The island itself is very pretty. It's close to the mainland, and would be an easy visit by ferry. There are pools and animals for children to look at. Staff was friendly. Food at Mermaids was actually very good! The horrible filthy facilities. Bathrooms were mostly "out of order" or overflowing with waste, and those were the ones meant for restaurant use! The lobby facilities were equally as bad. An "out of order" pool, the one with the swim up bar, was disgusting as well, but you had to walk by it to get anywhere at that end of the property. A side note- $150 for moorings are way more than Hamilton, and of course you don't get the power and water. Makes for an easy choice if stopping by private vessel.
Loved the location, natural environment, rooms well appointed, fairly laid back environment, many of the staff were dedicated and trying their best. Common areas not well maintained, severely under staffed for the peak period, not enough food options or available dining locations, most activities booked out, not much attention to detail, staff a bit disenchanted and disinterested in customer's experience (until it turns into a complaint).
I did not like the food got sick one night on food in the best resturant , and the staff on whole island was to young and unorganized and did not know much , and they charged to much for everything we did , and we will never go back to Daydream Island again....
Most of it was excellent a real getaway from busy city life. The spa was brilliant if a little pricey. But during the day so many things to do and so many places to relax. The food offered by all the restaurants was the same so variety was an issue. In addition there are very few activities to do after dark except the open air movie.
It's a beautiful setting with friendly helpful staff. The island is sensitively developed to enhance the natural features.
