We stayed here for two nights in a first floor sea view apartment. The apartment was great with everything you could want. The lap pool and spa were very nice too. We had a lovely balcony overlooking the sea. Beds comfortable and for two couples it was perfect. Only complaint was there was a function in the rooms on the... More

This is not a bad hotel or resort, but I am not sure it is an excellent one. We enjoyed the stay, but we faced a number of issues when there: - The free wifi did not work; - It was cold (yes, on the Sunshine Coast) and the heating did not work; - There was no sea or pool... More

We stayed for 3 nights not knowing what to expect or do on the Sunshine Coast. Eva on the front desk made us feel very welcome and was continually helping us find adventures and explore options. The room was huge with great views, loved the spa bath. We used the pool everyday and hired the bikes. Thank you so much... More

Nice walks around boardwalk adjacent to the beach. Love it here for a weekend or night away. Some units are facing the estuary and best... More

The en suite was luxuries with a big spa bath.... More

First time staying at Rumba but have stayed at various places in Caloundra as we are local. Very central close to Bulcock Street and boardwalk. We stayed on the 4th floor the views were lovely. The unit itself was clean but a little bit tired. WiFi was a bit hit and miss. Restuarants down stairs were fantastic.

We had our second visit in June 2016 Rumba is an excellent, modern hotel in great location across the road from the beach. There are a number of restaurants directly below the hotel and others within a short walking distance Rooms are large, and has excellent swimming pools. Staff also very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended
