I just returned home from my honeymoon where I stayed at Marlin Cove Resort. My husband and I were extremely happy with our apartment, its immaculate presentation, good styling and all the required amenities. The Austar was a pleasant surprise and we made full use of the onsite tennis court, games room and pools. Above all our favourite part was... More

We have just returned from our holiday and stayed at Marlin Cove. What a fantastic place. Our apartment was large, clean and spacious and perfect for the 4 of us. Our room was near the lagoon pool so perfect for us. We loved it and hope to be back very soon! Nick and Amy

We have enjoyed a break for a week at Easter for the last three years at Marlin Cove Resort. This resort has it all with a lagoon pool complete with a sand beach and spa, a lap pool, boardwalks, tennis court, BBQ areas and a rainforest. The grounds and gardens are magnificent, are well maintained, and are being continually upgraded.... More

I travelled to Cairns for Uni. All I needed was a place to stay, close to amenities while I was there, and that is exactly what I got. It was reasonably priced for that purpose. However, the room was a little out dated, and could have used a refresh. The managers were also friendly and helpful. I would recommend it... More

These units have been developed specifically for budget-conscious travellers, who require a home-base with all the facilities and conveniences of home, but without paying... More

We stayed for a week at this great resort and couldn't find fault with anything. We were lucky enough to be placed in an apartment overlooking the pool and the view was amazing. The rooms were spotless, comfortable and well layed out. The staff were very friendly and helpful and credit must go to the grounds staff for keeping the... More

I have been tricked by the ratings here. First of all when we arrive nobody was here to welcome us. We've had to call them for them to let us know they put our key in a letterbox!!! Not even an email or phone call to warn us (we arrived at 4pm). Then we realized the apartment had only one... More

We realized in retrospect that we should have rented a car out of Cairns airport as public transport around Trinity Beach is very limited. A trip to Port Douglas was prolonged by numerous detours to pick up and drop people off and a great waste of time. Apart from this nuisance we found the location delightful and quite convenient to...
