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!

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...

We have stayed in Rumba a few times in the last few years, beautiful rooms, beautiful pool + view and great location!! You walk out the gate and are spoilt for choice for places to eat. The beach is just 10 meters away. The cocktail pool bar is a great idea, loved it!

Just had our second holiday at Rumba last weekend and we all love it there. The view, the rooms, the pools, the car-parking, the location (best in town), the restaurants underneath and the design of the resort is brilliant. Caloundra is our favourite sunshine coast town and my whole family love it there. My kids enjoyed the bike ride along... More

We stayed for 2 nights, 6 and 7th June 2014. The room was lovely and clean. The bed was devine! and the choice of different height pillows a real bonus and lovely added touch! The spa was a great size for a couple. Very close to all restaurants and beach and just a minute walk to the main street. Very... More

Check-in was easy and the room nicely appointed. However, the TV in the bedroom was mounted on a side-wall and basically impossible to watch from the bed. I'm not sure why it was mounted in this way and didn't notice any way for it to swivel. Very strange. The bed was otherwise comfortable and the room was quite large. The... More

Thank you for writing such a positive review. It's very much appreciated. Apologies for the problems you experienced with the TV. I know there is one of our floor plans where it was decided the best place for the TV was on a mounting. This being due to the location of the built-in robes. So glad to hear that everything... More
