We stayed in a queen room at Edgewater for five nights. The room was spacious and had excellent aircon, a major plus in the tropical heat. Compared to other resorts, it was such a bargain, and the resort wasn't nearly as busy and bustling as some others we visited. The restaurant staff were prompt and the reception staff were helpful.... More

The trip was great! With the exception of two staff members, the majority of the staff were amazing! Pros: Good strong aircon in the rooms - it was very badly needed most of the time that we were there. The bus that goes clockwise and anticlockwise drives in to the motel area and collects passengers - no waiting in the... More

We had a great stay at Edgewater Resort in March 2004. The weather was warm along with the nights. The meals in the restaurant were good value and the breakfasts which were built in with the cost of staying there were also great. Also the bar is reasonably priced in the drinks department also, but the price of the fresh... More

We only stayed for one night and then paid for another due to the lateness of our flight out at 1.45am the following day and a late check out was not guaranteed at the time of booking. This type of accommodation is not usually where we stay but was suitable for what we required. I think it is well suited... More

I stayed here again for work not of my choice. As I got into Rarotonga just after dinner time. I was in garden room which had balcony, nice to have that. I ordered room service. Food was not good for a resort, the curry was less than average and given they employ Fijian staff at the resort, I expected a... More

We spent a week staying here with some friends while we were in Rarotonga for a wedding and it was great! While it was fairly basic, the rooms were clean, large and very comfortable. The staff were friendly and really went out of their way to help you. The buffet breakfasts were good with lots of fresh fruit and other... More
