Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

New York City, New York8 contributions9 helpful votes
The room was quite comfortable but strangely, no Shampo or Conditioner. Still, the facilities are good (including a kitchennette) and the location is great - being just at the edge of the city centre. The location meant it was easy to gain access to bars, cafes and restaurants and only a km from the waterfront and lagoon area.

A great little gem in Darwin. Simple, but clean, very comfortable and a great pool. Great communication and very friendly and helpful staff. The kids were a bit scared of the squeaky bunk beds which need a tightening up but they slept fine eventually. Right in the heart of town and includes parking. Very handy. Will stay again.

We found Capitanos to be in a perfect location to stay after our visit to the theatre next door. An immaculately clean refurbished studio unit with kitchenette ,crisp linen and a comfy large bed ticked all our boxes. To be able to relax in the shade by a lovely pool was a bonus.
