Big flat screen TV, washing machine, clothes dryer machine, dish washer , microwave oven, electric oven and a coffee maker that all look new. The resort is well... More

Thank you for writing such a positive and detailed review, it is very much appreciated. I am however concerned you experienced slow and limited wi-fi. This certainly is not what we pay our ISP to deliver. I will be following this up, but apologies in your case where somehow the system has faulted. Best regards, and we hope to see... More

I've visited the sunny coast on many occasions, both for business and pleasure, this is the second time I've stayed here for these reasons - very clean and modern apartments - great locations above shops, restaurants, cafe etc.. - opposite beach with great views I'll be back soon

I stayed in a ocean front room in June this year with my family (2 toddlers) and loved it. It wasn't cheap, but unlike a lot of the other places we stayed on the trip you actually get value for the money - really well fitted out and nothing skimped on. eg Miele kitchen appliances! I requested a room on... More

We treated ourselves to break for our wedding anniversary. Slightly beyond our normal budget but we got a good deal online. We were able to check in early too. The room had a slight pool and ocean view which was lovely. The room is a great size and with 2 bedrooms and bathrooms great for families, we had our 4... More

Our room was above Drift bar, on the both nights we were here the music was still blasting till midnight. Street noise from this bar is very loud aswell. Glad we didn't have our daughter here otherwise we would of had to leave because the music and street noise was that loud. Definatley going home tired!

William D, General Manager at Rumba Beach Resort, responded to this review

Please accept our apologies for the noise issue you encountered. We've been balancing the vibrancy of our esplanade with the comfort of our rooms really well, but something went wrong last week. A communication with one of the DJs failed and hence, the noise. We really are sorry, and we hope this won't be repeated for future guests. Regards, Bill. More

Stayed here for 4 nights in a 1 bed spa unit. Units are quite large with equipped kitchen, comfy living area with home theatre and large spa bathroom. Back units are a little noisy but location, pool area and views make up for it. Close to cafés and corner store.

A beautiful hotel in a perfect location with all the amenities except for noise reduction. Our room was just above the bar area and the music was so loud we could not get to sleep until after midnight. This was such a shame as the hotel itself is great. Noise reduction glass etc would be very beneficial for the rooms... More

We are so sorry about the noisiness you experienced from the bar. I know it's of little consolation, but it's really rare that we have a problem. The bar is normally very understanding of guest's comfort and they operate within the rules. i.e. no loud music after 10pm. Once again, our apologies. If we can make it up to you,... More

We had a 1 bedroom unit which was extremely large & spacious. King size bed which was great. Good location with views of the estuary. Plenty of restaurants underneath the resort for breakfast & dinner. Would definitely stay here again.

Reception only open during daytime. Would it be possible for reception to stay open longer??? This would accommodate late arrivals and also I feel the busy time are during the morning and early evenings when guests are returning from the days activities... Other than that it was great...
