We stayed ror 3 nights and found the staff to be friendly and accommodating. We were given our requested unit as we really enjoy peace and quiet. Our TV had an issue which was resolved quickly. The unit was modern, well equipped and clean, but not to my wifes standards lol...but all in all was pretty good. We liked the rules that were fair and resonable especially concerning courtesy to other guests. Surfers Central was only a couple of minutes walk across the bridge into town. We like the location as it is so close but away from the nightly noise. We feel happy with our stay and will book here again as it is good value.

We checked in on a Sunday night and the first thing we noticed was that a really bad smell was coming from the sofa bed. It looked dirty and I assumed something had been spilled on it and gone off. First thing next morning I had the manager inspect it and he arranged for it to be steam cleaned that day. However by evening the smell was just as bad so I moved the sofa away from the wall and discovered a mouldy substance (see photo) on the carpet. So I got the manager back again to see it and he rang the steam cleaner again who came back next day to clean the carpet this time. After that the smell had improved a little but still it was very noticeable and they left us some deodorizer.
The managers were helpful and promptly arranged for the steam cleaning and I thank them for that. But oh my, once carpet gets wet and goes mouldy that's pretty much it. The smell never goes away even with steam cleaning and deodorizer. I wouldn't recommend booking into this particular ground floor apartment until the carpet gets changed and the wall checked for leakage.

Karana Palms is a great place to stay. Close to beaches, shopping etc. Units are very comfortable, clean and quiet, well equipped kitchen if you want to cook or just walk to a variety of cafes and restaurants, very easy,and relaxing if you want to just sit and read.
Staff friendly and helpful. Very good value for money.

Room Tip: Bedrooms were at the rear, so very quiet.

A good place for families or couples staying for more than 3 days as the amenities are available just across the so called "private island" Recommended to those who are driving as they have their own parking lot especially for guests. Great price for 5 day stay with kitchenette and fully equipped plates and cutlery. Would definitely come back and stay here again if I'm dropping by Goldcoast.
