This was a lovely place to stay. Very spacious with great views. It was very peaceful and relaxing, I would definitely recommend to others and will be returning myself. The breezes are fantastic and flowed through the whole apartment. Beds are fairly firm as are the pillows but this suits me well. TV reception was good and big screen and... More

We stayed at Rainbow Ocean Palms for one week in December 2013 and our stay was fantastic! The view from our unit was amazing. The unit was well equipped with everything we needed. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and plan on coming back in the future.

This beautiful and stylishly-designed resort overlooking Rainbow Beach and the Fraser Coast is just stunning. Every detail is taken care of, and the quality of the apartments, the way they are appointed and fitted out is to die for. I have stayed here twice before and I was not disappointed on my third visit. It's really quite wonderful, and so... More

If you want peace and quiet, chill out with a magnificent view and all the little mod cons then this place is a beautiful escape. I stayed a week and could and should stayed another 2 weeks. You self cater, with a little astute pre organisation, you can have a millionaire's retreat. Highly recommended. Vic D.

My hubby and I stayed here for 2 nights this past weekend.. what a beautiful place! The resort itself is a little drive from the centre of Rainbow Beach - but that's not a bad thing. The fact that the resort is perched up high on Cooloola Drive, on the other side of the Carlo Sandblow means that you get... More
