Went up for A quick Saturday night getaway. When we arrived the room was not ready but proceeded to have lunch at the outdoor grill. The lunch was very good and the service was great . After lunch off to the beach for an adult beverage and some sun. When we went back to check in we were happily surprised... More

We were there for a family special occasion and the Sunday brunch was maybe the best I've ever had. However, our guest room was very dated and dinner was fair at best with frankly lousy service. The waitress was either inexperienced or poorly trained. Terrific setting, but won't rush back especially for the pretty high cost.

My husband took me to the Water's Edge as a surprise for my 50th birthday. The resort consists of several buildings which house the main hotel, as well as some condominiums and cottages. We stayed in a suite in one of the outbuildings. Our room was very comfortable and nicely decorated. The bathroom was also nice. The resort has 3... More

This establishment has a lot of work to do to ever get our Convention to return to their property. While we stayed there two nights the maid service threw out my entire bag of Toiletries (at least I am hoping they threw it out and didn't steal my feminine products, hair brush, contact solution and tooth brush) and when we...

Water's Edge is our annual timeshare vacation for two weeks in July, and we always end up feeling really good about our stay there. I makes all three of us feel renewed and happy to be at the beach! The service at the restaurants and bars is impeccable, and the beach crew are very outgoing and friendly. The beach is... More

Booked the royal suite hoping for a royal room with great sea view. Unless you are keen on a jacuzzi in the bathroom and a see-through fire place the room is not all royal. It is rather dark and claustrophobic with a rather small balcony and the sea in the distance. Although we asked for sea frontage rooms we were... More

Multiple disappointments with this well-regarded resort that I recommended to family while visiting in Connecticut for a family gathering. Six family members stayed at The Water's Edge in three separate rooms and experienced poor housekeeping, i.e. had to request clean towels, ants crawling on walls, their hotel door left ajar by housekeeping staff and a $173 room service charge that...

Beautiful property right on the water. Very upscale hotel with nice rooms. The only thing that wasn't up to standard was the elevators, which were somewhat dingy and poorly labeled. Otherwise a very nice hotel. We had a day at the spa which was heavenly! The services were excellent with very friendly staff.

From the moment that we met BECKY PAUL at reception, we realized we are in for a wonderful weeks stay. The units are large with a veranda where you can sit and look at the sea. Big and well equipped kitchen with large fridge. TV'S in bedroom and lounge. Big bathrooms with bath and shower that had high powered spray.... More
