Would love to thank rumba resort staff for acceptional assistance rescheduling my booking due to unforseen circumstances. Highly recommended booking with rumba. Looking forward to our stay so much. If phone service is anything to go buy we are in for an amazing holiday.

Fantastic spot in Caloundra. Restaurants downstairs. A great little coffee shop just up the road. Great pool area. Spacious rooms with a balcony that overlooked the beach. This is our second time back at the resort.

We booked for 2 nights and had to extend as we were so impressed and comfortable. We booked a one bedroom studio apartment and were provided with room 507. A fabulous touch was receiving a text message to advise that our room was ready We can certainly highly recommend this room as it is set back from the front and... More

My brother and I had one of the two en suite bedroomed apartments that had a large balcony that overlooked the beach. It was so lovely waking up to a sea view, that one even forgave the noise of the parakeets! There was parking for both our cars. The staff were particularly nice and went out of their way to...

The Rumba resort certainly lived up to the reviews. Our family of 4 including 2 young children felt the Rumba was perfect for us. Great spacious rooms, clean and comfortable. We lived in the pools, shopping was in walking distance and the beach just across the road. Fantastic close access to all sorts of restaurants and take away eateries as... More

Me and my partner stayed two nights in the 1 bedroom spa suite. It was absolutely beautiful. The room was so clean and had everything you need for a comfortable stay. It was very very close to nice restaurants and the beach. The ocean view from the room was small but it didn't matter because we were in a perfect... More
