    Jabiru is remote, very little services but perfect for an Outback Experience especially in wet season. Bring strong fly repellant (deet 80+). Petrol station has an excellent stock of most everything, but bring fresh food items if you need them, esky recommended too to save on $ buying too much. Storms were epic, Croc Mercure worth the stay for air cond, pool and service. Sunrise by the lake beautiful as well.

    We really enjoyed the Yellow Water cruise at Cooinda it was well worth it. We seen water buffaloes, plenty of crocs and heaps of different birds. It was really interesting and our guide was very knowledgeable.

    The rock art was interesting along with the Aboriginal art on display at the hotel. The rivers are teeming with birds and crocs. The journey from Darwin was rather monotonous with little change in the scenery.

    Jabiru is a great base for exploring Kakadu.

    Jabiru is a great base for exploring Kakadu. I absolutely recommend doing the Yellow Waters sunset cruise one evening and if possible check out Cooinda and the excellent Cultural Centre while you're down that way, visit Ubirr on another evening and attend the free ranger-guided walks, drop in at Nourlangie Rock and check out the art galleries there, head up to Cahills Crossing if you have time - everything is very spread out but within an hour's drive of Jabiru. Jabiru itself has an excellent Foodtown supermarket which sells cooked food and coffees and a good petrol station too.

    it was nice to have a break at the crocodile hotel for a coffee or lunch break.Town has an IGA supermarket if you need to stock up. Also there is mobile reception. Other than that there is nothing to see or do, except for a cafe and art centre

    conveniently located for exploring Kakadu national park. rooms were a good size and beds were comfortable but the bathrooms need upgrading and the lighting was poor. staff were very nice, friendly and helpful. dining options were limited but it is a remote location.

    The Bush outlook of the glamping tents was sensational. We had a night of heavy rain and with the barking owls, dingoes, cicadas and other night creatures it was a magical atmosphere. Also the yellow water cruise at dawn was brilliant with buffalo, crocodiles and countless birdlife including the majestic Jabiru spotted. Finally the meals were surprisingly delicious and healthy - good work chef.

    We opted for this resort over staying at Jabiru and so pleased we made the choice. Quite a little oasis and a very comfortable place for our overnight stay. We had one of the cabins and ate at the restaurant and were very happy with both, particularly give kits where we were. Big call out to the team at the reception who were really helpful changing some bookings for us.

    The staff are doing a great job despite the fact that they are under staffed. It would be good if Mercure could spend some money on refurbishing the hotel. It is quite tired looking and it could be fantastic if some money was spent on it. I loved the pool area great to return to after sightseeing the special Kakadu region which is amazing.

    Cooinda Lodge is definitely the place to stay in Kakadu as there isn't much around. The staff was great, particularly Cody who gave us some pointers about birding, even for the Gouldian Finch in Darwin. The restaurant was great. The pool was very refreshing! The ceiling fan really helped to make you feel cooler.

    Well located in Jabiru, about 30 minutes drive to Ubirr and the same the other direction to Burrungkuy (Nourlangie). Air conditioning in the room worked well, and the large fridge/freezer was also very useful. restaurant in the evening by the pool was lovely for dinner.

    The property had everything you needed from food, petrol, tours, swimming pools. Lodge room was comfortable and clean. Staff were friendly and helpful. Yellow water tour right on doorstep, better location to stay than jabiru in my opinion for exploring Kakadu.

    A great location - convenient for both the local attractions (yellow water tours are excellent) and also for more distant sites e.g Ubirr and Nourlangie. Really friendly and enthusiastic staff. a very good hotel given how remote it is.

    Staff were amazing but the hotel needs a massive refresh, very old and rooms were not really clean. We had rubbish in ours from the previous customers and spiders webs. I think the price was too high for the rooms provided.
