We had an amazing holiday at Rainbow Shores. The apartment we stayed in had three comfortable bedrooms and a large open kitchen meals area. The deck looked over the lagoon pool, so we were able to watch from our balcony. So much to do for the whole family. We loved the resort and Rainbow beach.

We stayed with family and with out children ages from 3-15, everyone had a great time. We stayed in the Baden apartments near the lap pool. The apartments were spacious and well equipped. Everything was provided,towels, bedding,down to powder for the washing machine. It was lovely waking up to the sound of birds each morning as well. There is something... More

Thanks so much for your review. Yes it is a little piece of paradise and our location backing onto one of the best beaches is a huge bonus. You often at this time of the year see the whales as they head north which is an unexpected bonus. Under new ownership / management we are constantly trying to improve our... More

We booked 4 nights in a three bedroom unit at Rainbow Shores. The unit itself was adequate. There was no ironing board in the room yet there was a iron. Strange. That being said we didn't ask for one because A.) there are no phones in the unit to call reception and B.) we were in a hurry to go.... More

The resort is situated in beautiful surroundings but that was the only positive for us. The room was terrible - dirty, poor condition, no air con, no oven. We were changed rooms due to a safety issue but this room was no better. We love Rainbow Beach but will find somewhere else to stay next time.

Dear Leisa B We are new management at the resort & notice your stay was in December 2014 so difficult to investigate further. However we have instituted room cleaning inspections and encourage all guests to immediately report guest delivery shortfalls so they can be addressed promptly. Hopefully you will give management a try again when you next visit our beautiful... More

Room was very clean, bed was so comfortable, the kitchen was equipped with everything we could possibly need. The food was outstanding and cooked fresh daily by the chef. Short walk to beach and town!

Hi Tammy, It is always a pleasure to meet guests and even more so, when they are as glad to be on a break as you and Keel were. Despite the extended trip from Sydney in a day ( a great effort taking to account your GPS dilemma) you were both keen to have an enjoyable time. Certainly Rainbow Beach... More

We were greeted by very friendly and helpful staff who gave us directions and helpful information. We ate at the restaurant twice and had a beautiful meal both times. The food was excellent and we appreciated the heaters that kept the evening chill away. The setting of the resort and restaurant was lovely. It was an easy walk to the... More

"Under new management" = give it a go! :-) The new managers at this resort are keen to make this resort an even more delightful get-away haven: shady trees, exotic birds, a choice of swimming facilities (lagoon pool, lap-pool, ocean waves); a daily happy hour at the bar, excellent restaurant cuisine and wine list, gym, tennis court, shaded walk-ways, friendly...

We found a discount through wotif, so didn't really know how the place would be. We were pleasantly surprised to find a really nice apartment in a great location, just a little way out of Rainbow Beach down the coast about 2km.
