We had long had the impression that daydream island was an affordable resort holiday for families as nonmotorised activities were free, this was confirmed by our travel agent and stated such on our itenirary, NOT SO, you have to hire canoes, snorkel gear as well as mini golf etc etc, the only thing free is the rainforest walk to other side of the island, use of the pools , tho the floaty rings u have to hire, and the outdoor cinema if you can manage to get a seat, we didn't go to this as too late for our little ones, and lastly watching the fish feeding is free, so not much. even the bingo is $10, after playing on two nights my husband won and the prize was a voucher for pool floaty ring hire valued at yep$10, so a bit cheap. living reef is great and this gave our children a lot of joy and entertainment looking at the fish, rays etc. we arrived Xmas eve and told on arrival christmas seafood buffet already booked out for Xmas lunch and dinner and had to have mermaids Xmas set menu for both lunch and dinner at close to $300 for 2 adults and 2 preschoolers for each meal, not happy that we didn't have any real choice. Our accom package inc buffet breakfast daily, despite this and doing very little activities as our kids too small, we spent the same again that our acom package cost. our Christmas Day ended up not too great due to misinformation about dining options initially and staff seeming unhappy to be working, and hard to get service at bars etc, got better after that thou and in all a relaxing holiday. Surprised there is no room service for meals and takeaway not always available, seemed never available when we asked... Took the kids to play mini golf, shops on that side closed and nowhere to get a cold drink, not much shade. TIP refill water bottles in departure lounge as there is cooler water dispenser in there.
