No need to worry about monsoonal weather. Summer time is hot but that's what's sensational about Palm Cove. Swim in the pool or the ocean in the nets directly opposite Marlin Waters. We have now stayed with Rhonda and Chris quite a few times and love our stays there with everything on your doorstep. So much to do and so... More

We spent four nights in a top floor room and couldn't have asked for anything more. The room was spacious, very clean, and well priced. The patrolled swimming area is just across the road, and restaurants are within a minute's walk.

Marlin Waters Beachfront appartments are in the best spot in Palm Cove. Rhonda and Chris are the best hosts. Appartments are terrific with gorgeous views and convenient access to everything you could possibly want.

My husband and I stayed near for 5 nights.The apartments are in an ideal spot, surrounded by restaurants, cafes and shops and all rooms have a view over the water. There are more stylish places in Palm Cove and it is a little dated but if you are looking for a spacious room with a kitchen, laundry and seperate bedroom... More

After a nightmare start to our 4 night relaxing break in Palm Cove, we stumbled across Marlin Waters and Rhonda was extremely understanding and more than happy to help us out with the remainder of our experience in Palm Cove. We had a lovely apartment on the top floor with beautiful views of the ocean. Rooms are clean, well furnished... More

We had five days here and wish we had booked for longer. Superb location, just a quick walk to all the restaurants and the beach on your doorstep. For couples, a perfect option. The apartments are older but spotlessly clean and comfortable and the views are spectacular. We will be back!

We stayed for 10 nights, wish it was more, Marlin Waters us ideally situated, a Stroll across the road and you're on the beach, a short walk left or right and you have all the eateries you could wish for. We had a top floor apartment, only 4 levels, which is just what we asked for. The place its self... More

Marlin Waters in Palm Cove was perfect for our stay of 7 days. It is situated right across from the beach and within walking distance of shops and restaurants. We stayed on the 3rd floor in apartment 14 with lovely views of the beach through the trees. The trees are planted along the whole beach so all apartment complexes have... More

We stayed at Marlin Waters for 6 nights and because we booked so late we ended up having to switch rooms at the end of our stay to accommodate other guests. For the first part of our stay we were in room 15 on the 3rd floor. It was very clean and the kitchen was well stocked. The ocean view... More
