Families filled 4 mile beach today with the perfect 30 degrees weather and water crystal clear celebrating the end of the stinger season.
This was our third visit to Port Douglas, but a first (and hopefully not the last) at Reflections. It is a small complex within a stones throw of 4 Mile Beach (we needed those daily walks), Macrossan Street shops and the Port’s great restaurants. We found our two bedroom apartment (No.8) very comfortable, roomy, exceptionally well equipped, very clean – all in all great value for money. The pool and gardens are well maintained. Suffice to say Reflections is an easy and comfortable place to stay and we look forward to another visit around the same time in a few years. We visited the last week of April when Port Douglas was not too crowded and the weather warm with some light rain.
