Rumba is by far the nicest, and only place to stay in Caloundra! The resort is very new and finished to very high standards. The apartments are lovely and spacious and nicely decorated, with stunning ocean views from the balcony. Rooms have a light service each day, which is nice compared to most apartments. There is a big issue of... More

Thank you for the generous comments regarding your stay at Rumba. Sorry about the noise from upstairs, it's normally pretty good sound proofing. You are right about he town in some ways. A lot of guests really like the rustic feel of the place, but we have recognised the need for change. A major study has just been completed for... More

Although it is a bit more expensive than other places in the area we found it was worth the price. The rooms are fantastic, well presented, very clean and they have everything you would need - even a coffee machine (although a bit more milk provided at the beginning would be good as only enough to make 2 cups of...

We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment on the 4th floor at the Rumba for 8 nights during August. We found the resort is nothing short of brilliant. The location is perfect. Just across the road from the beach and situated above a whole block of eateries including an Italian restaurant, Coffee Club, Hogs Breath Cafe and Drift Bar. There's... More

If only we had been staying here for a week instead of one night as this place is just lovely. We were on the 4th floor & the balcony was a very pleasant place to sit overlooking the beach. The apartments are very well laid out with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (one with spa bath, the other with laundry), kitchen,... More

Recently stayed for three nights at Rumba. Had a 1 bedroom apartment that was exactly what we needed. Checkin staff were great, room was clean and well presented. The kitchen had all we could ask for. Overall very happy with the accommodation. Only downside (and reason for average rating) was the bed. Both my partner and I slept terribly and... More

Lovely, modern, clean, good views. Even in winter the pool was warm (well one of them) and the spa was glorious! I particularly like the windows from the pool into the roof of the Hog's Breath Cafe. Would definitely go back.

What can I say...this is one of the best resorts I have ever stayed in. Checked in early but had to wait for text message for room to be ready, not a problem.

Thank you for writing such a positive and detailed review, it is very much appreciated. I am however concerned you experienced slow and limited wi-fi. This certainly is not what we pay our ISP to deliver. I will be following this up, but apologies in your case where somehow the system has faulted. Best regards, and we hope to see... More
