Marlin Cove Resort Reviews



 

Marlin Cove resort for families was a fantastic place to rest our heads every night. Our room backed on to the lagoon pool which made it so easy for the kids. If we needed anything it was there and help to work out what to do was always on hand. Walking distance to the beach and restaurants were so easy and many choices to choose from.

Liked: Loved the Pool and the apartment living
Disliked: need a car to get around

Marlin Cove Resort is a friendly place that is well located as a hub for a 2-week sort of holiday focusing on the various attractions inn the Cairns area, friendly and helpful management, good apartments for a self-catering approach. Shops and beach are close and there are buses, but a car is very handy

Good Points;Bedroom, bathroom and kitchen very clean. Loved the gardens and pool.
Bad points:Carpet and lounge suite needs commercial clean and sanitising, very grubby and smelly. we needed to leave windows open and to use air freshener. Oven had never been cleaned, so smoke alarm would go off.very surprised to find no hairdryer, face cloths or handtowel and we had to purchase our own.
But overall we really liked the place and would go back again.

Liked: Quiet location, gardens, carports, peaceful place.
Disliked: State of carpets and furniture

We stayed at Marlin Cove for just over 3 months from January until May and had a wonderful time here, everything was perfect. The apartments and grounds were fantastic and maintained to a very high standard. It is a five minute walk to the beach and a bus stop is right outside to take you anywhere you want to go. The management were amazing and could not do enough for you. They were always there willing to provide help and advice or even just to have a friendly chat. We would just like to thank you all for making our stay so wonderful. Marlin Cove really is paradise in paradise.
