We were warmly welcomed by Dave at the airport with a fresh flower lei. We stayed in the only separate studio room which is tucked away in a quiet, private corner of the resort away from the road with noone walking passed. The studio will suit you if you want privacy, but you may feel a bit left out of...

Had 6 relaxing days at the secluded, quiet Daydreamer Resort. Great facilities and wonderful service. Dave and Sheryl were gracious hosts only too willing to give advice, make bookings, arrange transfers or just have a friendly chat. It was lovely to be met at the airport and greeted with a lei. We valued their recommendations which were spot on- Vaima's,...

We enjoyed our stay immensely. The room was simple, but spacious. We loved clean sheets every other day. And thank God for the ceiling fan over the bed!
