“Fantastic”
Reviewed 9 January 2013

We spent a week here over Christmas and it was amazing, the room has been renovated though the oven was ancient but it didnt ruin our holiday, it was spacious the beach across the road and clean. Well Done And would definitely be back for another holiday

Room Tip: Bottom Floor is good for kids as the pool is right there. But all the rooms are the same

We came back to Marlin Waters after having such a great time here 18 months ago this place is still FANTASTIC!
What more could anyone want:- Great water views, spotless rooms, top restaurants and cafes all around and hosts that really care that we are happy. Nothing is too much trouble for them, arranging tours, advising where to eat and what to see and do.
We would not stay anywhere else in Palm Cove.
Can't wait to come back to Marlin Waters again!

This is a great set of apartments run by friendly, helpful obliging hosts. It is a few steps away from the sand and there are cafes and restaurants on your doorstep. The apartment we stayed in was quiet, spacious for 2, clean and practicable. You have a great view from your balcony watching the ocean and the "passing parade" The block is 4 storeys but there is a lift if you don't want to exercise! As we had a later flight out of Cairns we requested a late checkout and this was no problem for Rhonda & Chris. Again, thanks for a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: The rooms on the top floor (4th) have a great view and are quiet. There is a lift.

It was a perfect holiday and the accommodation and hosts were the main components. The apartments are located at the "sweet spot", they are close to everything and have eye catching views and pleasant sounds (ocean and birds) too. Rhonda and Chris were very hospitable and obliging to all our requests. Having a meal at the balcony (cooked in the well equipped kitchen) was the highlight of the day. Definitely recommended.

Marlin Waters Beachfront Apartments are spacious, clean, well furnished and strategically located with magnificient views of the sea and easy access to restaurants, coffee shops, shops, the beach, bus stop.......
The welcome shown by Rhonda and Chris was second to none, They have time for every guest and no query or request is too much trouble. As well as managing the complex extremely efficiently, they are top class tour organisers. They show incredible knowledge of all the trips on offer from Palm Cove as well as a remarkable intuition of what will suit guests.
My stay in Marlin Waters was both relaxing and exciting. the the ten days passed all too quickly.
Marlin Waters is suitable for singles, couples and families.
Many thanks to Rhonda and Chris for a fantastic ten days.

Our stay at Marlin Waters was nothing but enjoyable. On our arrival we were greeted by Rhonda
whose smiling face made us feel so welcome. She took us to our one bedroom apartment that
was spacious, clean and had all that one would need for a couple of weeks stay. The view from
the balcony was so relaxing as we were situated just across from the beach. Rhonda and her husband Chris provided us with lounge chairs that we were able to take over there which made lying on the beach more pleasurable. Both these lovely people made our stay great, nothing was a problem and their suggestions of places to go were appreciated. Marlin Waters was the BEST and kept immaculatley inside and out. Thankyou for memorable stay. D & P

Stayed at Marlin Waters apartment 10, early July 2012.
Centrally located with shops, restaurants and most importantly the patrolled beach right across the road.
Comfortable accommodation with sofa bed for our 13 year old son.
Quite spacious and well equipped for 1 bedroom apartment.
Views from the balcony were fantastic!
Under cover parking at the rear of the block was a bonus.
The on site managers were very friendly and helpful.
Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Try to book an apartment on Level 1 or higher.
