GREAT CAMPSITE

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Indra Couples - 12/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We had a great stay at the campsite. Would def recommend getting at least a medium size spot if you have a caravan or camper trailer. I though small might work, but I wouldn't go lower than medium. Facilities are clean and the pools are great! Staff can help you out with things to do and know what they're talking about. Would def come back

Really enjoyed the accommodation, it was great. The only down fall was the restaurant - bit of poor service from some of the staff, and the fact that the pubs happy hour didn't open till later, seeing as the footy finals were on and heaps of people came to watch.

Anonymous Families - 03/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I would appreciate a bit more options for "self-catering". Very limited food selection in the store. Fresh fruit and vegies or salads, wraps, etc. to buy and eat at room or to take for hikes etc. and more light, healthy snack options in the day time restaurant would be welcome. Yellow Water tour was very good and informative. Some shorter, more affordable first nation tours about lifestyle, bush tucker, etc. would be a good addition. The resort lay out and the room were very nice. Thank you.

Camping at Cooinda gives guests access to two amenity blocks, swimming pools and our restaurants onsite. We feel the price point is appropriate for our location and the amenities provided.

We are fortunate enough to be on a road trip from Brisbane to Perth via the NT. I wanted to introduce my partner to Kakadu National Park where the yellow waters cruise. In the past I’ve stayed at the crocodile hotel but this time we chose Carinda Lodge with a very good package of Glamping bed and breakfast on the cruise. I was very impressed with your accommodation and all the amenities. The staff were most helpful and the quality vegan meal we had at the restaurant a true surprise.

My only complaint is that the Ac was not very efficient. When the staff were made aware of my suspicions they changed my room. I believe the cleaning staff would have been aware of the problem and reported it prior to arrival.

The campgrounds and communal blocks were well cared for, delicious food at the restaurant, fantastic service all round from staff. Only downfall was other peoples kids up at 5am screaming and playing (which is totally fine, but rough at 5am when they kept waking our baby who made minimal noise the whole trip).

I booked and paid for 3 nights. I checked out 1 night early. I recognise the policy of the lodge is no refund if check out 1 night early. From a goodwill perspective I would have thought in the current climate I might have got a refund given I am trying to support tourism in NT.

Ann W. Friends - 20/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Our accommodation was good. And location for excursions was excellent. However the price of a glass of wine at $22 for a mediocre red was excessive and when this was commented on to staff, the reply that we were in an isolated area was not suitable. Also a lack of even basic cutlery or plates in the room was disappointing. Also the lack of a comfortable chair to sit in on the verandah or in the room left no option but to sit on the bed.

Great camping experience

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Kristie Families - 06/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

it was the first camping trip with our baby and toddler and it was made so smooth by the great facilities, location and hospitality of the staff. The on-site shop and petrol station also made life easy plus the clean and central bathroom block. My only gripe would be the price and quality of the restaurant food. My steak was definitely frozen and the schnitzel was clearly not house-made. Wouldn’t matter if they didn’t come at a hefty price tag (+$40 for the steak).

Clean, modern, new facilities. Appropriate for NT experience. Not too fancy but comfortable enough. The outstanding food has to be mentioned. We have travelled all over the world. Children’s meals are always the lowest quality. The children’s fish at your lodge was healthy and contained vegetables! Congratulations to the chef!

Joyas Couples - 03/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

What a pleasant surprise when we arrived and saw how lovely Cooinda Lodge was. All the staff were so friendly and helpful. They made us feel very welcome. Our unit was nicely set up with a large comfortable bed. We received complimentary welcome drinks and the Accor discount on all meals whilst there, with the meals being delicious and of ample size. The lodge is close to the Warradjan Aboriginal Cultural Centre and Yellow Water. Altogether a delightful stay. I made our booking through a travel website as I did not realise that Cooinda Lodge was an Accor hotel until after I had booked.
