The house/room was very dated, but clean. The shower was dripping the whole time. The main lightning in the room and bathroom were TL tubes. Most of the guests at the complex were contractors. Therefor was perhaps the large guest laundry. The swimming-pool was set in a nice landscape and the staff was very friendly

Thank you for your review. It was nice to read you found our rooms clean and the staff friendly they all like to read comments like that. I was sorry to hear about the dripping tap, I am not sure if you notified reception but I are sure they would have organised to get it fixed if they had known.... More

I stayed at the Desert Palms resort and found it to be wonderful. The resort was well located near the casino and a pleasant walk into the city centre. My villa was clean and had everything I needed. I especially appreciated the kitchen facilities. The pool was great for cooling off on the hot days although I must admit it... More

Stayed for a couple of nights in January, facilities here were great, however, the room itself was quite tired looking and could do with some decorating, other than that, can't complain! Didn;t get to use the pool facilities due to weather being unkind to us and raining for our entire stay!

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...

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
