Spent 3 days at the Rumba and it was fantastic. Check in was closed when we arrived. But the Night Manager was quick to join us after a quick phone call. The apartment we stayed in on the 5th floor was absolutely fantastic, from the spa bath to the full kitchen and laundry appliances. Beautiful views over Caloundra and the...

Large apartment with two bathrooms. One of the bathrooms had a washing machine and dryer, the other one had a spa-bath. Big kitchen with basic facilities; glasses, wine glasses, cutlery, plates which was cool but stainless steel pots/pans I couldn't really use as they were of a lower quality (I had to be careful not to burn our food). There...

Rumba is one of my favourite places to stay. It never disappoints. This time we went mid week and it was wonderful. Quiet and romantic. The pool bar is an amazing addition and dean the bartender was fantastic. Can't wait to stay again

Been here before with the family and in spite of looking at other properties the location of this place is to good to pass up. I asked for a water view room which I got but it was right at the end of the unit block. Overlooking an old house but great views of the water. Room 201. Pretty quiet...

We came to the Rumba for a 7 night stay with the family, fresh off a 12 hour night shift and a 5 hour flight. I mentioned to reception that I was keen to sit and grab a beer and was instantly presented with a complimentary drink voucher for the new bar. Great start! I had also organised flowers and...
