Fifth stay at Turtle Cove Resort (TCR) in 20 years. The Resort transfer on arrival worth the money unless you’re a newbie; then I suggest a car hire as there is terrific sightseeing in the vicinity. With the Barrier Reef day trip from Port Douglas a must.
Travelled alone for a seven night stay, knowing I’d not need to leave the premises. It’s not GLBTI friendly it’s GLBTI FAMLEE. Manager Bert’ has literally been sucked away out to sea over the years but is joyously back reinvigorating the place with his fabulous original VISION’. Also got to meet the new owner Kelvin who with his wife bought the place and then proceeded to seek out Bert in parts foreign and convince him to return to help recapture the original intent. It’s a match made in heaven and between them are hosts extraordinaire.
BUT, if personality doesn’t do it for you just bring along a collapsible Esky. Fill it with ice, pop in a beverage of choice, grab a towel, beach brolly and scamper on down to your very own beach & luxuriate. Wander homeward at the end of the hard day to comfortable accommodation with all the required accoutrement and movies to boot. Poop, shower, shave and shampoo then meander on down to meet the BEST of TCR.
EMPLOYEES & GUESTS! Without fail on every one of my stays the troops relate stories of lives lived, places born, places seen, people loved, those lost, businesses owned, businesses squandered, medications, passions, politics, property, adventures, astonishing achievements and remarkable 6 degree separations that amaze. The FAMLEE share much to marvel upon.
So I’d like to RECRUIT, RECRUIT ’. TCR delivers grand welcomes, generosity of spirit, hysterical laughter, stories that’ll keep you invited out to dinner for years and grand company on a pristine foreshore swathed in the sound of ocean.
Food terrific, massage REAL FIRM and the nature magic. Highly recommend the place.
