We booked this based on the website photo's. The room we were given was nothing like what was in the photo's. The room was dirty and the carpets and walls were stained. The furniture was old and very tired. The air conditioner struggled to work and was so noisy you could not sit outside on the balcony. The bloke who...

I've been in and out of Darwin since the 1980s and this place was Darwin's first luxury apartment option in the 1990s. However, nothings changed since then. Same furniture from the 1990s, but now mix-n-match and the apartment we stayed in hadn't been painted - well probably since the 1990s. They're a good size though. Two good size bedrooms -...

We checked in The Marrakai Apts at 2.30am, and had no problems locating our key in the keysafe which came with clear directions to our apartment. We were in Apt 35 on the 8th floor. The apartment, whilst a little dated ,was large, clean and comfortable. We travelled with 2 teenagers and the 2nd bathroom was a godsend! The wrap...

My family of four stayed here for Christmas, upon arrival we were absolutely disgusted at the state of the room, the room was nothing like the pictures displayed on their website, the furniture was outdated and stained the carpets were filthy,it appeared the room had not been cleaned for a long time. The aircon was filthy dirty with mould it...

I stayed here in June 2016 for 7 nights. Towards the end the housekeeper came in and changed the sheets and obviously took away the used ones along with one of my dresses. The woman in reception has no interest in anything anyone has to say including the customers. When I said that one of my dresses went missing after...

Our experience was great except disappointment of pool area being renovated. Manager Jason is a lovely bloke. Our room was perfect, except for maybe some cleaning above eye level (eg a/con vents). Great price considering the location. Ask for Unit 45 if you want to ensure a quality apartment. Definetely recommend

Overall, the interior is a little dated and could do with an upgrade. Service from Jason and the support staff was great and for the price it was all good considering the central location. Shame the pool was closed for maintenance but happy to recommend.

I was in a group of people booking 2 apartments in Darwins MARRAKAI apartments. I can only reiterate what other reviewers have said. "Luxury" should definitely be taken out of description. We booked based on the website photos which were very impressive. We arrived to find sliding doors to the balcony that were extremely difficult to open, outdated and dirty...

These are certainly not luxury apartments. My review is best summarized under Pros and Cons. Pros - excellent location within walking distance of the CBD and close to public transport. Really well designed apartments. Ours was two bedrooms, fully equipped kitchen and laundry, excellent view from the wrap around verandah and very quiet. Cons - very tired rooms that urgently...

Arrives 6:30pm, to find that the reception is only manned 8 to 4, remembering it is the high season right now, so there is a box which is supposed to contain a phone (it doesn't ) inside the box is a phone number which you ring, this number goes to a Queensland call centre, which took 15 minutes before I...

I never reply to people reviews they are allowed there point of view. You where an angry little man before arriving. Our office hours are clearly on the website, these are self contained apartments. At $220 a night in the middle of July is a fair price. You can pay more and have a 24/7 reception if you wish, its...
