The hotel complex is vast and includes a casino,choice of restaurants,bars,two pools,spa with the sea metres away.Its also only 20 minutes walk from the main centre of Darwin. Air conditioned throughout. The best restaurant is the Dragon Court, a Chinese restaurant with good size portions and very friendly staff.

This tropical resort with gigantic lagoon pool is beautiful. Where possible, request a ground floor room so you can have direct access into the pool. You can then swim across to the swim up bar. There are 5 restuarants on site and it is worth trying a different one each night if you can. Would stay again :)

The newer part of the hotel looks much fresher and nicer with rooms opening directly onto the lagoon pool. The pool itself is very nice...

The staff here are wonderful, terrific and helpful What lets this place down is the smell at the reception desk which sort of filters into the bedrooms Like a musty dry cleaning damp smell The rooms are spotless but that initial smell is quite off putting The pool was terrific and the restaurants absolutely wonderful Gosh the staff are great...
