We spent two nights at Cooinda Lodge and thoroughly enjoyed all the facilities. The restaurant has good food and a great vibe and the large resort pool is excellent. Highly recommend this resort.

Location was awesome,staff were friendly & the pool was beautiful and big! Pool temp was bath warm , which was disappointing after a long day Exploring out in the hot weather.

Great value for money. Air-conditioner was on pre our arrival. Very refreshing to walk into an air-conditioned room when it is 40plus degrees out on the fishing boat!

Perfect!”
We booked the superior room. It was spacious, very clean (I am OCD), very comfortable mattress and pillows. Things inside the room included bar fridge, coffee and tea maker, ironing table and iron. Had a fan and an aircond. Bathroom was very brightly lit. Love the shower gel and the shower door. So posh! Toilet lid was self closing (slowly) so good! The guy at the Barra bistro (I didn't get his name) also had a great customer service, such amazing people skills! He was there that night we had dinner and was there the morning after we came back from the Sunrise Yellow River Cruise greeted us with big smile! ** The following things are really NOT important and didn't bother us one bit but I thought I should put this for some people. Shower room itself may be a little small for the bigger people. Also you are still in a National Park, so bear in mind tiny ants that want some drinks out of your cups on the bench or sink in the bathroom or taste of your toothpaste!

Very nice hotel, all the facilities are modern and very clean, superb location for the yellow river tour. There are mosquito outside which is expected for living next to the river but there also many cane toads on the property to keep the insect number down. Circle of life just outside your room door.

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.

very convenient for Yellow Water cruise”
Little cabins have a section where the shower is that seems quite open to the room next to you so sound travels very easily to the next room, so if you are not getting up for the dawn cruise, your sleep may be disrupted anyway. The accomodation is very suitable if you are going on the dawn cruise or sunset cruise. Nice to have a separate pool from the camping crowd pool. Bistro food overpriced and not very good, ie dry barramudi for $27

Overnight stay with sunset/sunrise cruises”
Great place to stay and do the sunset/sunrise+breakfast cruises at a much reduced price. We stayed in a family room (4 adults) and saved more money. Much more bird activity on the sunrise cruise but both were excellent value. Highly recommended.

We had an exception stay at Cooinda once again. 2 nights is never enough but during our stay we were looked after well in all regards. The morning Yellow Waters tour is amazing and so too the other locations we visited. We will be back I am sure. Our guests all raved about how good it was.

Nice facilities inside the national park”
We were pleasantly surprised by the freshly renovated room and the onsite facilities this place has to offer: decent restaurant, a small convenient store, petrol station, bus stop to the nearby Yellow Water cruise. Prices are a tad expensive for what it is but considering the remote location it was acceptable.

Relaxing stay”
Like the environment there (relaxing) but the location is too far to go anywhere except if to take the yellow water cruise. Can't get a seat for the dinner and the burger meat (chicken ) we ordered is too hard to bite (over cooked). Overall okay to stay.
Reviewed September 02, 2017
Dear Lee, Thank you for reviewing your stay at Cooinda Lodge Kakadu. I am pleased that you enjoyed the relaxing natural environment. Cooinda Lodge is centrally located to most attractions in the incredible Kakadu National Park but due to the share size of the Park (20,000 km2) naturally it does take some time to access certain areas - waterfalls etc. The Lodge is a hub for people visiting Kakadu and the Restaurant can get very busy especially directly after the sunrise and sunset Yellow Water Cruises. Wait times are something we have identified as needing improvement and we have introduced a Fish & Chip van to be available during peak periods and will also introduce a coffee cart from next dry season. I am sorry for any inconvenience. We appreciate your sharing your concerns, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future. Kind Regards Cameron Simpson Front Office Manager

Overprice room for 4”
The only pros for choosing this place is it's proximity to Yellow Water Cruises. Otherwise the room is really too small to fit 4 adults. We paid $50 for an extra bed but got a bed that was not stable as the locking screws are broken. There is also no space in the room to fully setup this bed. Toilet facilities was old, doors could not lock properly. We were informed that we could use microwave oven in the camp kitchen. We were appalled by the dirty condition of the camp kitchen, the oven & all. It was so yucky.

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.

Had a wonderful and relaxed stay. Even though the lodge houses many people it is still quiet and really good with children (several pools and a playground). Only downside is when tourbuses arrive for lunch buffet.
