I was in a group of people booking 2 apartments in Darwins MARRAKAI apartments. I can only reiterate what other reviewers have said. "Luxury" should definitely be taken out of description. We booked based on the website photos which were very impressive. We arrived to find sliding doors to the balcony that were extremely difficult to open, outdated and dirty... More

These are certainly not luxury apartments. My review is best summarized under Pros and Cons. Pros - excellent location within walking distance of the CBD and close to public transport. Really well designed apartments. Ours was two bedrooms, fully equipped kitchen and laundry, excellent view from the wrap around verandah and very quiet. Cons - very tired rooms that urgently...

Arrives 6:30pm, to find that the reception is only manned 8 to 4, remembering it is the high season right now, so there is a box which is supposed to contain a phone (it doesn't ) inside the box is a phone number which you ring, this number goes to a Queensland call centre, which took 15 minutes before I...

I never reply to people reviews they are allowed there point of view. You where an angry little man before arriving. Our office hours are clearly on the website, these are self contained apartments. At $220 a night in the middle of July is a fair price. You can pay more and have a 24/7 reception if you wish, its... More

Middle of dry season with two bedroom apartment availability for 10 days with 4 days notice - we were so glad to get a room here. It is very comfortable, central to all of our needs in Darwin and so competitive on price. Don't expect your dishes washed and linen changed daily - if you are happy to live in... More

We stayed at Marrakai apartments for 9 days and the room was clean and had everything you could need. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly! It is just a short walk to the CBD. As we arrived and left in the middle of the night I had rung to work out how to get access to our apartment and... More

I think this apartment block should remove Luxury from its title. The apartment we stayed in had not been renovated since it was built - 1980's. The kitchen cupboards were falling apart. I think the biggest problem I had was that the photos on the internet were of a renovated apartment, so that was not what I expected. This apartment... More

Apartment 50 was gorgeous everything we needed as if we had all the cresture comforts from home with us, and when they say fully equipped, they can stand by the statement. Uninterrupted views of darwin harbour unbelievable sunset views, we couldnt believe the bbq pool area. Massive tropical... More

Even though I informed the Marrakai of my approximate arrival time, I found the front desk/counter unoccupied (metal grill shutter down) and had to ring a number that was displayed on a piece of paper attached to the grill and then the manager came to see me so I could check in. The Manager said he'd come with me up... More

Nothing like the pictures, lots of stains everywhere, holes in the couches, uncomfortable bed. Although spacious, it appears that no maintenance is done on the rooms, toilet broken, carpet coming up. Front counter service poor. Definitely would not stay here again.
