Located right on the top end of the top end, sky city was exactly what I needed in Darwin. I had just come off a two week bus tour from Alice Springs up to Darwin and stayed in mixed level accommodation along the way, getting to sky city was like a breath of fresh air. Located about a five minute can ride from the centre of Darwin, we had booked a room in the lagoon resort section of the resort and it was excellent from the beginning onwards, the rooms were spotless clean and the amenities were fantastic, large comfortable bed, shower and large bath (which I could stretch out in and I'm 6'2") excellent spacious balcony overlooking the lagoon pool and with views of the ocean. The room service was prompt when ordered and any issues we had, ie the batteries were dead in our TV controller, were fixed right away. The resort itself has several restaurants, however as we were only here for two nights we chose the Italian and it didn't disappoint. The casino floor itself is small by comparison to what I am used to from Sydney / Melbourne etc, and the selection of games is a little limited bit you could pass an hour or two in there if you wished. Breakfast if it's not included in your room package is quite expensive at 29 dollars pp for a buffet, food was of a good standard, however one criticism I would have is after paying the 29 dollars they still expect you to pay for a freshly brewed barista coffee, or use the coffee vending machine instead which tasted terrible, but if that's all I can criticise then it's not doing too bad. All in all a great way to end my holiday, I'll be back for sure
