“PERFECT in every way!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

My husband and I traveled to Turks and Caicos for the first time and will be back many more times. We fell in love with the island and the people within it. The villa is perfect in every way. The bed is extremely comfortable, the rain shower is divine, and all that you need is provided for you along with beach chairs, cozy beach towels and an ice chest. Plus an amazing manager Kim. We could not ask for more. Kim greeted us every morning for breakfast with a smile and listened to all of our adventures that we had experienced on the island. We made friends and memories for life.

This was our first stay at One on Marlin. My wife and I wanted a quiet escape, away from the hustle of the beach but still close to everything (including the beach). We were not disappointed.

Unlike most hotels, the villas are free standing buildings mostly with 4 units per villa. That means that there are two exterior walls, on one side there was a private porch and the entrance on the other side. We never heard our neighbours except when we were outside, and only if they happened to be arriving or leaving. Which was fine for us. There is a forest of greenery and flowering plants surrounding the villa, so the porch was private. This is an adult only resort (again, perfect for us).

The villa was well appointed, including an ample bar, with everything being upscale. There is a lot of attention to detail. For example, most hotel room coffee is terrible, but here a high quality coffee is provided. I'm always suspicious of any food or drinks that are provided (they're usually way over priced), but I didn't see any difference between the local store prices; the bar is well stocked. There's also a convection/microwave, and meals can be made at the villa. The bed is super comfortable (felt like a Tempur Pedic), and the a/c is very quiet, making for a good night's sleep. Beach towels are provided (in addition to shower towels).

The resort is located close to the centre of the island, so is is close to everything. We rented a small car which allowed us to do some exploring. It's only a few minutes drive to the beach, which has plenty of parking.

The staff were very pleasant, and worked hard to make sure we were looked after.

We are a value conscious couple, and this resort is excellent value.

My wife and I made a great decision in coming here. This was our second visit to Providenciales , One-on-Marlin would be our first choice if we were to come back. The resort was different than the run of the mill beach places. The rooms were modern and comfortable, and had everything we could possibly need. From the moment we arrived, the personal caring service provided by Kin and the others made us feel like family. There also provided with complementary Champaign as my wife and I were there to celebrate our 31st anniversary. You must rent a car at this location, which gave us the chance to explore more places all over the island. We also met Kelly and Gabriella they are the developers,wonderfull people.Kelly told us of the up coming plans, which will make this wonderful place even better .
Thank you to all the staff and hope to see you soon.

If you want something that is a little bit off the beaten path, non touristy and really comfortable, one on marlin in the place to be. From being personally greeted by Kim to her showing us the room, which was exactly as in the pictures, a complementary bottle of wine as it was my husbands birthday, the location, we couldn't ask for anything more. They even thought of beach chairs and a cooler, which was awesome (we didn't use the chairs but an umbrella would have worked.)
Loved it is all i am saying and if and when we go back to TCI, this is the place to be. We even met Kelly one evening. He is the developer and told us of the upcoming plans for the place...we will see you all soon. Thank you for a memorable trip.

If you read no further than this, know this was the best hotel I have ever stayed in. My wife and I arrived at One on Marlin at 9pm at night. This did not stop Kim, the host, from personally greeting us and giving us a tour of the hotel room. As mentioned in every review, Kim is just the best. She is helpful, friendly and always happy to answer questions. The room itself was extremely comfortable, and it was the perfect mix of form and function. The kitchen was stocked with everything we were accustomed to having; we never needed any additional plates/cups/utensils/pots and pans. Having the grocery store a quick 2 min drive down the road was also very convenient. As most other people have said on here, you definitely need to rent a car to get around the island, as directly around the hotel there isn't a whole lot to see or do. Overall we would absolutely stay here again, and even before we left were already planning our next vacation.

I loved staying at One on Marlin. Room is very private, clean, and very romantic. Airport pick up was provided with no extra charge and when we arrived at the resort, Kim came out to greet us. I have to mention "Kim is the best!!!" She was super nice even before we decided to stay at the resort. She did everything, I mean everything to answer all the questions we ask. She recommended few places to try out local food and they were all amazing. Breakfast was provided with no extra charge as well. I will be back for sure.

- I do suggest you to get a rental car, but ask the resort they can help you to find the best rate with rental car company.

This place is great?What a wonderfully relaxing location and space. The rooms are exactly as described. Everything is brand new with all the amenities you need. This property is not your typical island resort and if that is what your looking for, look elsewhere. One on Marlin is genuine, comfortable and the perfect place to lay your head. My wife and I had a great time this past Memorial Day. Kim and the team at One on Marlin are friendly, courtesy and effective. They are knowledgable and strive to make your trip special. Recommend you rent a car and explore. But it will be a pleasure coming back "home" to One Marlin.

Room Tip: Fitness center and pools are not completed yet but will only add to the experience.
