An Australian Gold Coast Holiday For The Kids - And It's A Ripper
Posted Oct 31 2011 8:53am
If you're like me, you probably dread taking your kids on holidays. Of course, I have five kids so that does make life a little awkward. However, a holiday, on the Gold Coast, that's designed for both the parents and the kids certainly tweaked my interest. Once I saw it was at the Hilton Surfers Paradise, I started to have doubts. I mean, the Hilton - that's expensive, and do they really want kids?
I have to say I am very pleasantly surprised. Yes, it's the Hilton, but it's not going to cost you an arm and a leg. Do they want kids, most definitely. This is a holiday with them in mind. In fact, they haven't even balked at the idea of five of them (mind you, the youngest is only three).
So what is this holiday? It's called the Doing it for the kids package and it involves a ‘Mini-Hilton Passport’, which entitles the family to:
a family pass to Skypoint Observation Deck,
two games for the family at the nearby Strike Bowling
two hours use of the hotel’s personal movie theatre and gaming system
plus pop-corn, soft-drinks and milkshakes – surely enough to keep everyone satisfied
Still not happy, how about a full buffet breakfast for the family each morning and a complimentary upgrade to a two bedroom Deluxe Ocean Residence. The package will save you up to $260 per night and is available until 31st May 2012.
The Gold Cost has a lot to offer families to begin with. This package just puts the icing on the cake. First class accommodation that is affordable; activities that kids will enjoy (and so will the parents if you relax and become a kid again for a day or two); and the famous Surfers Paradise beach. Add some of the theme parks and you have a perfect holiday.
We've planned ours and I'll write more when we get back. For once, I am actually looking forward to a holiday for change. You can find more information on this holiday package at the Hilton Surfers Paradise website - just go to Special Offers, Packages, and scroll down until you find Doing It For The Kids. Can you believe it - the Hilton Hotel in the middle of Surfers Paradise welcoming kids.
