We stayed 3 nights. This is a very noisy hotel. We were in a room on Level 2 which was above the bar area and looked out over the awnings. On two nights there were functions in the bar area making it impossible for us to sit on the balcony due to the noise. Each morning we were woken early...

If only we had of known, we would have moved you to other apartment in a heartbeat.

Rumba was very clean and well maintained and the staff are very friendly. The 3 bedroom apartment had heaps of room and had a great view out over the beach. The location is perfect with a quiet beach and mini lifesaving club across the road and a large variety of restaurants and ice cream shops directly underneath. Sunset is gorgeous...

Ideal location across the road from the beach. Coffee shops and restaurants just downstairs. Some rooms have ocean views others view the pool area. Clean self contained apartments. Only criticism is that our room smelt like stale cigarette smoke as they permit smoking on the balcony. Very unpleasant.
