We had an excellent stay here and wish we had stayed longer. Very clean and well looked after with mostly friendly and helpful staff. Beds are very comfortable and it has a good set up in all apartments, even the cheaper ones. Pools are great and the jacuzzi is a nice treat. Better than anything else in the area by far. We will return again without hesitation.

We had 8 nights at this fabulous resort recently. All staff were great from the reception staff to the housekeeping staff. A special mention to Ashlee who was very friendly and helpful. Our apartment was perfect for our family of 5. The rooms were spacious and well equiped and lightly serviced daily which was a plus. The beds were really comfortable and the choice of pillows was excellent! For a family with young children it was great to be able to cook and have meals at the resort then pop downstairs for a quick play on the beach and ice cream. Even though it's a big resort we had no problems with noise from the neighbours unless we had the patio doors open and we could hear people playing in the pool which was fine! The only downside was the cigarette smoke we could smell coming from the neighbours balcony on a couple of occasions. The location is excellent with everything you need close by. We loved the beach just across the road and found it was a great beach for small children and adults alike. It was great having three pools at the resort which were all different temperatures so suitable in all weather. We would definitely recommend this resort to friends and family and hope to return in the future!

Room, cleanliness and amenities can't be faulted. They really do look after the property and it shows. Room was looked after daily and they really worked around us.

On the flip side, the resort is more like a retirement village and there is just no fun atmosphere there. TV's are all limited on volume, stereo system hooked up to the TV has the sub-woofer disabled, and any hint of noise from your room will either see a staff member looking for the culprit or as we saw, a permanent resident filming you out of their window with their phone!

There is a nice bar beside the pool but you won't find any information about it or opening times in your hotel info. Opening times appeared random and it just wasn't fully utilised.

Maybe it's me, but I feel "resort" should mean having activities around the pool and a bit of fun, especially during school holidays.

If you want quiet I guess this is the place, but I wanted to be outside and enjoying my time.

Room Tip: If you're floor 4 and down then you will not see ocean.

Hi Damian J, Thank you for your review. We are sorry for not meeting your expectations on this occasion. One of the most challenging aspects of hotel management is that balance between vibrancy and enjoyment for the more quite guests. In saying that, your sub-woofer certainly should not be disabled. Our maintenance team has fixed this fault. Once again, thank for your honest feedback. Bill.

We have stayed at Rumba a number of times and have never been disappointed. The rooms are fantastic and are well equipped and everything works as it should. Bulcock beach is across the street and there are plenty of food options on the Esplanade. Highly recommend.

We just had 6 nights at rumba and we enjoyed our stay very much.check in was easy,although finding the correct lift to our apartment took a few minutes. The apartment was an ocean view on the 3rd floor. It was spotlessly clean and new and serviced daily. All the appliances worked in the kitchen. It had free wifi and large TV. The complex is really close to restaurants and cafes and directly opposite bulcock beach which although it has currents when the tide is going out,has a lifeguard on duty and the water is warm. The views from the large balcony were great. My wife found the bed a little firm,but I thought it was okay.The largest very clean pool was a bit cold when not in the full sun,but the other nearby pool is very good. The adjacent spa pool is large and clean. We loved our stay at rumba beach resort and we would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Some balconies have more shade from the setting sun than others.the higher floors are probably quieter.
