I stayed at Smugglers for 2 weeks with a weekend at home in between for work. The customer service provided by Sandy was outstanding, she even emailed me a map of how to get to work from Smugglers. All my email correspondence was answered promptly and pleasantly. I found the units to be very clean and the my stay was... More

Stayed one night on business as all the other accommodation was booked out. Ended up that this was a much better choice! Quiet, clean and whilst it has been there for awhile it has been updated recently. Would be a great place to bring the family for a summer holiday.

Although there was no-one at Reception when we arrived, there was a friendly note, key and everything that we needed to know. My home is immaculate, so I have high expectations. Smugglers on the Beach exceeded our expectations. Clean, comfortable and well appointed. The BBQ area and pool were pristine and grounds well maintained. Free laundry usage with everything that...

We were travelling with 3 older children/ teenagers for a family holiday and really wanted enough space for them to be comfortable and happy. Lots of places are not designed for three kids, and we didn't want to spend a week cramped up with kids sleeping on folding beds in our room. We chose the three bedroom apartment which was... More

Clean, spacious and well fitted out apartments. Felt really comfortable here. Good quality furniture and backing onto the beach. Staff were very friendly and attentive. Quiet location which suited us.

Our room was lovely. Spacious, clean, contempory decor, open plan with a beautiful outlook onto the well landscaped pool. The staff were very friendly, polite and welcoming. The beach was only a 2 min walk from our door. I know my family and I will return to Smugglers on the Beach in the future. Thank you to everyone at 'Smugglers'... More

I was traveling to Coffs for a family wedding and even prior to my arrival I was most impressed with the outstanding service of the staff, special mention to Nissa. I was assisted with dinner venues, hair and makeup company's, room arrangements for family. On arrival the 2 bedroom spa apartment was spacious (huge) the outlook was gorgeous, everthing was...

We had to get a taxi to Jetty Beach knowing we would have a drink. $20 each way but safer. Takes 10 minutes. The place is only a stroll to the beach. Sapphire beach is walkable from your accommodation. Would suit older couples or families as it was so quiet.

We had a lovely short family break. We come down this way every year. This was our first time staying here but we will definitely be coming back. It was beautiful close to the beach & close to Coffs Harbour

We stayed for nights/5 days but realistically could have spent a couple of days here. There isn't a great deal to do in Coffs and this place is more basic than the 4.5 rating we read on line. Honestly it's more likely a 3, a little dated tbh but their are pluses? Staff are super lovely, the pool is heated... More
