I am a bit torn on our recent stay at this resort! We stayed for four nights on a package deal. It was a lovely place to relax. Nice easy walk to the beach. We walked along the beach to 'town' for breakfast and then for lunch another day. Due to our stay midweek in February there were few people...

Hi jreimer4551, Thanks for your well-considered review of our property. Disappointing to read the issues associated with the kitchen window & the air-conditioning, and was hopeful that this may have been brought to the attention of reception? We are trying to identify your unit for remedial action on both counts. Sorry to hear about the neighbours kitchen renovations & certainly...

I stayed in the resort for two days and i thought it will be cheapest to most run down place in Rainbow beach. Turned out a very pleasant surprise! New, modern very clean and well organized! Great restaurant, access to the beach, pool and everything. The only thing missing would be wifi in the rooms but everything else compensated

We stayed at Rainbow Beach Resort for 4 nights. We were a short walk from the beach and enjoyed our early morning walks along this beautiful beach.

Spacious complex away from the main Rainbow Beach area. Comfortable air conditioned self contained apartment and lovely pools and close to beach and small drives to other areas.

We really loved our 4 day stay at this resort. It is in a great relaxing bush setting with 3 pools, 2 spas, a tennis court and restaurant.

Thanks Norah L for your review. The lagoon pool has a 'beach' entry into that pool for guests, which is a gentle incline half way into the pool for our younger guests.

Rainbow Beach is an idyllic spot with a great village feel. Our family of six recently spent an awesome week at Rainbow Beach Resort in a 3 bedroom townhouse.

Thanks Dea C for a great review. Appreciate your comments and look forward to welcome you back to the resort when you are next in Rainbow.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nature provides the setting and Rainbow Shores provides the perfect holiday escape.

Rainbow Beach Resort offers a range of quality Rainbow Beach accommodation an easy walk from the beach to natural bush land. There are three styles of accommodation to choose from, Apartments offer traditional apartment style accommodation, Villas are spacious and multi-story and we also have townhouses. All accommodation styles are within easy walking distance of the beach and resort facilities. At the resort there is so much to do with swimming pools, tennis court, spa, table tennis, bikeways and walkways, children's playground and much more. And with the beach only a short stroll away, swimming, fishing and boating can also be enjoyed. Guests and visitors can dine at the onsite Pavilion Restaurant & Bar and experience modern Australian cuisine in a comfortable, relaxed, alfresco setting. The restaurant is open for dinner 7 nights a week, or cook up a storm at the onsite BBQ area. The bar is open 7 days. There is also a convenience store next to the restaurant that is open 7 days. A short 300m stroll through coastal bush\land takes you to one of Australia's most stunning beaches. The beach in front of the resort has been closed off to traffic so you can enjoy long walks, swim, surf, or simply relax and take in the stunning views. Tours can be booked from reception, including day trips to Fraser Island, the coloured sands, horse riding and dolphin feeding. Or if you're feeling adventurous, try a tandem skydive or a tandem paraglide off the Carlo Sand Blow. ... more   less
