Thoughts from kids who love wildlife
There was a wallaby that liked to spend rainy days on our porch. We named her peekaboo. The apartment was great and the wildlife added to the atmosphere. We saw lots of wallabies, lots of birds, and one snake all on the grounds. On our last day we saw a curlew protecting its nest.

4/10 Fair

Very disappointed with our unit. It was advertised as a luxury unit but was definitely not luxury. The unit was dirty, had to buy cleaning products to clean the kitchen. All cutlery and crockery had to be put through the dishwasher and then scrubbed to get them clean. Mould in bathroom and vanity cupboard door was hanging off and chipped. Chairs from outdoor setting some of the most uncomfortable we've ever sat on even with cushions. Bedside and wardrobe drawers were dirty and had hair in them that we had to clean out. Shower over bath very dangerous to step in and out of. No grab handle, had to use taps and shower screen to steady ourselves. Had to buy a bath mat as bath was slippery. We shouldn't have to clean our holiday unit before we can enjoy our holiday. Little or no noise dampener between floors, could hear everything from very noisy upstairs neighbours. I could go on but probably not enough room.

8/10 Very good

Overall room was spacious comfy bed, but the sprinklers going on and off during night was very annoying as I’m a light sleeper. Our heater in room didn’t work(probably not a massive deal but from Adelaide and night time was cold) the sauna also didn’t heat up very well Very minor things. Would stay again as it was a great location.

6/10 Good

The Marlin Cove Resort is beautiful. On arrival, we found our apartment to be impeccably clean, modern, and well furnished. Lovely gardens and swimming pool close by. I would have given this property 5 stars if it wasn’t for the bed. It was like sleeping on a slab of concrete with springs sticking through. Extremely uncomfortable. I’m glad we only had two nights there. Such a pity as everything else was of such high standard. I would stay there again if the bed was replaced.

Loved this place. Unit was well equipped. Maybe could’ve had some more clean towels though. Beautiful pool area to relax in. 10 minute walk to the beach!
