We stumbled across 26 degrees bar and Venue at the Rumba resort, as we were looking for a bar to enjoy some cocktails.... It's bright and airy overlooking the pool, with a quiet sophistication...and a vey professional bar man.....the cocktail list was extensive...well priced....and they have happy hour cocktails as well.....which lead to a most enjoyable afternoon... I would highly...

We stayed here for 1 night before heading to Brisbane Airport. The hotel was very clean and modern. The staff were very friendly. We booked a 1 bed room, which turned out to be an apartment. The hotel is across the road from the beach and well located to walk to the town. With restaurants and coffee shops at the...

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.

A flash place to stay, with loads of cafes and bars locally. A lovely patrolled beach over the road, and really nice pools. One pool has windows in the bottom so you can look down on diners beneath, and a glass end looking out to the street. It was very clean and quiet, with all appliances in the room, including...

We stayed in this apartment hotel for three nights and it had everything we needed, fully fitted open plan kitchen including dishwasher, two bathrooms, one housed a washing machine and tumble dryer.

Our room was modern in furnishings with nice kitchen and laundry. Would have liked to be on a higher floor so we wouldn't look out over a roofline, but oh well. The bedroom was on the side facing the road, so it was quite noisy in the evening. My only complaint is that the daily housekeeping consisted of nothing more...

Dear jsmccul, thank you for the honest feedback. I will definitively follow up on this. Whilst we only offer a light service daily, bins must be emptied daily. Regarding the coffee, I guess we do as much as we can. We are proudly the only apartment resort on the Sunshine Coast that offers a daily service. Thank you again. Bill.
