The rooms are out dated and run down, paint is pealing, the beds are ridiculously uncomfortable. We expected so much more for the high price tag. We spent over $100 on dinner for two and the portions were absurdly small and the food was horrible. Service was sarcastic and rude. We couldn't even get a good night sleep because the... More

We were there at end of June for 3 nights with 2 young children. We stayed at the Library suite so after the kids go to bed, my husband and I can still watch TV and relax. The suite has a balcony which looks out to the street, not much of a view but I know about it when I... More

I was in a timeshare. Chipping paint everywhere, stone steps chipped, old and dirty. Tired, not bright. Beach is so small. Rooms are dingy, not updated. Food is average at best. Landscaping is full of weeds. The pool area has patches of flooded water making parts muddy and slippery. The walk down to the pool is steep. Rental cabanas? These... More

Lets start off with the fact that this is a gorgeous property. It's huge, has great views, and has great amenities. However, with that comes a serious price, which is the total lack of coordination between employees at Water's Edge. It was impossible to get straight answers from anyone, and attempting to plan any sort of event was demolished by... More

My husband and I recently had our wedding at the Water's Edge at the beginning of July and I have to say it was the best experience of our life. From the moment we first stepped foot on the property, we received the best customer service. We instantly knew that this was our wedding venue. Our whole wedding experience from... More

Enjoyed a three day stay at the Villas at Water's Edge. Villa was direct oceanfront and on the top floor. Enjoyed sweeping views of the bay from our balcony. Two bedroom/ two bath villa was new and very modern, with no expense spared. Kitchen was equipped with Viking appliances and fully stocked. Decor was in soft ocean palettes of turquoise... More

So went went to this place for a wedding. Initially, we made reservations for 3 rooms, 6 people, and it was going to cost me $2G to just "be there" so we changed to a local sleep inn, which was 1/3 of the price....then changed back to the resort for 1 night, 1 villa. The setting is beautiful and overall... More

The Water's Edge offers some of Connecticut's best best vacationing/dining/event options. The views can't be beat. We've had several family events here and all have been handled wonderfully. The food is always excellent and the service very good.

My husband and I took a very spontaneous trip after a funeral near Boston. We had not investigated the property before booking - but we were ok to try and see. To be fair, this is a very old facility attached to some 'new' pieces. You can rent a regular Room from this facility or one of the newer condos.... More
