This hotel combines the excitement of a casino with the beauty of the beach. This property serves best the thrill seekers and the sun seekers. With its location on the Mindil Beach, Skycity Darwin Hotel is a short drive from the central business district and only a few steps away from the shoreline. All the rooms are fresh and bright with balconies overlooking the water. A well-equipped business center is designed for those with jobs to think about. The hotel also offers free shuttles that take guests to the central business district twice a day. But with the beach and Mindil Markets right by the hotel, and Cullen Bay’s restaurants a short stroll up the road, there is just no need to venture far. Keeping all guests in mind, the casino is kept separate from the hotel with minimal overlapping territory. Skycity Darwin Hotel, being an award winning hotel, is definitely worth the visit.

Good grounds, average rooms

Swimming pools, location, restraunts
The grounds and location were amazing. The buildings were a little short on maintenance. The rooms were a little tired, could have done with a fresh coat of paint for a 5 star hotel and the cost, however all hotels are very expensive in Darwin.

Great location

Pool,nightlife and people.
Deluxe rooms for $315 sounds reasonable for peak season. Bit disappointed ,closer to expensive standard room,wooden shutters let Sun stream in from 7am.Had to hang rug over windows for a sleep in.

Superior King Deluxe Lagoon

Pool access from your own balcony. Sundeck chairs on balcony. Absolutely stunning luxurious room with silent aircon, massive amazing bathroom
Absolutely loved this room. We stayed in a cheaper one the first night and this room made up for it. We paid top $ but it was worth it. We sunbathed on our own private deck that led to the pool and drank delicious cocktails from the pool bar. I want to go back NOW!

Skycity Hotel Darwin - Delux Room

Facilities, Peaceful, Beachfront
I read a number of negative reviews and saw pics on the Deluxe rooms and felt I knew what I was up for. I hated having to pay sooo much money for what was more like a 3.5 star hotel room. Saving grace was that we knew we were booked into the Superior King (see my other review for this one).

The grounds, pools an view
It was fine the pools and grounds an casino were excellent but the rooms are not five star not a chance iv been in nicer 3 stars. I stayed in a delux ocean view room and there was nothing that made the room any different than a three or four star, there was a fridge that's it, the sliding door to the balcony fell off when it was opened and nearly smashed. Balcony was dirty the hand rails were filthy and the paint chipped off. Ants all over the balcony wall not even a hanger in the ward robe for clothes, I wudnt care about any of this usually I'm easy Id stay anywere but it's supposed to be a 5 star room and it's definitely not, I don't know who awards these stars but they need to have a look at an actual 5 star and go back an rate that room again.

Very disappointed

Not much to say here... The food for dinner at Sunset was just beautiful, & the pool was great.
it was a surprise birthday gift to my husband of 41 years & I so soooo disappointed & let down, we were unable to get on the internment for hours & found out after 4 calls to stitch that they had not discharged the man who was in the room before us.. The room did not look clean or fresh... The bed was so hard... The air condition keep stitching it's self off through out the night... We were to have a beach front view, yes we could see the beach through the trees!!! The garden outside our 2 nd story room was all dead & look just terrible... For the price we paid for one night was so over priced for what we got... We are local people to Darwin & I will never tell any of our visitors to our town to stay their every again.

Sky City Darwin Casino

Close to home, Close to Home & Close to Home:)
It was OK. 6 bucks for a bottle of water is a bit harsh. Most places in the world you get a couple of small complimentary bottles per day.
