Stayed 7 nights at resort wing, It has smart modern spacious Rooms & offers direct access to large lagoon pool & bar so has appeal for sunbathing & chilling out.
Staff are a bit pressured, Lots of guest services below 5 star standard , but understand since hr options limited. Definitely a top location close to Cullen Bay restaurant strip, local markets & local clubs & situated right on beachfront.
Security guards were unusually affable, when you needed help or local advise, maybe the front office / management crew could get some tips in guest communication from them.
Overall Darwin is a fantastic getaway in their warmer months & good base to explore & this stay over given the other options was a pretty good.

Location is gorgeous and the Pools are stunning

Arrived at hotel around 4.30pm, check in is at 3pm. Room still not ready ? Check in is all over the place, very confusing. We had 3 rooms. Once in our room, maintenance was in there fixing something so we had to sit on our verandah for another hour! Check out was just as confusing .

Rooms clean. Mini bars are no longer available in the ‘basic’ rooms including the executive suites but you will still have wine glasses, champagne glasses etc? It’s only available in the expensive lagoon rooms facing the pool.

There is no information in the rooms at all , don’t know how to work air con, no info about the hotels, room service etc , no info about Darwin in general . Was very odd. No kids under 18 available to swim in the infinity pool everyday. Bit disappointing for my 16 year old.

For such a high calibre resort they missed the personal touches.

Sitting around the pool. Got crowded and pushed out by young group of pommys about 20 people in their 20’s. We went for a swim. We got out of the pool and they were sitting on our table and chairs. No toilet paper in the toilets in the casino.

Visited here twice on recent trip to Darwin. Its a cool oasis in the wet season where temps were up around 37 degrees each day. Lots of restaurant options but we opted for the sports bar so we could watch the cricket. Meals were huge, very well priced and quite good. Would recommend visiting for lunch, a quiet bet or even just a drink.

We stayed there in June 2021. The staff were excellent, very friendly and nothing was too much trouble.
The rooms are comfortable without being outstanding.
The Vue restaurant for breakfast and also dinner was good value surprisingly gly. Normally hotel restaurants are over priced and basic.

The Casino is an easy bus ride from the city. Casino staff were very friendly and I enjoyed a couple of hours here. Sometimes in Darwin it's good to get out of the heat and enjoy the air conditioning of somewhere like the Casino.

We visited the Casino on a couple of occasions. The two course senior meals on offer were delicious and well priced. A large variety and quantity of gaming machines available for use. Pleasant, helpful staff.

Has heaps of fun. Had no idea how to play roulette but just whacked my chips down on my kids birthday numbers. Came out $130 in front. Had a few rounds of drinks but charged differently each time that was a little disappointing but other than a great night out.

Was shocked people were in rubber thongs and shorts for a casino at night time. Save time and go to both casino and Mindel beach markets on the same night (Thursday and Sunday) as they are in walking distance to each other.

We regularly stayed and played at SkyCity during our regular Darwin visits and would often pay more than other accommodation just for the convenience of being able to walk back to our room from the casino, but last year we found that they had closed the bar near the roulette tables and replaced it with computer roulette games. Well we thought will stay in the keno area and use that bar. NO it closes early. This means we have to walk all the way up the other end to get a drink and then walk back. (WE DONT PLAY POKIES) we enjoyed sitting in the keno area near the restaurant having a drink, not anymore. Thanks To bad Management who only care about pokies we will no longer frequent this place or stay in your expensive overrated rooms.
