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.

Apartment is centrally located right next to the surf club. Stayed up on the third level which had a great view of the ocean. Room was clean and tidy. Hotel managers were great when needed. Even with our late arrival.

Selected Marlin Waters for the perfect location and was not disappointed. Requested a quiet room on an upper floor and was given it. The apartment had everything we needed to make self-catering easy. Wonderful shower!

Thank you to Rhonda and Chris for making our stay a great one! Our self contained unit was fantastic, clean and comfortable with no outside noises! Our room was by the pool with the ocean views directly over the road! What more could you ask for? Great hosts and nothing was too much for them. Marlin Waters was just a... More

Wow, We had such a wonderful week. The best location in far north queensland, next door to the surf club, directly opposite the safe swimming beach area, surrounded by wonderful restaurants, bars and shops. The accommodation is very clean, and stylish with absolute beach front views. We had our own balcony in the 1 bedroom self contained appartment, which also... More
