5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Heard all sorts about this place. I certainly have no complaints. The villa was excellent, clean roomy, fully equipped with everything we could possibly want. Serviced daily, ladies smiley, obliging and friendly. The beach right in front great for swimming and snorkeling. Breakfast everyday as part of the deal. Restaurant meals were good and reasonably priced. If you were so... More

This was our 3rd visit to Edgewater, and will be our last. The shine has come off this place. I don't know whether its under new management, or has just had some internal policy changes, but the friendly charm has been removed. The resort used to be one of the best, now its just an overpriced, outdated, average place to... More

We stayed at Edgewater for 9 nights in August with a group of people for a wedding in Rarotonga. Our Garden Superior Room was better than expected, on the 2nd floor with two queen beds. The rooms are a little dated, but I found that to be the case at all accommodation places I reviewed before booking. On the flip... More

Spending one's holidays in the Edgewater is not like spending the holidays in the Cook Islands. This resort is a rather run-down place with the charme of an East Berlin concrete plate settlement with no resemblance to South Pacific building styles. It's also the only place in the Cook Islands where the building is taller than the palm trees, which... More

Our good friends stayed the next level down and were extremely happy with... More

We paid $490 a night for 10 night stay in a 3 bedroom villa. Air conditioning was to old to actually keep the villa cool. If we shut all of the bedroom doors it chilled the lounge and kitchen dining room. We were in Villa 10. Unfortunately we were close to the road so the karaoke bar started up at... More

This is our 3rd stay at the resort. This time we stayed in a Villa for 10 Nights and had my daughters wedding at the resort. Some of the facilities are getting a bit tired, BUT, the location and service of the staff is second to none. Some of the staff even recognised us from our previous visits. The rooms... More

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
