Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Enjoyed our stay at Smugglers, wonderful facilities. Beach straight in front of property. Excellent walks along Solitary Island Way, to Charlesworth Bay, and Diggers Beach with stunning scenery. Apartments well equipped with everything you could need. Clean and comfortable beds and several pillow options. Staff are always there if needed, and are so friendly and helpful.

Great place to stay away from the hustle & bustle of Coffs Harbour. Very clean, large rooms & great pool environment. Tried my hand at pickleball and it was fun. The large balcony was great to chill over a drink and nibbles. The accommodation is situated a stones throw away from the beach which is sandy and clean. Would stay again.

The manager Sue greeted us my family and me with warmth and kindness. She was very professional, and when we locked our room by mistake, she was very very helpful. Smugglers is very unassuming from the outside but when you get inside, they have absolutely beautiful rooms. The pool is very beautiful and fantastic and we really enjoyed our stay.

We had a cancel a previous reservation, and Smugglers on the Beach saved the day with their wonderful room in short notice. They were very accommodating and turned a very stressful day into a peaceful night. Late check-in was very easy and they walked me through the entire process on the phone with patience and kindness. The room and property were lovely and we had a great time. Recommend for sure. The location is hard to beat.

On arrival registration was easy and fast. The unit was bright and spacious, clean and very quiet. The unit was cool considering the extreme heat from outside. Bed and pillows were very comfortable. Kitchen was well stocked and had all the necessary items you needed. Would recommend staying at Smugglers on the beach.

Definitely recommend this hidden gem. Had everything we needed. Staff were very friendly and welcoming throughout our whole stay and the rooms were spacious and so clean. Comfy beds and everything a family with kids need. Nice walk to the beach which is pretty much next door. You can hear the waves and its so relaxing. Definitely will come here again next time we are in Coffs Harbour. Cannot fault it at all. The facilities were great and the pool temp was perfect

Very helpful and friendly staff. The accommodation was extremely comfortable. The room was recently renovated and was great value for money. Well-decked-out accommodation with everything you need for an extended stay. We would happily stay again.
