“Definitely one of the best hotels in Darwin.”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

This is my 2nd stay at the Adina (Former Grand Medina) in the past 2 years, and I have to praise them for their impeccable service and clean rooms. Located just 5mins away from the heart of Darwin, facing the wave pool and waterfront.. this hotel is ideally located in a great district.

Well, if you're lucky and got a room facing the waterfront, you will love sitting at the balcony sipping a glass of wine watching the sunset/sun rise. Unfortunately, this time i got a room facing the roads but overall i really enjoyed my stay with them. Hope to return next year again! Thank you Adina!

Room Tip: Ask them for rooms facing the wave pool/waterfront for a better scenery. 1 bedroom apartments come...

I have only stayed here once. It was a decent room but to get out it was a huge walk through many passage ways to get to the elevator. Only stayed one night so it wasn't bad. The pool was pretty good. Friendly service

we have stayed at these apartments several years ago,and once again we weren't dissapointed.the staff were all very friendly ,the rooms were clean and very spacious,with great views. over the water front,stokes wharf.we did have a bedside light not working and the mixer tap over the sink was in danger of falling off,and our friends in another apartment had several lights not working ,which they had fixed the next morning.that problem could be solved by haveing the cleaning staff report these types of problems each day?

Room Tip: just make sure to get a room with a view

Stay was great, as we live out rural Darwin, was nice to stay In town. However, paid a mint for a one bedroom app for valentines and was overlooking the rest of the building, paid for a view and got a lesson in architecture, no balcony, no view, no ice, no cold water, and the king was a queen and a single slapped together, also paid 33 bucks in parking fee's, we were there for 18 hrs, so in all, our stay was very disappointing, I don't mind paying large but expect some reflection, oh and this is in non-peek period. Service was very warm and friendly, but this hotel is letting them down.... Russ, Gunn.

This is the second time we've stayed both times in a one bedroom water view apartment once when it's was the medina could not fault that stay, now it's the Adina and the cleanliness was not up to standard at all the floors and benches in the kitchen & bathroom were filthy, they had no parking cards so we had to pay expensive parking rates for the car park and then get reimbursed by the hotel, just an annoying inconvenience. The apartment are a good size though.

For a hotel so well located and seemingly contemporary design it is let down by average service, poor food choice and air conditioning that can't be changed sufficiently.

My advice is to get a two room apartment overlooking the wave pool.

I stayed here for 11 nights in a one bedroom apartment overlooking the wave pool and harbour waterfront/wharf area in early January 2013. The room was very comfortable and had a full size fridge, kitchenette, good sized shower (not miserly on water) and a very comfortable bed. It was pretty tough walking out through the lobby to walk around all of the adjacent restaurants, Bars, ice cream parlour, wave pool and lagoon area - but I managed! I'm not a young man but I loved the wave pool and this is an excellent location for those with kids. It's a short stroll along the sky bridge up to the mall and CBD area, which makes this a really great place to stay and enjoy everything Darwin has to offer. Highly recommended and I'm looking forward to getting back there as soon as I can. House keeping can be problematic anywhere you stay, but this is a busy place and they work hard to meet everyone's demands. I had no problems with my room during my stay, but I did elsewhere in Darwin. You won't be disappointed with this location.

Room Tip: The rooms have good air conditioning and the room service is prompt and friendly.
