My fiancé and I stayed at Rainbow Ocean Palms for two nights in mid-July for a friend’s wedding. The resort gave me a call in the morning to inform me that our room was ready early (prior to the agreed check-in time) which I really appreciated. Our room was Unit 2, and the views were absolutely mind-blowing! The unit is... More

The staff were very friendly and helpful even before we booked in. The apartment was lovely, everything we could have asked for. We were recommended by friends and will forward this recommendation on to others.

Stayed for two nights, three adults, two kids. Room was beautiful and had everything you could need for a comfy stay. Sylvia on the front desk was lovely and went out of her way to be helpful. Pool area would be nice in the summer, wind was very cold during our stay. We will be back

Our room had a fantastic view and we enjoyed swimming in the pool on the ground floor. The staff was very friendly, and we got lots of information about local attractions. We loved the interior, and the room was so big. We also enjoyed BBQ on the balcony, and Colored Sandy Walk is just behind the hotel. It's not located... More

We stayed in this wonderful apartment for two nights, we didn't want to leave. The apartment was number five with panoramic views around the coast to Fraser Island and Tin Can Bay. You can see the view from the lovely spa bath and even the loo! We will definitely be back.

Rainbow beach in general is a great place but to have a view of the shore line like this from this resort is amazing! Great service, everything you need in one place! Also fairly close driving distance to the shops. Overall, my girl friend and I had a wonderful time in this resort and to be away from the city,... More

Greeted by Mark in reception who was very welcoming. Penthouse 12 has the most wonderful views, very clean apartment & everything you could possibly want for self catering. The bbq on the balcony was very handy as restaurants are not easily in walking distance especially for disabled. Bed was very comfy but if you like soft pillows bring your own,... More

By far the best apartment we stayed at on our trip to Australia. Top apartment with amazing views. A warm welcome and immaculate apartment made it 3 days of a fantastic stay. Thank you and hopefully see you again one day.
