We wanted to experience a cultural food, dance evening in Rarotonga before we left so we choose the Edge water as it was half the price of others and what we could afford. We were not disappointed, the food was buffet island style, food was great and plentiful and the dance and drums and the singing was just perfect. To... More

I need to balance this review with a comment that we usually do small and intimate accommodation so maybe I should have done research up front! The resort must be the biggest on the island and therefore is too busy for us. It looks great for young families, less so for the older traveling couple. However the location is great,... More

I was looking forward to staying here for a wedding, the moment we drove up to reception I was disappointed, it was old & tacky, the VIP Deluxe Suite I had booked was horrible, more like a one star hotel room, smelly towels, old furniture I thought we had been given the wrong room but we hadn't. The breakfast wasn't... More

Had this opportunity to travel to beautiful Cook Islands in December 2013. Stayed for 7 nights at this hotel and had an awesome experience. 10 minutes away from airport and located right at the beach with crystal clear transparent water touching your feet. Very large premises, rooms are very well presented and had onsite dinning facilities and activities complimenting the... More

We came to the Edgewater to celebrate our 21st wedding anniversary with the kids, renew our wedding vows, and celebrate our youngest boy's 10th birthday! The Edgewater was a great spot for us. Being there in the quieter season we were upgraded to a beachfront villa which gave us three bedrooms for the six of us, big living areas, a... More

I had 5 nights, and it was lovely! Staff very very friendly and helpful, rooms were clean and spacious. Food was nice, and evening specials were good! Only down side was a lack of space next to the pool, so right next to the person on the next lounger and no umberellas for the mid day heat! However, it is... More

First time visiting Rarotonga. Staff were friendly and attentive. Room was adequate. Only hiccup when you put please do not disturb sign out, the people servicing the room would knock and proceed to open the door. Other wise facilities were great. Good to see security presence around the complex. Would stay there again. Lots of different activities for people to... More

Island bus came right into the Resort. Convenient location. Good snorkelling with plenty of fish. Our Garden room was set back away from the noise of the pool, restaurant and weddings,... More
