If you find the extra $$$ grab a new lagoon room with direct plunge into pool. It was beautiful. Large spacious room that easily acommodated family of 4. Bathroom huuuuge. Balcony with extra seating and private sun lounges. It was a real treat. Initially my only reservation pre booking was location (non central) and I would now say this is... More

The Rooms are now looking a bit tired, but have all the necessary comforts & appointments. Our room, on the 1st floor directly behind Reception was a little noisy when the courtyard fountain was operating & if the balcony door was... More

A good solid hotel on the beach front in Darwin. My room was well presented and appointed. The hotel and casino has all the bells and whistles that you would expect. The hotel gym was a bit ordinary with only a few machines that didn't really work that well. Food at the restaurants was all ok - nothing startling. I... More

A trip to the top end during the wet season is an opportunity to experience this beautiful part of the world at a time when tourists are relatively sparse. It is something I would happily do again however the would definitely be doing more exploration of the accommodation There are some great restaurants at Skycity - il Piatto and EVOO... More

I stayed for 5 nights in this comfortable location. The beds were great it was clean and the service was all that I wanted. The reception and concierge were more that happy to help. The variety of activities made my stay really busy. Right next to Mindil night market and on Mindil beach. Two wonderful pools see photos and plenty... More

The pool and outdoor area is sublime!! What a fabulous and stunning location. We absolutely loved lazing and relaxing by the pool - it was so hard to leave... The food was fabulous and the staff were all friendly and professional. My only disappointment was our room, which was not 5 star and needed attention. Firstly, the grouting in the... More

Stayed a week at Skycity Hotel in June while attending Charles Darwin University. Fantastic location right on the beach, excellent rooms and wonderful friendly staff. Room service was very quick, buffet at the casino was above average compared to most, is also cheaper before 7 pm. Ground floor rooms have a great private courtyard with access to grounds. Spotlessly clean... More

This was the 4th or 5th time we've stayed here.. Its a lovely place & we have always enjoyed it. However, it seems that some maintenance issues are not being taken care of.. The toilet set in our main bathroom was in need of repair & the air conditioning controls in the living area of our room did not work... More
