Pleasantly surprised by how economical, comfortable and charming this resort was. We enjoyed our garden bungalow stay. Staff were friendly and helpful. Continual cleaning all around the property keeps it attractive and pleasant for guests. Highly recommend.

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...

“Book a bungalow. Think there are 3 different sizes but we found the small one is more than adequate for a short stay.”

“I would certainly book a bungalow rather than a standard room. Well worth the difference in price. Near the pool is a good position.”
