This resort of perfect for families with children of all ages. We stayed in room 502 during April school holidays and were pleasantly surprised to have some ocean view and a clean, well maintained and modern room. We loved the quality kitchen and laundry appliances, Miele, and everything just worked! You can go to many places where dishwashers are filthy and fridges very noisy and leaking, but not here. Our room was fabulous. 2 spacious bathrooms and my son loved the free wireless!
Pools are great also, although one of them was very cool this time of year and we couldn't use it. The Jacuzzi is quite spacious. The kids loved swimming the lap pool and looking through the round pool windows underwater, which see through to Hogs Breath Cafe, which is directly below the pool/resort. Lots of fun for them.
We enjoyed eating out on the strip of restaurants below Rumba, our favorite was probably 'Drift' for lunch and dinner. Try the fettuccine carbonara, yummy. Also book in for a dinner at the Thai restaurant up the road, worth it. Oh and the fish and chips at Sandbar are awesome too. You just walk downstairs and are spoilt for choice.
We also noticed that Rumba have excellent reception and cleaning staff and they run a quality resort, no doubt. Reception staff were welcoming and always smiling and willing to help. Rooms are serviced daily too, bonus. Management are doing the right thing with running this resort, keep it up!
If I had to say any negatives, the daily rubbish collection is quite loud and woke us almost everyday, but it can't be helped.
More positives, comfy beds, comfy leather lounge, free wireless, good size TV, great climate control in room, all rooms air conditioned and lovely balcony.
Thanks for an unforgettable stay Rumba!
