Was blown away by the value offered. Stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment, it was like a home away from home. The pools are just gorgeous and the staff very friendly and accommodating. My only gripe was that I wasn't told there had been animals in the apartment. I'm severely allergic and only just managed on pharmacy medications. Overall though...

The apartment was lovely and well appointed for the whole family. The pool/beach area was fabulous, well loved by our kids. Great location. The charge for the "free wifi" was an annoyance on reviewing the bill.

We stayed here for 13 nights and thoroughly enjoy it. The accommodation was excellent, spacious, modern and clean with everything supplied, the surroundings were really nice including the wallabies which visited most days amoungst other wild life, kookaburras, curlews, cockatiels and the fruit bats roosting in the tree near our apartment. The pool area is good for younger children with...

I loved staying at the Marlin Cove Resort. The location, Trinity Beach, was great; the unit was well appointed and spotless; the managers were wonderful to deal with and nothing was any trouble. A joy to stay there; I will definitely return.

The apartment we had at Marlin Cove was spacious beyond our expectations and very private. No tripping over other guests and it was nice to have a large enough apartment to have plenty of personal space. Loved the lagoon pool and gardens and the staff were all nice.
