“Best accommodation in Rainbow Beach”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

Great place to stay to enjoy Rainbow Beach and surrounding attractions. Easy walk down to the shops and eateries - with lots of good quality dining options for such a small town.
We were only 2 people and they closed off the other 2 bedrooms to make it a one bedroom apartment. Modern, clean apartment with a stunning beach view. A bit steep in price but the apartment and fit-out warrant it.

Lots of activities to choose from in town for young and old. Then there is the beach driving if you have a 4 wheel drive - with a choice of drives - coastal and in national parks. We just enjoyed being so close to unspoilt nature. Rainbow Beach in my view is the undiscovered jewel and much more appealing than the over commercialised Noosa which is just to other side of Double Island Point. Definitely recommend it for a weekend or longer holiday.

Room Tip: All the rooms look out onto the sea. So no matter which one you get its a winner

For our first stay at Rainbow Beach we couldn't have asked for a better apartment. Even though we arrived two hours before the check in time were able to go straight to our apartment without any hassles. Other than a very tight car space and the cleaning left a little to be desired everything was great and we would definitely recommend Rainbow Sea Resort.

My partner and I stayed with a group of friends in the two-level three bedroom exec apartment. There is a very big wow factor with high ceilings and multiple outdoor entertaining spaces. I took 180 photos of views and sunsets in two days - amazing vantage point to watch the sun go down. With two serious cooks in the group, we were pleasantly impressed with the basic, but quite adequate range of cooking gear - often a failing in other apartments. We've stayed here before in one of the single bedroom apartments and were really impressed, but this stay was even better and we are looking forward to going back and taking a similar apartment to we can invite friends and relax.

We stayed here last visit to Rainbow Beach and totally enjoyed the experience with well furnished, clean and comfortable rooms and the best view from the balcony. It was a shame our stay was so short and we can't wait to come back for another visit.

This was our second stay in "Ocean View" at Rainbow Sea resort. This is one of the best views in Rainbow Beach. If you need a break for everything then this is the place to go, with only limited shops and places to eat it certainly is relaxing. Walks in the rainforest and up to the coloured sands is a must do, but we found the best entertainment was sitting on the large balcony looking at the water with a good book.... we will be back.

Room Tip: They all face the water, you can't go wrong!

my partner and i recently stayed at rainbow sea resort. we have stayed there before and enjoyed it equally as much this time. the views are amazing and the rooms are spacious and well equiped. we checked in on saturday after lunch which meant we just picked up our key from the safe. i returned the registration card to reception on monday morning and we were checking out that day. i asked about a late check out as i hadnt thought about it before and i was told it was no problem and was 12 oclock ok. that suited us fine and there was no extra charge. some people have complained about having to take your rubbish out but seriously if you have a car (which most people will) you have to walk past the bins to get out so it wasnt a problem for us. a good relaxing weekend.

Room Tip: take most of your food, the food works is very expensive and the staff are rude. there are a range o...
