Great spacious rooms, excellent staff, great buffet breakfast. Swim up pool bar was great. Food and beverage priced the same as normal. Was relived that the island doesn’t take advantage of overcharging. Lovers Cove is great to chill out for afternoon drinks and watch the sunset. Would definitely recommend for a romantic, chilled out trip away.

Had a perfect 7 night stay at Daydream. Plenty of activities to do, food was fantastic (especially at Infinity the upstairs restaurant), staff were super friendly and helpful, pools were great, and lovers cove for snorkeling and sunset viewing was amazing. Oh and bingo! Couldn’t miss bingo, prizes were surprisingly good. Feeling very relaxed and refreshed after our stay.
