The apartment we stayed in was very modern and extremely clean. I loved the things that were provided like beach towels, personal bathroom kits, free wifi and rooms made up daily. Items that you need more of like dishwashing powder etc you will need to ask for more of as they dont get replaced when your room is serviced. All... More

Great family resort and a great location to base your family holiday on the Sunshine Coast. Beautiful part of the world......definitely recommend. Staff was helpful, would recommend the need to hire a car though (although a bus station is accross the road ), convience store around the corner, a playground is close and restaurants below.

Great location and wonderful beaches just at the door step. We found the staff very accommodating and friendly on arrival, which is always so nice after a long drive. The room was spacious and clean with magic views. Thank you Rumba.

Lots of good things about this resort- well resourced room, great view (spa suite with partial ocean view) free wifi, and close to shops, restaurants and beaches. We felt it was good value and staff were helpful. Thanks Rumba for a relaxing week away.

This is at least our 3rd stay at Rumba and it's not aging well. The maintenance around the pool area was poor. The area is EXTREMELY slippery when wet and if you do have a fall don't expect any sympathy or first aid from their staff. I was ignored by resort staff having a bad fall during my stay. Will...

We only got to stay 1 night due to getting stuck in the brisbane storm however what we did see was great. Apartment very clean and modern. Free wifi in the room. Nice comfy bed ensured a good night sleep. Pool area looked nice but didnt have time to use the facilities.

This place has it all for a nice relaxing QLD get away - staff is friendly, place is clean and very relaxing. There are good choice of restaurants downstairs. We tried 2 - Tides and Surf. Bother were very nice. My only disappointment was with the beach across the road. However, a bit further down beach was wonderful.

We spent 2 nights at Rumba before heading up the coast. With a 2 year old and a 10 week old travelling is not as easy as it once was but the team at Rumba made it fantastic for all of us. Simple things like pumping up tyres on the pram to making the 2 year olds bed and carefully... More
