Quite enjoyed our visit to these apartments. The unit we had was on the third floor, overlooked the netted swimming beach and had a nice balcony. We stayed for two weeks and this was perhaps a bit too long, a week would have been better. The bus stop was just across the road, with buses during the week running every...

The apartment was exactly as I expected, large and spacious with a great view of the beach. There was AC in both livingroom and bedroom, a very comfortable bed, nice and clean bathroom with a washing/drying machine (perfect for me since I came from six days of riding), kitchen well equipped with a large fridge.

This apartment building is located directly across from the swimming beach which makes it very convenient. It was nice to have the 2 air conditioners, washer, dryer and a view of the water. However, the unit we stayed in needs a major update. The bedding, pillows and towels were substandard and the whole place warants some freshening up.

This was our fourth visit to Palm Cove but our first stay at Marlin Waters Apartments and we loved it.

Every apartment has a view of...

This is the place to stay when you want a no fuss, very reasonably priced quiet break. The apartment is well located, across the road from beach and walking distance to all restuarants.
