We stayed at the Marlin Apartments for 4 nights in February 2014. We were in #2, the two bedroom apartment. It was a lovely apartment, with all the amenities, including working WiFi and Sky TV. We were self catering, so used the kitchen quite a bit. Only thing that didn't work well was the oven. The views from the full... More

All reviews are subjective, of course. We loved the Marlin Apartments, we found the owners to be very friendly and helpful, and the Wi-Fi worked perfectly for us. We had a two-bedroom apartment at the front, so probably the best spot and very spacious. All for the price of a one-bed apartment as we just turned up and there were... More

We have just spent 3 nights there in apartment One. It was dated and uncomfortable. The bed was uncomfortable and squashy. The couch was a sofa-bed type - again very uncomfortable. The dining table had 4 chairs but there wasn't room for 4 people. We got a 300ml milk and a single bar of soap. The soap and towels etc... More

My family of 6 stayed at Marlin Apartments for 2 nights and found it extremely enjoyable. The location is awesome with stunning views of the bay. We had one of the front apartments which comfortably slept the 6 of us with plenty of room to spare. It was spotlessly clean and the owner was extremely helpful. We will definetely be... More

Four of us stayed in a one bedroom unit, was a bit small however was sufficient for us as we spent most of our time at the beach. Rooms were very clean, equipped well... More

Only 4 units in block right across from beach. Our unit had modern decor, good kitchen, opened to outdoor setting on deck area. Was raining when we were there so the DVD player came in handy, and was only a few minutes walk to shops. Office is not always attended, so need to call a phone number to find out... More
