We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom apartments with the swim up balcony. The rooms were very good and met all our needs. The pool is great although we didnt get a chance to use it as it was too cold. We were travelling with a young child and requested a cot. We were told there was a $20... More

The pool was my main reason for booking this resort, and is probably the only reason I would try this hotel again (although probably in the warmer seasons) it is massive!!

We spent 2 nights in this resort, occupying 2 rooms. The environment is pleasant but one could expect more from a resort in this range price. It's a very commercial and busy resort so do not expect personalized and attentive service.

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback on your stay. It is regrettable that as serviced apartments, the level of service was not as you had expected. We do of course at all time strive to deliver a level of service above and beyond what is commensurate with our 4 ½ star serviced apartment standards. More

We recently stayed at Oaks Pacific resort with our family. In a lagoon 2 bedroom apartment. We enjoyed the beautiful lagoon pool, restaurant and day spa. Great location, close to shops. It's a pity our stay was not longer. We will be staying again. Perhaps in a swim up lagoon pool room.

We stayed there for a night on our way to Coffs Harbour. The room was very nice, neat and had everything available. The pool was very nice, however we didn't get a chance to use it. The staff at reception was very friendly. I would have given it 5 stars if they had WiFi available in rooms.

Oaks Pacific Blue is a one-storey property that has all the facilities you can expect in a serviced apartment complex. The rooms were pretty clean, and had everything that we needed for our stay, and there were no complaints about the furnishings.
