We were also right next to the lagoon which was a huge bonus! The area is lovely and is also only a short car journey into cairns. Would definatly recommend this place to...

I booked this apartment for my wife to arrive a week before me while working in Sydney for a family Holiday pre Christmas. We ignored some of the poor reviews in lieu of the good ones. When my wife arrived after travelling for over 30 hours it was like a squat with dirt & cockroaches & indescribable stains, droppings &...

Hi Robecco2, It's unfortunate I was not able to speak with you either on the day or since. However, as your wife threatened our staff with a TripAdvisor review, I'm not surprised this was your first choice of contact. Let's add some context to some of these comments. Firstly, the completely unfair assessment of Coral Sands. Your wife checked in...

We had been thinking about holidaying in Cairns for some time and my wife was able to find a 3 bedroom apartment at this resort, online, at a very competitive price, so we booked it for 6 nights in early November. We arrived after the reception had closed but were left with clear instructions on how to obtain our room...

We stayed at Marlin Cove Resort in October for three nights, when the time came to leave, I really didn't want to. The resort itself is very comfortable, the two bedroom apartment was like a home away from home. Kitchen with everything you could need, washer and dryer all came in handy! The pool area was like a tropical oasis!...

From check in where we were greeted with smiles and friendliness. The 2 bedroom apartment was huge, so clean, everything we needed except for an electric beater which was quickly supplied to our apartment along with the sticky tape we forgot to bring with us. So nice to have such wonderful people running this place. The pool was incredible from...

We recently stayed here for 6 nights on a family holiday, we frequently travel to cairns and decided to give this hotel a try. Overall it wasn't a bad hotel if it was better maintained I probably wouldn't stay here again though unless it was really cheap. Pros -the pool that resembles a beach was really nice (fully sheltered for...
