Recent guest reviews

Spent 2 nights here in a 2 bedroom apartment over looking the pool. The apartment was great, well set up, very clean. Pool was great, kids loved it! Would highly recommend room 205. Wish we could have stayed longer!!!

We stayed in 2 bedrooms apartment for 3 nights and could not fault this place. I asked for ground level and was given corner apartment 216 right in front of lagoon pool which is perfect. Rooms are clean & spacious and lagoon pool is great specialy for my little boy. Great value for money!

This is a wonderful resort and great value for money! The staff are very friendly and helpful with organising day tours. Only minutes to the beach, shops, cafes and restaurants. The onsite lagoon pool is beautiful! We had a 2 bedroom apartment with 2 bathrooms- luxury for the family! Thank you, we will be back!

Our apartment was spacious and clean overlooking lagoon pool. Everything was easy to access and we used the tennis court on several occasions. Short walk to the beach and a couple of good cafes even closer than the beach. We found this an excellent mid-range option, the gardens and grounds are really established and well looked after in keeping with the Cairns beaches 'vibe'.

We stayed for 3 x nights in an upstairs 2 bedroom apartment mid week. The resort amenities were great. Lagoon pool is fantastic. Apartment was very modern and well appointed. Very comfy king bed! Very clean and tidy. There were a number of resident wallabies around the grounds which was great for the kids. Marginal walking distance to main beach but we had a rental car anyway so wasn't an issue. Close to major shopping centres for food etc. Bit of vehicle noise during the day due to building works around lagoon out back. Not major. Would definitely stay again.

The apartment we stayed in was very spacious and comfortable, quite modern. Had everything you need for couples or families. Loved the lagoon pool. It was too far for me to walk to the beach but fit people would probably not have a problem with it!

Trinity beach has everything you need for some days of relaxing holiday: a nice beach, some restaurants, fine weather ... We stayed at marlin cove for a week and liked the place very much. Our two bedroom appartment was well equipped and had even two bathrooms. Everything was clean, quite new and in good working order. The living area was spacious and the AC quite silent. The lap pool was great, the lagoon pool might be a joy for kids, the sauna should have a shower attached, one out of four barbecue places was in good shape, the others a bit negelected. We loved the wallabies hopping past our veranda and the birds passing by in twilight. But the "free wifi" is only half of the truth. Actually, you get 500 MB for 24 hours for only one device included. For the three of us that was inconvenient, so we bought a 7 day package with 5 GB for 30 keys. The connection was painfully slow and stopped to work on the second day for about 20 hours.

OMG worst place I have ever stayed. Opened the door to stale cigarette smoke. Dirty dishes and a dirty smelling dishwasher. Couldn't eat in this place and tried to stay away as much as I could. Went and bought my own glass to drink out of. Couldn't wait to get out.

I have been staying at Marlin Cove for holidays for close to 8 year's. It is a lovely place to stay for couples and families and is also very quiet. It is just a short walk to the beach and to Trinity Beach Tavern.

We only stayed here 1 night before heading up to Cape Tribulation but were really impressed with it. The 2 bedroom unit was perfect for our family of 5, with lots of space. The rooms seem renovated, modern and well kept. The kids loved the pool area. Great easy walking to everything at Trinity Beach. We arrived after dinner, but staff had arranged a self check in - easy. Good value for money - recommend!
