The swimming pools are what makes this hotel, the lagoon pool is so relaxing, security kicked out 6 backpackers that had used the infinity pool for 2 days, they should of been asked to leave earlier. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are a good size and everything you need is there. Good location

Our room overlooked the pool with swim up bar & sand beach. It was spacious, beds comfy & room was very well proportioned. Its a big complex and quite a walk from reception & car park as everything is fenced off

Overly laid back and casual, very NT, (not today not tomorrow, we sort it when we are ready). We had lots of problems with our booking and then spent 20 minutes trying to find the room after being well confused by check in staff. Nice rooms and great location.

Must say I probably didn't put enough thought into my choice. Couldn't fault the staff, the cleanliness or the actual suite. Beds and pillows perfect. However it definitely is only suitable for a few days stay not 10. The pool location was in front of one of the restaurants, very little privacy. Beach access also was a bit of a... More

This is a great resort in a good location but the standards of house keeping leave a lot to be desired. Having booked a more expensive pool room, every day was a new experience in terms of what house keeping missed in our room. Did they forget soap, shampoo, body lotion, shaving equipment, coffee, milk, note pads or something else?... More

Darwin has so much to offer so much untapped potential and this hotel is much the same. There are no offers to support tourism like simple transport, staff didn't know about some of the croc farm places to visit and so on. Hotel breakfast over priced and poor quality

The SkyCity Darwin provided a great start to my holiday in Australia. We booked through the Hotels.com App and got a rate of AUD 488 inclusive of wi-fi for a Deluxe Room with Ocean view. Since we were flying in from Bali, the flight was scheduled to arrive at 06:30AM. I wrote to the hotel prior to arrival asking if... More

There's a lot of negative reviews on this place, but it wasn't my experience. Thought it was great, sure it's not 5 star. The rooms are a bit dated, but still very comfortable. Staff were very friendly and helpful and he pools were awesome. The lagoon pool is great with a swim up bar. Being from WA the drinks were... More
