I stayed at the Ramada at Port Douglas for 8 nights in August 2013 and absolutely loved it. I left home at minus 6 degrees and arrived in port Douglas to a beautiful 26 degrees and a warm welcome at reception. I had booked a great deal online and was so delighted to be upgraded to a wonderful apartment when I booked in. The apartment was very spacious with a fully operational kitchen, lounge room, dining area and two bathrooms with shower and bath. The landscaping was tropical and beautiful and it only took about 5 mins to walk to 4 mile beach. The lagoon type of pool next to the bar was gorgeous. I enjoyed eating at the restaurant and the wait staff were friendly and professional.
The reception staff were very helpful with booking day trips to the barrier reef and daintree rainforest. I used the bus shuttles to go into the shopping and restaurant area in port Douglas.
One of the highlights of my stay was having a couple of massages at the ramada tree tops spa which is located in a timber house in the tree tops. The beauticians were so welcoming and talented masseuses as they were able to sort out an acute low back flare up.
Overall I really enjoyed a very relaxing holiday in a beautiful part of Australia. I would recommend the Ramada as a fabulous place for a wonderful break whether you are on your own, in a couple or are visiting with kids.
