My sisters and I went there with my nephew and a couple of his mates to celebrate his 16th birthday. The unit was absolutely beautiful - the balcony was massive, the view was perfect....however the pod coffee machine they had in the room 'chewed up' the pods and spat out grainy watery coffee, so when we asked Reception if we...

These coffee machines, I tell you what, they can be troublesome. So sorry that there was a miscommunication. We have a policy that anyone with operational issues gets free pods - no questions asked. I'll certainly try to find out what happened in this instance, so sorry once again. Glad you enjoyed your stay otherwise. Cheers, Bill.

Recently I attended a conference in Caloundra and stayed at the conference hotel Rumba Beach Resort and Spa. From the initial booking experience to the check out I really couldn't fault the complex or it's fabulous staff including the housekeepers. So lovely and clean and the room and foyers reflected this clean fresh smell. I'm in the industry and maybe...

Rumba is nothing to what it used to be. It is very overrated for the price that is charged for ocean view - Ocean view is a few metres you can see from one side of the balcony. There was no privacy into the lounge room as other guests entry ways are only visible, not the beach. The King size...

This review has come as a real surprise and I'm so disappointed that you had such a bad experience. We are so regularly praised for awesome bedding and our king feather pillows, I don't know what could possibly have gone wrong, but something obviously did. Regarding the credit card security, we have gone to great lengths to ensure this is...

this resort was beautiful, what attracted me to it was its perfect location at Calounda, our 2 bedroom facing beach, the other attraction was the "no partying policy" which suited us as had just flown in from overseas and wanted a peaceful relaxing stay upon arriving in Australia. Our unit was top floor, corner unit with large corner balcony with...

Thank you for some very constructive comments. I guess that we do have kids here, and they do love the pools. They certainly shouldn't be a disruption to other guests and it looks like our supervision fell short on this occasion. Please accept my apology, I will follow this up with our team. Bill.

We stayed in the two bedroom beach view apartment and couldn't fault a thing. The apartment was spacious, the bed was very comfy, the spa was lovely but only enough room comfortably for one and we didn't get any street noise. The apartment was lovely and clean. The view is amazing and the location was perfect. We would definitely stay...

Stayed in a ground floor 3-bedroom apartment recently while attending a work conference. The unit was a big as my house! Bedrooms were a very decent size with comfy beds. No air con that we could see and rooms got a little stuffy at night. I slept with the balcony door open to let fresh air in. Noise was from...

Rumba Beach Resort ticks every box. We stayed in a King spa room, situated on a corner with beautiful views to Bullock beach. We watched the sunset on our balcony while sharing a bottle of wine and we were able to walk to local restaurants without worrying about driving. We took long walks along the beach, the location was perfect!...

Thanks so much for taking the time to post a positive review. We receive a lot of comments about the pillows. Main Linen in Kawana Waters are our suppliers. They sell direct to the public too.

Third time staying at Rumba and has been a pleasure each stay. From the extremely helpful reception staff through to the attentive service from the cleaners. The rooms are neat and tidy, offering all you could need. The views from our rooms have all been great especially our latest visit on L5 (recommend room 505 or 506 for best views)....
