“We'd love to visit there again”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

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 in the middle of the busy area, so it was so quiet and cosy.
It's located on the top of the hill and if you want to go to a local pub you have to walk a bit (on the way back to the hotel, it was pretty hard for us to go up that hill!!).
I fully enjoyed staying there. As the other reviews said, it's not a budget accommodation. But it surely gives you a relaxing and quiet time!

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, Would definitely recommend. Thank you!

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, as we always do when traveling. I couldn't find fault with the complex, lovely quiet spot to unwind & enjoy the views but still hear the ocean waves. Highly recommend!!!

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.

We had A super time for our weekend away at Rainbow Ocean Palms Resort which may I say wasn't long enough. Firstly we were welcomed briefly by the freindly, accommidating and welcoming managers as they were busy but we were treated like royality from the first minute as the room way set up beautifully and unlocked ready for us when we arrived. Our room 6 had wonderful views of the ocean and the motel pool, our room was private and had forest like sceniry to one side. There was no noise with in the resort to worry us at any stage. The pool was great which we experienced a few times.The spa was evcelant and the king sized bed was so comfortable. I would recommend this complex to anyone and we're returning again soon to experience it all again.

Room Tip: Go for unit #6, it's wonderful.

Had an absolutley amazing time, When we arrived Mark greeted us at reception and he was extreemly friendly and accomodating. It was my 30th Birthday and was surprised when we were offered an upgrade to one of the Penthouse Apartments.. This absolutley made my day!!!
The View was amazing to say the least, and the apartment was very spacious, clean and comfortable, the kitchen had everything you would need and also had a laundry which came in very handy. You really could not have asked for anything more, and it was lovely to lounge around the pool and still able to have the view no matter where you were. I also liked that it was a very private setting away from all the tourist and noise from the town.
We will definatley be going back!

Room Tip: The higher the level the better the view will be, but all rooms would have a lovely view regardless.
