Stayed at Marlin Waters beginning of Jan 2015. The apartment, on the third floor, was clean and comfortable with nice views. Rhonda and Chris were knowledgeable and helpful with tours and transport. Palm Cove is a small resort and Marlin Waters is conveniently situated to restaurants and bars, nothing being too much of a flat walk away. We didn't use... More

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!
