Bali-esque beach resort”

Leafy, well-kept grounds, friendly staff, beach access

The Breakfree Aanuka is a lovely 'family friendly' resort at Diggers Beach just north of Coffs Harbour. The good thing about a family friendly resort is that as a couple, we didn't really have to deal with lots of screaming kids annoying us in the pool as the choice for most families was to take the rugrats to the specific kid's water play area set far away from the lagoon pool. The resort has been undergoing a renovation and our bure was obviously one of the ones already completed. The style is 1990's 4 star hotel, with an attempt at a beach vibe. The kitchenette is small, but has everything you'd need for a short stay. The internet access is 'pay by use' which is disappointing. We had dinner in the restaurant Finz by the Beach which was lovely. The staff accommodated our request for a table at the window and were very friendly and helpful. The only downside was that my medium rare steak was well-done, the quality of the food was high and presentation was top-notch. The beach access was easy and the grounds were clearly marked with maps at each intersection of paths. The parking was easy and secure. We had a blast there. Would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing beach break away from the main tourist area.

great location, wonderful surroundings”

great location with its own beach, relaxed tropical surroundings, good service

Aanuka Resort is a worthwhile stay, situated on the beach at Coff's Harbour,it has wonderful views of the water from the dining area,a very relaxed atmosphere set amongst lush, tropical gardens with facilities catering for the entire family. The resort is spread out on a very large property with covered walkways, tennis courts, gym, separate pools for both children and adults, an aviary, bar and restaurant and convention centre. It is only 10 minutes drive from the town centre and across the road from the 'Big Banana'. The rooms have been revamped; however the bathroom is still a little datedand and needs a new shower head.

return visit”

We stay here when visiting family in Coffs Harbour. The two room units are ideal for us and the kitchens usually functional with a full size fridge. The water features like pools and spas are ideal for family and so close to Diggers beach which is excellent for walking and swimming. Casay's restaurant serves quality meals and we have had many enjoyable lunches and dinners there with family members. Staff are friendly and helpful so we always feel at home.

Always love Aanuka. The view, the meals are wonderful and the staff lovely. ”

We first stayed at Aanuka when my son was about three. He is now 30. We holidayed there often when he was a child and revisited it with my son and his future bride when she thought she would like a tropical wedding near the beach. We suggested Aanuka and immediately we took her there she was excited. Wedding there was wonderful. U’ve had a busy and sad time recently. First in hospital and then back to Sydney from port Mac immediately after leaving hospital - needed to be with my 95 year old Mum in her last days. Consequently we missed the opportunstely to celebrate our 45 wedding anniversary as she passed away on the date of our anniversary.- thus our evening at Aanuka. Thank you we had a lovely shortbreak.

Stsy at Breakfree Aanuka Resort was very relaxing. Heaps to do, kept the children very entertained from surfing, tennis, mini golf, 4 pools with a mini slide, beach volleyball. Staff very friendly.

Relax in simple paradise ”

Aanuka is a gorgeous little resort, stayed for a night, the beach is a very short walk and ammenities available are awesome, they have a cute little cafe on the resort that you can see views of the beach from, if you are going in the winter the have outdoor seating with a wood fire to keep you warm and toasty hot choc goes perfectly. They only down side is that the reception on resort is very bad, so you have to get wifi if essential, but I’d recommend not to and enjoy the views and nature your stay.

buffet breakfast, spacious room

we reached coffs harbour after the sun had set. the roads leading to the hotel did not have streetlights and it was a little scary making our ways. for us we drove, so there was the car's headlights and gps to navigate ard. the resort is a pretty big resort. staff was friendly and she assigned a room to us right at the other end of the resort. it was really secluded i felt uneasy. room & toilet was big compared to other hotels i had stayed during the trip. aside from me being a scaredycat, everything else was ok. the breakfast buffet spread is pretty decent too.

Direct access to beach, nice gardens, friendly staff

Too short! had a very relaxing stay at the Aanuka. Found a huntsmen spider in my room which woke me up at 6am. When I checked out I told the manager of the hotel and he said I could have called reception and they would have come and caught the spider and taken it outside - i'll remember that for next time I stay! The breakfast was amazing - so much variety! Would definitely stay again.

The unit was close to everything yet quiet, private; open plan , comfortable king bed and spa in bathroom with glass rooftop - just fantastic. Bar and resturant over resort beach, beautiful; food lovely and beer cold! All staff fantastic, could not praise Aanuka enough.

Great location, super convenient to Coffs and its attractions. Great setting, pool area and gardens are beautiful. Rooms were tidy, spacious and comfortable. Some of the decor is a little dated but all of the fittings and furnishings were functional and comfy. We stayed in a two bedroom villa. Only bad impression was the smell when we first walked in. Not sure if it was a dodgy smelling cleaning product or something else.

Lovely beach ”

comfortable room

i wanted to stay at a place on the beach away from the town. aanuka more than met my expectations in this regard. it was right on a little secluded beach. i walked around the resort and it certainly did have that tropical resort feel as advertised. the restaurant and pool area had a very relaxing atmosphere. the bure was comfortable and well furnished but given its set up as a little unit, i would have liked a stove top, instead it only had a small electric frying pan. there was also a strange smell when i first walked in, possible some sort of deodorizer, but not pleasant at all. i arrived late evening and, as the rooms are quite a way from the carpark, i was helped to my room with the luggage. the morning i left, however, the staff were not so friendly so i called reception for help or an umbrella but was told that they did not provide porter service. they also advertise that they have wireless internet. i could not connect to it at all and was given a very weak excuse as to why not. i eventually used their internet kiosk at $5 for ½ hour on a very slow connection.
