Although we only required an overnight stay, the Resort certainly lived up to its reports. Pros. The one-bed apartment was very new, spotlessly clean and we had an outlook from the rear block over the ocean. We didn't use much in the way of facilities, but next time maybe we shall do so. Staff were most courteous and friendly. We... More

We just stayed here for 2 nights, in a 2 bedroom Ocean view apartment, we travel quite frequently and stay in some lovely places and I would need to say this was outstanding. Very well appointed, great location, plenty of places to eat within walking distance not too mention the view & beach across the road. Right from my first... More

Stayed at Rumba last weekend for a mix of business and pleasure. Family including young kids came also. The 3 bedroom ocean apartment was great. Views were amazing. Cleanliness of the rooms was great, all amenities were included. Size of the room was fantastic, plenty of room to spread out. With pools and the spa to play in, everyone had... More

We are a small family and had a lovely apartment on the ground floor with great pool access and a fabulous outlook to the beach. Problem was it was right above the restaurants and bars and there is no double glazing or good sound insulation in the room. Not great for a little one trying to get to sleep...or big... More

Thank you for reviewing us. I hope you received my phone message that I left for you yesterday. We are really sorry about the noise you experienced. It is really good advice to request a higher room because then, there are no problems. When booking direct, and with a bit of notice, we can nearly always assist. Thanks again for... More

Vsited for 3 nights in Aug/Sep great location, great hotel, professional staff wouldn't hesitate to book again if we are back in Caloundra. Plenty of good places to eat in the area, ad the views were to die for.

I need to preface this review by stating "What I thought was Caloundra was actually Mooloolaba". So as we drove up Bulcock st the family started to panic as "no offence Caloundra" Bulcock st does not exactly entice and the quality of shops and overall look is a bit pedestrian. I started getting in trouble for making such a stupid... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a detailed review, and for your kind words regarding Rumba. I think you are spot on. Caloundra township is certainly is rustic, but interesting when you wander around. The good news is, there is some real progress being made with a main street revitalisation project. In years to come, Caloundra... More

Our first time to caloundra, we loved it and we were so happy to have 5 days of sunshine!! We chose Rumba as although it was quite pricey compared to some other places, we didn't want to save cash and turn up to somewhere & be disappointed. We were quite impressed with Rumba.

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
