We stayed as a family of 3 for a school sporting event at Easter. We were part of a large group so we took up many of the resort rooms. We found the self contained unit modern,clean, with a well equipped kitchen & laundry facilities in each unit, central to shops/restaurants, a hop/step & jump to the beach, good undercover parking. Great size spa bath in ensuite bathroom, The pools were well utilised by all the kids & some brave adults. Plenty of room to share a meal in the unit with another family or on the balcony. Free WiFi a bonus.
Only negative was not being allowed to bring our takeaway meals and eat them around the bar as it was a private concern not owned by the resort.

Room Tip: Garden view/pool view are same inside as more expensive beach view, so just walk a few steps to get...

Stayed here over a weekend in the bottom level 2bed apartment. Was surprised how much noise I couldn't hear considering the boardwalk was directly underneath. There was also a wedding at the resort and again, noise was not a factor.

Thank you for writing a review that I'm sure other travellers will find helpful. Sometimes we do have noise issues, but generally the soundproofing is good. We love having the vibrant cafe and night-life scene in Caloundra now. It's great!!

Travelled to Caloundra for business and stayed here because it is one of the few places in Caloundra offering free wifi in the room - and a great location. Had a great stay and service was fantastic. Only problem was the dodgy wifi connection - an issue for me as I was here on business. Otherwise a great place to work and play - I'll be back.

After having received a nights accommodation to spend at Rumba, we were very impressed from the start. Eva & Steph on the front desk were nothing but friendly, helpful & professional - both check in & out. Higher floor, nice view, very clean, comfortable, modern & well thought out apartment style living. Even with the short stay we managed to see a far bit of the South end of town with a walk in the afternoon, a few cocktails by the pool after a spa & then back to the room for some sundowners & a movie. The Entertainment system within the room is also quite impressive, it does everything but vibrate! The following day were the local markets which were also well timed with a busy, yet leisurely mid-morning walk in amongst the differing stalls & other ambling punters.
Our only small disenchantment was the older woman who manages the cocktail pool bar & possibly chews wasps as a supplementary income, jacked up over me returning a couple of cocktails that were sub-optimal compared to the first couple initially ordered. However, i understand the cocktail bar is a separate entity from Rumba & should therefore not be judged as a part of the overall resort experience which was excellent.

Rumba resort was a brilliant destination for a 3-generation family holiday, including a toddler. The apartments were spacious and well designed - our 3 bed made it easy for my parents to have space from us and our toddler. Great facilities in the kitchen and dining rooms - better than most serviced apartments - and a great view of the beach from the balcony. Rooms were absolutely spotless and the staff were fantastic.

The pool was on the cold side but it was the week before Easter, which may have had some bearing on this! Anyway, it wasn't too cold to swim in, just a bit of a shock to start.

The location is seriously brilliant. Lots of eating options right downstairs, a Coles only a couple of blocks away and the brilliant Bulcock beach right across the street. We'll be back next year.

Room Tip: Pay for a beach view - it's worth it.

We stayed in a 3 bed ocean front apartment. Past experience has been good however this apartment was on the same level as the fish & chip shop extractor fan (stinks and is very noisy rendering the balcony and open sliding doors useless) and is above a bar which at 9.30pm on a Sunday night is playing music so loud the light fittings are rattling. No sleep for parents or children. Really bad weekend away. Disappointing.

Room Tip: Ask where your apartment is before booking!!!
