I loved staying at the Marlin Cove Resort. The location, Trinity Beach, was great; the unit was well appointed and spotless; the managers were wonderful to deal with and nothing was any trouble. A joy to stay there; I will definitely return.

Marlin Cove is also in a great location, only an easy 5 minutes walk to the beach and cafes etc., Apartment we had was spacious, modern and well equipped.... More

The apartment we had at Marlin Cove was spacious beyond our expectations and very private. No tripping over other guests and it was nice to have a large enough apartment to have plenty of personal space. Loved the lagoon pool and gardens and the staff were all nice.

The apartment we stayed in at Marlin Cove was perfect! Extremely comfortable, lovely furnishings and ammenities: even the kitchen utensils were of high quality! The lagoon style pool was beautiful and a big hit with the family. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We would definately recommend this establishment. Only around 15-20mins from Cairns, Trinity Beach is a beautiful location... More

We booked a 2 bedroom apartment but was given a 3 bedroom apartment when we arrived. The apartment was spacious and had airconditioners in the lounge and all bedrooms. Walking distance to swimming beach and convenience store. The apartment is cleaned on arrival and not during your stay. Extra charge for cleaning during your stay. We paid for wifi but... More

The site manager, Stephanie, was awesome. Before arriving, we told her what we wanted and she suggested an itinerary. We tweaked it through email and she booked it. Before booking it, I checked prices and with her local connections she was able to book it for less than we could otherwise find online. The resort itself was very nice. If... More

We were really happy with our 2brm 2 bath apartment. The bedrooms were spacious which is a nice bonus not to be walking into the walls all the time and the couch was actually comfortable to sit on! Great BBQ area and lovely pool. Younger families may find the beach and restaurants and bit far to walk but I have... More

Very nice refurbished (superior 2 bed) apartment. Still smelt new! Has everything. Grounds were tropical yet very well maintained. Lagoon, lap pool, sauna were lovely (spa not working). Stayed for two days before Christmas and could have spent more time however, as always, weighing up saving money on accommodation vs hiring a car. Could walk to a few restaurants from... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment for 3 nights. On first entering the apartment we were greeted by an overwhelming smell of stale cigarette smoke. We would have requested to change rooms, but as we had arrived on a Saturday evening, there was no one physically at reception and thought it would be a hassle. There was no one... More
