Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed a few days in a 2 bed apartment. Hosts Susan and Shane are nice people and are doing a great job.

The resort is a block back from the beach. Our room had an narrow beach view, somewhat obscured by the units closer to the beach. Higher floors maybe better.

The apartment was very clean and quite spacious. Large balcony.

Well equipped with very comfy bedding. Dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. Ironing board, hair dryer, ceiling fans and aircon the living area.

The pool is small but clean. Good for kids or a cooling dip. Sauna and spa are good.

Bath towels, tea towel, some sachets of clothes wash and dish wash powder supplied. Good enough for a few days stay.

Bring your own beach towels, shampoo & conditioner

It is in a very quiet location, we had zero sleep disturbances, which we appreciated, but the drawback is, it is a bit of a walk to the main shops and most restaurants. It's a trade off.

We'd be happy to stay again.

We stayed 8 nights at this fabulous resort. The location is perfect overlooking Snapper Rocks and the great surf break. Our room was spacious and clean with fantastic views from our large north facing balcony. You are only a short walk to 3 beaches and some very nice cafes, restaurants and shops . The resort Managers Shane and Susan were lovely and very helpful. The weather was not in our favour this time so we will be back , come and stay here and support all the businesses in this area who have done it tough recently , they will appreciate it and you will have a wonderful holiday… Kel, Lisa and Sherree

Another great holiday at Rainbow Bay Resort. Such a beautiful place. Our unit has everything we need and has plenty of room. The verandah is huge and has plenty of outdoor furniture and we love the BBQ area. Shane and Susan are extremely friendly, genuine and caring people who bend over backwards to help you.

There is easy access to shops, cafes and the beautiful beaches are less than a minute or so walk.

Will be back next year 😊👍🏼

We have been going to Rainbow Bat resort for years. Over the last few years Shane and Susan have taken over the management and really made this place shine. Resort is only one block back from the beach, has lovely (though obstructed) views. The resort is clean, tidy and they are working hard to keep everything updated. The unit we stay in had been updated recently which was desperately needed and it was really a pleasure to stay there. Highly recommended.

We returned for our second stay this year, and again the fabulous Rainbow Bay Resort did not disappoint , the rooms are spacious with fantastic views. The resort is surrounded by beaches , walks and places to eat, very well situated . A big thank you to Shane and Susan , our flight home was cancelled and we had to find one more night’s accomodation and they both went above and beyond in helping us out and it was very much appreciated . Our next visit to the Gold Coast will definitely include another stay here again ! Kel, Kody and Sherree

This is the second time we have stayed at beautiful Rainbow Bay Resort. We loved our stay once again and we will be back. The managers are so welcoming and friendly. Susan is such a lovely lady, going out of her way to ensure our apartments were beside each other and they was so clean and beautifully furnished. We spent loads of time in the warm pool and the spa. The location is perfect. Its in a quiet part of Coolongatta and very close to the beach and shops. Lovely balcony with ocean views. It just ticks every box. Definitely recommend taking bikes. Loved our stay! Thanks again!

We have just finished our stay for a week over the new year period at Rainbow Bay resort. We throughly enjoyed it. We have been staying for a few years now and love it each time. The managers are the friendliest people and everything is kept immaculate.

The apartment was great with everything we needed for our stay. The laundry facilities were a bonus. WiFi was good. 10 minute walk to the supermarkets at Tweed Heads, Coles Woolworths and Aldi. Nice pool area and a few minutes from a beautiful beach. Would definitely use again

Are there safes in apartments?
Answer from RainbowBay
No, we don't have any safes in the units

Hi Michelle, To walk to the Tweed Heads Mall takes about 10 - 12 minutes and the shops at Coolangatta are about the same. As for your choice of room, we stayed on level 2 in unit 11, which had a good view. Levels 3 and 4 would also be good. Suggest you send the managers an email (they have a website) and ask for a centre front room if possible, as they have the best views. Enjoy your holiday.........cheers.
