Ramada Resort on Breaka's beach

Just noticed Breaka's being advertised as above on Escape Travel's website.

When did this happen?

What has happened to George ?

Yes it's true, although for the present no major changes down at Breakas.

George (Winslet) has sold management rights to Ramada but he is still a shareholder in the property. George is essentialy a real estate developer and is pursuing this direction in Vanuatu.

There are plenty of other places in and around Vila who advertise as family friendly.

Try Le Lagon.

Yes agree Jen,

Breakas is adults only and has been for years.

Also look at the Palms, now the Holiday Inn if you want a big hotel chain to stay.

Hi ShellyAdelaid,

There are plenty of other places to stay in Port Vila that welcome families with young children. The Ramada chain bought the management rights of this property and inherited the resort's No Children Policy in the process, so no surprise there.

Frankly, it is a very successfull policy employed by an increasing number of accommodaytion operators...they are doing their job: meeting market demands.

No one is forcing you to stay there, so do not understand your point?

Note: your baby might be a quiet one (lucky you) but what about the neighbouring family with the baby that has a screamer...at all hours of the night and spoils someone elses annual holiday...or wakes your baby every night and you in the process?

I am a father and had more than my share of sleepless nights trying everything for my baby girl to quieten down. I would never wished this on others, especialy when they have paid a lot of money to rest on their holidays.

Check out Le Lagon, The palms, Snorkelers Cove, and many others that specificaly target your demands.

Cheers,

John

Oh please ShellyAdelaide – there is nothing wrong with different places for different people. My son is a teenager (or all most) and I don't want to spend it in a place with screaming/tantrum throwing 3 year olds - believe me I love kids and its part of life (of course my son was always perfect!) but I am so glad I don't have to any more. I am sure your 5 month year old is gorgeous but different people at different stages of life don't necessarily want to be around with kids – like when you are on your honeymoon and that’s Breakas predominate target market. Pre 5 month old did you look for a kid free resorts? Life changes for all of us. What I think is awful when you are in a kid friendly resort and you get the looks from those without kids when they jump in the pool – I say go to a kid free resort! So as long as I have options as well as others what is wrong with choice?

By the way you can stay at Breakas in the apartments! They welcome kids

Cheers

Suzi
