Marlin Waters is in a great location - directly opposite the patrolled and netted area of the beach, and next to the Surf Lifesaving Club, which is worth a visit for good value meals. All rooms have ocean-facing balconies, and ours was clean and well-equipped, with a firm and comfy bed. The bathroom is a little old-fashioned but there's plenty...

Marlin Waters is the best place to stay in Palm Cove. Why??? because all the appartments are beach front with wonderful ocean views. It is about 40 steps from the life guarded swimming beach. Rhonda and Chris are wonderful hosts and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. All your tour bookings can be made through Rhonda,...

We enjoyed our stay in Palm Cove and would...

Initially I booked Melaleuca Resort Palm Cove for our holidays but we had to move out asap because of the cockroaches presented in our room.

Our apartment was a top floor, clean and comfortable tiled 1980's beach apartment with lovely views. In a great position, it is a great place to spend a relaxing beach holiday.
