We stayed here 2 nights rooms were clean and comfortable, felt very safe and secure. Kids loved swimming in the pool. BBQ area would be better closer to the pool area rather than down the back, we used our own as didn't like where it was. That the only down side great place to stay and within walking distance to...

It was lovely to read you enjoyed your stay and found us clean and safe. We have actually been discussing putting a BBQ next to the swimming pool so thank you for your thoughts also. Regards Angie More

Nice place with comfortable bungalow-like accomodation. The bathrooms are very narrow but otherwise the rooms are great and pacious with private kitchenette. Pool and lots of playing are for kids and nice parking. A bit of a walk to the city, but still nicely located.

Stayed last week for two nights. Arrived from Ayers Rock for a break before further travel north. Very quiet and safe location. Room was fairly basic, but clean and equipped. Pool very small compared to the photograph, but very refreshing on a hot day. Friendly reception staff. Wifi was very good.

The so called "resort" is very far away from the town, it will take you at least 30 mins to walk to the center. And there is really nothing around this place. The apartments are little houses, nothing really special. It was clean, but smelled moist. The pool is very small (the photographer did an amazing job for the catalog... More

Thank you for your response. I was sorry to read you felt there was nothing around us since we are in a lovely part of Alice Springs next to several other hotels and the Alice Springs Golf Club and 2 klms from the town centre. I was concerned though when you mentioned the reception not printing one page off for... More

Enjoyed the property, great location, villas comfortable and value. Day tours picked up at the hotel which was convenient. Also very convenient was the shop and the free WiFi. Felt safe with the security around the property

This is the second time I have stayed at Desert Palms Resort and again it did not disappoint. Great staff and lovely clean comfortable and safe accommodation. Close to nice restaurants and with views of the Macdonald Ranges, I really love this side of town

I stay at Desert Palms at least once a month for work and the place is like a second home to me. Located on Barrett Drive, down the road from the Casino, it is thankfully a very quiet place to stay. Also a two minute drive from the busy town centre, not too far from everything - absolutely walking distance.... More

We spent three nights in Alice Springs and were really happy with our accommodation at Desert Palms Resort. The accommodation was good value - very affordable. There is a swimming pool and parking and it was super quiet and good for relaxing with a wine :) The staff were friendly and helpful and gave us some travel ideas. It doesn't... More

We had a lovely stay at Desert Palms. We found the rooms to be spacious and clean, and they had all the amenities you would expect. Staff were friendly and courteous. The children enjoyed the pool and free WiFi.

I stay here on a regular basis and the staff are always friendly and accommodating. I always feel welcome. It's affordable and has a great pool area for those awful hot Alice days. Walking distance to everything. Room is always clean and beds are comfortable, air con is good. Highly recommended.
