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

Thank you for your valuable feedback. As much as we would like to offer an early check-in to all our guests, this is of course not possible, especially without any prior notice. I note that we we able to get you into your room at 1,15pm and pulled out all stops to do so. We are sorry this didn't meet... 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. Staff were very friendly and helpful and all my requests were attended to. Will definitely visit again and recommend to family and friends

One of the best places to stay on Sunshine Coast, situated Central Caloundra, with restaurants and cafes immediately below looking onto beach. Two bedroom on fourth floor, very modern, absolutely a great weekender stay. Solo for one night rest n relax --tonight and totally enjoying a treat to be completely alone-would also be ideal for anniversary or something a little... More

Room is beautiful and comfortable, the only thing that lets Rumba down is the noise. We stayed for 4 nights, front of the resort (near the road) on the 4th floor. Should have requested the 5th floor as the people above us had children who kept running back and fourth at about 6:30am. The walls are paper thin! Come Monday... More

Thank you for reviewing us. We are really sorry you experienced some noise. I guess that because we are located right in the heart of the action, the vibrancy of the town is all close by. The bathroom issue you experienced is certainly not normal. We will be right on to that. Thanks again, Bill. More

Although we only required an overnight stay, the Resort certainly lived up to its reports. Pros. The one-bed apartment was very new, spotlessly clean and we had an outlook from the rear block over the ocean. We didn't use much in the way of facilities, but next time maybe we shall do so. Staff were most courteous and friendly. We... More

Thank you for taking the time to review us so positively, it is very much appreciated. We will certainly take on board your thoughts about the small credit card fee. Regarding the $200 pre-authorisation, just so you know, we release this immediately upon departure. Any delay in getting access to the funds comes from individual banks. Some are really quick,...

We just stayed here for 2 nights, in a 2 bedroom Ocean view apartment, we travel quite frequently and stay in some lovely places and I would need to say this was outstanding. Very well appointed, great location, plenty of places to eat within walking distance not too mention the view & beach across the road. Right from my first... More

Stayed at Rumba last weekend for a mix of business and pleasure. Family including young kids came also. The 3 bedroom ocean apartment was great. Views were amazing. Cleanliness of the rooms was great, all amenities were included. Size of the room was fantastic, plenty of room to spread out. With pools and the spa to play in, everyone had... More

We are a small family and had a lovely apartment on the ground floor with great pool access and a fabulous outlook to the beach. Problem was it was right above the restaurants and bars and there is no double glazing or good sound insulation in the room. Not great for a little one trying to get to sleep...or big... More

Thank you for reviewing us. I hope you received my phone message that I left for you yesterday. We are really sorry about the noise you experienced. It is really good advice to request a higher room because then, there are no problems. When booking direct, and with a bit of notice, we can nearly always assist. Thanks again for... More
