We spent the first few days of our honeymoon here in September 2014. Thank you for the card and chocolates we found in our room on arrival. Our room was really spacious and housekeeping do a fabulous job. The heated pool and spa was also great and location wise it's a good spot with restaurants, cafes and nice boardwalk close... More

Had a wonderful weekend at Rumba for a family birthday. We splurged on a room with a view and it was magic. Brilliantly handy to all the eateries downstairs, 20 seconds to the beach and close to the markets on the weekends. The pool and spa area is lovely and quite a novelty for the kids with the port hole... More

we stayed in a three bedroom appartment with balcony overlooking Pumistone Passage, just a perfect spot. Kitchen roomy and well equipped, including a Nespresso machine with a starter pack of pods. Bedrooms are of generous size with build in wardrobes, main with ensuite and spa bath. Washing machine and drier in main bathroom. All appliances are top quality Miele. Resort... More

Great family resort with options for swimmimg - 2 pools or the beach across the road! Self catrering facilities are great with everything you can think of in the kitchen. 2 bathrooms is great with a family with kids. The beds and pillows are the most comfortable I have ever slept on. Really close to town - 5 minute walk.... More

We were a party of 4 staying at Rumba. We couldn't have been happier, the reception staff were excellent. We arrived an hour before check in. Although our room wasn't ready, the staff texted us as soon as it was. Jacuzzi and pools were fabulous. Highly recommend this resort, with magnificent views adding to our 2 night stay we were...

Modern Resort with well maintained suite and common areas. Excellent location on the River and Beach. With restaurants at the doorstep. Delightful and helpful staff. Stayed 4 nights, very relaxing, with outdoor spa, lap-pool, and another pool. Perfect for a couple and ideal for families.

We stayed in a two bedrooms SPA suite for two nights at Rumba in Nov. Except the room we stayed wasn't beach front; supermarket wasn't in walking distance; one room which it's near doorway was too noisy at late night, others features we were all very satisfied with, such as great front desk service; great location which near beach and...

We had the pleasure of staying at the Rumba Beach Resort for 5 nights in mid November. As I hadn't visited Caloundra in over 25 years, I wasn't really buzzed about this trip but what a place. The Rumba Beach Resort was exceptional in every way. Beautiful rooms, excellent location, fantastic staff. On our last night we had some 'serious'... More

We decided to stay at Rumba because my nephew was holding their wedding reception there. We requested an early entry because the wedding was at 3 pm. We done the red eye flight from Perth, then waited till 11 am to be told room has been vacated by 10 so will get onto it. After a couple of approaches we... More

My husband and I spent 5 nights at the Rumba Beach Resort. The apartment was very spacious and modern. Very well appointed and close to many cafes and restaurants.
