Four people stayed here for two nights in a two bedroom apartment. The apartment was fully self contained. Although the apartment was clean, there was quite a bit of dust around the air conditioning unit and behind the tv (both areas in view of guests). Also the quality of Austar reception was below average with it regularly dropping out. Our...

Accommodation was value for money for peak season. Lap pool heated however lagoon pool was not. Games room not up to standard. Rooms adequate however ambience of apartment lighting was poor. Pillows were extremely high and too firm no pillow swap available, would advise taking own pillows or buy from nearby target as we did. Good location.

We stayed for 10 nights on our recent holiday. It was a great place with everything we needed. The kids loved the lagoon pool, hunting for tiny frogs in the rain, and all the wallabies. Location is a good base for activities all in and around Cairns. We stayed in a 2 bedroom superior room that was clean and recently...

We stayed there as part of a group of 6 couples (retirees). The apartments are well appointed with all that you need. A lovely free-form pool as well as a lap pool. A terrific communal/BBQ area. A short walk to some terrific restaurants and the beach front. The Owner/managers were very helpful. Thanks for a great stay.

Visiting this place wasbok. We thought the apartment was a huge place but the decor a little dated. Although the bed was fine. The wasmachine and dryer comes in handy. Also Trinity Beach is a quiet place (season autumn). We had a tastefull breakfast at tge Lime Tree and a really good diner at L' Unico.

After a hectic few weeks, we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at Marlin Cove Resort. Luckily we called earlier to let reception know we were running late, and they put our key in a safe, along with directions on how to get to our room for when we finally got there. When we walked into our apartment, we couldn't...

We stayed at this resort for 4 nights in April 2016. From check in to check out the staff and resort were fantastic. The pool was close by and the kids loved it. The only fault I could find with this resort is the car park spaces were very tight, if you had a big car, you may struggle to...

Had 3 nights here 11/3/16 to 14/3/16. We really enjoyed our stay. This is a very well set out and presented resort. We had a good size 2 bedroom ground floor, self catering appartment near the pool that had its own parking space. Great value and a short walk to Trinity Beach. Found the young lady on the reception to...
