Fantastic Resort, great staff. Clean rooms, couldn't have asked for more. Highly recommend. Pool and location was awesome. Cocktails at the pool bar were even better. Close to everything so no need to drive. Thoroughly enjoyed.

After calling into the Rumba in August to view rooms and resort for a future visit, I was shown two refurbished apartments. They looked lovely. My booking of 7 nights in Late November of a one bedroom apartment was obviously in need of refurbishing. Planter and plants completely disintegrated. Walls and skirting looked like they were ready for painting. Foot...

Dear sunnydaysnow12, we have to cop this one on the chin. We only have a couple of unrenovated apartments and we are working on getting them upgraded too. We were also going repair works before Christmas. If you can please contact me at wdarby@rumbaresort.com.au, we can discuss a complimentary stay. Our apologies once again. Bill.

We booked 3 nights from 19-22 Nov in a 2 bedroom spa apartment. The apartment was clean and very modern, we were given an apartment that has partial, distant sea view from the living area on the 3rd floor and was quite pleased with it. We found out that the aircon was not working in the whole apartment except for...

I'm not going to make excuses, other than to apologise unreservedly for the way you were made feel. We do hope to make it up to you if you...

It was the ideal spot for all our family members to stay both young and old to help celebrate my mother's 80th birthday. Something for everyone and the balcony looking over the water was so relaxing. Coffee machine is an added bonus.

Lovely area of Coloundra, very quiet and laid back. Hotel was modern with huge suits and very lovely, modern pools. Enjoyed a couple of cocktails at happy hour at the poolside bar. Staff were friendly, check in and out was easy and fast.

My wife and I just spent 2 nights at Rumba and our only disappointment was that we have never stayed previously.

Service is outstanding and quality of the accommodation is the same. Little things that mean so much in self contained accomodation, like coffee pods and soap powder are all there, hen every day the kitchen bin is emptied. Location is superb with a child friendly beach opposite and good restaurants down stairs or in the resort itself are all there
