We loved the palms next to our villa which was isolated from other villas for privacy. The Palms City Resort is conveniently located within walking distance close to restaurants, tourist attractions, Coles and transport. The reception staff were very helpful with inquires and a special mention for the cleaning staff who were thorough and friendly We will stay there again when visiting Darwin.

The units are comfortably nestled in tropical garden surrounds and although smallish, they are very clean and have very good facilities. Microwave, plates and cutlery etc. TV, fridge and Wifi of course and plenty of lovely hot water for after your daily swim. No complaints at all. Enjoyable stay and we will return.

The location, staff, and facilities were excellent. Nothing was too much trouble for the front desk staff. Car parking on site convenient to Supermarket. Pool, BBQ were all lovely and clean. The only improvement would be the housekeeping. They cleaned the rooms well but did not always replace soaps, detergent etc. You could always obtain these from front desk so wasn’t too inconvenient.
