This is a fantastic place for a family holiday we took our 4 grandchildren aged 5 to 12 so many things for them to do. The staff were amazing and friendly and helpful. The massage was wonderful. Thank you Edgewater for a great holiday. We will return. :))

My partner, our 5year old daughter and myself stayed here on 29/12/14 before we flew out to one of the outer islands for a few days. Then returned back on 6/01/15 and stayed for another 10 days. This is the 3rd time in 4years that my family has stayed at Edgewater and each time we haven't been disappointed. The staff... More

We stayed 7 nights at the Edgewater. The rooms are serviced daily which is nice though the timing can vary from 10am-3pm so if there is a specific time you wish to get it done, you can enquire at reception. We had a lagoon view room which is lovely, but can be very noisy as it is next to the... More

I stayed for 5 days with a whole bunch of friends in one of the villas. The villas were great, very large with plenty of beds and the kitchen was spacious and well equipped. The continental breakfast was also one of the best I've had, and you can also order a hot breakfast and pay for it if you wish.... More

We spent 12 nights at the Edgewater and on our arrival (mid January) we requested a room upgrade from Garden-view. To our delight we were given a beach front deluxe room and were simply thrilled! Our room was very spacious. The Edgewater is a casual and comfortable resort suitable for all. The place is tidy however a little bit on... More

Not sure if the reservations staff at Edgewater were having a joke but we were allocated Villa 13, for our 13 night stay. Perhaps this wasn’t our lucky number as it rained 7 days out of the 13. In spite of the weather we still had a wonderful time in Rarotonga. We all thoroughly enjoyed the snorkelling straight off the... More

I wouldve rated this a three star had we not received the welcome we did when we arrived. There was an extrmely rude european handling bookings at the front desk and ive never been treated so rudely in my life. It really puts a dampen on your evening when it gets off on the wrong foot. Other than that, food... More

Stayed here in 2011, but TripAdvisor won't let me put that date in. Arrived in the middle of the night, as one tends to in Raro, and it was a relief to get to our rooms. Thankfully the Edgewater is close to the airport. Enjoyed the snorkelling, breakfasts, and the general environment. We had a very basic room, so I... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay for Christmas in December 2014. From the moment we arrived everything flowed perfectly. The room was awesome, a beach front deluxe suite on the ground floor. The beach is literally 5m from the door and the spa bath very relaxing after long days of snorkeling. The lagoon in front of our room is perfect for... More

We recently stayed at the Edgewater for two separate nights, one at the beginning of our Rarotonga holiday and one at the end of the trip a week later. We stayed in a private house in Muri in-between. This is the second time I have stayed here in the last few years, so I knew what to expect. It is... More
