This is not too bad but was sold as a five star resort and it is definitely only three stars.
overall its ok but the noise from the street is terrible at 6.00am every morning when the rubbish trucks come.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review for Rumba Resort. We are very proud of our official 5 star rating but we acknowledge the noise from some apartments during morning council rubbish collection. Our Ocean Apartments don't experience any noise from traffic or rubbish trucks, we hope this helps and would love to see you back for another stay.

We stayed for the weekend and had a great time. The apartment was spotlessly clean with great amenities. Right on the river with great views and close enough to everything that we didn't need to move the car once we got there. Just a great place to relax and unwind. Had a tiny bit of trouble getting our entry card to work sometimes but it always worked in the end.

Thanks for the great feedback, especially regarding room service deliveries. We were actually discussing this in a staff meeting this morning. We were also talking about introducing in room breakfast hampers. We already have the espresso coffee machines, so this might be a good extension to that service. We will also consider your comments about the number of Austar channels too, so thank you. Hope to see you again.

We stayed at Rumba for our second stay and had a fantastic time. The apartments are huge and have everything we need. Our unit had a spa bath and large balcony with a great view of the river mouth. It was busy and we were expecting a lot of noise but it was surprisingly quiet and we had a great stay. The staff were great and the unit very clean - everyone did a brilliant job. Speacial thanks to Bob Buckland and his team. These guys run a great resort!

We have just arrived home from a 4 night stay in Rumba and would love to have stayed so much longer. We got a great deal on Wotif deal of the week and stayed in a 2 bedroom spa apartment overlooking Bulcock Beach. The apartment was immaculate, very clean and functional and looked just as the website photos!
The location was brilliant, Bulcock Beach is pretty and sheltered, great for little kids swimming. One day we were spoilt by a dolphin show, right close into shore. The foreshore area is great, nice walkways, BBQs and picnic tables to enjoy dinner as the sun goes down. Having a good variety of cafes and resturants nearby meant not having to take the car out but just walking down the street and deciding where to go.
The large pool was being renovated (looks like it will be finished soon) but as that was un-heated it didn't bother us at all. The large heated lap pool was frequently visited as was the huge spa. The lap pool has portholes looking down into Hogs Breath below and onto the footpath below so this provided the children and adults alike much entertainment. My husband even went and bought some goggles so he could join in.
The apartment had everything we needed, although we didn't eat in much (only breakfast), it would have been very adequate for cooking up a meal. The beds were comfy and we appreciated the choice of pillows. Although when the beds were made up, the pillows were all mixed up again so we had to sort through which one was which again! The children enjoyed having their beds made for them each day and would come home in the afternoon excited to see where their teddies were placed!!
The staff were friendly although we didn't need them much, had all we needed. They were able to provide us with maps and information on the local area. There were bikes to hire at reception which would have been great however there were only adult ones (with some child seats on back) but none suitable for our 7 year old.
All in all, we loved Rumba Beach Resort and would be happy to come back again..........and again!!

Room Tip: Get a beach front apartment for the best views of the beach, tower B or C.
