We booked 3 nights from 19-22 Nov in a 2 bedroom spa apartment. The apartment was clean and very modern, we were given an apartment that has partial, distant sea view from the living area on the 3rd floor and was quite pleased with it. We found out that the aircon was not working in the whole apartment except for...

It was the ideal spot for all our family members to stay both young and old to help celebrate my mother's 80th birthday. Something for everyone and the balcony looking over the water was so relaxing. Coffee machine is an added bonus.

Lovely area of Coloundra, very quiet and laid back. Hotel was modern with huge suits and very lovely, modern pools. Enjoyed a couple of cocktails at happy hour at the poolside bar. Staff were friendly, check in and out was easy and fast.

My wife and I just spent 2 nights at Rumba and our only disappointment was that we have never stayed previously. Our beautiful apartment had amazing water views which created a very relaxing environment. The resort is more like a 5 star hotel and even has a great onsite poolside bar called 26 degrees where the daily happy hour helps...

Service is outstanding and quality of the accommodation is the same. Little things that mean so much in self contained accomodation, like coffee pods and soap powder are all there, hen every day the kitchen bin is emptied. Location is superb with a child friendly beach opposite and good restaurants down stairs or in the resort itself are all there

Very much enjoyed the stay and the resort is right in the middle of the action Worth a look and the bar is great if you're looking for quiet drink Restaurants and coffee shops downstairs give lots of variety and the patrolled beach across the road is family friendly

I stayed in a 1 bedroom spa apartment and it was very luxurious. The whole resort was beautiful and the all staff were very helpful and friendly. I had the best view of the beach and the bed was very comfortable. It was a great place to stay and in a great location.
