These apartments are in a good location, within easy walking distance to popular bars and restaurants even a BWS and Woolworths, as well... The apartments are quite spacious, two bedroom, two bathroom, kitchen, laundry, but they are a little dated and tired looking and the amenities, like the pool and BBQ area seem a bit run down and are in...

The Marrakai apartments are in a central location with an easy walk to Cullen Bay, Mindil Beach and central Darwin. Big apartments with balconies to enjoy a glass of wine watching the sunset. They are getting a bit dated but the facilities are good and they are much bigger than most of the surrounding apartment blocks. Certainly worth considering if... More

We recently stayed there for 2 nights on our return home, pleased with the room as we had number 23 although room 22 was a little different set out and didn't have some of the things we had. Beautiful and clean very spacious but the noise at night was something else. All night the noise from the housing apartment over... More

This was our second trip to Darwin but first time at this Motel, nothing against this place as the rooms were lovely with some great views but what let this place down was the housing commission homes across the road which housed a few troubled Aboriginals who on every night we stayed there come out on the streets and scream...

These apartments are quite good for their age, the owners maybe just need to authorize a bit of tender loving care in the form of painting and updating some things, but all in all well situated close to most things

Stayed here for nearly two weeks and left satisfied. Great location. Building and some rooms need a little bit of work. Suggest others try and get a room above the 8th floor. The rooms seem to get better the higher you are.

This building is fairly dated and all the units are privately owned, so what you get depends on who owns the unit (ie good or bad landlord). We had unit 44 which was in average condition. I'd Suggest browsing the reviews and booking an apartment that someone else has reviewed as recently renovated. I'd also go floor 10 or above... More

Over a 5 year period I have never been so shocked at a hotel. Here is a short list of all of the things I haven't liked: - Airconditioner caught on fire - Airconditioner was broken and took weeks to get fixed - Apartments full of bugs including ants, silverfish, and bed mites - stains all over the sheets -...

Had a spontaneous trip to Darwin recently to surprise our son and his wife flying back into Aus after a world cycling trip. Personally checked out the Marrakai after finding it online and were greeted by Melanie and Eugene who kindly allowed us to inspect a unit. We were impressed with the spaciousness and cleanliness so booked and moved in... More

My partner and I stayed at the Marrakai for 5 nights and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay. We arrived quite late at night but with Marrakai's great after hours service we were able to easily get into our room with no hassles and no waiting :) Our entire stay was truly amazing, everything we needed was there.
