            This apartment building is one of Darwin's oldest but is reasonable maintained. The building is opposite a large block of public housing and is rather noisy and surrounded by some social dysfunction. Security to building is good. We stayed in the summer and the smell of the communal garbage chute on each floor was awful! This needs to be cleaned daily in the hot weather. Carol from Australia

            Renovations needed”
            Whilst I was happy with the facilities and setup in the two bedroom apartment in which our small group stayed, the apartment itself was in need of some maintenance (eg cracked powerpoints, and walls and ceilings a tad shabby- and the outdoor portable clothes drying rack was a rusted mess...) We were there for four nights and the apartment wasnt serviced during that time but it would have been nice to have one service in the four days. The location is great, close to the enjoyable Cafe 21 and nice walks on the Esplanade. Also a 24 Hungry Jacks less than 200 metres away. The sunsets from the balcony of our 9th floor apartment were stunning. Would stay there again if the price was right.

            Great value for an apartment, excellent views. Apartments are a little dated however, a very 80s feel to them especially the kitchen, but they are still very nice to stay in and very good value for money.

            The floor in the kitchen was so sticky. We had to mop and the water was black just after mopping the kitchen. There was chewed chewing gum found stuck right next to my sons bed and there was an issue with Ants. We told reception the following morning and the lady was so rude and didn't seem to care. We asked for the manger to contact us ASAP on Friday......we are still waiting. Definitely was not worth the money for two nights.

            It was rated as 4 star and with a high price tag, my family expected way more. Hair in bathroom sink, toilet seat broken, cob webs, cock roaches aplenty! I've used Agoda many times and been very happy with the accommodation - but very disappointed this time! Tony Morrison

            The view and proximity to the city and easy acess to motorway
            The Marrakai apartments were spacious and had lovely views over the city and sea. It was quiet and there was secure underground parking. Unfortunately the apartment could do with some maintenance and a good clean. When we arrived there were lots of hairballs and chips escaping from under the tv cabinet and the oven had a tray of stinky mouldy fat in it. There was no light and a severe leak in the laundry which the receptionist put down to problems with the air conditioner, the light was fixed but we had to contend with puddles of water for the week we were there. The most disappointing issue we had was the lack of Wifi. We chose that apartment because it said there was WIfi and when we got there there was no wifi due, she said, to a new provider.Unfortunately they were not prepared to make any effort to find a way round this problem. It is definitely not 4 stars.

            We stayed in apartment 4. It was very noisy especially at night with neighboring housing commission units. The apartment was dated with chipped bath tub and overhead fans do need upgrading. Airconditioning worked well. Moved a chair to find not clean underneath. The staff were very good and nothing was too much for assistance.

            View, location & size of apartment
            We stayed on the 9th floor and the view over Darwin was fantastic!! The apartment is a little 'dated', but comfy enough. The air conditioner struggled a bit with the heat and condensation dripping started just as we left in the morning, but it was quite a hot 'wet season' morning. The pool looked lovely, but was a bit warm and two of my family had really red sore eyes that lasted until the next day after swimming. The apartment itself was very spacious and was furnished simple, but with everything you need. The check-in procedure needs a bit of improvement, as their reception hours are only to midday on the weekends which is before the available check-in time, so you then need to put a password into the safe box out the front to retrieve your keys. This is not a drama, although I only found out my pin # because I rang up to make an enquiry during the day. Another booking turned up while I was trying to access the safe box and had not been told any information about how to check-in, so it was lucky that I was still there. It turned out that we were there at the safe box for quite some time, as the battery had run out and the pin pad was not working. After being on the phone with them for a while, a gentleman came down to let us in. He was lovely and very helpful. Other than the couple of things that need improvement, overall it was a pleasant enough stay and I would stay there again in the future.
