Found this place to be far to over priced. The staff are rude and I think not used to the busy period. It seemed like we were a bother staying there and we actually didn't even have any requests and could of made several complaints about the state of the room. The room was showing a lot of signs of...

We stayed in a two bedroom, two bathroom fully self contained apartment which when we first entered took our breath away - the main bedroom and bathroom is really something. Upon closer inspection the furniture is quite shabby which spoils the apartment and takes away the luxury feel which was our first impression. The kitchen cupboards are also greasy and...

We had an absolutely lovely three nights at Rainbow Sea Resort. The apartments are close enough to town and the beach to walk to everything, but also just far enough above it all to feel a bit secluded. This also contributes to the amazing view! Everything was very well equipped and presented, and the pool was a great facility. My...

This accommodation has to be the best I have ever stayed in. The apartment, facilities and view far exceeded my expectations. Clean and with everything provided as far as self catering we did not need to bring a thing. We were mesmerized by the views from the enormous balcony. The views continue even when swimming in the magnificent infinity pool....

Chose Rainbow Sea Resort initially for it's location to all the venues we would have to be attending over the weekend. We entered our apartment and the first thing that struck us was the view and the next was that all amenities in the unit was so well thought of. Nothing is needed if visiting and staying in these apartments...

We booked to stay here for three days and liked it so much we extended by another day. The apartments are on the hill overlooking Rainbow Beach and the ocean which goes for miles. The view is fabulous and the apartment first class. Upstairs was the large open plan lounge/dining/kitchen with wall to wall and floor to ceiling sliding windows...

First impressions are powerful and opening the door into this apartment was certainly impressive! A very large kitchen, dining and living area with the sliding doors already opened up for us onto a vast deck with music playing through the sound system. Nice touch guys!

Our apartment was very well decorated and planned with the layout perfect for capturing the views of the ocean from every room. There was a king size bed that was very comfortable. The views looked over the Rainbow Beach township to the north to Fraser Island and the east views were of the ocean. It was very quiet. We were...
