We stayed here for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. Although there were just the 2 of us we ended up in a family cabin due to availability. We brought some groceries as we knew there were barbeques available. That said, we also ate at the restaurant and the food was great. We found the staff to be friendly... More

Stayed here for a weekend in the NT dry season. It's a wonderful family friendly location and friendly staff. The units are kept very clean however they are in need of a revamp. The camping area is also very popular. Just don't expect a quality resort and you won't be disappointed as the location is beautiful. We'll be returning.

I came is for a camp with a large group, it's been the most amazing experience. The staff are so very friendly (this is an understatement) Situated on the beach about 1 1/2 - 2 hours drive from Darwin, it's the perfect location for fishing. It has two pools as visitor mustn't swim in the ocean because Crocs are in... More

PRBA Business function, amazing, served 100 of us without missing a beat, tender steaks, great veg and yummy potato bake. Can't wait to drop in and have a counter meal. The view is pretty good too. We arrived by sea, but a nice drive from Darwin for something different.

Great food, friendly staff, cold beer, good wine and comfortable accommodation. We also took the hire boat out for the day to add to our positive thoughts... More

We just got back from Crab Claw and have to say it was fabulous- it's like paradise and only 2 hours from Darwin. We loved the beach front cabin, simple but had everything you needed. Staff was friendly and laid back. Restaurant was decent although if you are going for a few nights you may want to bring some stuff... More

Visited friends for two weeks in the camping area. They had been there for two months. The amenities are in sufficient for the amount of sites,they need a major over haul and redesign. The laundry is none existent as one filthy washing machine and the area i would not put my dog in it. To say the management manage would... More

Returning back to Crabclaw Island Resort was better than last time!! Kids had a ball in the pool and fishing off the beach. Food was bloody excellent like last time... And the staff and manager were family friendly and very hospitable. It was good to actually see the same staff there as last time we visited. Rooms were of a... More

An amazing place for a beach wedding. The rooms are very rustic and the rest of the place matches this. Must say the food is excellent and the service may be a little slow at times but you have to be on NT time here. The views are some of the best available but the midgies are very friendly.

We loved the food at the restaurant and the fact that all we needed to bring was our boat and our clothes!! They provide everything - ice, bait, hire boats, comfortable accommodation, swimming pools for the kids, good boat ramp and a beautiful location. It's the most relaxing holiday in darwin we have had so far. I also like the... More
