We have been staying here regularly for the past 12-15years and this is the best we've seen it. Yes the rooms are pretty old but they are slowly doing them up. Our retreat cabin was lovely, very clean with nice linen. The staff are excellent with nothing being too much trouble. We spent last Christmas here and the difference is... More

Recently stayed at Crabclaw with my two boys. Loved it. Rooms are nothing fancy but what really stood out was the staff. They were relaxed, helpful and prepared to go the extra mile to make our stay awesome. We hired a boat and they patiently took us through it and had helpful hints on best places to fish. Will definitely... More

Loved Crab Claw Island, the mangers & staff made us feel very welcome. Meals are well priced & taste wonderful. We camped in a tent but next time we will get a room, I will update when I have that experience. Highly recommend Crab Claw Island, can't wait to go back.

After a magnificent day playing around with airboats, helicopters and floatplanes, the team from Outback Floatplane Adventures dropped us off at Crab Claw just in time to catch the iconic sunset by air. This place is not about 5-star luxury and in-house movies so you can stop reading now if that's what you're looking for. However if you're looking for... More

I had the opportunity to be guided here for 2 days in September by Ben from Vision Sports Fishing tours. This is a little piece of paradise. Stunning sunrises and sunsets The location is tranquil with some amazing views. The cabins and accommodation is adequate for this type of location, but well maintained. The amenities are basic but had most... More

You aren't here to watch TV so don't expect a tv in your room this is a place to enjoy the locals, your family... More

We were told by a friend that because the place is above ground on stilts that we would have no worries with sandflies, rubbish we got eaten alive, even with stacks of repellent. There are new managers here who are trying to get this place in good order but there is much work to be done. The rooms are back... More

Value for money is terrible, bedding clean, rooms disgusting, for $200 a night. Will never go back again. I will advise you not to go! No TV not even a radio!Fans coated dust, staff were lazy, food was good, location is awesome.
