Third time staying at Rumba and has been a pleasure each stay. From the extremely helpful reception staff through to the attentive service from the cleaners. The rooms are neat and tidy, offering all you could need. The views from our rooms have all been great especially our latest visit on L5 (recommend room 505 or 506 for best views).... More

We have been here a few times and every time I walk in the door of a Rumba Apartment, I'm so at home, so relaxed and so impressed. The rooms are spotlessly clean, the lounge, dining and kitchen are set up great and it has all the comforts of home. Beautiful view of Bulcock Beach from the roomy balcony. The... More

We stayed for 4 nights in a 2 bedroom ocean apartment. The apartments are well-appointed with everything you'd need to self-cater for a stay, if you chose to do so. The bedrooms are very spacious with king beds in both rooms (or twin singles if preferred). We opted for the second room to have a king size bed which attracted... More

Great weekend away. Very relaxing - excellent room. Electric bikes were brilliant! Very comfy bed, spa in the ensuite was very roomy. Extremely helpful and friendly staff. Great vouchers to use at local cafes and restaurants. Top quality appliances. Will be back again for sure.

The rooms are very modern and well appointed but we found the sound travelling from other guests a bit of an issue. For example when someone opened a tap or flushed the toilet upstairs we could hear it in the bedroom also people walking around on the tiled floors. We also had an issue with the pay TV but the...

Thank you for providing a detailed and helpful review. We don't get many comments at all about noise transference, so not sure what went wrong there. So glad you had a great time overall. Cheers, Bill. More

Was a bit disappointed that we couldn't get a 1 bedroom on beach front. Bedroom was at the back of apartment no balcony. I would definitely book a bigger apartment next time. Great bathroom. Bed a bit uncomfortable and pillows not great. Not sure if I would go back not a lot to do.

Thank you for reviewing Rumba Resort. As you've mentioned, we only have two and three bedroom Ocean Apartments, so sorry about that. Booking one of these will certainly get you the views you were hoping for. Depending on what you're looking for, there really is lots to do around Caloundra. Bike riding around the Coastal Pathway is a great activity.... More

We had a two-bedroom ocean view room on the top floor on the south end of the Resort. The views were absolutely gorgeous and the apartment was perfect. We had everything we needed for a relaxing holiday. Loved the Nespresso machine and having a washer and dryer. We had free Wi-Fi that was good enough for everyone in the family... More

From the time we arrived my partner and I get at ease. It was our anniversary and we were escaping to Rumba for the weekend.

A superior experience from the moment of check-in until we reluctantly left. The reception staff were friendly and welcoming. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment that left us wanting for nothing. Everything was of the highest quality and very comfortable. The heated lap pool was the highlight of my stay, complete with a glass end that overlooked the esplanade... More
