This hotel would probably be lovely for visiting tourists and holiday makers, however for business services it was sorely lacking. Poor customer service, long waits for the 24hour room service and inadequate wifi and transport offerings. Otherwise, rooms where lovely and other facilities fine.

Comfortable stay at a great location. Friendly and helpful staff. Good choice of places for eating. The beach activities and the wave lagoon are very good for a family holiday. The access to Darwin is a bonus

Do not hesitate to book yourself to this hotel, because it in not in the city centre. It takes only 10 minutes walk, but holtel is wery well situated by the sea, and with peaceful and beautiful surroundings. Also very good for swimming. Staff is exellent and helpful. Also had a good dinner at hotel's restaurant, also with good service.... More

Disappointing accommodation - more attention needs to be given to overall cleanliness and service. Card entry to hotel worked intermittently. The pool was not clean and towels often not there. Quality of food in the breakfast buffet was poor.

I took a trip to Darwin for the V8 Supercars and thought it would be good to stay at the Darwin Waterfront. The Vibe is a trendy place to stay, located in the growing waterfront with access to many restaurants and the Darwin Convention Centre. The room we stayed at was clean and the staff were friendly and keen to... More

Really impressed with how clean, spacious and comfortable our stay was here. My wife loved it and is planning a trip again next year with her sister's family to come along too. It was super hot when we visited Darwin, our first time, but we never felt too hot and and loved the location (near the wave pool and a... More

Amend your website to reflect the actually bedding provided - twin singles pushed together rather than king bed. Greater communication amongst staff to ensure a smoother check-in. Provide free shuttle to airport.

Dear Natalie R, Thank you for your review. Our beds are king size zippers that are used by the majority of hotels. They are joined together with a cover over the join so that you do not feel it.

Clean, well appointed rooms, great location let down by lack of attention to client service. Wrong room-type assigned, next day room still not serviced by 3pm. Only one maid for whole floor. She was very obliging when my elderly mother politely requested our room be made-up.

Vibe Darwin is linked with Adobe apartments. Both are right on the waterfront and a short walk from the Convention Centre. Staff are very friendly. Rooms are ok for a 3 star hotel. The pool is more than the plunge pool that the hotel claims - its is at least 10 metres long. Best is the hotel is right on... More

The apartment was reasonable. It was a little larger than a 'standard' hotel room. The bed was comfy and a couple of different types of pillows were provided which was appreciated. It would seem all rooms have 'views' but ours was an a particular location on level 2 (above the pool) where most of the view was obscured by plants.... More
