Decided to take up the NT Special rates and indulge in a lagoon deluxe room.Excited we arrived at reception to be met by a very unenthusiastic staff member who volunteered absolutley no information what so ever.( maybe thought as we were locals needed no help!).
Our excitement changed for the better as unloading the bags from our car we were greeted by a buggy driver who picked us up and filled us with enthusiasm and informationen route to our room.Our room was lovely, 2 double beds filled the room with room to spare.Decor lovely, large flat screen tv ( multiple stations) and an extra armchair. A small bar fridge filled with drinks but no free water what so ever. An electric jug and good supplies of tea and instant coffee were on offer.Huge selection of pillows
The bathroom huge with a double sink and double shower. Sensor light at night so that a bathroom light went on with movement and was easy to locate.
Outside was a little alcove with a settee and 2 armchairs under a fan. Was lovely sitting there early mornings and evenings with a coffee. I loved the privacy these offered as you could sit there without been on full view of everyone in the pool. That area was enclosed by a perspex fence then there were 2 sun lounges on the next section before hitting the magnificent pool.
The pool is large and just beautiful. 24 hour access to the pool as informed by our buggy driver. It was even more inviting at night with the lighting.Each room has their own ladder to use to climb out of the pool.
The beach area was down the other end to us but it was amazing. We felt as if we had left Darwin and were somewhere overseas on a holiday. The kids played, swam, built sandcastles and no fear of a crocodile what so ever!
We will stay again next year with the NT rates as although I loved the room would not pay full season rates. The buggy drivers and the garden staff made the whole atmosphere without them the sutomer service would have been a major let down.
