Don't have the money for an expensive holiday? This is the place. Mel and Kai are the friendliest hosts you'll find anywhere. The rooms are not 5 star but they are comfy, cleaner than a lot of 5 stars I've stayed at and close to the best parts of Coffs. Cheap eats nearby and great to have the little kitchen...

Hey there, and thank you. It is a great little spot here we’ve got across from the beach. For a top location we try and provide friendly yet affordable accommodation for everyone. We do understand economic times are tough and have decided to maintain our low prices for all to enjoy. Thanks again Mel

Needed a place to stay for one night as i was travelling with my teenage son and 2 other boys for school sport. Booked via Quickbeds what was advertised as a 2 bedroom Family Unit. This wasn't the case. It was a motel room with a double bed in it with a bedroom with 4 singles off it. I was...

Thankyou for posting this review, and a great hi to all from Mel at Hawaiian Sands. This review raises a some valid points, and I can promise I do not support false internet advertising.

On our entrance window, there is a quote "there are no strangers in this place, only friends we have never met" Unfortunately in this case, the guest did not come to us directly so we could not help him/her with his/her experience. We are onsite managers available 24/7, either via walking over to reception and ringing the bell, or giving...

Location is great. The room was riddled with cockroaches. The staff looked like they were drug affected and stared at my partner continously. Not a pleasant experience when you hear the staff yelling at each other to work first thing in the morning. Not worth the $60 a night.

At Hawaiian Sands we take great pride in ensuring that guests feel "comfortable" and of coarse “welcome”, and definitely not threatened in any way. As we are a family run business, and this is our home also we try to ensure a sense of security and safety for our visitors, as we would want to feel ourselves, staying away from...

Thanks for staying and taking the time to comment. I have to laugh about our walls being paper thin. We are not a motel made of cardboard. They are standard 100mm walls, sometimes sound carries easily. If there was no pressure or heat from the shower then something would of being wrong at that particular time. Only recently we had...
