Positive Reviews

Beautiful island location

The Whitsunday Islands are beautiful and Daydream Island is absolutely no exception. The island has gorgeous natural scenery and wonderful wildlife. Guests enjoy swimming with the fish in the ocean, watching kangaroos laze in the garden, and sitting by the pool trying to spot passing whales.

Great breakfast buffet

Guests say that the breakfast buffet is really delicious on a morning. There is a very good selection of options for all tastes, whether you want something fresh and healthy or indeed an unhealthy treat! It is a good way for you to start your day.

Popular marine exhibit

There are plenty of activities on the island, but guests particularly like the Living Reef which allows them to see live coral and different types of fish that would usually only be seen if you went diving. A marine biologist gives informative and interesting talks.

Negative Reviews

A little too scheduled

Guests have to book on a morning for when and where they would like to dine that evening. If they do not, they may find that their preference is unavailable. Some guests want to be more relaxed on holiday and find this too restrictive.

In need of some TLC

Guests say that the resort is quite old and is now looking somewhat tired and rundown, having dated decoration and being poorly maintained in places. Guests feel that it is overdue for refurbishment to generally update and to attend to repairs.

Housekeeping could be improved

Some guests did not feel that the housekeeping provided the best of services. Rooms are not always well cleaned and may be cleaned quite late, so rooms are not always ready when you return in the afternoon.
