Thanks for your review

Really enjoyed our stay here. Super close to town, so walking to tourist shopping or grocery shopping is only minutes away. Great views over the Water Front to Iririki Island. Self contained accommodation with separate bedrooms was great and had everything required to look after yourself if that's what you want. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Good location

These apartments were in a central location however also very close to the road making them reasonabley loud even with the doors closed. Apartments were suitable for all your cooking needs and well priced - for a 3 star option. Recommendation is to ask for a unit on the second floor to assist with noise and increase your security if you want to leave your screen door open!

Weekend Break Away

Pros: Location and value for money
Location: Close to town, restaurants, tour operators and supermarket
First time stay at Mariner Apartments and we were extremely happy with our decision. The rooms were fantastic for the price, clean and comfortable. The staff were excellent and extremely helpful.

In desperate need of proper property maintenance

Pros: The staff (reception and security) were both polite and friendly.
Cons: The room we were given needs a deep clean, repaint, new kitchen and bathroom cabinetry. New linen and towels would be a worthwhile investment
Location: It's at the quiet end of the main street - but it's a small town so walking for food/entertainment was easy enough.
I'm sure the staff are doing their best to keep the place running, but we were extremely disheartened at the state of the room we were given, and the pool facility. Without being harsh- the room we had must have belonged to a long-term resident smoker (based on the smell). There was paint peeling off the wall under the TV, everything was dirty - kitchen, bathroom, living area, floors, ceiling fan, doors... The bathroom was very grimy and all of the cabinetry was damaged, ill-fitting or simply dirty. The towels and linen were stained and damaged. The dish-washing liquid was in a empty water bottle with a hole poked in the top. The wooden railing around the pool has been recently repainted, but significant wood-rot is evident.
