Hotel guests seem to come second to the money spinning Casino.
Cove restaurant and staff excellent, breakfasts are superb.

il piatto food not spectacular and service even worse. Can't even get' no parmesan on spaghetti' right .Couldn't take the half bottle of wine back to our room as it was off the premises ????
Booked airport taxi 24 hours ahead and discovered it had not been booked when arranging an early morning call.
Ocean view bedroom ok but bathroom needs a MAJOR overhaul.
Cannot turn the air con off !! in order not to be frozen at night you have to turn the temp up and the speed down. The hotel controls the air con.
Swimming pools are good especially the lagoon.. Lagoon rooms seem to get no sun even though they are swim up . Location good if you don't want to walk into town. Take the free bus.

5 star? no I'm sorry, still a long way to go.

Room Tip: Ocean views are lovely

Stayed here during the recent Darwin Cap Carnival rooms were good stayed in the older rooms they were ok but it was a bit run down especially outside in the hallways. Next time I will opt for the new poolside rooms they look fantastic. Everything outside was excellent easy walking to distance to the beach coming from a Melbourne winter the poolside was great. I am not really a casino person so the gambling didn't really appeal but enjoyed the stay.

Room Tip: Go for the poolside rooms

Dear mercuryprinciple,

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at SKYCITY Darwin.

Our existing hotel does look a little tired when compared to our brand new state of the art Resort we recently opened, however SKYCITY Darwin are committed to a continual program of upgrading and refurbishing facilities.

I am glad that you enjoyed your stay however and were able to escape the cold winter weather in Melbourne. We hope to be able to welcome you back to SKYCITY Darwin in the near future.

Ok, so I didn't actually stay at the hotel, however I'm currently based in Darwin and decided to have a relaxation day with a couple of friends so we headed off to Skycity. None of us are gamblers so we didn't bother with the casino but we did have a seafood platter and a number of other appetisers and salads at the Cove restaurant - it was devine!

The seafood was some of the most delicious, fresh and delicately prepared that I have ever experienced. From the glassware, cutlery and crockery we were highly impressed before we even commenced our meals but the food was absolutely scrumptous and the service staff were lovely! We were extremely surprised with what good value the pricing was too - salads were less than $10 and were huge serves that you'd probably share with four others and the platter for two could proably feed 4-6 people - I'll definitely go back :)

Second stop we had bookings at the Lagoon Day Spa for an hour massage and 1/2 hour facial - the rooms and quality of the treatments were also impeccable. If you have a treatment at the spa you are entitled to use the pool facilities ... which we did! The swimming pool which is more the size of a decent crystal clear lagoon with sand we devine! we finished our afternoon off by lazying in the pool at the swim up bar and enjoying some cocktails.

The whole day was a wonderful experience and I felt thoroughly spoilt, relaxed and revived at the end of it!

Lagoon rooms are a must do, they create the ultimate resort feel within the city of darwin, you feel you could be in any tropical resort in the world. Double plate galss means the pool is open 24 hours & you literally cannot hear a thing if people are taking advantage of late night pool fun. Just fantastic

In Darwin for some business meetings, and booked a poolside room. These are very new rooms, and this is one time the ground floor is better than the top floor! You have a beautiful deck with sun lounges and then you can slide straight into the huge free-form pool. This also has a swim up bar, a sand beach and is just gorgeous. All tiles in the room so no stress about wet cossies and feet after a swim. Large bathroom with open out wall so you can have a fun spa bath! We had a spa bath and single shower, while our friends had a double shower and no spa. While the rooms were great, the food was fairly average. Lots of backpackers working here in restaurants, so a bit unpredictable. Gluten free wasn't an easy option. Also visited the Lagoon Day Spa - very lovely and enjoyable massage. Location is out of town so about $ 11 in taxi. Right next door to Mindil Beach markets on a Thursday night. Most amazing service was up in the Lotus Bar - good on you Paul!

Room Tip: Ground floor - pool side
