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.

Room Tip: All rooms have beachfront balconies - the ones on ground level have direct access to pool/beach but may not have as good a view as the units above.

We loved our 2nd stay ( 9 nights) at Marlin Waters apartments. We had top floor unit this time which I preferred with the best view of the water and esplanade. Lovely to sit on the balcony in the evening and relax. Apartment was fully furnished with all mod conveniences and very clean .Everything you need for a most comfortable stay. All apartments face the beachfront so all would have a good view.
Right next door to the refurbished Surf Club which serves up a nice meal. Thought it might be noisy right next door and we were on the side of the building adjoining the club but did not notice any noise at all, except the entertainment they had Sunday afternoon which was lovely to listen to.
Rhonda and Chris do a great job of managing these units and were a pleasure to deal with. Hope to see you again sometime.

We spent a week here over Christmas and it was amazing, the room has been renovated though the oven was ancient but it didnt ruin our holiday, it was spacious the beach across the road and clean. Well Done And would definitely be back for another holiday

Room Tip: Bottom Floor is good for kids as the pool is right there. But all the rooms are the same

We came back to Marlin Waters after having such a great time here 18 months ago this place is still FANTASTIC!
What more could anyone want:- Great water views, spotless rooms, top restaurants and cafes all around and hosts that really care that we are happy. Nothing is too much trouble for them, arranging tours, advising where to eat and what to see and do.
We would not stay anywhere else in Palm Cove.
Can't wait to come back to Marlin Waters again!

This is a great set of apartments run by friendly, helpful obliging hosts. It is a few steps away from the sand and there are cafes and restaurants on your doorstep. The apartment we stayed in was quiet, spacious for 2, clean and practicable. You have a great view from your balcony watching the ocean and the "passing parade" The block is 4 storeys but there is a lift if you don't want to exercise! As we had a later flight out of Cairns we requested a late checkout and this was no problem for Rhonda & Chris. Again, thanks for a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: The rooms on the top floor (4th) have a great view and are quiet. There is a lift.
