Adelaide, Australia
Reviewed 21 October 2016

My apartment was huge - it did have two bedrooms, but it was better than many apartments that people would live in! Fully equipped with everything thought of, it was a pity I was only there by myself for a two day conference. The perfect place for a week or two's holiday.

.....I seriously could not find anything to fault here. Location: Across the road from the beach, great restaurants downstairs. Beautiful boardwalks nearby make for some great walks. Facilities: The heated pool was great for our little 8 month old. The other pool and the spa are very large. Room: Wow! Everything you need is here. Washer & dryer and a...

Two nights of excellence! Great accommodation, first rate amenities...hard to fault, but if I had to I would say that the two tiny vanities in the en suite bathroom leave no room for putting your toiletries, make up etc. Be a better idea to make one long benchtop and dispense with the cubbyholes in between. The HUGE bed was so...

Rumba Resort is well located across from the beach and between the main street and the beach. Caloundra has a good supply of restaurants so if you're looking to kick back and enjoy five star facilities and eat out you're in the right place. Alternatively, the apartment had all we needed (except some minor omissions) to dine in with a...

You definitely get what you pay for at Rumba. Don't be put off by the slightly higher price tag. Location is great. Just a short walk to shops and cafes at your doorstep. They even have a great little cocktail bar downstairs by the pool! Room was amazing with 2 bathrooms in our 1 bedroom apartment! Staff were pleasant. Hotel...

My family of 5 stayed here for 7nights. We paid premium price for a higher floor ocean view deluxe apartment... The balcony was small... And offered a view of the ocean,but very tucked in and enclosed by others plus NO SUN on the balconies at all. We requested a move to a bigger balcony but was told the bigger ones...

From check in to check out and everything in-between the staff here made our two week stay most enjoyable.
