We had the room with the spa outside and stayed her for our "Valentines day" on a Saturday night. For us everything was mediocre except the hot water in the shower which I can say I have had better showers in third world countries. The room was comfortable, the bed wasn't that comfortable for us and we felt the entire...

Arrived with my family in Darwin without having a reservation. Palms was the third phonecall I made and were more than happy to provide a room with early check-in. The garden surroundings are a refreshing change in comparison with other hotels on the esplanade. Will definitely stay here again

This is the third time I have stayed and the location is very handy to the government departments and biusiness centre in Darwin. The bungalows are very comfortable and the pool is very welcome! The staff are friendly, and the ability to do laundry in the coin operated machines is good. I will be back.

Wouldn't let us in before 2pm as we arrived at 1.30. Was allowed to go for a swim in the pool while we wait. As if all rooms get cleaned at once. Room average, but clean, aircon didn't work the best, staff friendly. Kids weren't allowed to jump in the pool. Very close to all shops, all walking distance. Small...

We stayed here on two separate occasions. Both times the villas were delightful - clean and comfortable. It was lovely to have a private balcony. The villas are set amongst lovely tropical plants and palms. The resort is situated by the waterfront and is not too far from the centre of town. The breakfast menu is sufficiently varied and hot...

Stayed in one of the bungalows for three night over Xmas, along with other family members. The room itself was modern but was absolutely tiny. You couldn't swing a cat! It was nice to have the balcony though and the pool area was nice and the other guests very friendly! Having the electric BBQ was a bonus too. My only...

Good in-room facilities with tea, coffee, kettle and fridge, air-con, plenty of cupboard space and nice big bathroom. Lovely pool area with plenty of lounge chairs and bbq...
