We enjoyed our stay though we still had the noise of the aircondtioning outside the balcony which we specifically requested not to have. The shower was not very good and there were parts of the bathroom that could have been a little cleaner.

Awesome location, lovely room

Fantastic place to stay. The only thing is that there doesn’t seem to be a gym in the hotel- it would have been handy when it was pelting down raining on one of the days

Great location for our family.

Pros: Location - we parked downstairs and walked everywhere - beach, playground, shops and supermarket. My wife liked the view and the ensuite spa the most.
Cons: Nothing really - we would happily go back again.
We booked Rumba Resort for a family getaway and it was perfect. The apartment was all that we expected - clean, modern, large enough for the 4 of us, self-contained kitchen to cook dinner, great view, cafe downstairs and heated pool for the boys when the beach was too cold.
