    Good 6.0
    Bungalow in downtown Darwin
    We stayed in a bungalow by the pool. The bedroom did not have a lot of space for luggage due to a chair, a desk, a cabinet, and a dresser that took up most of the space around the bed. The bed was big and comfortable. The bathroom was small but functional.

    Very nice place on the water.
    We loved our stay, very nice bungalow. Would’ve loved for the spa to have been heated but other than that we had a great time.

    Pleasant stay at the Palms City Resort
    For a very reasonable price the Palms was an oasis in the middle of the city and close to all of the action. The pool was the center of all activity inside the hotel grounds. The staff were all friendly and helpful. Taxis were readily available, although many places were within walking distance. My garden bungalow room was small, but was well appointed with sink, fridge, television, comfortable bed and a small front porch. Breakfast was decent, but at extra cost. I would stay again if I return to Darwin.
