We decided to splash out the extra $ for an overnight stay at Rumba having had its location & facilities recommended to us. There's no doubt the location is superb right on inlet water front - ideal for families to paddle etc & also a string of nice eateries along the boulevard. However that's where our recommendation ends. Whilst the... More

With the beach across the road it was a fantastic location. The staff were very friendly and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to others.. we are already planning our... More

The Rumba resort is easily the best spot in Caloundra! I have stayed at 5 other hotels/appartments and can confidently say that this is the best maintained property and the rooms are super generous and well appointed. The location opposite the beach is a positive as are their two pools and Jacuzzi that can be easily accessed outside of school... More

We had 8 nights at this fabulous resort recently. All staff were great from the reception staff to the housekeeping staff. A special mention to Ashlee who was very friendly and helpful. Our apartment was perfect for our family of 5. The rooms were spacious and well equiped and lightly serviced daily which was a plus. The beds were really... More

Room, cleanliness and amenities can't be faulted. They really do look after the property and it shows. Room was looked after daily and they really worked around us. On the flip side, the resort is more like a retirement village and there is just no fun atmosphere there. TV's are all limited on volume, stereo system hooked up to the... More

Hi Damian J, Thank you for your review. We are sorry for not meeting your expectations on this occasion. One of the most challenging aspects of hotel management is that balance between vibrancy and enjoyment for the more quite guests. In saying that, your sub-woofer certainly should not be disabled. Our maintenance team has fixed this fault. Once again, thank... More

We have stayed at Rumba a number of times and have never been disappointed. The rooms are fantastic and are well equipped and everything works as it should. Bulcock beach is across the street and there are plenty of food options on the Esplanade. Highly recommend.

We think this is one of the best places we've ever stayed at. Great apartments which were pristine clean and equipped with top class utilities. The pools and spa were fab.
