Weekend getaway

My husband and I honeymooned at Aanuka in 1988. We were keen to see what had changed and what stayed the same. While we did enjoy our stay greatly, enjoying the location right on the beach, the friendly staff and a wonderful buffet breakfast thanks to Mia, the landscaping was in need of some upgrading. The pavers and pool still looked as it did in 1988. While the bungalow was lovely the air conditioner kept playing up and we had to call some one to look at it twice where really it should be just replaced. We did have a lovely time away but the resort does need some money spent on it to keep it looking it's best.

Family of four

This is the second time we stayed here. Last time was 6 years ago. We stayed in 106 two bedrooms villa. It must be one of the lucky few that was restored bc everything was in good condition. Only thing was the main ensuite shower temp doesn't work properly so we all had to take turn in the other bathroom.

A lovely resort

I enjoyed my two nights here. it is not crammed in with lots of other resorts, you have a private access to the beach and the resort had nice facilities. Wouldn't rave about the restaurant for either dinner or breakfast although the view is lovely. They have an outdoor pool which is great and a heated pool but that needs upgrading.My villa was spacious, clean and had a huge bathroom with large spa bath. If you are older then would have to say be careful as the shower is over the bath and getting in and out of the bath is a little difficult.The grounds are immaculate and alot of greenery around each villa to give privacy.

Not Good Experience.

The room smelled of damp. The wardrobe door was stuck and almost impossible to open. The mattress on the bed was slumped and you could feel the springs through it. I had booked and paid for two nights, I left after the first night. No refund available as I had aggreed to a no cancellation booking. This is the worst place I have stayed. I would definitely not recomend this tired resort.

oh dear

I was very disappointed because the staff failed to identify simple directions to be given to me the visitor. How far things were, where steps are to negotiate baggage were not considered. The room while clean, had ripped screens. I managed to get bitten and the rash just left me last week. I would not stay there again nor recommend.

Fantastic wedding venue

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights while attending a wedding there. Love the lush tropical grounds and the pool is beautiful. Clean rooms and a massive spa in the bure was well worth the extra money. Bed was comfy and the room was spacious and modern.

Loved our stay

We stayed in a spa bure and absolutely loved it. The Bure was spacious, modern, well equipped and clean. We were visiting Coffs harbour for the WRC (World Rally Championships) so didn't get to spend a lot of time at the resort. We had a quick walk around the resort one morning and the pools look fantastic. We loved the buffet breakfast, overlooking the beach. Will be back again.

bures not baby friendly however great staff

We booked a 3 night stay in a paradise spa bure after phoning reservations and being assured they are suitable for guests with a 7 month old.... They are not!!!!! The main problem is that in the bedroom there is a spa with a large glass ceiling. The way the bures are laid out is that there are 4 connected back to back by their glass ceilings. This means that any time a guest in any of the other 3 bures turns their light on your room is lit up like you have a light on. Adjoining guests were enjoying a late night spa and we had to endure our baby crying unable to sleep in the light. Moving his cot into the lounge area did not help. Also any time an adjoining guest used their bathroom in the night it again lit up our room and again our baby woke and cried ... therefore we got no sleep on our first night stay after a long drive from Sydney. i must point out our baby usually sleeps through the night. This problem would be easily solved by installation of curtains between the bed and spa as there is the space to do so. Angry during the night I called reception to try to solve the light issue. They attempted to find candles for our spa-ing neighbours but this didnt solve the issue of late night loo visits by neighbours. The light is that bad I cant imagine we are the first guests to complain about it. The next morning exhausted after breakfast we again spoke to reception about the issues. We were informed none of the bures have curtains in the bedroom spa area which I think is just silly. We were as a result of the bad advice given by reservations upgraded to a 2 bed villa which resolved our light issue and led to an enjoyable stay at a beautiful resort. We were very pleased with the customer service of both the night manager and reception staff. Pools were lovely. Our son enjoyed a splash in the indoor heated one. I had a great massagw/facial at the dayspa and the breakfast buffet was delicious.

Dont eat there

The restaurant is very overpriced and didn't live up to the price - mains were $35+ and the meal I had was not good (and it was their special for the night). And at breakfast time, the buffet looked impressive, but half of the hot buffet items were almost cold, and the scrambled egg was really sloppy (i.e. lots of liquid in it). But the bed in the room was comfortable.
