My family of 4 had a wonderful stay in the resort. We stayed in the ocean view 2 bedrooms apartment. Room is very clean and the kitchen equipment are also very good too. The view is great. staff are friendly. Beach is just across the resort. It is an excellent place to getaway. Will happy to go back.

I have been a travel agent for 30 years and as you can imagine travel a lot and I am very fussy I found the Resort GREAT Firstly it is well positioned - in fact the best location The rooms are very well designed I loved the lay out of the Apartments We had a one bedroom it was spotlessly clean and light and airy The staff are very friendly and helpful There were bicycles for hire but we never used them Parking is free and in the building A tip for all you KIWIS book this property through your Travel Agent it will be the cheapest price you will get anywhere !!!!! (as I did price comparison on all sources)

We stayed for 3 days over the weekend in a 2 bdrm spa suite. We were not disappointed whatsoever. Standard is 4 coffee pods for your coffee machine (awesome coffee) and extras are $1ea. Rooms and kitchen facilities were perfect and spotless. King bed was ultra-comfortable. Cable and free2air channels were good although foxtel movie channel would have been good instead of paying $9.95 ea...but bleh, the beach was at the front door. Numerous eatting places downstairs. You get a discount card for most of the restaurants in the block. Folks were friendly as expected. Heated pool with bar. Happy hour for cocktails ($10) 5-6pm was inviting. Definitely a must for families.

Room Tip: We were in the back units..very quiet.

Having organised a total of 4 apartments for 16 Tough Mudder competitors and support crew, I was expecting to spend the weekend running around after everyone, sorting out key cards etc. Not at all! I called Rumba Resort in advance and explained the situation and they suggested that I emailed them everyone's name and they would then have each key ready and waiting on arrival...it worked like a dream...

And that was just the start. The apartments were, quite simply, fabulous. From the one-bed to three-bed options we were all blown away by the space, quality, views...and the amazing spa bath in each one.

The pool area was fantastic. The entire team (26 of us at that stage) met at the pool area on the Friday night for dinner (you can bring your own food there but not drinks if the bar is open). We had heaps of space without bothering anyone, and again the layout, furnishings etc were great. I believe the spa pool was excellent too although I didn't get chance to sample that.

I really can't fault this place. The staff are exceptional, the apartments are beautiful, and the price is more than reasonable. It couldn't have been better!

Room Tip: Three bedroom apartments seem to have the best view....

Wow... Easy convenient parking right out front! Check in than secure parking underneath, after picking up the keys, you open to the door to stunning resort style modern features. I love the lights everything is just WOW factor! The long pool is amazing and literally gives you a peak into the restaurants underneath! So amazing with helpfull resort staff! This is the place to stay with everything you need for a home away from home. New appliances and fixtures, a stunning kitchen, beautiful bathrooms and comfy beds and pillows! Highly recommended! I stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment that would be perfect for families, fantastic for friends and couples that like a bit of space... beautiful place on the sunshine coast!!! a true gem in luxury accomodation in Caloundra!

Room Tip: Ask for a full ocean view room, I can only imagine this would be more magical. Hire the bikes and di...

We stayed here on our honeymoon and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. The place was beautiful and spacious. We had the ocean view room which was great views of the beach and sunset. The Spa bath was amazing. Full equipped kitchen for those nights you just wanted to stay in and cook. Great location for walks, bike rides and local restaurants. Highly recommend the Thai restaurant down the road. Only minor was the pool bar was closed. Although didn't really faze us. Service was great. The girl at the front desk was lovely and helped us upgrade our room and hire bikes etc. Will definitely stay again. Would also be perfect for two couples or a family.

This was our second week long stay at Rumba. This time on arrival we were allocated a room on the ground floor, ocean view & right next to the pool area. Our room was spotless & well equipped, even though the view is limited being on the ground floor there was a lovely patio area to sit & enjoy the atmosphere & views. During our first night we discovered there was some sort of ongoing, unrelenting water rapidly flowing noise going right through both sleeping areas of this apartment. After a totally sleepless night I approached reception who were nothing but helpful in relocating us to another room. They were unsure of what the noise would have been but the next room was perfectly normal with no noise problems.
Being winter time & cool with it we were limited to only being able to brave the pools twice. The lap pool is fun to use with its swim up portholes & the spa a welcome hot spot to relax in. The larger of the pools was very cold so we did not venture in to it this time around.
This resort is in an excellent location for good quality take away food outlets & the walk along the board walk to Kings beach is wonderful. I would recommend this resort to families.

Room Tip: Not near the lap pool would be my tip.
