Average quality but a great location

Posted Jul 12, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: Cleaning and maintenance
This hotel is in a great location. Just across the road from the beach and right next to the Surf Club so it was great to sit on the deck and watch teh people activities. Very relaxing. The hotel itself was only superficially clean, but quiet. The water very very hot, the shower leaks and the shower door did not close. The paint was good but the fittings rather dated. You need to buy your own coffee, tea, milk, wifi etc. Towells not replaced but good to have your own washing machine. The managers seemed quite helpful.

Marlin Waters

Posted May 14, 2012
Pros: Looks over the water its best quality.
Location: Loved Palm Cove really felt like I was on holiday. Beautiful setting.
Was advertised as 4 star which I think was over rated. Apartment was dated with several things that needed attention regarding maintenance. Sliding doors from bedroom to bathroom/laundry did not work, screen door to balcony not working. Taps leaked. Lounge was quite old and you sunk down in the cushions if you sat for very long and I am a lightweight. Sitting on balcony when apartment above swept their balcony and all leaf litter fell down on us. As far as location is concerned it was perfect and that made our holiday very enjoyable. If you are only looking for a base and intend spending alot of time sightseeing I would recommend Marlin Waters but if you wish to laze by a pool and want a bit of luxury go elsewhere. Overall it served our purpose but would choose more carefully next time when choosing from pictures on the net which can be very deceiving. Loved Palm Cove though.

Marlin Waters Palm Cove - lovely place to stay

Posted Aug 21, 2011 on Hotels.com
Marlin Waters was a great place for our stay in beautiful Palm Cove - all apartments have sea views and the 3 storey ( wiht lift) building is just across the Esplanade from the beach. Handy to plenty of cafes etc. Spacious, comfortable, well-appointed and well-equipped. Owners helpful and friendly. Good value.
