Was so happy with my experience at Palm city! Helpful Down to earth staff, loved sitting amongst nature in our own personal garden spa and relaxing in our bungalow all whilst being right in the heart of town. Thanks to all the team at Palm city. A very memorable stay!!!

For every family out there traveling with children, I truly couldn't encourage you enough to stay with Palms City. The staff went above and beyond to help ensure my family enjoyed our stay. It's often hard traveling with a toddler (little people with big emotions!!) but our entire stay was nothing short of perfect. Beautiful resort, beautiful rooms and beautiful...

I have had the pleasure of staying at Palm City Resort on the Esplanade in Darwin City a number of times. I find the customer service outstanding, the rooms and villas are clean and tidy and have all the necessities. I particularly love the Spa Villas when I am looking for that little bit of romance. Everything I could want...

I've just come back from my third visit at Palms City Resort and I cannot speak more highly of both the hotel and staff, especially hotel manager Emma. My husband and I decided we wanted to have a mini getaway before our baby comes at the end of September and I can't think of anywhere else I'd rather stay. I've...

Stayed at Palms City Resort over the weekend and could not fault this place. I would recommend this little piece of tropical paradise to anyone. Staff were very friendly and helpful, rooms are fresh and clean, pool and gardens were lovely; also very convenient as walking distance to the restaurants and pubs. This place is even has a good little...

Cramped rooms, noisy fans, dark walkways and bloody noisy pretty well encapsulated our stay. Although we'd asked for a quiet room, and voiced our reservations about being placed near the pub, we were reassured we wouldn't hear the noise. It's a bloody pub playing loud music until 1am, how do they think it won't be noisy? Even earplugs didn't cut...

Best thing about this resort is the location. Easy walking access to the city, Explorer bus, harbour, Darwin waterfront and Coles. We had a standard motel room on the ground floor which was average. Noisy air-con. I would suggest upgrading as it would be worth it. The gardens were lovely and the staff helpful. Breakfast in the dining area wasn't...

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