Marlin Waters is in a great location on the beachfront of Palm Cove and every apartment has wonderful views. It is directly across from the flagged swimming area and within walking distance to all the beachfront restaurants.

These apartments are very well located for beach and cafes. They are serviced by trip companies so there is door to door pick ups. The views are great and the managers are extremely helpful and friendly. We would be happy to stay here again.

Rhonda helped us find a room at the last minute when our other accomodation fell through. Our room was very clean and had everything a young family could need- full kitchenette, washing facilities, a great view and the pool right outside our door. We could walk to everything. We had a great stay and would highly recommend to young families....

We enjoyed a week at Marlin Waters recently. Just wonderful. Rhonda and Chris made us feel welcome and helped us with local knowledge. All the apartments overlook the beach. There is a patrolled section of beach in front, which is flood-lit during the evening. It is delightful to sit on the balcony in the evening watching the waves. After a...
