We stayed 2 nights at Crab Claw Island had a little trouble getting in with the wet weather however Wayne was a champion and went above and beyond by making sure we made it Breakfast was provided and we ate at the restaurant for lunch and dinner The meals were exceptional the Chef does a great job with plenty of variety The wildlife on the island is fabulous the views exceptional and the staff were all friendly and full of knowledge Will definitely visit again next time we are in Darwin

We normally go to Crab claw in the dry season and camp though wanted to go in the wet season so stayed in semi waterfront rooms with 2 other families. Yes they are basic but that is all you need as long as they are clean and they were. Thank you to John and staff again for an amazing getaway. Food was amazing as usual, staff are friendly and accommodating. Only thing was my 8yr old didn't get to see Pinky the wallaby but we will be back soon.. Thanks again... Belinda Riordan

Lovely staff (including wallabies), good accommodation and great food: Grilled local prawn salad in a crispy taco basket were delicious We are not fishos, but looked like they enjoyed themselves too. Recommend 4WD or boat to get there - or perhaps helicopter. As Darwin locals we will go again.

We (five friends) rented two cabins for a weekend away. The good things: - great location, ocean views, wildlife (peacocks & wallabies) - loved the restaurant area, open & breezy - friendly staff. We had an issue with one meal and not only did the chef offer to replace it, he gifted us a bottle of bubbles to compensate - two swimming pools, so you can follow the shade - cute, elevated cabins with nice verandas and shady trees Things to consider: - last 12km in is unsealed (but fine for 2WD) - cabins have kettles and bar fridges, but not other cooking facilities. Also no crockery, cutlery or glasses (although apparently you can borrow these from the bar). - there’s not a lot to do if you’re not a fisher, so you need to embrace the relaxed vibe - the air con in my cabin was effective, but very loud and shook the walls a little Overall, we enjoyed our weekend.

I can't comment on anything else aside from the fact that it's a lovely setting. However, the beers were warm. I did ask whether they had anything colder, but basically a shrug and that's all there is was the response. Care factor seemed pretty much zero.

Response from John Roodenrys, Other at Crab Claw Island Resort
Responded 26 Oct 2020
Hi Dodgey, thank you for leaving feed back. This is not how we want to operate. It is essential that one can purchase a cold beer in the tropics and that if the beer that one has purchased is not at the required temperature then proper steps are taken to replace the beer with a cold one and that restitution is made. I shall be talking to the team. Next time your out this way swing by and I'll buy you a cold one, in the mean time please accept my apologies.
