My daughter and I have had a number of excellent holidays at this gorgeous resort. The huge jacuzzi is brilliantly lit in the evenings, and the lap pool with the windows is always heated to just the right temperature. The rooms are lovely and the spa bath [with TV views] is fantastic. Love the Nespresso machine - I bring my own capsules from home! Staff are exceptionally friendly - especially Ella, who made my daughter a Frangipani hair clip one time :)
We'd be back again for another 10 nights this Christmas, but are heading to Hong Kong instead.

Many thanks for the great comments. You came at a great time of year. Christmas in Caloundra is always good fun. Hot weather and perfect for kids. Thanks again for sharing.

Last year we stayed at Rumba Beach Resort for the night after our wedding (we couldn't afford a proper honeymoon) and we had to bring the youngest child with us!
The apartment was spacious and spotless! The room was quiet and extremely well equipped - we didn't need a thing - it was the perfect place to relax after a big day.
We headed to Coles and hooked ourselves up with some food which we then enjoyed on the balcony overlooking the pool in the early evening.
Simply couldn't fault it - flawless.

Was supposed to be a beach getaway of luxury but was far from luxury. Pool bar closed, pool closed & room was not even cleaned fully each day. Great coffee machine but only provided 2 capsules for 3 night stay in 2 bedroom apartment.
No bathroom essentials were replaced and had to ask reception for more towels. What a shame as we paid a top dollar and expected a top hotel but was far from a 5 star accommodation.

The staff were very scarce and didn't seem like they were there to help. Will not be staying here again.

Firstly, thank you for taking the time to write an honest review. I’ve followed up on your comments and can only apologise that your stay was less than perfect. Our cold pool was closed for repair work and the pool bar was closed during your stay. We sincerely try and do our best for all guests and would like to offer you a half price stay on your next off-peak visit. Please ask to speak to Bill. Once again, sorry you didn’t enjoy your stay.

This was a 2nd stay again at Rumba and had a lovely time, we stayed for 3 nights, but could've stayed for a whole week.
Great location, lovely beach across the rd and a beautiful boardwalk to Kings beach.
Rooms are tidy and very modern, we stayed in a 2 bedroom ocean view
Will not stay anywhere else when we come up to Caloundra, pools are great and staff are very friendly.

We had a 3 bedroom ocean view. Great location, clean and tidy and really modern. Awesome fixtures and has a nespresso coffe machine too! There is an awesome little restaurant down the road too, I can't remember it's name, but it also does a fish and chip takeaway that they say is the best on the Sunny Coast... The cafe/restaurant is delish! Only downside to the resort is for its 5 star status, it doesn't have cable tv. I would say it is more 4.5 star, but still great!

Many thanks for your great comments. We are lucky with the quality of the restaurants we have on site, especially being on the beach. At Rumba, we try to deliver the best home theatre possible. This includes movies on demand (over 100 titles), digital TV and Austar Cable TV. There are 6 cable channels available by pressing the TV button a second time on the universal remote. Due to the number of inputs (DVD, radio, USB, etc) there wasn’t room for Cable to have its own button and so it can be hard to discover. We will now be looking for new ways to make this clearer for future guests, so thanks again for your feedback.
