Paradise does exist! beautiful Cook Islands! still unspoilt by western commercialism. the Edgewater at first sight seems a little outdated BUT once ensconced in our upgraded suite the place became everything we had wanted. wonderful friendly staff who couldn't do enough for you. the Edgewater is close to several other eateries(within walking distance) all fabulous! the bus (clockwise and anticlockwise)...

Not a great place to stay if you need sleep. We stayed in a garden villa and a garden room and were exposed to dogs barking, bad karaoke, local party noise, a fight, noisy staff and unwelcome phone calls, weed whackers, construction noise and worst of all the ROOSTERS going at all hours. Not exactly restful. Otherwise is average and... More

The room was basic and a little tired. Staff need to be coached on customer service. It is a laid back holiday where we read, snorkeled and rested which is what we needed. I was disappointed that the island night had a western carvery and next to no tropical fruit available. If I went to the cook island again I... More

We didn't stay at Edgewater, but we went there twice for events linked to a wedding. The first was the 'Island Night.' It was a vey expensive waste of money. Cocktails and other bar prices at Edgewater are off the wall--50% higher than elsewhere! The island feast was, overall, pretty mediocre. Rukau (taro leaves cooked in coconut cream) was nice,... More

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

On returning 10 times to Rarotonga Staying at the Edgewater Resort & spa with Up grades to deluxe beach front rooms is amazing. So friendly, clean and so central. Holidays of a life time. We will be returning.

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
