Lovely accommodation, good food, great staff and sensational sunsets!! Plenty of entertainment options and close to lots of things to do and transport. Very relaxing holiday and I will definately be going back.

Second time to the Edgewater since 2013.....We enjoyed our previous visit but found the staff much more friendlier & professional this time round. It was plainly obvious to us that maybe adjustments had been made because all the staff was excellent!. Georgie & the team at the coconut club & the guys in the activity hut keep up the good...

3 star establishment at 4.5 star price. If you like the sound of drunken neighbours farting and yelling, kids screaming and slamming doors, the rudest staff (Spaghetti Restaurant), then this place may be for you. I put up with the indignity of answering questions as to why I was travelling alone for 3 nights at the spaghetti place, only because... More

Just returned from a family group holiday, feeling rested and relaxed as one would expect after a week away. From our meet and greet , reception , restaurant staff to the cleaner we could not fault the staff . cheerful happy and nothing was too much ttrouble. The grounds we're well kept and maintained. The weather wasn't the greatest, that's... More

Just got back from Rarotonga, what a beautiful Island. We stayed at the Edgwater not far from the airport. Great 3star hotel to stay at if you have young kids. Food was great clean and tidy. The staff though good at what they do really need to smile moor. The most fun was the guy in the beach hut. A... More

I like the Edgewater resort as its very relaxed, clean and good value for money. The Beach outside the resort is both great for snorkling and swimming , lots of fish life to see and safe. It is quite a large complex but somehow didnt feel crowded, the gardens are lovely and the staff freindly, the pool is pretty average... More

We booked here after making an error with another booking. I had read some of the reviews on here before we booked, and personally I think it is up to the individual on what to expect. We do travel a fair bit, and stay in some nice places. The Edgewater was very reasonable in price. We stayed in a triple... More

This is one of those places where the staff make the hotel, they are so lovely and friendly. The facilities could use a renovation and an extra pool as they only have one that gets crowded. Having a family pool and an adults pool would be great! Also, the internet is way too expensive. The island nights are always great... More

Rooms - Floor and bench tops are clean but there is a lack of detail after that. We found sweet wrappers, clothing labels, hair elastics and a false eyelashes in our room. Walls and doors had marks on them and high surfaces like the top of wardrobes covered in dust. Dining - Had to set our own table for breakfast... More

We came here because friends were coming to this resort. On arrival the place is tidy and clean. We stayed in the garden villas. They need a lot of sprucing up and sound proofing. We had heavy thunderous people above us stomping and opening sliding doors at all odd hours. The channels on the TV are hopeless. Watching a programme... More
