We decided to splash out the extra $ for an overnight stay at Rumba having had its location & facilities recommended to us. There's no doubt the location is superb right on inlet water front - ideal for families to paddle etc & also a string of nice eateries along the boulevard. However that's where our recommendation ends. Whilst the room with kitchen & dining area was roomy & nicely appointed, (mind you we felt bed was way too soft!) from lounge area the room was noisy so much so we couldn't sit on balcony & admire view between units in front of us. Our back unit faced the front block of Rumba unita & so we had to contend with the noise of all the air con units on the roof line & the noise of kids & people in pool area below. So we closed the balcony door & sat inside - making a mockery of the outdoor appeal/ views. If price & rating were 3 star I could accept the unexpected noise but not on grounds of this being a 5 star resort at $300 a night. I'm sure there's other places that offer better deals & value for $ in Caloundra.
