We had 8 nights at the Edgewater, we had a room that overlooked the pool and the lagoon beautiful views. The room was basic and a little tired, We did find it to be a little noisy especially on the night of wedding receptions. ( handy hint ask for a lagoon view room) The resort has a daily bulletin with... More

My sister and I have just returned from a fantastic week-long stay here! It is a beautiful spot- can go swimming and snorkelling in the lagoon directly outside (and good snorkelling too, shallow but very bright and interesting fish). We were in the lagoon view rooms and found them fantastic! I see a few comments of people not being happy... More

First we were on ground floor garden superior unit in 600 block. After 4 nights we asked for a room change as we had noisy neighbours above & next door. Moved to 800 block on top floor much better!!!. Rooms are basic, mattresses need to be improved you can feel springs when you push down, pillows very stained and smelly... More

This time I visited Rarotonga with my kids and family. We were fortunate to be there when the resort had competitors for the Oceanic games staying. Once again the staff at the resort were extremely friendly and helpful. I have joined the Coral Club and would suggest others do the same if they are planning a repeat visit. I will... More

We stayed in a deluxe spa suite which was spacious and had great views out to sea with a good deck area. Tropical breakfast is average but you can upgrade to cooked for $15 (make sure staff know you get a free latte with this upgrade) which is good for a change as tropical breakfast gets a little boring.

I was on a working trip to the Cook Islands, and ended up at the Edgewater. If you have children or a large family, this may be the place. For charm, service, or a real Cook Islands experience, look elsewhere. This place is a factory: pull 'em in, push 'em out. My room was adequate, although at one point staff... More

Arrived to friendly staff to take us to our Villa. 8 nights was good and gave us time to do everything we intended to on the Island. Good swimming pool, tennis courts, games room and Kids Club which our grandchildren enjoyed and gave adults a breather. Evening meals were a good size and good quality. Children's evening meals were well... More
