Not quite up to standard advertised

Very nice set up, staff friendly and helpful and enjoyed very much overall.

For up-market place food OK for us but not up to what is advertised. But just new F & B manager said he was working on it.

A nice rest after a safari

A nice lodge in a nice location with comfortable rooms. Maybe sometimes too quiet. Colette was extremely friendly, as well as all the staff. I would suggest, as I have already done in the hotel feedback, that service during dinner is too slow. Sometimes dinner could last 2 hours!!!

The picnic to Shell island was spectacular as well as the tour to Paradise Island that we booked. We really enjoyed them.
If I could go back in time, maybe I would have booked just 3 nights here and 2 in Indigo Bay to have a look at Bazaruto Island.

Outstanding service at Marlin Lodge

I spent 5 nights here with my girfriend in August.

In summary the stay at Marlin Lodge and overall experience was pretty near to perfect.

The Lodge is beautifully located, the rooms are quite secluded and you get a nice feeling of personal space.

Dining was also very good, which good variety and excellent service.

Marlin Lodge review

A luxurious location. Did everything the website promised, even flowers on the bed and stories in scrolls.

A relaxing, paradise beach location, everything we were looking for. I really loved our own private deck chairs, shade and beach.

They will do anything to help you out and the staff are really friendly. A great chill out place

Marlin Lodge

The location is lovely and the cabanas very nice, but the overall experience was bland.

There was not much interaction with management, except for Grant (Chef) and Micheline (PR). As a result the resort lacked soul.

Expert Africa comments

One half of this couple returned to Marlin in September 2009, for 8 nights or her own. She sent us a very brief feedback comment after that – and this is the 'second report' that is referred to above. We’d take a second visit, within the same year, as a vote of confidence in Marlin Lodge

Marlin Lodge review

What can we say about this beautiful place?? We had such a lovely stay - from the minute we arrived at the airport and were taken to the Marlin Lounge we knew we were in for a treat!!

The island is beautiful and the lodge is fantastic - all of the staff were more than helpful and couldnt have been more attentive!!

the activities here are brilliant and the choice we were offered was great!! the food was 5* and the kitchen staff were so flexible!! We couldnt fault this lodge and we had a perfect 5 nights - the only problem was that we had to leave!!!!!
