Mindarie Marina Resort Reviews
Picturesque Marina Resort Jul 11, 2012
Only 37kms from the Perth CBD in Western Australia, this breathtaking resort boasts many superlatives.
We requested a one bedroom suite (usually $175p/night) for 7 days, they gave us a special deal at $150p/night, costing us $1050 all up.
The staff were friendly and very accommodating, providing us with the typical hotel services including daily room make up with fresh linen and a laundry service etc.
The room decor was quite dated, but that mattered very little to us. We had our own huge balcony overlooking the marina and out further to the Indian ocean. The room included air conditioning, free wifi, satellite TV, mini bar, phone and it even came with provisions for ironing.
But the gem at this place was the resort itself. There were bars, restaurants, fast food outlets (tastiest fish and chips ever), places to shop, all set out along a crescent shaped boardwalk underneath the hotel and overlooking the marina.
One feature I enjoyed was the ability to phone any of the cafes or restaurants and order your breakfast or dinner from the phone in your room. They'd give you a time and when you were ready you could just stroll down to the boardwalk, walk in and eat without ever having to wait for your meal.
We toured the micro brewery (and sampled a few ales of course), you could swim at the resort pools, go surfing, snorkeling or fishing on any number of charter boats.
We'd walk along the rock wall that stretched right out past the marina protecting it from the harsh sea or just relax on the beach on (to the left of the marina) that went all the way down the coast to Fremantle.
Overall a great place to stay if you feel like a holiday out west, but away from the hustle and bustle of Perth.
