4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed only 1 night for work and wished i could have stayed longer. Staff were very friendly and happy to help when i checked out earlier and was waiting for colleagues. They held my bags and i sat by the beautiful pool. The rooms are medium sized. Good for 2 people. Balcony small but great view and nice sea breeze.... More

Beautiful setting but disappointed as paid for a balcony with sea-view as not allowed to access your balcony 'on the first floor' (balcony door locked tight with a key) and outside furniture removed; so no glass of wine in those wonderful sea breezes and had to cancel breakfast alfresco. Asked to be moved and was only offered an upgrade for... More

My husband and I spent our 25th wedding anniversary in a Lagoon resort king room for two nights. Direct entry into the beautifully kept pool was very welcome. The actual room itself was perfect. Clean, spacious and just what we wanted. Room service was great, as was the champagne and strawberries on arrival. Breakfast and dinner at the buffet was... More

YOU MUST THOUGH (your choice) use valet parking. Its worth the $15 a day easily! .Otherwise its a hot dry walk out to the general Casino car park.... More

Beautiful on sunset looking out to the ocean, Rooms are nice and tidy with good views as well. Stayed here for work and would stay again if the price is right. Pool has a great view and wasn't busy when I was there. Some of the restaurants there are quite pricey but food is good. Not in the main city... More

The hotel has had a revamp , I stayed in the older side and went to the casino.. Wow it was smelling and I mean bad of serious body odour. There isn't much to do there but drink. The staff weren't really too phased about good service.. Which I felt was disappointing for the money I had spent

Firstly, this hotel is rather remote from the city centre and is at least 20+ minutes walk from the city centre of Darwin and the heat is such that you will probably not want to walk so there is a cost to get to town centre. On arrival (we were room only basis) the receptionist took the usual imprint of... More

A great hotel to stay, close to all facilities & attractions. Rooms are reasonable and spacious. The " All you can eat ' bistro is just great. Make sure you try the seafood night - very reasonable. Darwin is a fairly expensive city in any case so you won't get away without putting your hand in your pocket. Skycity is... More
