We recently stayed at Marlin cove using a groupon voucher. I was a little dubious before we arrived as it appeared to be such a good deal. As it happens we had a wonderful time. The rooms were very well equipped and modern. The pool was right outside our door. Very relaxing surrounds. Close to the beach and local amenities. We hired a car from just down the road and used it to explore the area. The beach is gorgeous. We had a wonderful 5 days here and we would definitely come back here.

Wonderful staff. Clean, spacious, well equipped apartment. Fantastic pools and facilities. Bus on the door step. Great rate. Can't say enough about the place - thanks for a superb 3 nights stay. Even had a family of Walliby's grazing on the back lawn.

We had such a wonderful holiday here we are returning again this year. Less than 500 mtrs from a IGA, pharmacist, butcher, liquorland, brumbys, newsagent and nice takeaway in one direction and less than 500 mtrs from restaurants, car hire, beach, bus stop and the tavern which has a big kids entertainment area.

The rooms were clean, modern and spacious. The pool is massive! Fully shaded and a little beach area for the young ones to paddle in and play in the sand. Two lovely bbq areas with seating. We also found the resort to be quiet and very relaxing and we were assured the resort was booked out.We loved this part. It felt like we could actually relax.

The owner and front staff were so helpful. When our transfer company going home didnt show up (because the transfer compmany could not read their notes correctly) the owner organised a taxi for us, paid for it hersefl and gave us change) We were very impressed with her helpfulness and efficency to sort it all out.

We had such a great holiday and cannot wait to return.

Room Tip: We asked for a ground floor apartment close to the lagoon pool. This was great as we could leave our stroller out the front instead of lugging it up a staircase. We also did not have to worry about children climbing over baclony railings (although our friends were staying upstairs with a tall 18mth old and a 5 year old and they were very safe).We also loved being directly in front of the pool and the bbq area inside the pool area.

This apartment (#205) exceeded all our expectations. Great furnishings, beautiful view of the lagoon pool! We were very comfortable here, definitely the best value we have received on our 2 month roadtrip through Australia. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Beach is walking distance, maybe 5 minutes. There is a Coles 3.5km away to get all your groceries since you'll have a full kitchen.

Loved our stay and would recommend it to anyone!

Absolutely loved our time at Marlin Cove. It deserves better than 4 stars. Was so impressed by the modern units, modern decor, furniture inside etc. Especially the kitchen with it's black marble look counter top and splashback.... wouldn't have minded taking the kitchen home with me! Also for a fussy Mum like me, was impressed by the upkeep of kitchen utensils and facilities. Many resorts have kitchen utensils that have seen better days, but these were all kept like new.
We loved the pool with the sand beach around it, and rocks in the middle. Great for our toddler to splash around in the sand on the edge of the pool.
Also were very happy with the staff on reception, could not have been more helpful. There was no coffee plunger in our room, but they happily obliged and produced one for us when we asked.
