young children. In fact, it is its very purpose. For the non-family holidaymaker, it is all a bit too... Read more

I've stayed in everything from campsites to 5 star and more than happy to rough it but when I pay for 4.5 star it comes with certain expectations! Daydream Island is definitely not worth the 4.5 star rating it has, or the money we spent. Expectation did not match reality. It was the little things that added up which contributed to an experience that was a let down. Downvotes - The light in the bathroom leaked when it rained. - The shower was without hot water and required maintenance twi... Read more

I'll write dot points just to cover the main points of dissatisfaction. ? No hot water for 24 hours - was fixed ? Toilet didn't flush for 8 hours ? No hot water tap for 4 hours - fixed again. ? Light in the bathroom dripped every single night. Had to put a towel in the bath so the droplets were not as loud ? Front door of room was covered in filth ? $415 a night but had to pay $40 to hire snorkel gear and pay for a fish feeding tour. ? Hired a kayak but couldn't go anywhere ... Read more

My wife and I stayed in a second level unit in the coral ocean view wing for 3 nights. We had done our research and realised that a lot of feedback about this resort hadn't been amazing however we weighed the pro's against the cons and made the call to stay because we wanted a smaller quieter island to visit and were on a budget. Room: Fairly clean and practical having all we needed. The block out curtains were mouldy and had many holes in them, the bathroom ceiling and door was mouldy and t... Read more
