We are a family of 4 - with children aged 7 and 10. The Rumba Resort seriously ticked all the boxes for a great holiday. The apartment we had was immaculate, stylish, spacious and well equipped. The facilities and pool were great with some great restaurants, parks and the beach at your doorstep. The staff made us feel welcome and... More

Stunning views from our balcony even when it was raining. Stunning Sunrises and Sunsets over the ocean and Pumicestone Passage with the Glasshouse Mountains in the background. A Photographers paradise when you are in your room or from anywhere outside on the extensive walkways that surround Caloundra. We received a lovely welcome from staff who were very accommodating and attentive... More

We stayed here for 3 nights recently. The location is brilliant and the rooms well furnished and spacious. The pool is fantastic. The proximity to the beach is a bonus and you don't need a car if you are only visiting local attractions. We would definitely stay here again.

Great facilities, we stayed in a 2 bedroom unit with a large balcony overlooking the extensive pool area (complete with pool windows looking down onto the street)and a sliver of an ocean view. Rooms were big, beds came with fat feather pillows, kitchen very adequate and living room spacious. There was also laundry in each unit. Parking is underneath a... More

We chose to stay at this resort over the Christmas period for a couple of nights. The 1 bedroom apartment was well appointed with all the necessities. Kitchen was lovely and open too. The king sized bed was very comfortable. However, the noise from the hallway of all the doors closing and opening and people talking in the hallways would... More

Hi Jellybaby88, thank you so much for the positive comments. It was such a busy time with kids over Christmas, and I know what you mean about the bagging doors. Most apartments don't have that problem, only some. Please mention it if you want to rebook again and we will ensure a nice quite night! Regards, Bill. More

We just returned from 5 nights at Rumba with our 3.5 year-old twins. On arrival, we were disappointed with our room as the balcony backed straight onto the pool and there were half a dozen people sunbaking right in front of us and heaps of kids playing. We must've been confused when booking online as we were expecting one of... More

Hi Deborah R, some really constructive feedback, thank you. We sometimes do have these comments around Christmas and each year we add more items in the kitchen. with toilet rolls etc, we often find guests buy extras for the longer stays but we will still resupply all these items upon request free of charge at any time.
