“We Love Rumba ”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

We have stayed in Rumba a few times in the last few years, beautiful rooms, beautiful pool + view and great location!! You walk out the gate and are spoilt for choice for places to eat. The beach is just 10 meters away. The cocktail pool bar is a great idea, loved it!

Stayed July 2013, travelled as a couple

Just had our second holiday at Rumba last weekend and we all love it there. The view, the rooms, the pools, the car-parking, the location (best in town), the restaurants underneath and the design of the resort is brilliant. Caloundra is our favourite sunshine coast town and my whole family love it there. My kids enjoyed the bike ride along the esplanade which has some great playgrounds and the view over the passage and the ocean is amazing. I'll continue to tell everyone about Rumba and even though it was cold weather the heated pool and massive hot spa was a real winner with us. Cant wait to head back there in summer to use the beach in front of the resort. Please see the pictures of the view from our room (ocean and pool) and you even see the ships travelling along the coast - so good. Thanks!!

Room Tip: with a large family the 3 bedroom is the best and the spa in the main bedroom.

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!!
