A flash place to stay, with loads of cafes and bars locally. A lovely patrolled beach over the road, and really nice pools. One pool has windows in the bottom so you can look down on diners beneath, and a glass end looking out to the street. It was very clean and quiet, with all appliances in the room, including...

We stayed in this apartment hotel for three nights and it had everything we needed, fully fitted open plan kitchen including dishwasher, two bathrooms, one housed a washing machine and tumble dryer. In the other bathroom we had a jacuzzi bath. The hotel is well positioned for both the beach and the amenities of the town. We loved it. It...

Our room was modern in furnishings with nice kitchen and laundry. Would have liked to be on a higher floor so we wouldn't look out over a roofline, but oh well. The bedroom was on the side facing the road, so it was quite noisy in the evening. My only complaint is that the daily housekeeping consisted of nothing more...

William D, General Manager at Rumba Beach Resort, responded to this review

Dear jsmccul, thank you for the honest feedback. I will definitively follow up on this. Whilst we only offer a light service daily, bins must be emptied daily. Regarding the coffee, I guess we do as much as we can. We are proudly the only apartment resort on the Sunshine Coast that offers a daily service. Thank you again. Bill.

Stayed 3 night for business in an ocean view room. Checking in was fast and friendly. This hotel checks all the boxes but by far, this is the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed in. Cannot recommend this place enough, will be back without a doubt.

My family stay here just one night but the place was really nice & tidy. very clean and over look on to the beach. a lot of restaurant round the area. parking is a available. ideal for family. It was expensive but if you are sharing the cost it is worth it.

Rumba Beach Resort is a beautifully located 5 star resort overlooking the beautiful Caloundra seaway. Rooms are very modern, clean and large. We had chocolates and champagne await us in our room which was a nice touch. Staff were friendly and helpful. Only thing we didn't like was the noise at night time.

We stayed for a relaxing family holiday with an 18 month old and a 3.5 year old for 7 nights in November 2016, and that was exactly what we got.
