I booked a swim out lagoon room for my husbands birthday. This was our second stay as we enjoyed our first visit a year earlier so much I said we must do it again. We were not disappointed. It was so lovely relaxing and enjoyable. If you are wanted to have a special occasion you can't go wrong booking in... More

Just back from 6 wonderful; days in Darwin staying at the SkyCity. The room was spacious with all amenities and cleanliness. Room service was spot on and the pillow menu worked a treat. No noisy air conditioner - they have all this just right. If you want to just veg out the Tv has over 60 channels for you to... More

Great location right next to mindl beach markets during the dry season. Plenty of restaurants and right on the beach which was great for a morning/afternoon walk. New pool is amazing too. Quite an expensive hotel for what it was though

3rd visit, has got everything in one place. If staying a few days and you enjoy sitting down with a wine on your balcony, be sure to ask for a room with a balcony that is accessible when booking. First 2 trips, balcony screwed shut and a faded sign saying under repairs. This trip asked for a balcony that is... More

Room smells funny, as if it hasn't been used for a while. Paid for a room with balcony, but unfortunately the balcony is off limits due to refurbishment. Not worth the cost of $450/night. Poor value for money. On the plus side, the breakfast buffet was great.

Pro's - Lovely swimming pool - Close to Mindil Beach Con's - Not close to anything else - we had to catch a cab everywhere. - Buffet breakfast is expensive & crappy pre-bought food. I've had better food at school camp! - The cheap linen feels sticky & gross - Half the equipment in the already very small gym was... More

There are many positives about this place, but first some negatives. There 11 nights, rooms not cleaned till late in the day, so there was no enjoyment of having a nice clean hotel room! Area around the pool not cleaned in the morning. Saw alcohol glasses left out on ground all day. Pool deck chair mats left out all night... More

As a corporate traveler I spend a lot of time in hotels. I lower my expectations when I stay at any that I'm not a loyalty member of. But even with my lower expectations this place was a huge disappointment. And it's not the rooms, although they are not 5 star quality, it's the service. They just didn't care. In... More

I am astounded by the Skycity Darwin. Yes is is a bit aged but they have done some renovations in the bathrooms to bring it out of the early 80's - I'm not that picky, so if a hotel has the basics right I'm usually ok. The Good - view from the sea view rooms is magical. Proximity to Mindle... More
