The windows were locked open. Had to call reception who sent maintenance. They didn't have a key for the windows. Once the window was unlocked, maintenance locked the windows closed. The double/queen bed was two single beds put together with sheets holding them together. There was no bin in the room. The bathroom is in massive need of an update.... More

Arrival was at night and after receiving a sketchy map from reception we wandered around in freezing cold (it was 10degrees) and dark trying to find our villa. The lighting is terrible. Although there has been a recent attempt to upgrade, there are so many obvious aspects that look 20-30 years old. There was no room service so we had... More

We stayed here overnight and on the plus side the rain forest gardens were well maintained and the beachfront beautiful however the room was so outdated , tiny and dark at the back of the rainforest I couldn't say we enjoyed it and the mozzies were huge ! Maybe some better lighting and some mosquito coils could have lightened things... More

An interesting place with lots of different things to do to couples, families, business travelers, solos etc. The resort is quite big and there's lot of vilas, but I didn't feel it was too groudy. It was nice and relaxed.

We stayed for a week in one of the villas. On the plus side, I can say it was quite spacious and, even it was very close to other vilas, we didn´t hear any noise. There was always parking space available and it had washing machine and dryer. The beach was very close. On the other side, it had only... More

We enjoyed our stay at the resort. Our room had a foldaway luggage rack however once we used it, we found that there was not a place in the room to put it. Also, our room was a long way from the restaurant and on one occasion it was raining as we made our way to dinner and we got... More

Just returned to Melbourne from a few days on North Coast - as we approached busy unfamiliar (to us) Coffs Harbour we knew just the place to head to, as we had spent a holiday at Aanuka some 25 years ago.

I have travelled to many places with my large family of 7. I guess with only 2 nights we did not have much time to experience all the facilities at Aanuka, Coffs Harbour. My main concern was our room which catered for 7 actually had a separate room not interconnecting with the main resort room. You had to exit your... More

The only downside is not being able to park outside your room if carrying several bags or business equipment, or the lack of mini bar/room service if not wanting to venture out. Location is stunning and breakfast from 7am (takeaway coffee from 6.30am) allows for a quick beach run before work starts which is lovely! Spa in bathroom at end... More

Cabin was lovely - spa bath was excellent, not suitable for people with mobility issues. the beach and fire pits at the front of the restaurant were lovely, staff were very nice. parking was no where near cabins so that was a bit of a downer.
