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 a few nights here for myself and my family after returning from the Gold Coast before heading home and was very impressed with the place.

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

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.

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

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.
