Only 2 restaurants & expensive, no heating in pools (freezing!), outdoor spa is broken, poor customer service, limited & very expensive activities, complaint to management results in no action, limited cleaning of rooms, Daydream island owned by a Chinese group that does not care if you have a bad time.

The best way I can describe it is as being on the set of a Jurassic park set…there was barely anyone there, almost no staff and areas of the island are abandoned. I felt for the device staff as thy are horribly understaffed and look pretty unhappy with life. Despite updates following the cyclone, the general feel is one of an aged resort in desperate need of some proper updates. The rooms feel old and the low ceilings don’t help the general feel. The restaurants are just ok, but are expensive as you’d expect for this type of location. Our stay reinforced why Australians go overseas rather than to domestic locations such as this.

The most amazing activity was having live music being played while watching the sunset at Lovers cove. Amazing! The musician playing over the week starting 23rd of May was excellent. Area of improvement would be to increase environment friendliness I.e. recycling and green waste bins
