Reviewed 9 June 2014

We stayed for 2 nights, 6 and 7th June 2014. The room was lovely and clean. The bed was devine! and the choice of different height pillows a real bonus and lovely added touch! The spa was a great size for a couple. Very close to all restaurants and beach and just a minute walk to the main street. Very quiet considering it was a long weekend and you could hear the noise outside but inside the room you couldn't hear a thing. Will most definately stay again next time we decide on a trip away to Caloundra!

Check-in was easy and the room nicely appointed. However, the TV in the bedroom was mounted on a side-wall and basically impossible to watch from the bed. I'm not sure why it was mounted in this way and didn't notice any way for it to swivel. Very strange.

The bed was otherwise comfortable and the room was quite large.

The italian restaurant downstairs was excellent! I do recommend eating there.

The spa in the room is a nice touch, overall relaxing stay.

Thank you for writing such a positive review. It's very much appreciated. Apologies for the problems you experienced with the TV. I know there is one of our floor plans where it was decided the best place for the TV was on a mounting. This being due to the location of the built-in robes. So glad to hear that everything else with your stay was enjoyable.

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.

Firstly, thank you for taking the times to write us such a great review, really appreciated by the staff. We will follow up with the pool bar management too, normally the service is excellent so I don't know what happened there. Regards, Bill.
