Best pools to relax by
Loved my stay here, cheap drinks in the casino, comfortable beds, friendly staff, the most amazing lagoon pool and a great infinity pool, although they need to insure the backpackers don't just walk in off the street and use the pool and take sun loungers from hotel guests

Neat place, Pleasant Surroundings!
Reasonably decent place to stay for a short trip to Darwin. Enjoyed the restaurants in the hotel too. The hotel surroundings was very pleasant, with the beachfront providing a nice place for an evening walk & to enjoy the sunset. The reception counter and service staff were very friendly and helpful. One negative experience though: was in a room with an enjoining door, and it was very unpleasant and annoying when the next door occupants were fighting and throwing things about!
