Woke up and felt like we had been driving at Bathurst!!! The traffic overnight was horrendous. Mick was up and out walking by 6. We spent the day at the wave pool in Darwin & the kids had a ball.

    View of a brick wall...

    I stayed for 3 nights and was given a room far from reception and up a flight of stairs (pain in the butt with all of my luggage). I had a view of a brick wall that was partially obscured by a linen trolly that was permanently parked outside of my door. Wifi ($7 for 2 hours) did not reach my room. The staff were fairly pleasant and it was close to everything while being in on a fairly quiet street. I was there in the low season for $99 per night. The day I left the price shot up to $240/night -- I would have been OUTRAGED to pay that much for the rather shabby room. Okay but not great.

    Great Stuff

    We had a great four night stay in this resort which naturally was equipped with a pool and a lot of individual bungalows (duplex). The only downside if you could call it that was that the only meals available there was breakfast, however, it was within easy striking distance to many more eateries including a hotel restaurant only 50mtrs away.
    Situated right on the esplanade it was only a few minutes walk to the city center and cheaper takeaway food if required. We found that four days in Darwin was not enough although we did almost daily tours the first of which was a harbor cruise on the day of arrival. A wonderful experience but i have made note not to do any tours on the day of arrival as we were very short on time when we got there.
    The Staff in the hotel were extremely nice and helpful and i would heartily recommend this resort to anyone wanting to stay a while in Darwin.
