We stayed at The Edgewater for 9 nights in an ocean view room. Overall, we thought it was great value for money, eg, handy to town, hire a scooter on site, bus pickups at reception, free breakfast, friendly staff. Peter from the activities hut is so much fun, we did the night life tour with him and had an amazing... More

We were not guests at the Edgewater, but we physically went into the restaurant to book in for the cultural show and dinner. We dealt with 2 separate people and neither seemed to know what to do to record the booking - our details were written on a note pad.With details of our accommodation (including room number), name and contact...

I did find however their buffet nights were on the pricey side. Cocktail hour was great but could of been longer. The room was spacious our only two gripes were our fridge was very... More

Our room was a walk up of a flight of stairs with no view except the doors of the block in front. Room clean, very basic, slept 3. Kitchenette so you could make a meal if needed. Breakfast was served... More

This is the second time myself and my partner have stayed at the Edgewater. Highlights: Located on an amazing lagoon - snorkelling is just fabulous here. The food served at the restaurant is nothing short of spectacular - Gold star to the chefs. On the negative side, the resort in some places is looking a bit tired - we had... More

I have stayed at the edgewater on business several times and it's always a let down. The staff are not interested whatsoever. If you want any food after 9:30pm, you're out of luck, there is literally nothing available. The rooms are outdated and because they host weddings almost nightly, it's very noisy. Would not recommend at all.
