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

Great looking self contained apartments and beautiful resort. Lots to do and lots to see. Down the road from the big banana and short drive to the shops and harbour. Would recommend going to this resort very peaceful.

We stayed here for 1 night. The apartment was spacious and well equipped. We were grateful to be able to do some washing after travelling around for a week!! Our apartment was warm upstairs but the heater downstairs wasn't enough to warm up the area. The resort was very nice with lovely pools to suit everyone. We did find the... More

We have stayed at Aanuka a few times now over the last 20+ years and what draws us there is primarily the secluded location right on Diggers Beach. The pretty rainforest landscaping with tweeting birds is instantly relaxing and the beach is very picturesque.There is an inside heated pool ideal for the cooler months and a lovely outdoor pool area...

We spent a week with our 5 & 7 year old kids and wanted to extend our stay futher. I personally found the harsh reviews here to be quite dramatic and exaggerated.

We booked this hotel/resort as a Mantra Resort so it was a little confusing when approaching, but worth it. Our Villa was a little tired but huge with a separate bedroom, open plan lounge, kitchen, dining. With a large bathroom/toilet and a further separate spa bath with a glass ceiling it was terrific. If we had any complaints it was... More

We should have been warned the moment we opened the door of unit 76. A distinctive smell of mould greeted us as we brought our bags in, though initially we put it down the fact that the unit probably just needed a little airing. So we opened all doors and windows and ran all exhaust fans and the atmosphere in... More
