Pleasently surprised ”

Considering the overall option for Kakadu accommodation (nothing bling)- we were pleasantly surprised with this lodge. We booked it as it had the overall best reviews for the park and I can see why. It was clean, cool (air con worked well), friendly staff, great access to the boat tour (3 min walk) and the food at the bistro was fantastic.

Great location in Kakadu.”

The highlight was the yellow river cruise which we booked through Cooinda, whihc we did at sunset. It was stunningly beautiful and we pulsar believe how much wildlife we saw and how fabulous the staff were. The hotel is 5 minutes away from the boat ramp. We came back after dusk and had a good meal and a swim in one of the two pools.

Surpassed my expectations. The room was a cool retreat from the heat of the day, yet integrated with the tropical garden outside. Very convenient for the unmissable Yellow Water cruise. And the straightforward outdoor restaurant gave another experience of Kakadu - don't miss the chance to sample high-quality crocodile, kangaroo and water buffalo.

First time in Kakadu”

Kakadu Lodge, Cooinda is set in beautiful grounds with a large oasis type swimming pool. It is ideally located for the tours but half an hour away from Jabiru where the airport is situated for the scenic flights. Amazing wildlife on the property: birds, snakes, frogs and even a dingo! Food is variable, service is consistently helpful.

The location is superb with good access to many of the attractions in the area. The pool is large and very refreshing. Food quality is good, with reasonable variety and quite fresh.

They really need to spend some money refurbishing the rooms. They are beginning to look quite worn and the mattress was very uncomfortable. If these issues are addressed, I'd highly recommend Cooinda Lodge. As it stands, I'd recommend looking for another option.

COOINDA LODGE”

Location is excellent for being close to the main sights. Yellow water cruises fabulous. Did a day trip to Jim Jim and Twin falls great. Great pools.

We stayed 3 nights at the Lodge and had a great time. My 13 year old daughter wasn't too excited about Kakadu but loved the Yellow water cruise and the day trip to Jim Jim falls. The rooms were basic for what you paid, but considering where you were I expected that and it was just part of the experience. The two pools are great. One large, which is fantastic for the children and the smaller one which was never busy and provided shade. Food was expensive but once again you have to expect that be so remote. Lovely staff and all round great experience, especially close to some of the main sights which was handy.

Excellent family accommodation”

The access to Yellow Waters in particular and Kakadu National Park in general; the seating arrangements and tables outside the rooms; the swimming pools and children's play areas

Correcting my booking after I had double booked after my daughter's flight bookings (for six people) took a long time, but I did receive a refund for all but one night in one room. I was grateful for the refund, but a few hundred dollars were wasted on the unused room. There seemed to be a continual problem with the printers in Reception which meant that no tickets were printed for the Yellow Waters Cruises on the two occasions on which I booked. Despite the assurance of the Reception staff that this would not matter, I was subjected to an intense interrogation by the first tourist guide who felt that I might have been "tricking" her company although my name was on her list with a booking for eight people, all of whom were with me. I found this degrading, but we were allowed on as fortunately I had the small printed receipt from the EFTPOS machine on me. She proved to be a good tourist guide if a deeply suspicious one! The first time the printers were not "working" and the second time, they had run out of ink. However, the second tourist guide let us on without demur once I showed my little receipt. Otherwise, the staff were very helpful, efficient and considerate, particularly those serving meals under a great deal of pressure.
