We booked a villa with an outdoor spa and could not have been more surprised. The resort is right in the heart of Darwin so you could park the car there and walk everywhere. The villa was immaculate, the bed was comfortable and the spa was a little piece of private paradise. The staff are friendly, the pool was great...

the rooms are very clean and tidy and the staff cannot help enough. Pool is fabulous, and the amenities are good. Palms City's location is fantastic as it is right on the esplanade and just 2 minutes walk to the bus station and town centre. Definitely staying here again!

The rooms although clean are pretty basic. The pool is small but no matter how small when you stay in Darwin you do need a pool as you can't swim at the beach. The rooms contain microwaves which is handy if you don't want to eat out and there is a Coles around the corner. The staff were lovely and...

For every family out there traveling with children, I truly couldn't encourage you enough to stay with Palms City. The staff went above and beyond to help ensure my family enjoyed our stay. It's often hard traveling with a toddler (little people with big emotions!!) but our entire stay was nothing short of perfect. Beautiful resort, beautiful rooms and beautiful...

I have had the pleasure of staying at Palm City Resort on the Esplanade in Darwin City a number of times. I find the customer service outstanding, the rooms and villas are clean and tidy and have all the necessities. I particularly love the Spa Villas when I am looking for that little bit of romance. Everything I could want...

I've just come back from my third visit at Palms City Resort and I cannot speak more highly of both the hotel and staff, especially hotel manager Emma. My husband and I decided we wanted to have a mini getaway before our baby comes at the end of September and I can't think of anywhere else I'd rather stay. I've...
