Positives: The beds were comfy. Had good wifi connection. Food was decent. Close to the local supermarket Negatives: The place is old and run down, and in need of a revamp. The pool area lacks any kind of atmosphere, and is as plain as they come.

Kakadu has a world class reputation - or so I thought, as a result, I was left somewhat disappointed with this hotel which is far from world class standard. It is dated with few facilities besides a pool which is rather small for a hotel of this size. The rooms are comfortable enough for sleeping but don't expect any wow factor. Kakadu also left expectations somewhat wanting. Despite the various tourist agencies encouraging domestic tourism, the area just seemed as though it was only just waking up from covid. Many attractions were closed for seasonal or cultural reasons so maybe visitors later in the year will be better served. Also, don't expect too much from Jabiru - there is little there for tourists besides the barest of essentials.

Outdated hotel but good restaurant and service.
Great service from staff, especially Bebe in the Escarpment restaurant, and great food as well. The only let down is the room and resort itself. It is old, tired and not maintained. Furniture and bathrooms were old and outdated and cobwebs and insects in cornices. Bed was comfortable and AC was nice and cold. Pool needs to be cleaned more regularly with bird feathers on surface. It needs a good refurbishment overall to bring it up to standard for what you are paying per night.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Absolute Rip-off. Abandoned rooms and clients
Worse stay in very long time. The room was smelly, humid and dirty, plenty of spiderwebs, dust and dirt that had been there for ages, glass doors and mirror plenty of drops and dirt had not been wiped for years. Sliding doors did close leaving a gap of about 10cm and leaving all the heat, humidity and noise come in. Room was not serviced, I checked at reception and got serviced next day, guess what, they only stretched the bed sheets an gone, did not clean, did not get new toiletries or towels. Empty toiletries were at the same place we left them...etc. All together I would not recommend at all staying there, $300 per night is an absolute rip-off. Better look for alternatives. In saying that, the guy that attended us in reception (evening roster) was very nice and helpful)
