We stayed here a few years ago. Was well worth the trip would stay here again. For the price we paid i think we got value for money. the rooms were very clean and tidy. The pool wasnt very big but with the beautiful clear ocean in front of the hotel why would you want to be in the pool... More

You're on the sunset side of the island here, and what a place to be. We were kindly upgraded to an oceanfront room and from our bedroom window, we watched the sunset each evening. So very welcoming, the staff are kind, courteous and attentive. The rooms are lovely and each week there is a feast in the main restaurant along... More

Nice small room. Just for sleeping in. Would go back and stay at this place again. Has information kiosk right next to it too so you can book your holiday. People are lovely and the restaurant there is nice. On the beach too obviously and have an activity centre there

Rarotonga's people are as warm as its climate and that's especially true of the Edgewater staff. It was a perfect place for my wife and I to celebrate our 70th birthdays with cycle rides around the coast, paddles in the sea, strolls round the nearby market and shops, and meals in a variety of eateries.

The staff make this place what it is. Buildings or other structures are great but if you are treated kindly & the rooms are fine nothing else matter. This hotel is a short drive to town & has less winds & beatiful sunsets. Just relax, go with the flow & treat the people like family.
