We have been staying at Water's Edge for years and the last two stays we were not impressed. We stayed in the new Villas and the room is very nice, but that is all you get. For 750.00 a night, no bottled water, one bath towel each and no night service. Coffee but no cream and sugar unless you ask.... More

We got married here on August 9th. Our wedding planner Joanna was amazing! They catered to all of our requests and went way above our expectations. The reception dinner was perfectly cooked and the portions were large. The views at all 3 outdoor locations were breathtaking! The rooms are a good size and very clean. Ours had a large jacuzzi...

We stayed for three days in mid August. Grounds looked good and at first look our suite looked good (clean but badly in need of renovation). On our second night if stay, our bathroom began to stink of cigar and cigarette smoke. We lodged complaints repeatedly, only to have a spray used to eliminate the smell. The offending party kept...

We were at Water's Edge Monday - Wednesday, August 18-20, and every day the beach and pool were overcrowded. After 10 am, it is difficult to find an empty chair and/or an umbrella on the beach or on the pool deck. The outdoor cafe often runs out of food selections that are listed on the menu. We are very disappointed... More

This is a family friendly crowded resort but fun and the food was surprising good. Staff tried but in many cases they were poorly trained kids. It is expensive but for our family reunion it was perfect and not to far a drive. Remember room quality, location and views vary significantly. The villa was amazing and very expensive, suites were... More

Water's Edge has a lot going for it but I really think it is time to redo the rooms or drop the prices! We recently stayed here in a waterfront balcony room that has definitely seen better days! The carpet was disgusting and the general decor of the room was dated. The view was obstructed by a roof and the... More

My partner and I stayed at Water's Edge Resort midweek for two nights. We had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay. Our water view room was exceptionally clean, quiet, and much larger than most standard hotel rooms. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The property is absolutely gorgeous. And although the beach front is not as large as a... More

We recently held our daughter's wedding at Water's Edge. We were more than pleased. The entire experience was first class. The accommodations were excellent. The rehearsal and rehearsal dinner were efficiently run and met the needs of about 40 of us. The wedding was flawlessly planned and executed by the Water's Edge wedding planner. The staff was friendly, polite and... More

We had a great time at this hotel. The outside of this hotel is beautiful, the views of the sea and beach are absolutely stunning, very beautiful. The staff was very friendly. We do recommend staff member Preston (waiter of the outside bar) to be promoted and receive a raise in pay! One thing: the decoration of the rooms (most... More

Spent two nights here and stayed in the Villas by the Sea. Travel party was 5 women. No husbands or kids. My husband and I have been to this resort 3x before, stayed in the hotel off season and I liked it enough to try the summer and to go for a stay in the villas. Villas are definitely pricey,... More
