If you want a well appointed, functional unit to stay in, then this is it. Clean, comfortable and above all, quiet. It is extremely practical for people that want to have everything self contained. We spent 7 nights and we were very impressed with the fact that you could do everything from cooking to washing and drying your clothes. It...

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...

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...

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...

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.

Ive never written a review before but since this place was so horrible I thought it would be good to let others know that it is nothing like you see on their website - 2 star at the most. The room was completely run down. It was also dirty, especially in the bathroom/toilet. If your after comfort and somewhere clean...
