Recent guest reviews

Very friendly & professional staff. Easy checkin & check out. Free onsite parking. Modern,clean comfortable apartments. Best location in Caloundra, walk to beach & town. Great cocktail bar downstairs, happy hour, Tapas & live music on the weekend evenings.

Stayed at the Rumba Resort for a couple of days to recharge. From the time of booking the staff were very professional and efficient. I like the way they keep the customer advised by text messages with early check in (when room available). Check-in was speedy and again the staff were accommodating. We were lucky and score a room with a sea view (405) from our balcony. But a lot of the rear rooms are behind the resort walls/structure and obscured from view. They kept us advised throughout the stay via text again with regards to happy hour and entertainment (I know it is advertisement but a special/personal touch). Our room was spacious (1 bedroom spa room) and clean. Location was great and external restaurants and bars are plentiful. The entire stay was excellent but I question if it is value for money. But overall quite enjoyable and relaxing.

Loved our stay at Rumba Resort!! Great staff, great room and pools. In a great location. Opposite the beach and lots of choices for food places downstairs. We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite and it was lovely. We had a beach front room and serviced daily by staff. Would definitely come back to stay.

I came here for holidays with my family we didn’t no the area or resort. We were very happy with the location and facilities, the pools are great for kids lots of places to eat and the rooms are spacious. Overall a good place with friendly staff.

The resort is fantastic, clean and very friendly staff. Rooms are great and would happily refer to anyone. The standout for me though was the service and friendliness from Isaac the pool bar manager, he made our stay even more memorable and would highly recommend to anyone spending an afternoon by the pool supplied with his great drinks and service. We will definitely be back. Cheers Mark

This place is beautiful, surroundings are clean, staff are polite, the biggest shout out to Issac who works in the 26 degree bar, he is extremely nice, goes out of his way for you!! He really made our trip here even better!! A great guy

Our room was beautiful, the resort was spotless, and the front reception staff, bar staff, and housekeepers were lovely and always helpful. However, I would call it more of a very well maintained set of apartments rather than a resort. There is no room service. There are no restaurants on-site (although there are plenty of restaurants just down the stairs from the pools). Lunch at the bar is only available from Wed-Sun, and the bar closes early. The breakfast option is (fresh) muffins, toast, and a few pieces of fruit. We had really good tapas from the bar on a Sunday night, but this is only available for live music events. Many of the balconies have a nice view of the water at Bulcock Beach, but the noise from the air conditioners encouraged you to seek the quiet of the lounge room with the door closed. Overall, a nice stay, but overpriced for what is essentially a lovely room and pool.

We booked an ocean view two bedroom spa apartment. Great views of the ocean and not noisy at all being above the restaurants. In fact, very handy indeed. The staff were happy which makes for an enjoyable interaction. Love it when someone remembers your coffee order in the mornings. The market I. The weekend is a must - genuine salami, farm honey, coated macadamia nuts - nice. The sporty should do the Caloundra jet ski with Ken. Good humour makes this an enjoyable experience. He was very encouraging with noobs. Loved this place.

Having read reviews on this site, we were most disappointed with our stay here. We stayed 8 nights in a 2 bed spa apartment. At first glance the apartment seemed fine, very modern and clean. HOWEVER Furniture inside and out was uncomfortable. Bedrooms had only a small high level window facing onto the corridor, this was the case with all apartments because of the design of the place.Bedrooms were like cells. The sitting area around the pools was very limited in space. No garden area. In my view this set up does not constitute a "resort". We had requested an apartment where we could enjoy some peace to read and have a drink. Although the on we got was at highest level and did have glimpses of the sea, the main view was equipment for a/c etc on roofs of sea facing apartments. The equipment was noisy and made sitting on balcony less than ideal. Had this been pointed out to me I would have upgraded to ocean view. Didn't opt for this originally as thought they would be noisy being over restaurants. Because apartments are individually owned, there is no courtesy room facility. I understand this but don't understand why there is no private shower and changing area either adjacent to pool or near the function suite. We had to leave our room at 11 ,weren't being collected until 4 and had a 23 hour journey ahead of us! On the plus side, beds were comfortable , bathrooms excellent and kitchen very well equipped and full instructions on using equipment which was good.

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment for 5 nights & we can’t fault anything at the resort from the staff through to wi-fi everything was fantastic. Would stay here again & highly recommend the resort.
