But then Raro is so small anywhere is a good base. The room with a garden view was far enough away from the night club and restaurant not to be affected. It was very clean and in July it was cool enough not to need the aircon. The restaurant meals are perfectly adequate without being special. The big glass shelves... More

We stayed a week here in on of the family bungalows. Good amount of space for the 6 of us but no resort. We hired scooters to get around the island and would visit other resorts to buy drinks and use their pools that were a bit more luxurious. The Edgewaters pool is small and average but does look out... More

Having just returned 2 days ago from 6 nights at Edgewater I couldn’t agree more with Natalie! Our lagoon view room was bombarded with loud and intrusive restaurant music most nights till 9.30pm. In between that there was the Island Night show, a private function, and some noisy late night drinking sessions around the pool. If we needed to drown... More

Sadly only had 5 days in Rarotonga this time. We had an ocean view room on 2nd floor and it was very nice, clean, comfortable and quiet. Had a lovely view of ocean only metres from room and balcony. Staff were very obliging and everything you need is at hand or nearby. Meals were quite good, activities and entertainment also... More

I stayed at this resort and unfortunately this was not a great experience. Firstly, regarding the room, it is spacious, but the shower is tiny and the beds are horrible. The bed springs dig into you and that meant a very uncomfortable sleep throughout our stay. Also, we got the bad weather over there so it got cold some nights,... More

So, we didn't stay here thank goodness, we were down the road staying somewhere much more relaxing and quiet. We came here twice for drinks and our friend's wedding and couldn't wait to leave. I think you have to know what you're getting yourself in for at Edgewater. This is a large resort with kids yelling and screaming and running... More

My husband I arrived in Rarotonga early Sunday morning . We were both excited to be in the Cook Islands but at two in the morning after a long flight all we needed was a good bed lucky for me we had two. As my husband snores it was a god send. Room was spacious and adequately furnished. Bathroom was... More

We stayed here in the 2nd week of July, to attend a family wedding. It was perfect as they provide a range of accomodation from garden view motel style rooms, to ocean view rooms that are a little bigger and then villas. The entire bridal party and family stayed at the resort which meant we could share meals together and... More

My husband and I joined with some 50 other bowlers to travel to Cook Island on a Bowls trip. We had a ball! "Uplift Travel" organised it and did a fabulous job! The Edgewater hotel in some of the rooms needs a bit of an upgrade, however the rooms were spaceous, with clean towels daily, good tropical breakfasts, and very... More
