Thank you for giving me the privilege of staying at Ramada Port Douglas from 17.3. to 21.3. through the GrabIt program. Imagine having my former classmate & another friend (both from overseas) staying with my grand-daughter & me in a spacious two-bedroom apartment.
We enjoyed ourselves by going to Green Island on St Patrick’s day on the Reef Rocket & seeing the wonderful Great Barrier Reef at close range on the semi-submarine & glass-boat. Continue reading →
We had an amazing time, it was a beautiful wedding at Wyndham Resort Denarau Island and we met some amazing people who celebrated our wedding with us. The resort staff were wonderful and provided us with as much support as possible. Continue reading →
Wineglass Bay – Happy and healthy again (Kelly and Ted)
The three of us get to Tullarmarine Airport with plenty of time to spare – all good so far. Join the endless check-in queue and master the machine that disgorges our boarding passes. Join the next queue (which is as long as a bad movie) and check in our luggage. Still time to spare so we have a cuppa and a snack. Continue reading →
I wanted to take my 87 yo mother for a holiday with my sister as we had done in previous years. Finding a location that was not too taxing travel-wise and where there were attractions to cater for all abilities was the challenge. I had gifted a stay at Port Douglas to some friends as a wedding present and they returned with glowing reports on Ramada Port Douglas (during renovation period!) so I was keen to see for myself now the renos were complete.
The open foyer (plus free roaming cockatoo) and tropical garden courtyard were refreshing and very welcoming. We felt comfortable and relaxed immediately. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful (as always) with planning our activities for the week. After settling into our very spacious 2 bedroom unit we visited the onsite restaurant, Tree Bar & Grill, for some “Sundowners” by the pool (there is a different cocktail special everyday and we tried them all) while we went through our brochures. We dined at the restaurant on a number of occasions and could not have done better anywhere else. Continue reading →
Time is one of those funny things that creep up on you. Before you know it, the first of your children have moved away from home and your youngest is about to begin their final year of high school. So to celebrate our 21st wedding anniversary, my wife and I after 9 years of WorldMark Ownership took the family on our first trip overseas, spending 12 nights in amazing Rotorua, New Zealand. Holidays have changed a lot from the days where a bucket and spade would keep our two children occupied for an entire day at the beach. Thankfully the friendly staff at WorldMark Resort Rotorua lined us up with activities that would entertain our two teenagers while still giving Mum and Dad some time to relax and unwind.
