My wife and i stayed here and were greeted with a huge modern room with an awesome view. It was very clean and was surrounded by good restaurants and beaches. Will be back in the future. The modern pool was definitely a stand out feayure with see through portholes.

Our family of three (2 adults & miss 6) stayed in a 2 bedroom spa room for 4 nights between Christmas and new year. We had a ground floor unit with our balcony opening up onto the pool area. To be honest, for future visits, I would request an upper floor apartment. The master bedroom and lounge both have glass...

This place has spacious 2 and 3 bedroom apartments. The one we stayed in had its own kitchen and laundry and a big balcony that overlooks the beach and gets a great breeze. Below the apartment are restaurants such as Italian, Hogs Breath, Coffee Club and Seafood. Great location if you want to be in the centre of the action.

Great location with shops, restaurants and lovely beach within walking distance. Great pool, spa and lots of young families enjoying themselves. The apartment (3 bedroom - 5 people) was very clean, and modern with great appliances. Daily servicing excellent, very friendly staff. Kitchen was however poorly stocked e.g. 1 knife, 1 chopping board, no serving platters, 1 salad/fruit bowl -...

Hi amy912015, just a busy time...lots of kids. You are correct, the higher floors are much quieter. The kitchen you had sounds like it was under stocked for some reason. Not sure why, but we're onto it. So sorry, we normally get comments about how well they are equipped. Once again, apologies. Bill.

Location was very good - with about eight different cafes and restaurants downstairs underneath the hotel (an Italian restaurant, a Hog's Breath, a big bar that also served food and sometimes had live music, a burger bar, a takeaway shop, a Coffee Club and a nice little cafe that did lovely breakfasts). The beach and boardwalk were across the street,...

Great review kd2226, and so detailed. Thank you for taking the time. We know what you mean about the parking sometimes. It's just been a very busy time. One small thing though. There are toilets on the main pool deck in the main pool enclosure. Sorry to didn't notice them. Next time :-)

My husband had a lovely time here. We have stayed multiple times because of the lovely spacious modern apartments, pool and bar facilities, fantastic restaurants nearby and the amazing beach. We will be back again. Such good value for money.

We stayed at Rumba for 5 nights and upon booking in I was very impressed with the resort. It has 2 beautiful pools and the largest, warmest spa I've ever seen!

Hi Jess B, great that you loved the place, so sorry about the noise. It's not often that we get noise complaints so this must have been one of those things. The Ocean Apartments are super quite.

This was our second visit to this resort and we would happily go back again. After we booked, we realised that we were there in "schoolies week" and very nearly cancelled. We went ahead with the visit after talking to the resort and receiving their assurances around their no parties policy. It was perfectly quiet in the room and we...

from the friendly staff, amazing view, great room with spa bath.. all the luxuries of home would stay again and recommend to anyone staying on the Sunshine Coast. The beach is across the road and you are surrounded by loads of resturants just behind the resort, on the ground floor and along the esplanade. Excellent position.
