These apartments are very well located for beach and cafes. They are serviced by trip companies so there is door to door pick ups. The views are great and the managers are extremely helpful and friendly. We would be happy to stay here again.

Rhonda helped us find a room at the last minute when our other accomodation fell through. Our room was very clean and had everything a young family could need- full kitchenette, washing facilities, a great view and the pool right outside our door. We could walk to everything. We had a great stay and would highly recommend to young families.... More

We enjoyed a week at Marlin Waters recently. Just wonderful. Rhonda and Chris made us feel welcome and helped us with local knowledge. All the apartments overlook the beach. There is a patrolled section of beach in front, which is flood-lit during the evening. It is delightful to sit on the balcony in the evening watching the waves. After a... More

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
