    For the people that have been married on Daydream island recently what were your thoughts? I am starting to feel bad for our guests now that I have read so many horrible reviews. My partner and I came over last January and checked the island out for our wedding and it wasn't as bad as everyone is making it out to be. Are people becoming fussy due to what they have read?

    Hi everyone, We have recently booked our family holiday for May 2017. There are 13 of us, so it's not only a long way to come, but also very expensive for us all. After reading these reviews, I'm a little nervous. We have 5 kids making the trip with us, is there plenty to keep them busy?
