    Karen, in the office was the most cheerful friendly intelligent person - always willing to help - and quickly. She is a great asset. We felt most welcome. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was hard to find a place for 2 adults and our 2 older grandchildren. Perfect. Thank you.

    there was nothing special about it, it was an ordinary holiday apartment and nothing luxurious about it

    Fabulous

    The woman at the front desk was terrific. Good for our elderly parents. Very comfortable. Loved the wrap around views and the veranda

    Parts of the rooms were a little worn esp the bathroom. Bed uncomfortable.

    We stayed for one night out of 14 and relocated to a much nicer hotel. The advertising on the net was misleading. The hotel was not clean. The room was not like the one on the web site. The view was of slums. The room was not clean. There were ants everywhere. The cooking implements were non existent. There wasn't even enough cutlery for three people. We were very disappointed. The receptionist was very unhappy when we left. She did not disguise her temper.

    View. Cooking facilities. Cutlery. Crockery. Bathrooms were old.

    Superb

    The location of Marrakai was excellent for us. Walking distance from the Mindil Beach markets, Botanic Gardens and everything in the city - plus it was a straight line to the Darwin Festival site which was very handy. Close to supermarkets and restaurants too. The pool was really lovely. The views were great, the apartment was really comfortable and we had a great time there.

    Glass cutting boards.

    These rooms are very spacious, two large bedrooms, ensuite to main, full bathroom and laundry, even a dishwasher! Perfect for a long or short stay. Walking distance to the city sites, bech and supermarket, very central or city visitors. The pool is gorgeous and we found it very quiet and safe. Free barbecue and underground free parking, would definitely choose to stay again, especially with a family

    The only thing would be the noisy backpackers and bars a street away, but you're in the middle of the city o it's to be expected, it stopped by midnight each night

    Very good

    Location was great

    I was extremely disapointed with the Air Cond which only worked in the main bedroom the lounge room had no A/C from day one and the second bedroom when turned on leaked. water on to the laundry floor. i could not control the tempreture in the main bedroom and from that i got sick and was unable to speak at my sons wedding properly. I run my own A/c company in brisbane and understand that it is hard to have the A/C working but we are not use to the weather in darwin and we suffered. I just think that the owners should know for the amount of money i paid it was disapointing.

    Great location, nice view/terrace. Nice spacious and luminous appartment.

    A bit cheap to cut the sponge in two.

    Good

    Easy walking distanc ein to Darwin centre. Very convenient for Avis car rental (next door). Nice view across the "city" to the sea - great sunsets. Comfortable beds, good kitchen and laundry facilities.

    To call these "luxury" suites is a bit over the top. They are functional and comfortable, but fairly basic and looking a bit dated - they would certainly need significant upgrading before they met my definition of luxury. Although the pool area is quite pleasant, having to access it through the underground car park rather spoils the effect.

    Very expensive and certainly NOT luxury. Building and fittings very old and in need of an update. We were expecting something a little more updated for the price that we paid. Tired paintwork, tiles, furniture. Very disappointing.
