Stayed here for my 50th birthday weekend. The position of the resort is great. Right on the beach and close to the city centre of Coffs Harbour. The Bures are somewhat outdated. They could do with an upgrade. Old dryer in the laundry cubicle. Did not eat at the Resort, but we did look at the dinner menu and thought... More

Booked room on bookings.com & discovered kingsize bed instead of twins. Staff moved us to another room which was definately an upgrade. They were so considerate considering it may have been my error. The free breakfast was amazing. Rooms so clean, bed comfy, water hot. Beach view terrific to enjoy breakfast. Will definately stay there again.

Lovely property with SO much potential BUT poor restaurant, MILES from car park to room & BIG cost for wifi. Restaurant couldn't produce steak that was med - came out charred on outside& raw inside. It was a struggle for staff to figure out how to help me get "mobile office" from car in carpark to room - business trip.... More

The resort in its heyday would have been spectacular but now it is just really tired and worn. The best example is the putt putt course- it is one kid tripping on a rusty nail away from a disaster. The rooms and spas are spacious. However the spa has a glass ceiling that is meant to be romantic but instead... More

We only stayed one night, but you could easily spend a week here enjoying all there is to see and do in Coff's Harbour as well. The resort is HUGE, and our apartment was simply wonderful. We had a 2 bedroom apartment (with our 2 daughters), with spa in the parent's ensuite, the girls had their own bathroom, and there... More

My husband and I chose Aanuka as our wedding venue this July 2015. The service on the night was 100%, we did not have to question or think about a thing on the night, everything was taken care of, even things we didn't think of ourselves! In the lead up to the day we had a wedding coordinator supplied by... More

We booked the three room villa which is only available from the breakfree website. It was huge and really well located. Room facilities are getting run down and DVD player scratched our DVD but resort is in a really lovely spot and pool and cafe are lovely. We booked a massage which was just heavenly after our nine hour drive... More
