            • Family with children
              4.6

              The grounds, pool and tennis courts were very well kept. Landscape was continually being maintained and upgraded. Unfortunate resort did not put as much effort inside their suites. Area seemed family oriented, usually quiet in the evenings. Resort was located a 15 minuet walk from free public beach, and iga attached to small strip mall. A much bigger mall with a coles and woolworths was a 15 min. Drive. Area a good jump off point to head to attractions, 25 min. Drive to Cairns and to various other destinations. Did notice many very nice looking accomodations in vicinity had vacacies and had posted that there were stand by rates available. This is in high season of July

              Cockroaches, encountered one in bathroom in middle of night. I immediately notified front desk of problem. Desk clerk informed to me it was a fact of life in the tropics. She then attempted to be flippant and said it was probably gone by then. When I insisted that some form of action be done, the desk clerk said housekeeping would be by to spray under fridge and under sink where they live. No one ever came to our suite. There was s sticker on our front door starting the mattresses were professionally sanitized, there was not an date of issue but one of when the mattresses should next be serviced. This led me to wonder if they had infestations of pests, bedbugs. We checked all matresses and they were covered, we did not detect any of the critters and we did not appear to suffer any bites. Upon arrival the suite had 4 rolls of toilet paper, and 2 packets of cleaning soap for each appliance for our family of 5 for 8 nights. Additional soap or toilet paper was to be purchased from front desk.Security was also an issue, only a flimsy door handle lock for front door, although patio doors and windows had metal mesh for security. Do not undestand why they did not go one step further for a better entrance security. There was not an in suite safe, so we had to always carry all valuables eg, passports, extra cash with us. Desk staff was very happy to help us with attractions but only ones that needed a reservation deposit. Claimed that the attractions book up fast, we needed to reserve in timely fashion. I realized afterward the deposit required went to resort for a finders fee. At one point she suggested an other activity to add to one already booked even though it conflicted with reserved time of first and most wanted activity.If we had taken her advice we would have lost whole amount, which was $460. I really felt she did not have our best interest or enjoyment at heart.

              As a family we all enjoyed staying at Marlin Cove Holiday Resort, it was clean, well equiped and spacious. We wre even invited to a meal there which was of the highest quality and was probably better than the food we ate at all the other restaurants we tried, overall very good marks from us . many thanks Marlin Cove Holiday Resort

              Rug in living room was probably not the best quality as it constantly kept shedding its fibres,

            • Family with children

              Beautiful apartment located right next to the pool, light and airy and well air conditioned. Would be happy to have stayed for longer!

              We had no car, which made it a bit inconvenient, but ideal centre for seeing the area

            • Family with children

              From walking into the apartment we were amazed at the cleanliness and space that met us, really comfortable beds, fantastic shower rooms and everything you would need for a self catering apartment, bbq area was great as was the pool.
