We had an excellent week here from June 2015. The apartment was quiet, well appointed, large, clean and very comfortable. The location was perfect overlooking the Strand, Castle Hill and the islands. From our seventh floor unit, we had excellent views of the sunsets, the islands and the ocean. We were within walking distance of shops and restaurants. Excellent kitchen,... More

I had a large two bedroom apartment, with fantastic view of the water. The 'Strand' is at your doorstep with plenty of eateries and great Ice-cream cafe end of the road. I stayed at the Mariners North for 3 months on a business project and loved everything about it. Having access to Internet and cable TV free of charge was... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in July & had a great time. Apartment was clean & bright & had plenty of space. It was well equipped & even small details like a laundry basket wasn't overlooked (important with 3 kids & the amount of laundry they get through). We paid extra for the balcony & was glad that we...

We loved staying in this apartment. it was spacious, clean, well equipped and secure. Fantastic view and a great location. There was plenty of room for the two of us, our 18 month old and granny.

Brilliant views, location and space. 5 of us stayed here and there was ample room. Great parking and location. Modern rooms, our apartment was fully contained which was handy. We made good use of the pool. There's a tennis court and bbqs too but will have to do that next time!

We had a two bedroom unit overlooking the tennis court towards the beach and mountain. It was clean and spacious but the blasting of the pool pump - directly outside the room and (bizarrely) with no noise insulation ensures that you won't be listening to the relaxing waves here. It's an apartment so you get no room servicing which actually,... More

We stayed at Mariners North in January 2015 for a few days. The place is nice, however even though we booked months in advance, the notion of kids and a discount booking seemed to provide us with only a ground floor apartment even though I asked for a view if possible on the booking form. The apartments however were very... More
