Reviewed 18 April 2014 via mobile

We'd highly recommend Rumba as one of the best places to stay in the area. We had it recommended to us and have not been disappointed.

The resort is nice and modern with great pools (incl a heated one). You can tell management take pride in presenting a professionally run resort. The rooms all seem nice and modern too - ours was.

And the resort is located in a great position - beaches, shops and restaurants all within 50m. And Bulcock beach is a great one for young kids like ours - patrolled and no waves. But if you like waves they are just around the corner.

The Sunshine Coast is a great spot with so many great beaches - very spoilt for choice. And of course fantastic weather!

We're having a great stay and would highly recommend.

Go here instead of the Gold Coast!!!

Stayed: April 2014

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!

We had a one night stasy in a one bedroom appartment on the 5th floor great views. We found the staff very friendly, the location was excellent with may restaurants to choose from. Our room had breakfast included which was provided by the Coffee Club at the Resort. We found this very handy with great choice of food.
Would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Have a room with a view.

My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights and it was very good.

We had an apartment on the top floor looking out to the water which was nice. Our apartment was clean and the only thing we had to ask for was extra towels.

Lea at check-in was excellent and couldn't do enough to help us when we got there. I like staying here because of the friendly staff, big pools & spa and the free undercover parking.

Our neighbours were quite noisy unfortunately but you could get there at any hotel.

*TIP* If you haven't booked direct with the hotel, give them a call a few days before hand to advise your mobile number as they send you a text when your room is ready - I received a text at 1230pm saying we could check-in.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the top floor over looking the ocean.
