              The friendly staff and welcome feeling extended to our family epitomized the experience we thoroughly enjoyed at the blue marlin hotel. A family experience that we would recommend and do again.

              Cannot fault the stay one bit. The rooms were clean and spacious with a great ocean view. The food was very good and the staff were friendly. Will definitely return.

              We had a lovely stay. We had a newly renovated family room which had a stunning view of the lagoon and beach. There is so much to do for kids! We unfortunately only stayed 1 night so couldn't try everything out! The breakfast was first class! Staff put on an amazing spread of everything you could want at breakfast! The staff in general were very friendly!! There are renovations in progress at the hotel, but this didn't worry us, but we did stay on the weekend so there weren't many workers around.We will go here again.
