It's tropical just what you expect from Darwin! It's close to the WW11 tunnels, the CBD and the Wharf with various eateries just a short walk away. If you had children they would love the wave pool. Great place to stay if you're after the elegant Darwin experience!

The Vibe Hotel in Darwin is superbly located - the centre piece of the waterfront precinct and surrounded by waterfront restaurants and delightful parklands. The room was good with a large bathroom and a wonderful bed. Staff were helpful and willing to do all they could to make our stay enjoyable. Parking on the top level was terrific - under... More

As others have said the location is excellent and convenient, lot of good restaurants and the wave pool etc. within a very short walking distance. Rooms were a bit worn and small, breakfast was ok (albeit expensive). Front desk staff were helpful and friendly. In July all hotels in Darwin are way overpriced and Vibe was no exception. Probably the... More

This is a good location, away from the noisy centre of Darwin but close to the waterfront restaurants. I had a comfy bed but I found the air con took a while to respond to any changes I made. It was a long walk to the pool, it was down to ground floor via the lift, out the door and... More

Good location, big bed and clean room. Room service food was average and TV issues were a bit of a headache, unable to watch movies, and girl on front desk wasn't the best. 100MB wifi. Otherwise pretty happy with the stay

Stayed here twice, several nights each time, and found it entirely satisfactory. Rooms are clean, modern, spacious, bed was fine, all amenities provided and working well. Front desk staff are helpful and friendly; lobby is cool and relaxing. Did not eat in the popular dining area but had two breakfasts in Curve, the cafe, with pleasant outdoor seating -- pricey...

Stayed at this awesome Hotel a couple of months ago, they offer exemplary service, I was very impressed with the staff. The wave pool across from the resort was amazing for kids, the restaurants below were serviced by great staff and offered really good menus. Enjoyed the fact that there was really trendy shops close by and then you had... More

We are staying at the Vibe and find it is in an excellent area for a stay. Close to city area but in the heart of the relaxed Waterfront. Everything is fine but our room is a bit noisy at night. Car park access noise is one source and we feel the external elevator to the Walkway is also a... More

Nice rooms with Foxtel for the kids and also water park just behind the hotel. (unfortunately we didn't get to the water , not enough time) Very close to the city centre just 10 minutes walk. Plenty of parking under the building and free parking on the street on the weekends.

If you don't want to stay in the CBD, this is a great spot right near the waterfront making it easily accessible to Stokes Wharf by foot. Our room was ok, comfortable. Only complaint is wifi. They claim you get 100MB free per 24 hours but it only seemed to last a few minutes. I would expect free unlimited wifi... More
