The Edgewater staff were really accommodating and friendly. Rooms were cleaned daily. The resort looks dated but hey who cares, it's about the location and who you are with. No problem cancelling tours last minute. Food was great and they have happy hour every day. Or you can resort hop and extend happy hour. Recommend hiring a car rather than... More

The rooms are clean and serviced every day. The Edgewater staff are friendly and helpful. One of the highlights of the trip was the show that was put on by a pod of whales whist we had a drink at the bar overlooking the post card lagoon. Beautiful location and each evening we were treated to a wonderful sunset. Children... More

We paid good money for a rest On the up side the staff were amazing..the food and drinks were also top notch. Tip...don't go if kapa haka are there.....must... More

We stayed in the Lagoon View room from the 7-12 Aug. The room itself was okay. We had a nice view and we were nice and close to the amenities. The food was pretty good and there was plenty to do at the resort. When we arrived the room was very clean. However, during our stay the cleaning was not... More

Got a bit concerned when I read some reviews for this place so upgraded to a beachfront deluxe room before we left. Best choice ever as room was clean, bed was very comfortable and very relaxing to have peace and quiet within a busy resort but hear the waves at night. Wish I'd done my homework a bit better on...

We weren't staying here but went to the island night with buffet meal, It was good value for the meal and show so would highly recommend it. The show was great and the food selection very good. Island nights are on a Tuesday or Saturday and you must book.
