My husband and I were transiting through Darwin on our way overseas for our honeymoon. We thought we would spend the night in town so I could rekindle my love for Mindil beach markets. (It's worth a night in Darwin just to go to the markets). Upon arrival at the resort we were greeted like we were part of the... More

Stayed in a garden bungalow for 11 nights. Room was serviced daily. Electric bbq on veranda was easy to use and cleaned daily by staff. Excellent location, 5 minutes walk to Coles and 10 minutes to the Waterfront. Numerous restaurants within a few minutes walk. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed for four nights and the place is quite nice. The rooms are a little cramped, but not an issue for us. There were two big problems for us though: The Wifi was hopeless. It kept dropping out for our entire stay. If we went out on to our balcony we could get reasonable reception, but then you get... More

Convenient location- walking distance to waterfront precinct and esplanade, walk to mall/coles (approx. 3 blocks), walk to bus (approx. 2 blocks). Stayed in bungalow near pool- electric BBQ was great. Only downside was could hear music from hotel/deck bar (in street behind) into early hours of morning.

We stayed for 3 nights in a room (2 beds) with an extra trundle bed. We ere lucky enough to have a private balcony (which I would recommend!) so could have some peace after the kids settled. Cosy for our family of 4, but it was set in great gardens, nice pool. Would return

Stayed 2 nights in a garden bungalow. From the moment we arrived, we were met with a very friendly smile from the staff.our villa was surrounded by a beautiful garden which was very relaxing.the room was very clean and comfortable. If you are planning a trip to Darwin, Palms City Resort is higly recommended by us.

Discovered this place quite by accident but it's now become my go to place when I come to Darwin on business. Quite unusual for a city hotel comprising a collection of bungalows with a distinctly Balinese feel surrounded by tropical plants but within easy walking distance of the main tourist strip along Mitchell Street. It's much nicer than a standard... More

Great location alongside esplanade and mostly quiet. Clean and tidy. Very small room for three. Bit noisy on Saturday night with music from pub behind. Had to contact reception for towels and soap on number of occasions.

I frequently visit Darwin for work and always choose to stay at the Palms City Resort. Mel and her team go out of their way to always make me feel like I have arrived home. From the friendly reception staff to the always impeccably clean rooms, my stay at the Palms never disappoints. Given its convenient location, I would highly... More

Mel and Emma were wonderful and provided one of the more pleasant accommodations for a getaway that's right in the cbd. The unit was tucked away surrounded by foliage, enough to hide the personal jacuzzi waiting in the yard of your tropical paradise, very clean room, and reminded me of Bali without the annoying factors. Great location, cozy ambiance, and... More
