We cannot be more happier than when after your greeted by Marilyn & Ron who are lovely and walk into your apartment with the Rainbow Bay sun beaming in through the windows to a clean, tidy & well presented abode.

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment on the first floor. We were a bit worried we might not have a view being so low down but we were pleasantly surprised at the vista from our large balcony. Beautiful view over to Rainbow Bay. Check in was quick and efficient with plenty of information provided as well as a voucher... More

what a wonderful place to stay for a weekend getaway. It was clean, spacious .We had the 3rd floor 2 bedroom apartment with wraparound balconies to die for looking down to the beach. The pool and spa was also a bonus.

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

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
