We just recently spent some time at Coffs Harbour and chose the Dolphin Sands as our accommodation. There were 7 of us (4 adults and 3 children) and the villa we stayed in had plenty of room for all of us. It was clean, cosy and affordable. And its proximity to the beach and places to eat was ideal. We... More

We booked for three days and have to cut short our stay due to non working wi fi internet. My kids needed very badly to submit their uni assignment. No top up of tea coffee and no replacement of wet towels despite wet weather and no drier.

This was a very pleasant surprise. A two bedroom chalet which was surprisingly spacious. It's in a small complex of seven chalets, a short walk from the beach. The chalet was equipped with everything we needed, and there was a laundry on site. Staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable about things to do and places to see. Wished we'd had... More

Great friendly service was provided. We were greeted by the owners and they were more than happy to assist in our needs. We booked the accessible cabin and my mother who is extremely fussy could not stop saying how great the place was. As a person with limited movement she found the bathroom fantastic, it was not slippery (her greatest... More

A friend and I stayed at dolphin sands for a weeks holiday, upon arrival the owners were very helpful and assisted us with activities to participate in during our stay. The cabins were fresh, clean and in a great location. The owners were very generous and allowed us a slightly later checkout so we were comfortable until our flight. I... More

My wife and I holidayed at dolphinsandscabins in Coffs Harbour for one week in early march. We found the units to be modern spacious and well appointed. We were happy with the location too it was in walking to the beach and the harbour. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay again.
