We needed to escape our busy life, and our chilly winter, and this holiday was perfect for that. We had a problem-free holiday staying here. The manager was helpful and friendly. The apartments clean, comfy, quiet. There was plenty for our kids to do (pool, sand-play, beach, playground) and we felt removed from the "real world" and very relaxed by the time we were done. Would not hesitate to stay there again!
Eddie & Julie really made us both feel extremely welcome and comfortable during our stay.
On our first day we both managed to cut ourselves at the beach, which Julie promptly assessed took care of, much to our relief!
We were fortunate to have the opportunity to upgrade to a balcony view room, from which we relished the sights and sounds of the main beach throughout our stay - as wonderful as the sounds of the crashing waves is, it was also great to be able to close a diving door when it was time to retire in the evening. The bedrooms were quiet and very comfortable.
We had a great stay and Trinity Beach is by far our favorite of the numerous beachfront communities in the area. Would recommend Beachfront Apartments to anyone wanting a peaceful and tranquil holiday right on the beach. Brilliant :)
We stayed for a week in a beautiful apartment at Marlin Cove and couldn't fault anything. We were lucky enough to be placed in an apartment overlooking the pool and the view was amazing. The staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms were all cleaned to a very high standard. The pool and gardens are incredibly beautiful and are a credit to the grounds staff, who must be kept very busy. The walk down to the beach and lovely little village of Trinity Beach takes just a few minutes and is a great place to hang out. We would recommend hiring a car if you wish to travel out from the area, which we did and found it a perfect place to return to at the end of the day to relax. We would highly recommend staying at Marlin Cove and will certainly encourage friends and family to stay when heading up that way.
Thanks for a great time!!
I have stayed there many times but the place has new owners (the male owner) was not very welcoming and just seem to be going through the motions. The bed cover smelt and needed a good wash, the crockery was not cleaned properly. The pool was not cleaned as often as it use to be.I was disappointed as the whole feel of the place has changed. It is still ok to stay there but don't expect much from the manager especially if you ask for another roll of toilet paper you won't get it if you take up the option of a cheaper rate for the room . We were there 9 days so it was not like we were only there a few days.
Helen, the manager, was fantastically helpful in terms of (1) providing info on Great Barrier Reef charters and other local information, (2) making a booking with a charter, (3) anticipating needs like beach towels and electrical plug adapter. I'd definitely go back there--Trinity Beach is a pretty setting, too.

The self-contained apartments were clean and had everything you need. The facillities within the resort were great. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance for those not wanting to cook or a convenience store down the road if you want to eat in.
The staff were amazing! So friendly and helpful. They really want you to enjoy your stay. We waited until we arrived to book all our tours and we are so pleased we did. Having a tourism desk at reception was very handy and the staff provided a lot of local knowledge and insight to help us make a decision on what tours we wanted to go on and through which company.
