Very nice. Our car broke down which forced us to stay and stumble across this magnificent hotel. We do plan to go back and soon to relax and enjoy our stay. The room was clean and very nice. Loved it.

facilities perfect, service extraordinary. Prior planning extremely diligent. Dinner afterward on the deck was joyous, although the food delivery a little slow ( I did grow up in NY though). Overall atmosphere very pleasant.

Grounds are beautiful and well maintained. Resort and restaurants are very clean. Upon check-in, we were told they were out of keys and we could only receive one key for a party of six. New keys were on order and the woman at the front desk said, "this is the second time this week we ran out of keys" .... More

My family and I stayed a few nights this past week. We had a great time at the beach and pool but the service at the restaurants was poor. After dinner one night we wanted to sit outside at the outdoor restaurant for dessert. When we approached the host and told him we'd like to sit for dessert he said... More

Aug. 20, 2016 Yesterday we checked out of Water's Edge with our 3 grandkids after a fabulous week. We have been spending a week with them every summer at Water's Edge since 2010 and consider it a perfect place to take grandkids of any age (including teenagers as some of ours are now). The beach is beautiful... not only to... More

Spent an evening and two afternoons at this property. We stayed here over 15 years ago and in my opinion it has really changed for the nesgative. Room was appropriate, although we were told that it was "on the water". Problem was it was one of the several units not on the water but with a water view. Second, woman... More

The Water's Edge Resort & Spa is an ideal setting for any length of stay. I was looking for a bit of pampering before regrouping with the family for the week ahead. I unwound with a facial by Carla, who has a soothing and gentle touch that nearly put me to sleep. Her scalp massage was unbelievable. The overall experience... More

We recently held our annual corporate meeting at the Water's Edge. Not only is the location beautiful, the attention to detail we received was flawless. Carol Catrini, the Corporate Sales Manager and Nicole Schumacher, the Conference Services Manager went above & beyond our expectations. The food was delicious, and the wait staff and AV staff were helpful, courteous and attentive.... More

Friend and I went for facials- Ingrid was phenomenal and the facial exceptionally good. Italian facial products, lovely quiet room and attentive staff. No sauna but cozy robes and time to relax with tea and soft music. 50 min standard facial- $120; special anti-aging facial $150.
