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

Hi Sonia B, Thank-you for taking the time to share your positive experience of Marlin Cove Resort with the TripAdvisor community.

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

I booked the MCR with a bit of intrepidation based on some of the more negatve comments in TA, however it was a good deal and worth the risk. We stayed in a 1 bedroom unit overlooking the pool. It was well away from traffic noise and very quiet. The bedroom was large, the bathroom/toilet are was large, heaps of... More

We stayed at the Marline Cove Resort at the end of our trip to Cairns and found the apartment to be clean, comfortable and modern. The reception were very helpful and the location was good. The reason we haven't given it 5* is because there was a workman directly next door to us using his electric saw until past 6pm!... More
