The resort is in a great location by a nice beach, but it needs a bit of a makeover I guess you get what you pay for, we just hired a scooter and went around to other beaches and ate T different places so was easy to base ourselves here. It's a real fa,ily resort if you are going as... More

My husband and I just spent 8 days here and had the best and most relaxing time. What we liked about the Edgewater was that although it is a bigger resort, it didn't feel too crowded. The swimming and snorkelling was some of the best on the island and you weren't trapped at the resort for meals, there were other... More

This was my second trip to Rarotonga and my second time at this resort and I will probably be back again. This was such a nice and relaxing back and everyone was friendly and accommodating. My partner and I loved having breakfast and dinner by the beach. We loved the fact that it had live music every night and we... More

I stayed here for a wedding that was at the location. The staff were lovely and attentive but we stayed in the Ocean Suite, like the top possible room and the bed was rock hard and I barely slept the entire breakfast. The tropic breakfast was toast, cereal and canned fruit. This is probably a good family resort but is... More

Stayed here for my sisters wedding. Lots of activities for the kids. Down sides was the floor is more comfortable than the bed and you pretty much can get drunk off 1 drink at the bar there because it's just straight alcohol. They don't know how to mix drinks.

Rarotonga itself, is a simple, beautiful place to be. The people are lively, funny and so friendly everywhere you go. The Edgewater was good. The beachfront view is gorgeous and the staff are so lovely. I was annoyed at the services on a Sunday. Understandable, almost the entire Island is closed down for Church but I thought the hotel would... More

Nice room with a balcony garden view. The area was quiet and relaxing and we could just see the ocean beyond the restaurant. Raro is a very remote island perfect for a couple's getaway. A few ants and mosquitos can be expected during your stay as you would in any tropical environment. (Actually the Caribbean is much worse for bugs!!)... More

Our family (6 of us) checked in for a week at The Edge Water Resort to celebrate my Mum's 50th Birthday. We were upgraded to a beautiful Beach Front Villa which looked out onto the gorgeous blue oceans Rarotonga has to offer - What a breath-taking sight it was to wake up to each morning. Villas were fully furnished and... More
