Friendly staff, tropical gardens. Great location, overlooking esplanade, and across from park with Parliment House. close to CBD, can walk everywhere, Darwin at the start of the Dry season. Local bars and pubs are very easy going and casual.

We were very happy with our stay. It's 5 star service at a less expensive price which was unexpected. Loved the salt water pool and the greenery. Only downside is the breakfast isn't amazing, but there are lots of places nearby to eat so it isn't a big deal.

Nice room...friendly staff and a great location. Great pool area and easy walking distance for the CBD. For the price definitely worth it. Next time I will book a bungalow because they look amazing. The carpark is fairly tight though

Stayed here for a few nights and loved it. The rooms are generous, I had a standard and a superior room. The villas are nice in a great garden setting if you prefer that option. Great AC, nice staff, excellent location and free parking. Great location on the esplanade and the hustle of the restaurants nearby. Would happily go back...

I stayed at the Palms City Resort - villa was very clean and had everything I required in it. Gorgeous little veranda off the front with seating. A possum came down and we hand fed it banana. The villas are very private with lovely gardens around it. If you are a smoker, smoking is allowed on your bungalow/villa veranda.

The location is fantastic and it's walking distance to nearly everything that's happening in the city. You need to keep the air-conditioning on in your room, continuously, as it's really hot in Darwin and the room tends to heat up like crazy and takes at least an hour to cool down somewhat. Do not get late to go for breakfast....
