Very tired property. In need of investment. No soap towels in room. Needed to ask for coffee and drink complementary vouchers associated with booking. When asked about voucher for complementary bus into city, I was instructed to get the public bus at my expense. When asked about room upgrade quoted $50 extra per night more than booking via a travel... More

About 10 minutes from Darwin CBD and 15 mins from the airport. Handy for the Mindil markets (Thursday night) - right next door! Right on the beach with 2 great pools. Quiet, clean, large and spacious air-conditioned room with balcony overlooking gardens and beach (I booked a superior room). Amazingly no noise from the casino next door - in fact... More

Best pools in Darwin .If you want a place to just relax by the pool, there is no better place in Darwin and we have stayed in a few different hotels in town. Double tree by Hilton on the esplanade pool good but hotel very old. Skycity is a good 15 min walk to town but worth it . Superior... More

Couldn't say it was 5 star comparing to other cities 5 star accommodation however the bed was comfy. The pool area looked lovely and tropical and the rooms were clean but overall hotel was a little dated. The casino itself isn't anything to rave about all the pokey machines pretty much the same and no one on the tables. Very... More

Might be 5 star for Darwin but not compared to other 5 star accommodation. But dated however staff were friendly and bed was comfortable and clean. Pool area definitely looked relaxing. Casino however wasn't worth going into. Old all the same machines just different names and no one on the tables bit disappointing.

Stayed here for work for one night as no other accomodation available in Darwin. The night cost $585 in a superior lagoon room. Nice room and outside beautiful with your own private access to and from the lagoon but definitely not worth the money paid. Nothing much luxuries about the room for example had satchel coffee and no Pod machine... More

The most pathetic hotel we have stayed in on this trip. We arrived at reception, there were many people waiting to register, yet only one receptionist. Most hotels have an informative book in the room telling all the details and services of the hotel. Sky City has a little credit! There is no way to find how the air conditioner... More

This was a brilliant hotel and everything contributed to a great stay. Rooms were large and attractive with balcony views that were breathtaking. Meals were available at the casino and ranged from economical snacks to top of the range restaurant and and amazing buffet. The sunset views over the water were a photographers delight. Although not serious casino attendees there... More

We called around a year ago to stay in the Lagoon Access rooms at the Skycity Lagoon Resort to be told that these rooms were already occupied. We were told that we could ask be placed on request for the room upgrade and ask closer for availability and if available we could pay a further $50 a day which would... More
