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! Our 2 bedroom spa unit was small but catered to what we needed and the ensuite bathroom was HUGE!! We ate dinner in most nights and the little kitchen...

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. If you would like return, I'll upgrade yo to the front for free to make up for your past experience. I hope to...

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.

My husband and I stayed in room 413 with the ocean view which was fantastic. The rooms were spacious and the whole unit was very modern with everything you need. Having access to both a washer/dryer and a dishwasher made a big difference, even though we only stayed 2 nights. Having access to a bunch of restaurants and cafes just...

Couldn't fault the stay i had at Rumba resort with my partner. Gorgeous view in room 206, although it may not have been a high level it was good enough view of the beach! The apartment featured a spa and king bed. Luxurious to say the least. Restaurants are just 30 second walk down stairs! Staff were very friendly and...

We stayed for 9 days in a 2 bedroom apartment. Apartment was very clean. They made our bed and emptied the bins daily which is a nice touch. The staff were friendly. The only thing is that we were given a ground floor apartment so it was less private when we wanted to go on our balcony or even open...

Hi Marisa P, sorry about the truck noise. It's a funny thing with the pools. Some people like a fresher pool and others prefer the heated. Hopefully be offer the best of both.

Lovely resort in a great location on the waterfront in beautiful Caloundra. Didn't enjoy the 3pm check in, pool bar was closed all weekend and we were charged for two extra coffee pods only to discover there wasn't sufficient milk for 4 coffees in our room.

Thank you for your honest comments. I can certainly see what you mean in your comments. It's true some layouts and apartment positions are better than others. If you do decide to return, please phone us and we can work around these issues on your next visit, and the coffee pods are on us! Thanks again, Bill.
