Almost Paradise

Our early morning trip to the Sydney Airport was as smooth an operation as one could ever hope for. We left the hotel at 6:30 AM, headed across the street to the the train stop underground, and were at the airport by 7:00 AM. Even checking in with Virgin Australia was simply, walking up with no wait. At security, Lynne automatically removed her …

Animal magic

After an early night following our reef exploits, we are awake early and are down to breakfast by 6:30. It has rained a lot overnight due to the humidity which gives the morning a slightly fresher feel.

As Queensland is now one of the few places you can still hold a Koala, it seems a shame not to give this a try so we hop on a …

Happy Australia Day from down under! An early start this morning, down to breakfast and on the coach to Port Douglas marina for our day cruise out to the outer Great Barrier Reef.

The trip out to Agincourt Reef takes around an hour but goes quickly as you are given refreshments (traditional Lemington cake for Australia Day) and various …

A Great Week at the Reef

Our last major excursion of the trip was to the Great Barrier Reef. We spent 5 days exploring land and sea. And by sea, we mean hotel swimming pools some days. We thought we had seen plenty of animals in Sydney but the adventure continued this week. What continues to be the funniest part of this vacation stop is all the different animals that you …

The Mossman Gorge & Ladies night out!

A travel blog entry by kelleeward21

I got up nice and early today and headed out to the Mossman Gorge. There is a great trail walk about 3km around past the river and up into the rainforest. I got there nice and early and managed to have the place pretty much to myself. You can swim in the water holes there and it is one of the most picturesque places I have ever seen. So many shades …

    Needs An Update

    We were a little disappointed in this Sheraton property. The location is great and the pools and ocean are great. The disappointment came with the hotel and food. When you think of a SPG property, you think of a high end experience. This hotel is in need of an remodel. The furniture in the rooms and the hotel are very dated. The bathrooms are very dated as well. We were also not impressed with the food at the restaurant considering the expensive prices.

    This place is lovely but run down. The rooms are a spacious and very tidy 4 star. The grounds are huge, but unkempt. Dirty paths and pool, broken deck chairs. The place was almost deserted when I was there. Really comfy beds and great service though.

    This resort is Heaven!

    from

    If you love swimming in huge shimmering lagoons, you will absolutely adore this resort!

    (Almost) Wonderful

    from

    We went as part of a tour in November (a quiet time at the hotel) It's apparently the busiest in July / August, the Australian winter. When we were there the staff ratio was (almost) one to one. We were given initially a "musty" smelling room (we asked for a No-smoking room-so it was possible that it was smoke..but more likely that the room hadn't been used for sometime.There was no problem in changing the room which was much better. In November, the pools and lagoons were wonderful. Other people on the trip enjoyed evening meals,(we only had Breakfast!) There is an excellent Bus service that goes from opposite the hotel into Port Douglas. The (Free) Hotel shuttle bus stops at dusk! It was without doubt the best hotel we stayed in on our 7 stop tour.

    We were very disappointed

    from

    We were very disappointed upon arrival at the Sheraton Mirage . . . I cannot imagine how it ever gets such good reviews. The complex in nice but the rooms were awful. They are in need of a major overhaul. We were even upgraded because we are Starwood Gold Members, but it did not help. We could have sworn that the rooms were decorated in the 1970s and then never given a second look. It may be a nice hotel on Australian standards, but if you are used to luxury hotels/resorts in the US -- you are not going to be happy here. The pools were so filthy they were unswimmable. Although we loved Port Douglass, we would not go back to the Sheraton Mirage.

    Most luxurious resort in Far N.Queensland/Perfect Ocean v. rooms W/Balcony

    from

    My husband and I stayed here Nov.15-19th and wish we could have stayed another week!! This is now one of our favourite "TOP 5"- 5 STAR hotels in the world, even better than Shangri-La in Sydney. Our fav. is in Maui!! Anyways, I must first comment on all the NEG.ROOM REVIEWS - YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!!!!!!! We had a ground floor, lagoon view w/balcony by request that we paid a lot for - but worth every penny! DO NOT GET A GARDEN OR MIRAGE ROOM FOR THEY HAVE NOT BEEN RENOVATED!!!!! I spoke to the management personally before our trip several times because I had heard so many neg. reviews on different websites about tired grounds/rooms. Tracy Lamont (reservations supervisor on property) was honest enough to tell me that only the Superiour Lagoon Rooms (the one we had) had yet been renovated - though they all will be renovated soon. You can only "request" a balcony, but if you're persistent like I am and contact them directly several times (ask for Tracy) then hopefully you'll get the balcony guaranteed.

    Excellent grounds, tired rooms

    from

    Stayed here for 2 nights in late November, just before the summer travel rush, so the resort was fairly deserted. I requested early 11am checkin and was told when I arrived to wait for housekeeping. After numerous protesting, they assigned me to another room - but I have no idea why this was even an issue for them.

    Truly a 5 Star!

    from

    The staff were extremely helpful. I requested a doctor to visit me and he was in my room within 1/2 hour. Justine, in guest relations, guided us to the best reef cruise and dinner reservations. We wanted to stay longer. Next time it's a week in Port Douglas!

    We had a very nice stay here

    from

    My husband and I spent five days at this hotel and had a great time. The room was very nice--it had been updated recently. Very roomy accomodations. The hotel does not have views of the ocean, but that's ok because it preserves the beauty of the beachfront. It makes the beach look unspoiled in comparison to other beaches around the world (Hawaii, South Beach, etc.). We felt welcomed by the hotel front desk staff, which is a rare experience nowadays, it seems. All in all a great time had at this hotel.

    It could be great, but....

    from

    It could be a great Hotel but.....it would have to have a protected beach in front of the hotel, the decoration is not nice at all, the rooms are dark, the service at the restaurants is very week. Good breakfast but lunch is very poor. The bakery is terrible, same for the service there. The golf is great and all the rest of the service is quite effficient.

    Fantastic

    from

    This place is amazing, such friendly staff, great service,The breakfast is fab! Its a great place well worth a stay.

    Paradise

    from

    In one word PARADISE, pure bliss. The swimmable lagoons are fabulous and breakfasts out of this world. Staff very friendly and not too far from Port Douglas, lots to do in area and nice 15 min walk along beach to Port Douglas. Pity it's so far away as I would go back in a minute.
