    Beautiful stay!”
    The pools were great and selection of restaurants on location were fab. We had lots of fun in the casino too. The only negatives were the carpet on the landing was very wet and soggy and my pillow on arrival had a dirty mark on also they were charging $6 for a bottle of water in the room? but nothing really to complain about. We had a wonderful stay and would definitely come back.

    Located out of the city centre, but the public transport is cheap and convenient and there is always a taxi around. Both pools are very good. Free laundry on level 3 was a great bonus. Best to book the restaurants as it can get busy.

    Fantastic Hotel Right on the Beach”
    Room Size, Swimming Pool & Right on Ocean
    Having stayed in Darwin many times this must be the best hotel. Clean up to date rooms of a really good size. I was on ground floor and this had a great outdoor patio to sit at which lead straight on to the beautifully kept gardens. Great Bars and Restaurants as well as Casino. Right on the Beach but also with a fantastic swimming pool area. Would highly recommend staying at SkyCity Darwin as many of the other hotels are ageing and the rooms normally reflect this.

    Fabulous Sunset and Mouth-watering Buffet
    the hotel is indeed a 5 star hotel offering the best services (valet parking), free newspapers and free wifi. the pool is absolutely a relaxing place to be especially during sunset. the buffet dinner at sunset restaurant is mouth-watering and reasonably priced (around aud 30 per person with casino membership)

    Skycity hotel Darwin”
    Great location on the best beach in Darwin, very well maintained, generous and comfortable accommodation. Good range of eating choices, although Darwin is generally pretty expensive. Really good swimming pool with facilities for all ages to enjoy.
    This is a casino resort and the gaming facilities are very intrusive and impossible to escape - something that you might like or hate!
    This is very much a family resort, with great access to swimming and beach based activities and located within easy reach of the city centre by either the three times a day free hotel shuttle or a 5 minute taxi ride. The beach is the location for the iconic Darwin moonlight market each Thursday evening - not to be missed. Older people who do not love gambling may find the ever present noise of slot machines and the constant emphasis on spending time and money at the tables irritating, but if that is your scene then this is the place for you!

    Room (lagoon king) was nice but with very poor ventilation.. ”
    The view from the room to the lagoon pool is amazing. The room is fantasti. Clean and big..bed is comfortable. Only problem we had was the aircon. It was set to 17 but the room stilm very warm. Doesnt feel like 17 at all. We didnt had a good sleep only because of the airconditioning. We booked the resort room,paid an expensive room didnt expect the ventilation will not be so good. Quite disappointing

    Freezing room”
    The room was freezing. We could not turn the air conditioning off. The staff said it was set at 24 degrees - my thermometer on my IPhone said 18 degrees. I had to sleep with the door open all night (door to the balcony). Other people that I met during my stay complained about the same. My guess is, Being humid, the complex didn’t want any air conditioning turned off, to create mould. But I went to Darwin for the heat - not to be freezing cold of a night ! I complained twice, but fell on deaf ears. I would not go back, especially for anyone that suffers respiratory symptoms !!!

    Great 5 nights @ Sky City ”
    Our stay was part of our honeymoon. We were greeted with a complimentary bottle of champage which was a lovely gesture. The staff were very helpful and kind. The facilities were excellent - you don't need to leave the resort. We had a spa suite, it had everything you needed & the spa was excellent. Yes, the rooms are probably heading toward an upgrade but I was more than happy with the standard. Already thinking about our next visit :)

    Changes not for the better”
    Third year in a row we have stayed here. Was informed that there was a new GM and was trying to make a mark. Well he has....not always for the better. No more light meals for around the pool. No more early bird Buffett. Themed buffets (thought these died in the 1970s). Needless to say we did not eat at the buffet at all. The Chinese restaurant is excellent and consistent. The other consistent is the freezing cold temperatures in the hotel. The facilities and guest rooms make this place, especially the pools. For the cost it's average value for money.

    Tired - Really needs a complete revamp ”
    Whilst the room was booked at a good wet season rate I was disappointed with the tired feeling the place portrays. It appears to be all bells and whistles on the outside presentation but once inside it's tired and dated. The carpet is nearly threadbare in places in the casino and the food I ordered was disappointing. So spicy there was no taste and I left the dish almost untouched. The staff (one of at the bar) was busy making numerous cocktails from a receipe book so it was a waste of time trying to get his attention. I believe there are better more modern options available in Darwin

    Darwins hidden oasis”
    My only complaint is tidyness. There was two empty glasses at our doorstep on arrival and they were still there on our departure from the hotel the following afternoon. Also there was a hens group checked into the first lagoon room next to the beach during our stay and I would suggest a group such as that placed at the opposite end of the pool so that they are away from the rest of the people trying to enjoy their stay. Otherwise will definitely stay again

    Most enjoyable, We stayed in the older part of the hotel and my only negative comment is that the building is a bit outdated, and could do with a bit of an upgrade. Other than that i have no complaints. The staff were friendly, the restaurants and food selection was good, and overall the stay was good value for money.

    Skycity Darwin Review ”
    The front desk was great with a great welcome, very pleasant. We had an Ocean View Room which had a fantastic view. The room itself was a bit tired and could do with a refurbishment, having said that it was really clean. Breakfast at The Vue was really shocking, as even though it was meant to close at 10:30am, we arrived at 10am and there was a very limited amount of food, most dishes were finished and there were no refills, the staff was extremely unpleasant and would not even provide milk for the coffee. Very disappointing after the pleasant service at reception.
