We have stayed here for 3 nights. We booked a north facing room so had some lovely sunsets. The apartment is large, clean, fully equipped even has a roof terrace with BBQ. Great location for the beach and the couple of restaurants here. As I'm writing this a cockatoo has landed next to me for a chat.......

Spent five nights in an apartment here, easy check-in with pleasant reception staff. Luxury, views of the sea, central to Rainbow Beach's shops and pub. Great pool! Everything we could ever want - modern, every facility in this very spacious apartment, king bed, full kitchen, laundry, ensuite, balcony, and enough starter items for our stay. We loved this place, and...

The 2 bedroom apartments are ideal for two couples and the private roof top terrace is the perfect place to enjoy drinks and nibbles in the late afternoon overlooking the beach. Can't wait to go back again. Will become a regular destination for us.

We had a great trip here, we had a 3 bedroom apartment and it was huge, modern and well set out. The hotel is right on the beach and close to the surf life saving club for a few cold ones if you like. Pool was good with a spa and barely used by anyone else!

Spent a little extra for this years family (2 adults / 2 kids) holiday and went the top floor which comes with a roof-top terrace.

Beautifully appointed apartment, absolutely loved the design. Pool and spa beautifully clean and the beds were amazing. Wonderful location with a great cafe (Coffee Rocks) directly across the road which opened at 6am for that early morning coffee. Hotel right next door with direct access from Resort. The grounds are tropical with greenery everywhere, a wonderful cool oasis.

We stayed for 2 nights over a weekend in a penthouse apartment and we couldn't be more impressed. Lovely staff that were very willing to help (even after hours when our card wouldn't scan) and beautiful clean facilities. Everything was clean and beautifully presented.
