Our room was very clean. The staff were happy and helpful. The WiFi worked well and the pool was lovely. The gardens around the resort are full of beautiful palms and are lush,green and well maintained. We will come back :)

Located on the esplanade. Walk thruogh to Mitchell St. Very relaxing and friendly. Book tours at reception. Beautiful pool with huge relaxing space around with sun lounges. Villas have own electric BBQ and deck with table and chairs, set in tropical garden. Excellent laundry. If leaving for an overnight trip and returning can leave luggage. If you want glamour probably... More

Loved our garden villa, although it was rather small but set in private gardens. Perfect location to nearly all central Darwin attractions. Walking distance to great eateries. Staff were very friendly.

If your looking for somewhere with a great location, but still feels secluded this place is for you! Great pool, loved the cabins and the feeling of being more secluded than you really are. Highly recommend!

We flew in from London jet-lagged and plonked ourselves here for a couple of nights prior to driving down the Middle. The rooms were clean and very comfortable with a good sized bathroom, fridge and efficient air con. Staff couldn't be more friendly and helpful and were happy to relay messages to and from the airline who lost my bag,... More

We had the bungalow and were very happy with the way it presented. It was neat, clean and comfortable. We also had the breakfast which was pretty average for the price but the convenience made up for it. Would recommend staying here. The room was serviced each day

I suppose I could best describe this resort as like Bali at its best without hawkers at the gates. It is very well located on the Esplanade, close to but shielded from noisy Mitchell Street. We stayed in a garden bungalow alongside the pool, surrounded by palms and pandanus trees. We found it an easy place to relax in although... More

Staff cheerful and helpful. Laundry facilities up with the best and spotlessly clean. Central city, tourist information and wharf area all within easy walking distance. We had a standard room which was adequate for our needs. Clean and serviced daily. One we would recommend.

This was my 6th personal visit to Palms City, although I have had groups staying here annually since the hotel opened 12 (?) years ago. The hotel offers a relaxing tropical vibe, yet is just a 2 min walk to bustling Mitchell St with its many cafes, bars and restaurants and a short stroll to the Smith St Mall. The... More

Very friendly and accommodating staff. The motel is right in the middle of town, close to all facilities and restaurants. Secure parking available. Laundry also available on site. Would recommend this motel !
