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

My Sister in Law and I stayed in one of the Dolphin Resort cabins. I chose Dolphin as it advertised a disabled friendly 2 bedroom cabin. We were only staying one night as we were travelling from Sydney to Brisbane. I booked and paid online and was told we would be met by the owner on arrival. As promised we... 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.

We do appreciate all reviews however we do request that they are completed truthfully and accurately. Just some background, these particular Corporate guests were granted an extended check out of which they over stayed an extra 2hrs not 15min. Charge was $15 per villa per hour, a total of $60 this was a Sunday. Part of this group stayed in... More

I have just spent 8 relaxing days at my private 2-bedroom bungalow at Dolphin Sands, Coff’s Harbour. This property represents excellent value at approximately $100 per night during the winter season. I had fabulous sunny weather for the whole time at the end of August, which made sitting out on the private covered porch a nice treat. This property is... More

Dolphin Sands cabins are a good size (although only 2 of us). Cabin was reasonably clean - nothing to complain about, but not spotless. It could be freshened up with a coat of paint and a few repairs to water damaged sections in the bathroom. Quiet spot away from heavy traffic, but a bit of a walk to shops and... More

Nothing to write home about, our villa was clean and tidy. They just need an upgrade or freshen up, especially the bathroom. Owner very informative and knowledgeable on check in which was much appreciated. A little way out from the main shopping area but the weather was good for a walk to breakfast and dinner spots.
