Highly recommend the Rumba Resort. Very accommodating staff for a very special weekend with family. Location is superb and the apartments extremely comfortable. Our families enjoyed the views and local restaurants and shops all within walking distance with glorious views over the pumicestone passage.

When people say location is everything, they know what they're saying. Rumba is in the perfect location! Located right across the street from Bulcock Beach, our usual beach. The unit was lovely, the view was great. The mattress was so lumpy and uncomfortable, it was like sleeping on a waterbed. The first night was loud, someone nearby was having a party well into the night. The wifi was not working even with the correct password and everything, then you couldn't talk to reception because it was closed. In essence this is an apartment complex, the unit we stayed is was for sale at the time we stayed. Maybe when all the construction is done it'll be better.

Like everyone who has visited Rumba, we were impressed. Great accomodation that’s clean, comfortable and had all the mod cons we needed. It had a well equipped kitchen, good free wifi and (though we didn’t use them) a washing machine & dryer). There is free undercover parking and the days we stayed in Caloundra we didn’t need our car at all. Location is great, opposite Bullock Beach and walking distance to the main shops, restaurants and even Kings Beach. It’s also a good base for day trips throughout the Sunshine Coast. We stayed mid week for three night during a pool renovation (which we knew about before booking) so were given complimentary new release movies as a small sweetener. The staff are very efficient and friendly - we had a great chat to the staff member running the complimentary breakfast coffee and muffin bar. Recommended and we will certainly return. We were in room 406.

friendly staff, clean apartment, good location, and high speed internet. The rumba is a fairly decent place to stay considering the current price point due to ongoing renovations. However I would not recommend the romance package add on. The package is described as “well priced” At $100 and consisting of sparkling wine, gourmet chocolates and rose petals on arrival. The package was underwhelming upon arrival and consisted of $10 -$12 Lindt Lindor Chocolates and $14 DeBortoli Prosecco, the petals were also underwhelming as they appeared to be a couple handful of rose petals scattered in the bathroom. I think the package itself is fine if more transparency as to what it would actually look like was presented but presenting it as a “luxury” and attaching a $100 fee is not ideal or anything I would recommend to others. Send your partner on an errand, bring items with you and set up the place yourself and save your money. I wish I did.

Resort is located close to the waterfront. We stayed in unit 418 We were in a group of six friends. The unit was clean and in excellent condition. Two bathrooms three bedrooms with king sized beds . The kitchen Had everything you need for dining in . The unit was long and narrow. Not homely or large enough for two lounges . We couldn’t all sit in the longe area together. This unit is not ideal for three couples. Reception was excellent and allowed us to check in early with all of our cars having a parking spot . Staff at the bar were friendly and helpful. Pool was been renovated Dining options underneath the resort were open for business. Easy walk to town centre and kings beach for excellent fish and chips.
