We really enjoyed our stay at the Desert Palms Alice Springs and would highly recommend it to anyone wishing to stay in Alice. The location is a 20 minute walk from the town centre, and a 10 minute walk in the other direction to Lasseters Casino, which has a number of Restaurants to choose from. The Goat and Bucket was very good! The Salt & Pepper Squid was immense! The pool at Desert Palms was a welcome respite from the dreaded flies! We took the trip to the Kangaroo Sanctuary in the afternoon/early evening and the pick up point was next door, so was easy to walk to. I would definitely stay here again and hope we can visit sometime in the very near future.

I liked the bungalow style accommodation However, this would be improved with a ceiling fan for air circulation. The added benefit is I and all your guests would rely on air conditioning less - which probably is NOT run on renewable energy - thus reducing your costs and carbon emissions. This could be a nice selling feature!

The property has a bus stop at the front gate to travel into Alice springs. Is close to restaurants and entertainment golf club and botanical gardens. The pool was closed due to maintenance and we were aable to use the next resorts pool with out any hassles. I would recommend dessert palms as as a base to explore from.
