Be aware this is an apartment style hotel, so no bars or room service. However the rooms are specious and clean and offer all you need (kitchen,washing machine, dryer) with a traveling family. Beach and coffee shops are within close proximity.

Rumba was our home away from home. We had a 2 bedroom Spa Suite which was immaculate, spacious and well equipped. The location is great and we were given access to our room on arrival instead of having to wait for normal check in time. I will definitely stay here again on my return to the Sunny Coast :)

The location of Rumba is top notch, with great views and only a step away from the beach! But the suburb it is located within is very 'sleepy' - with no great shops or any really great restaurants/cafes close by... You really have to head out of the area to find some nice places to eat (Noosa) if you want... More

We did not want to leave. I was in such a lovely location with great dining options all around us. The rooms were great. Had a great time in the pools and relaxing on the lounge chairs under the palms. Free wifi was a bonus. Beds were comfy and the bathrooms were big and had a huge spa bath. Loved... More

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
