Nice Island to visit
Taste of food was very ordinary and plain but edible. Expensive for what you can. Swimming was great and beautiful scenery. Nice photos. Not big island so people everywhere you go. Great for families with small children.

We had a great time
The best things about Daydream is the affordability of the dining options and activities as well as the daily servicing of our room. Staff were welcoming and helpful
On Daydream you can do as little or as much as you want. Even though there was just the two of us, there were plenty of families taking advantage of the facilities as well as a wedding party there for the weekend! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and definitely plan on going back

Fantastic family holiday
Family friendly, activities, food
We had a fantastic stay. If You have kids that You want to entertain and never get bored that's where you take them. Food was amazing in the waterfall restaurant. Swimming pools are nice and always kept clean. It is very hot not to have an air conditioner in the restaurant or in the reception though. That was the only negative.

Held to ransome on an island
The bed was comfortable. Good TV service. Housekeepers were good
What kind of Holiday resort closes the bar at 8:45? Everything on the island costs extra. Crazy golf is $10. Snorkels hire is $10. The kiddies playgroup costs $50 FOR 4 HOURS! $47 DOLLARS for a carvery which had some formed gammon,some fatty roast pork, overcooked roast beef, and broiled chicken. I asked if there was any rare roast beef. The reply was "That's it mate." Customer service does not seem to be part of their culture.
