This was our third year staying at Rainbow Bay, but our first at Rainbow Place. In the previous years we stayed at a flashier, far more expensive place, in an inferior location. Mark and Vicky were lovely, and so helpful accommodating us when we had a car issue. You simply can't beat the location or views, and the units have... More

Rainbow Place truly came to our aid! Vicky and Mark were exceptional and did everything they could do help us out of a sticky situation. We had booked a hotel a few doors down and were bitterly disappointed with what we discovered. Small and shabby rooms that weren't clean and an ocean view that was a mere glimpse than a... More

My wife and myself stay at Rainbow Place twice a year and it's like a home away from home in the middle of paradise. You could not ask for any better hosts than Vicky & Mark along with their staff. Nothing is ever a problem to them and they make you feel relaxed from the minute you walk in the... More

Stayed here for a week with my parents and baby girl. The apartments are spacious and well appointed. Being directly opposite the beach the views are spectacular. We managed to whale watch from the balcony most days. On the whole we had few complaints and enjoyed our stay immensely - it was only a few little things eg we found... More
