Just returned from a fantastic two nights @ Rumba and I'm so relaaaaaxxxed aaaahhhh :)
Although Rumba was a little out of our price range, we wanted to splash out on the best and get away from the hustle & bustle of daily life for a long weekend so we put all our money on this horse and won jackpot! Although we only booked a resort spa suite and the resort was booked out, I asked for a beach view room when booking and alas were granted our request...room 301 overlooking the beach. Tip: Most resort spa suites are in the back block and are behind the larger beachfront suites so only have a pool view. But rooms ending in 01 pop out the side so you will get a great view of the beach and boardwalk!
The rooms are huge and could easily fit two couples, an extra bathroom that we didn't even use. Full kitchen with everything provided. Loved watching the sun set on the huge balcony overlooking the water. Bliss! Plenty of car parking, a short stroll to great restaurants. Other reviewers mentioned being given discount vouchers for Restaurants nearby...I never got any so was a little bit disappointed to miss out on those.
The pool facilities were amazing, much much bigger than the photos show. Management: would love to see a barbeque area set up as I'm sure families would make good use, that seemed to be the only touch missing. Entrance and lobby were fresh & clean. Only downside for us was the daily morning visit of the noisy rubbish truck at six or seven o'clock which meant unfortunately we never had a sleep in. But hey that's no fault of Rumba's.
Thank you Rumba for a great time...did I mention I'm so relaaaaxxxeed now?
