First memory is the warm welcome received from Ron & Marilyn Fairbank, the resort managers...delightful couple. Our 2 bedroom apartment was clean and spacious with a great wrap around balcony and while the views were somewhat interupted, they were still very appealing. The apartments are a little dated but have everything you could need/want. The kitchen is well equipped with... More

Clean, spacious, very comfortable fully equipped units with huge balconies, great views short walk to beach and shops. Have stayed a few times already and will definitely be back. Secure undercover parking. Very quiet.

Don't expect 5 star because you aren't paying 5 star prices - very good value with limited sea views. Great location and everything worked well. Clean and a lovely pool and spa and sauna. The shower was lovely and powerful!

Recently stayed at Rainbow Bay Resort in December and it was so good I thought I would take the opportunity of another quick stay in the coming March. I must say one of the reviews on this site left me a little bemused. I don't know how anyone could find any serious fault with this complex. It is beautifully maintained,... More

My family and I have been staying at Rainbow Bay Resort for 11 years now and I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. Staying here is now apart of our family tradition. We stay here at Christms,Easter, surf completions, Cooly Rocks On ( previously known as Wintersun) and any other weekends we decide to come down the coast. It's our... More

We enjoyed our stay with a great view and easy walking distance to everything we needed. Pool and spa were also great. Nice beaches nearby. We'll be back for sure. A little quieter down this end of the Gold Coast and we liked that.

We went as a family to stay at rainbow bay resort. After looking at the photos on line we thought it looked lovely so we booked. We got to our room and it must have been one of the few rooms which hadn't been renovated.... It was disgusting. We got there and cried.... We were paying the same price as... More

We are sorry you did not enjoy your stay. All units are individually owned and have different furnishings. The clutter we presume is the kitchen utensils and bowls etc which are supplied. We dispute the false advertising claim as we do make it our policy to have unenhanced photos on our web site. We realised that we would not be... More

We have just returned home from a lovely stay at Rainbow Bay Resort & were very sad to leave after such a wonderful stay. The location is great, an easy walk to the beach, playground & shops. Our unit on the 2nd floor had a great view of the beach, a new kitchen & updated furniture plus super comfy beds.... More

My husband and I recently spent 5 days at Rainbow Bay Resort, Coolangatta, Queensland and had one of the best holidays we have had in years. The room was set out beautifully, with a wonderful view and every amenity we could want for. What was exceptional was the attention and service provided by the managers, Ron and Marilyn Fairbank.

We have stayed with Ron and Marilyn for winter vacations from New Zealand for many years and we love it. We now stay in the same apartment every year. The proximity to the surf breaks is the main attraction but also the family friendly location with shops, park and entertainment close by. The pool and spa is great for kids... More
