Nice spot, can snorkel out the front. Staff were helpful when approached but didn't go out of their way. Cost of incidentals was disappointing ie free snorkel gear limited to 2 hours or charge applies. No hot buffet breakfast available.

This is a huge resort that has 9 buildings to stay in. Most don't have views of the water or garden. Our room was not cleaned for 2 days. The pool in my backyard is bigger than the pool here. Their is drumming lessons next to the pool which does not help you relax. You can see the same dancers... More

Two of us stayed at the Edgewater in 2013. It was a totally relaxing experience because our expectations were not high. The Edgewater is well located, although you can't get far from anywhere in Arorangi, as it is easy to get to town. The room was clean and comfortable. We sat each night sipping wine on the balcony overlooking the... More
