We were visiting friends and stayed one night at the Rumba. We received a text enroute to say our room was ready which I thought was a nice touch. The staff at reception were very professional and friendly. Free uncover parking. We had a one bed spa room with partial sea view. Balcony was a good size, open living and...

A great place to stay so close to restaurants and beaches. The pools are excellent however during our stay the Jacuzzi was closed for a day while poo floated around in it eek!!! I do think it is overpriced! For five stars I expect a little more than what Rumba has to offer.

We spent three lovely nights at the Rumba and found everything was absolutely perfect except for the pillows (they are such a personal preference). The rooms were clean, well appointed and spacious. The service by the staff was above and beyond and the bar served awesome drinks. The pools were clean, and overall area was well cared for. The resort...

We stayed in a beachview (worth the extra!) 3 bedroom apartment. The location and the apartment was exceptional. Right across the road from the beach, walking distance to the township shops, next to all sorts of restaurants - just perfect. The Apartment itself was super modern, comfortable beds, air-conditioned, nice balcony - can't say anything negative about it! We stayed...

My kids think that Rumba resort has the coolest pool on the coast, hoping to stay there one day to get a chance for them to experience the pool. As a local we love Rumba and its shopping precinct etc . It has a great outlook and always looks lovely and clean with the balcony setup overlooking the ocean.

Stayed here for 4 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment. The place was spacious. One bedroom had an ensuite and the other bedroom had a separate bathroom so no one had to fight to use the bathroom! Ensuite even had its own jacuzzi! Room and amenities were fairly new and luxurious. The rooms have preset light switches so you can...

From arrival to departure the staff were very helpful and friendly. Se were allowed to use the pool and facilities even though we arrived early. Our apartment was lovely, clean, excellent facilities and viewm. The hotels location right by the sea is perfect, with restaurants and bars underneath. Loved the pools and bar. Would highly recommend.

We booked a three bed beach view room. Room was tidy and met all of our needs. Curtains and mats and some furniture is a little worn but did not impact the stay. We had some ants so bought some fly spray and fixed the stampede. Spent plenty of hours by the pool. Well done on the new bar, last...

First time staying at Caloundra and the Rumba resort. We really enjoyed the place and this hotel. Nice clean large rooms, great amenities in the room, good size balcony and we had a cool view across the passage to golden beach. The pools were good and a cool little bar which worked well with a two hour happy hour though...

Our last minute Christmas getaway at Rumba was exactly what we needed. Location is perfect for families with the beach, large playground, shops and restaurant at the doorstep. All within an easy walk.. which was handy considering our car broke down. We stayed in a two bedroom spa suite. Decor, cleanliness and size were fantastic. The kids loved the large...
