The room was good, we had a one bedroom suite. Perfect for us and kids. The bed was terribly hard and annoying there wasn't any blackout curtains. Other than that, the staff is amazing, the breakfast buffet is fantastic, love the lagoon and overall a great place for a getaway!:)

Darwin's wet season pricing coupled with SKYCITY is a recipe for success. Less than $100 per night at a 5 star resort on the seafront of a capital city! Check in was a breeze, Debbie at concierge was extremely friendly and helpful. Ensuring the room configuration for booking suited the needs of our family. Check-in bonus was a handful of...

Stayed last week at Skycity Darwin for 2 nights . Great value for money. All amenities you need from casino to restaurants and a great ocean view. If they keep the rates around those I would stay there every trip. I go to Darwin approx 6-8 times per year.

You think the amount on the bill you get when you leave, is the amount the hotel takes from your creditcard......think again and check it. They charged us for a present from their shop, we didnot buy anything. They promised us not to charge for a late arrival, noshow was charged on our cc. We had some discussion via email...

My wife and I came to Darwin to celebrate our birthdays. We stayed at Skycity and chose the Deluxe King Ocean View room. The room size was reasonably generous (we didn't feel cramped) but the balcony was small. Although we were set back a small distance from the beach the view was still pleasant overlooking the grounds with an unobstructed...

My husband and I stayed in a room that had an amazing view. We woke every morning to the beautiful ocean. Skycity has great facilities, everything you need, the pools are beautiful with a view of the ocean you feel you are on your own island. The restaurants are of a high standard, very fresh and delicious. Most of all,...
