Great location, good facilities. Little disappointed in the "family room" not worth the $379.00 for a night.

Our stay at Cooinda was fabulous. The only problem we had was the receptionist we questioned when we first arrived told us Jabiru was a 30 minute drive. Later when checking on Google maps we found it was more like 45 mins. She also neglected to tell us, that plane flights pilots were to be met at the reception area at a specified desk. We were left with the impression we had to drive to Jabiru.

It could have been better.

Our stay in Cooinda Lodge could have been better. I think we just got unlucky that the lodge room that was allocated to us was just outside parking lot. The patio area is directly facing the parking lot and is next to useless as you cannot sit there else you will be eaten alive by the mosquitoes. I understand that the mosquitoes are a part of life around the area but the management could have done measures to at least reduce. At least the air-conditioning is working and there is hot water. The cleanliness of the room is okay, you can tell it hasn't been cleaned thoroughly but it is acceptable. There is no public WIFI that you can access within the common area i.e. reception, restaurant, which is pretty a basic necessity these days. Reception have no landline on offer only the free public pay phones. So basically if you got no mobile signal (which pretty much our case, note that we are on Tesltra) you will be basically off the grid. Food isn't that bad or expensive, but the limited menu. And there are no other restaurants or shop within 50km+ radius. There isn't much of anything in Jabiru either. So come prepared with snacks and drinks. For an Accor hotel, you would have expected a higher standard, but unfortunately our expectations are not met.

Extremely expensive and lodge overrated. Bathroom was not cleaned properly - hair and paper behind door. Not self contained as informed which forced us to eat out - more expense. Bed and room very comfortable and quiet.

Good experience give remote location. Food options were limited but great quality. Staff very friendly and coped well under pressure. Biggest gripe is the family room - it wasn’t clear that the third bed was a fold out. This was too short for my 14 year old teen who is only 5’4”. Bathroom floor was also dirty.

Beautifully maintained grounds, the accommodation is comfortable & clean - staying at the lodge was perfect. The Yellow River cruise was fabulous - thanks Travis. Don’t forget to take your mozzie repellent. We visited the Cultural Centre at Cooinda and spoke with two lovely young women who were informative and generous with their time and sharing of their culture and their basket making skills 😎👍

We were able to get 2 nights' stay at Cooinda on our recent travels and loved it. The rooms, bed and shower were great. The food was delicious and the staff were so helpful. Would highly recommend staying here if you are travelling through Kakadu.

Zoe Friends - Confirmed reviews ALL

We enjoyed our stay, this was our 7th trip to Cooinda. We generally camp, but stayed in a family room this time. The rooms are a bit disappointing given the price, the bathroom was not clean and we had cockroaches in our shower. No air con remote in our room to adjust temp overnight. Bed was comfy, but pillows were very thin and uncomfortable. The grounds are beautiful, pool area etc. but the room was the let down. We dined in Mimi's restaurant for dinner & breakfast which were both nice, but a bit pricey (however understand this given remote location)

from the moment we went to reception to check in, during our whole stay and when checking out, we received the best customer service that anybody could ask for...the entire team at Cooinda Lodge is absolutely fantastic!! The only bad thing about the place is that I did not have any telephone reception with Optus and would have been in a lot of trouble with paying for anything as I'd misplaced my bank card too, but I had some cash for incidentals! There is no Wi-Fi either

Miranda Solo - Confirmed reviews ALL

The room was quite comfortable, although it appears the walls are quite thin because I could hear a lot of noise from the people next door. I imagine during busy season that would have been annoying. The restaurant was great, the barramundi was expertly cooked and the chef is to be commended for the delicious food he prepared. My only disappointment was that I couldn’t get a half serve of the ribs - solo travellers shouldn’t be disadvantaged like that!

Fantastic location and the staff were great. Lodge room was large, clean and very comfortable. Yellow Waters tour conveniently starts at the lodge and is just amazing. Great guide and the scenery has to be seen to be believed. Great steak at the restaurant.

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

yoshief2017 TripAdvisor review

We stayed a total of two nights at Cooinda Lodge. We wanted to have experience of both the Outback Retreat and Deluxe rooms, so we stayed one night in each. Outback Retreat was very clean and very comfortable. We loved it. It has a nice natural style décor. Power points, fridge and electric kettle were very useful. Even though it was an Eco tent, there was Air-conditioning and a celling fan in the tent. Although Outback Retreat do not have an ensuite, we were very impressed with the share facility. We had to use a security code to access the facility, so we felt very safe. Also very clean and no bugs at all. Fancy basin and shower facilities were a nice surprise. I didn't expect that level of quality and cleanness. Common area between female and male section has a washing machine and dryer, also a drinking water tap. Only negative aspect was that the power generator makes noise and disturbed our sleep however it is understandable that they need it due to the remote location. Hope they can apply alternative solution in the near future. Deluxe Room is also very new, clean and comfortable. We appreciated that ensuite facility. Air-conditioning, celling fan, kettle, fridge are all working well. This area was very quiet. Restaurant provided nice food and drinks and reasonably priced and very tasty. All staff are friendly and very helpful. We noticed that this property operation is very sustainable. A separated recycle bin is located in the deluxe room. Coffee cups in the cafe are bio gradable and compostable. Drinking water stations are located in many places, so we can fill our water bottle without using single use plastic at all. We loved this place and highly recommended.
