This is the third time I have stayed and the location is very handy to the government departments and biusiness centre in Darwin. The bungalows are very comfortable and the pool is very welcome! The staff are friendly, and the ability to do laundry in the coin operated machines is good. I will be back.

Room average, but clean, aircon didn't work the best, staff friendly. Kids weren't allowed to jump in the pool. Very close to all shops, all walking distance. Small...

We stayed here on two separate occasions. Both times the villas were delightful - clean and comfortable. It was lovely to have a private balcony. The villas are set amongst lovely tropical plants and palms. The resort is situated by the waterfront and is not too far from the centre of town. The breakfast menu is sufficiently varied and hot...

Stayed in one of the bungalows for three night over Xmas, along with other family members. The room itself was modern but was absolutely tiny. You couldn't swing a cat! It was nice to have the balcony though and the pool area was nice and the other guests very friendly! Having the electric BBQ was a bonus too. My only...

Good in-room facilities with tea, coffee, kettle and fridge, air-con, plenty of cupboard space and nice big bathroom. Lovely pool area with plenty of lounge chairs and bbq...

Not your standard luxury hotel. But a very nice one at the end of the esplanade. Rooms adequate and clean. Cool once the cooler is working. Cozy pool area. And close to restaurants. Parking okay, but a bit crowded for our 2 vans. (small group of us)

We stayed 6 nights. Our room was very clean and comfortable. Had everything we needed. Staff were great, nothing was a problem. Breakfast was a good price and was delicious. . We ate their each morning. The lush tropical gardens were lovely and in the centre was the pool which is where we spent many hours and meet some life...

“villa bungalow”

“Book a bungalow. Think there are 3 different sizes but we found the small one is more than adequate for a short stay.”

“I would certainly book a bungalow rather than a standard room. Well worth the difference in price. Near the pool is a good position.”
