We have just returned from a long weekend at Palm Cove & stayed at Marlin Waters again. The standard of the room & hosts are still very high. We arrived on a late flight from Sydney & there was an envelope outside reception directing us to our assigned room - no hassles for late arrivals.
We were on the 3rd floor for this stay & the unit was clean & well appointed - the bathroom & kitchen had been refurbished & the decor was lovely.
We realised the next morning that the drinks etc we had placed in the fridge the night before were not cold - so went and saw reception. They quickly sprang to action & firstly arranged for our perishables to be placed in a spare fridge & then arranged a repairman. As the outcome was that the fridge needed further work - instead of making us pack up & move us to another unit (which was an option) - they simply removed the old fridge & brought in a working one from another unit & repacked all our perishables in the replacement fridge.....very very seamless.
Since we were here in 2011, the Surf Club has opened up new premises next door - which is very handy for breakfast or dinner.
We highly recommend Palm Cove as a destination - it is so relaxed and the next time we are up in Far North Queensland, Marlin Water will be the place we'll stay at - again.
