We have been here a few times and every time I walk in the door of a Rumba Apartment, I'm so at home, so relaxed and so impressed. The rooms are spotlessly clean, the lounge, dining and kitchen are set up great and it has all the comforts of home. Beautiful view of Bulcock Beach from the roomy balcony. The...

We stayed for 4 nights in a 2 bedroom ocean apartment. The apartments are well-appointed with everything you'd need to self-cater for a stay, if you chose to do so. The bedrooms are very spacious with king beds in both rooms (or twin singles if preferred). We opted for the second room to have a king size bed which attracted...

The rooms are very modern and well appointed but we found the sound travelling from other guests a bit of an issue. For example when someone opened a tap or flushed the toilet upstairs we could hear it in the bedroom also people walking around on the tiled floors. We also had an issue with the pay TV but the...

Thank you for providing a detailed and helpful review. We don't get many comments at all about noise transference, so not sure what went wrong there. So glad you had a great time overall. Cheers, Bill.

Was a bit disappointed that we couldn't get a 1 bedroom on beach front. Bedroom was at the back of apartment no balcony. I would definitely book a bigger apartment next time. Great bathroom. Bed a bit uncomfortable and pillows not great. Not sure if I would go back not a lot to do.

Thank you for reviewing Rumba Resort. As you've mentioned, we only have two and three bedroom Ocean Apartments, so sorry about that. Booking one of these will certainly get you the views you were hoping for. Depending on what you're looking for, there really is lots to do around Caloundra. Bike riding around the Coastal Pathway is a great activity....

We had a two-bedroom ocean view room on the top floor on the south end of the Resort. The views were absolutely gorgeous and the apartment was perfect. We had everything we needed for a relaxing holiday. Loved the Nespresso machine and having a washer and dryer. We had free Wi-Fi that was good enough for everyone in the family...

A superior experience from the moment of check-in until we reluctantly left. The reception staff were friendly and welcoming. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment that left us wanting for nothing. Everything was of the highest quality and very comfortable. The heated lap pool was the highlight of my stay, complete with a glass end that overlooked the esplanade...

Thank you so much for this honest review. We are looking at a solution for the banging sound that can be annoying when we're really busy, and in times in high wind. Please be assured that we will find a solution. Regards, Bill.
