Desert Palms Alice Springs

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This place was not far from the airport. It is located near a town. The staff was helpful and it is close to the Kangaroo Sanctuary. A lot of bus tours will pick up at this location which is helpful for other tours you might want to go on. The rooms were pretty generic, but if you are staying in the outback, you will be away from the hotel most of the time. There is a little bowling club/ golf course nearby that sells food and snacks as well.

A lovely place that had a real holiday feel. Pool was nice, BBQ areas were great, parking was easy at the front of our villa and the kitchen was well equipped. There was enough room for 4 of us and the beds were comfortable.

Great place to stay, we got a cabin for a family of 5, it was neat and clean, close to the pool. Pool area was clean. Rooms reasonable no need to complain it did the job . Highly recommend. Staff friendly. Lovely place to stay

We thought Desert Palms was fantastic. It was clean and comfortable and staff were friendly and accommodating. A few little gifts and groceries in the reception area. Very reasonably priced for family of 4 at $155.

Stayed here for 2 nights in Sept 2017 with the main aim of the trip to travel to Uluru. The hotel offers a wide range of amenities such as pool, laundry, BBQ, shop etc. The rooms were nice and clean with kitchen and bathroom. The beds were comfortable and the aircon was cold. Overall clean and in a good quiet location. Gates are locked at night so very safe. Would recommend someone to stay here if they were traveling to Alice Springs, very reasonably priced at approx $150 for the room per night and sleeps up to 4.

This was our eleventh stop of our Australia around trip. We stayed here three nights. Nice self contained Villas with beautiful palm tree surroundings. Walking distance to town. Pippa the receptionist on duty is a gem. Thanks for looking after us. Definitely coming back to stay. Cheers.

Really enjoyed our stay here. Great facilities. Clean and tidy rooms. Loved the little kitchenette which had all we needed to cook a meal for the family. A shame we couldn't turn the outside light off is all... even with the curtain closed at night it was really bright. Highly recommend!

We stayed one night in this hotel and it was really perfect, the location, the room large and very pleasant, heated swimmingpool. 10 minutes from the airport. Parking just outside of the hotel. Very easy to find.

We are staying a week here and have had the best time. Neat and clean. Great laundry facilities. Pool is excellent and very good for younger children with a big island in the middle. Close to all facilities.

I first stayed here approximately 5 years ago and did not hesitate to come back again. Gladly the Desert Palms did not let me down - still very comfortable, clean and presentable individual chalets with enough creature comforts for the four days we were here. The beds and bed linen were very good, outside balcony more than sufficient, the kitchenette merely a microwave kettle and fridge but enough to survive. The pool is clean and well presented and the laundry very handy. I will be back again one day
