We have stayed at Marlin Waters regularly over the last years and keep coming back. Who wouldn't given that Rhonda and Chris make you feel so welcome. Nothing is too much to ask and their knowledge and help is invaluable. The rooms are all ocean facing and are regularly updated, they are well appointed and comfortable with everything you need....

We love Marlin Waters Apartments so much we visit each year. The beachfront situation is amazing. The swimming beach is directly opposite and there are fabulous restaurants surrounding the apartments. We love the fact that the apartments have really great sized living areas. The hosts Rhonda and Chris go out of their way to make our stays enjoyable. Nothing is... More

Sensational view and location but we were disappointed with our apartment. Check with reception when you book to make sure that you get one of the more recently renovated apartments as each apartment is different and some are quite tired. We didn't realize this until we arrived and reception let us know. Really good onsite parking and a very quick... More

We firstly wanted to say a massive thank you to Rhonda and Chris for making our stay amazing. They were so helpful in suggesting tours and organising them for us and their overall friendly demeanour was a pleasure to deal with. Our room was beautiful as well! Highly recommend for those wanting an affordable beachfront holiday! Steph and Kelvin.

If you want an apartment holiday with a guaranteed sea view with hosts with the most ( watch out for Chris's dry sense of humor) then this is for you. So ok it may not be perfect, but is more than made up for by the friendly managers Rhonda and Chris. Nothing is too difficult for them - even if... More

Marlin Waters is in a great location - directly opposite the patrolled and netted area of the beach, and next to the Surf Lifesaving Club, which is worth a visit for good value meals. All rooms have ocean-facing balconies, and ours was clean and well-equipped, with a firm and comfy bed. The bathroom is a little old-fashioned but there's plenty... More

Recently stayed here whilst attending a wedding in Port Douglas. Wonderful! Thanks to Rhonda and Chris, the perfect hosts. Provided us with very helpful information about the area and for our travels further north. We have a camper van and there was no problem in parking it whilst staying in this wonderful apartment.

Marlin Waters is the best place to stay in Palm Cove. Why??? because all the appartments are beach front with wonderful ocean views. It is about 40 steps from the life guarded swimming beach. Rhonda and Chris are wonderful hosts and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. All your tour bookings can be made through Rhonda,... More

It's all been said before. Our apartment was spotlessly clean, well equipped, in a great location and had a lovely view of the beach. Rhonda and Chris, the managers were very helpful in arranging trips to the Barrier Reef and Daintree and with help with our luggage. The pool was lovely. We enjoyed our stay in Palm Cove and would...
