The water in the shower wasn’t hot. It kept going from hotish too cold.
It’s been nearly 2 weeks now and I still haven’t gotten my deposit money back I’ve tried calling more than 3 times since then and every time has been. Should take 3-5 business days, mabye 5-15 business days then now they are saying that I have to call my bank and ask them. Just a big stuff around.

The property was clean and generally a pleasant environment including the pool and the reception area.
It’s easy walking to the waterfront, depending which route you choose to use. The easiest is along Esplanade rd to the lifts (2) which take you down to the man made beaches, and restaurants at the Waterfront, or to your cruise.
The bus terminal is about a 5min walk, as is the Mall whilst coles is only a few minutes away.

Whilst I was there it was quiet at night unless there were some rowdy guests .

The washing machine cost 6.00 plus washing powder. And the dryer was another 6.00.

Having the park opposite made for enjoyable morning walks.

For a great stay in Darwin I recommend Palm City Resort for comfort and convenience. Ten minute walk to town or the harbour or the cliff top walk which goes for miles.
In house breakfast is great and the rooms comfy, clean and spacious. My wife loved the pool to cool off after a walk.

Room tip: They have secure parking but don’t park under the trees. The bats will make a mess of your car. Book early for best deals.

Had a wonderful stay in one of the bungalows. It was lovely to have privacy, peace and quiet, and the lush green garden has a tropical feel. Strangely, the switch for the main lights inside the bungalow was outside on the deck, there was no switch inside. It seems that the main hotel rooms have been beautifully renovated, but the bungalows are still in original condition (which is fine, just not as fancy and modern as the hotel rooms currently). The guest laundry is handy.

We love the convenient location, casual old darwin feel staying in a tropical villa. Tropical well maintained gardens and pool, daily room service.
Have stayed before and have a favourite villa. We stayed 1 night in one of the normal rooms, nicely renovated and spacious.

Room tip: Try to avoid school holidays.
