Deceptively beautiful inside. Well laid out plan inside the units and kept very clean. We spent 6 nights there and the owners were only too happy to help us with any (and all) questions and requests. Lovely, clean self contained unit and facility as a whole. Would we go back there ??? Most definitely - Walking distance to the shops and beach and only a short drive to the theme parks, along with the great service made for a wonderful holiday. Highly recommended.

We keep coming back to Karana Palms. This is our third visit to this Resort. The Management are great, nothing is too much trouble. We had lots of help booking tours and tickets to attractions. Rooms clean and quiet. Kids love the pool area. A perfect holiday. Thank you.

Spent a week here and had an overall very good experience. Went with a friend, he slept on the fold out couch and I took the bed which was great. No major problems at all, it is a self service apartment, so once you've run out of whatever they've provided you, you must purchase more (fair enough, $65 a night is nothing!).

The only downside was the cleanliness, there was someone else's hair everywhere (shower, sink, in the bedroom) and we had an ant problem in the kitchen, but it didn't bother us too much.

Foxtel had all the channels we wanted to watch, which was great. The place also has indoor car parking provided free of charge which was a great place to put our rental car.

Literally a 2 minute walk to the middle of surfers which was awesome. Would definitely stay here again.

Convenient, quiet, clean, well equipped, apartment, sunny, with big balcony. With a pool/barbecue and secure underground parking,and VERY convenient. It really is an easy walk across the bridge to the main drag of Surfers and beach, and the supermarket is even closer. And did I mention quiet? It is tucked away on an island and very picturesque. With friendly, prompt service, we could not fault it. We have to say we read some of the early reviews after we had booked. No, you dont have to pay for a second toilet roll!! Crazy.

Room Tip: No lift so we asked for the first 2 floors.

After staying at this place last September with my husband. I decided to again stay here with my sister and niece during the April school holidays. Rooms very clean and well equipped with all we needed. Kitchen with enough cooking pans and crockery etc. 7 min walk to supermarket and main bus stop. 10 min walk to main shop strip. Quiet location out of the busy high rises. Evelyn and rob the managers very friendly and helpful. Lovely pool and garden area. Price of rooms very reasonable. I will definitely book to stay here on my next trip to the Gold Coast.

Thank you Evelyn & Rob for making our stay so enjoyable. The room was very clean & tidy and had everything we needed. It was great we didn't even need to hire a car the resort is so close to everything. We will be back and also be telling everyone what a lovely little resort you have.
