Marlin Waters is the best place to stay in Palm Cove. Why??? because all the appartments are beach front with wonderful ocean views. It is about 40 steps from the life guarded swimming beach. Rhonda and Chris are wonderful hosts and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. All your tour bookings can be made through Rhonda,... More

It's all been said before. Our apartment was spotlessly clean, well equipped, in a great location and had a lovely view of the beach. Rhonda and Chris, the managers were very helpful in arranging trips to the Barrier Reef and Daintree and with help with our luggage. The pool was lovely. We enjoyed our stay in Palm Cove and would...

Initially I booked Melaleuca Resort Palm Cove for our holidays but we had to move out asap because of the cockroaches presented in our room. Most hotels were full and Marlin Waters Beachfront Apartments basically saved our holidays! The owner was so lovely, friendly and helpful. She gave us an early check in and a late check out (our flight... More

We just returned from our stay at Marlin Waters. It was everything we could have asked for...and more. The apartments have a stunning view of the beach and the Esplanade. It was quiet, peaceful and just perfect. The apartment was filled with sunlight, and had everything we needed. Rhonda and Chris are lovely people, and are happy to help with... More

In 2014 we returned twice to Palm Cove Beachfront Apartments, and when we checked out we booked again for our Christmas Holidays again in 2015, Rhonda and Chris are friendly and accommodating, the pool is fantastic and the view is the best view!!

Our apartment was a top floor, clean and comfortable tiled 1980's beach apartment with lovely views. In a great position, it is a great place to spend a relaxing beach holiday. All the best eatery's are within an easy stroll. The life savers club is right next door (surprisingly it wasn't noisy) and so you just walk across the road... More

The self contained units are situated at the quietest end of Palm Cove with the netted swimming area directly across the road. The unit we stayed in was ideal with everything possible you would need & the best balcony view ever. We dined there often enjoying the spectacular weather! Our unit was spotlessly clean & the small complex has a... More

Loved staying here, lovely apartments straight across from the beach where you can safely swim . Rhonda and Chris were fantastic and nothing was too much trouble . Chris even managed to find us a bottle of wine when we arrived on Good Friday when all shops were closed . We would definitely stay again .

Could not have asked for a better location, stayed over the Easter weekend. We had a bonus being on the 4th floor, with million dollar views from our balcony, directly opposite the swimming enclosure and in the heart of the restaurants. We intend to come back as it is just the perfect location. We cannot speak highly enough of this... More
