I recently stayed at the Palms. Central, tropical, lush, comfortable and very relaxing. The pool is in a beautiful setting. The bungalow I stayed in was cool and comfortable away for the humidity of Darwin. Lovely little kitchen area and staff attending to the room daily. The reception staff were very attentive and nothing was too much for them. Thanks...

Nice oasis near to CBD. Room was as expected, maybe should have gone for a bungalow. Parking limited but we didnt have any issues, but proximity to CBD and NT Parliament mean paid parking in street outside. Pool was great, although spoilt by some drunks who were very noisy and drinking out of glass bottles (one got smashed). Overall would...

We stayed at Palms City Resort for the 3rd time and again thoroughly enjoyed our time. The location is perfect, the service is great. Staff are always smiling and helpful. Our room cost was very reasonable and included breakfast. Will definitely be staying there the next time we visit Darwin.

Staff was friendly and helpful on checking and our room clean and modern. Quiet and well-maintained. Breakfast buffet, extra $23 ok but overpriced. Free parking. Pick a room in the back, as there is a side gate with closer access to the CBD.

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...
