8/10 Very Good

Karma seems to have very few staff however the breakfast choices & the burgers we had for lunch on our first day were awesome! The bar and restaurant staff didn’t seem to have a great deal of experience but they were helpful & friendly. The pool area and all the outside areas in general need some $$ spent to lift the standard. It’s quite scruffy & dirty. There are loud, squawking crows everywhere which are so annoying, I’m surprised no one has suggested a bounty! 😂 Our room was very basic but clean and had a very large en-suite.. Thankfully it wasn’t too hot as we had no A/C but the pedestal fan & ceiling fan did a great job. Location is good, walking distance to the “shopping mall” and The Basin which is spectacular especially for snorkeling. Also only a few steps away to grab “ around the island” explorer bus. We had a nice stay but it would be lovely to stay at Karma again once they clean it up a bit.

Will come back. Great breakfast , nice pool
Stayed in one of the Lake side premium rooms. Great view across the lake , Nice large room with King bed and clean and tidy. Deco is a little dated especially in the lesser rooms. Breakfast was great , full buffet cooked and good quality bacon, yum. Pool area nice , and so close to Thompson Bay shops and bars etc. Will come back.
Nice cool pool

4/10 Fair

The room advertised is not the room you get. There is no balcony or patio. They told me the patio was the walkway in front of our room. When I complained about the balcony/patio they offered to upgrade us but as the young man at reception told me that was never going to happen. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. The premises are very run down and in need of maintenance. Our room had holes in the ceiling , bathroom door with a broken lock that did not close and no soap and moisture lotion in the dispenser. No WI FI as advertised in room. Our vision of sitting on the balcony/patio reading a book and relaxing never happened ,and that was the idea of going to Rottnest. Young man at reception needs to be reminded that people like us pay his wages and to be careful that the client does not see him making fun of them.

Had a great experience
Stayed in a premium lakeside room. Air con was a god send, spesh combining it with the ceiling fan. Bed was fine as was the tv. Nice little complex really. Pool was good and the restaurant was excellent. Loved the included buffet breakfast. All the staff we encountered were pleasant. Everything could be slightly improved obviously but there were no real faults to “pick at”. Maybe it was a bit expensive? But then again Rottnest isn’t cheap so it’s really in line with everything else here. I was happy and I see no reason I’d not come back again to Karma Rottnest

Rottnest, wajemup bidi, is just a mini paradise, and staying at karma resort is lovely, with an all you can eat buffet breakfast, that keeps you going most of the day, and easy come and go set up, that is relaxed and enjoyable Highly recommend this place for an easy going relaxed holiday and with special little visitors (quokkas) ready to say hello when you open the door, what more could you ask for ♥️♥️♥️

6/10 Good

The best thing of this property is the Pub and the location. We stayed for 3 nights and it was ok. We had breakfast everyday and it was delicious. The staff at check in was not welcoming - when I gave my name for the booking the lady immediately said I have no reservation under your name she didn’t take some time to look further and she was not professional at all so we didn’t have the first best impression. The breakfast and pub staff were awesome specially Martha and Connor, super friendly and professional. Big kudos to them. At check out they tried to charge us for a consumption We never had and the lady at check out did not believe in my word and she wanted to charge me anyways - she was rude! When I asked for the signed check of course it was another person’s signature. It was very uncomfortable to be in that situation. Reception staff need more training when it comes to customer service.

Property was roomy and clean. View was really good. Bit too close to the hotel for us and we had to carry a twin pram up two flights of stairs but still a good stay.
