Kids enjoyed the pool and we enjoyed relaxing on the huge deck with a glass of wine. Rainbow Seas is just behind the caravan park with a 2 min walk... More

My fiance and I stayed in the 2 level penthouse for the weekend. The penthouse was massive - plenty of room for a group of people, and certainly enough room for the two of us. The accommodation was well equipped, very tidy and provided the amazing views across the town and out to the ocean. The lady at reception was... More

We stayed here for three nights on the long weekend. We were on the first floor and had a great view out over the water. These units are very large in size which is great when you are travelling with a 7 and 9 year old and want a bit of space. Well equipped. The location is very good as... More

We have done both types of trips to Rainbow, camping, and now luxury. Staying on the top floor, with amazing views of the fraser coast, and an open space unit that lets your cares wash away, the king size beds and the spa in the ensuite made for a wonderful long weekend. Don't think my wife will ever go camping... More

When I am paying hundreds of dollars per night, I expect the premises to be meticulously clean and just having that punch that you have received your money's worth. I instantly noticed the cleaning standard especially for this price tag was definitely below par. Gecko poo on kitchen bench, floor felt grubby under feet, 2nd bathroom floor had not be... More

Pub food was great,... More

We've stayed at Rainbow Sea Resort twice and we're about to book a third stay. It's truly an incredible place to stay - I wish we could move in there! The apartments are well designed and the furnishings are beautiful. The kitchens are well appointed with everything you need to cook just about anything you can think of. The huge... More

Stayed here at the end of September. It was a family weekend away with three adult couples. It was my parents staying with me & my husband, my brother & his fiance and we spent a long weekend there. It was just what we wanted. We had the penthouse booked to ensure we had the open air rooftop. Upon first... More

Great place to stay to enjoy Rainbow Beach and surrounding attractions. Easy walk down to the shops and eateries - with lots of good quality dining options for such a small town. We were only 2 people and they closed off the other 2 bedrooms to make it a one bedroom apartment. Modern, clean apartment with a stunning beach view.... More

For our first stay at Rainbow Beach we couldn't have asked for a better apartment. Even though we arrived two hours before the check in time were able to go straight to our apartment without any hassles. Other than a very tight car space and the cleaning left a little to be desired everything was great and we would definitely... More
