stayed in late June. Check in was straightforward and staff were pleasant and helpful. WIFI was included and was fast enough for emails and browsing. Parking was also included. Our room was a 1 bedroom unit with an ensuite as well as separate bathroom. It was contemporary and modern (see photo) and would be perfectly comfortable and pleasant for anyone... More

This is our second visit and we just love the location, the facilities and the size of the modern Apartments. Just to be slightly picky the lounge suite was quite worn and for the cost to stay I really think anything that is less than perfect should replaced . Would still highly recommend though !

Thanks for coming back a second time. I wish you were here now. You'd be seeing 50 beautiful new sofa being installed into the rooms. We've had them in back order for months, but we think the wait has been worth it. They are really comfy leather suites. You'll have to come back again :-) Thanks, Bill. More

I had the very great pleasure of spending a weekend at this beautiful resort with girlfriends. We booked 2 x 2 bedroom apartments, and we all agreed our stay here was simply spectacular.

We have stayed at Rumba Beach Resort before and have enjoyed it both times. The apartment style accommodation is plenty big enough and you have own kitchen, dining and bedrooms. Free Wi-Fi is a bonus if you are interested in this. There is easy access to the restaurants underneath and you can walk along the esplanade to get to Kings... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here in September 2013 for 6 nights. Had a one bedroom apartment overlooking the pool and direct view of the water. Hired bikes from reception and also did some surfing, hired jetski's and travelled around while we were there. Had an absolute blast. highly recommended, would stay here again

If you're the resort time for a comfortable stay, this spot is perf location in Caloundra on the water... Shops, cafes and bar below. The draw back is that the pristine pools and spa are forever in shade, making it a lil too chilly for bronzing, and shuts at 9pm, thus little time to enjoy the exceptional water/light ambiance the...

We didn't spend much time over our two day stay as we were out and about the whole time, however the room was nice and clean and the staff were friendly. The service with our booking was excellent, couldn't fault it.

We stayed overnight at the resort and it was beautiful. The rooms were not only spacious, with everything you could possibly need, but they were also immaculate. The resort is in a great location just across the road from the water and above some good restaurants. Would definitely recommend this place!
