You feel like you are in the jungle when inside. Rooms tastefully located. The cottages have nice sitting areas, hotel rooms all exit along a sidewalk with tables, so very social. free wi fi and nice beds. Easy parkiong and not be big a resort. THey must have a great gardner to make it all look so nice. Our patio... More

Stayed at Palms City for three nights last weekend. The resort was comfortable and rooms were well appointed. Air conditioning worked well and beds were good quality. I found the reception staff a little unfriendly and unwelcoming during all interactions but I had an enjoyable stay nonetheless. The housekeeping staff were all friendly. I would definitely stay again if travelling... More

We have recently had our 3rd stay at Palm City Resort in their Garden Villas and we love the place! Yes they are small but they have all we need, breakfast facilities, microwave and even your own BBQ on your verandah. The location is perfect, just around the corner from restaurants and bars and close to the waterfront. What we... More

Everything has been said already. We spent almost 2 weeks with you in Palms City Resort. Think the dates were 21.10.2014 to 31.10.2014. Our room was kept immaculate, with fresh towels and plenty of toiletries when needed. The Reception staff were amazing, the breakfast was the best we had in Australia for our month in your wonderful country. The pool... More

Found the Palms City Resort very comfortable although maybe rooms were a little cramped. But what we were mainly after was somewhere clean, comfortable and in a convenient location. This criteria was definitely filled by the resort. We were also impressed by the staff, who were very friendly & helpful. Would definitely recommend unless you are looking for somewhere to... More

Darwin at the end of the dry season is very humid and hot as the wet is due to start. We wanted a tropical feel but within walking distance to everything. We got it at the Palms City Resort staying in a self contained bungalow not attached to anyone else. It had great a/c and ceiling fans, tv, cute clean... More

We stayed here twice, on our way to and from Kakadu. We weren't looking for luxury and we didn't get it. Our room (both times) was a basic motel style with outdoor corridors: two levels and no lifts. The room was the definition of basic; not as nice as the lobby and outside would lead you to believe. There are... More

We stayed at the Palms for three nights before getting on the Ghan. It is well located, quiet and clean. It is not a new hotel but seems to be kept up very well. It is within walking distance to a good beach and he downtown core of Darwin. I would recommend this hotel to anyone going on the Ghan... More

The villa was great, it was clean and tidy. The resort is still close to shops and bars and restaurants but also opposite to bicentenial park. Staff were very friendly and prompt, nothing was a problem for them. Would recommend staying there mto anyone travelling to Darwin.
