The staff are helpful & friendly. The restaurants are very cheap compared to other Darwin restaurants probably because they are a part of the Casino.
The room was nice and had a view of the lawn & could see the ocean. Bathroom and bed facilities were good.
Only one complaint - you cant turn off the air conditioner.
We went there in July and wanted to climatize ourselves to Darwin as we come from melbourne.
The evenings are not what you call hot & dont need an Aircon running 24/7.
We had to rug up to sleep the first night.
The rooms have a balcony tho so you can open the balcony door.
But it was still unnatural & unnecesary being in AC all the time.
Spoke to the desk & they said they have the ac on all the time to keep the mould away as its the tropics. We stayed at another hotel for the second half of our trip & could switch of the AC & didnt have problems with mould.
But Skycity also said its because they have a 5 star rating. Interesting
But overall and ok place
