We are staying here at the moment and it's just amazing! It's so fresh and open with the most amazing views over Rainbow Beach.. I highly recommend this place to anyone that wants a luxurious weekend away! Fully self contained with a massive balcony to sun bake on !!!! Absolutely love it here

Our room was beautiful with lovely modern décor, very clean and a fabulous two person spa bath. It had gorgeous views with a massive balcony and the complex has a pretty vanishing edge pool. The room was very private and quiet. The only negative would be the beds. They were as hard as a rock and definitely need replacing. Apart... More

Loved the apartment the view was fantastic for relaxing but it is advertised as 'european Appliances' since when has Fisher & Paykel been European? Sharp knives are not so sharp. Could not even slice a tomato! Only half a drawer for a dishwasher in a 3 bedroom apartment? This does not add up. Car Parking is a squeeze. We were... More

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

Fantastic views, great position, huge balcony, wonderful spa bath for two, lots of space, lovely pool. Sadly cleanliness let it down and felt it was in need of a major spring clean. we would return again as these things happen but for paying top dollar we expect it to be clean .The managers were helpful . Pub food was great,... More
